When I was in high school, we actually got to pick which English/Reading classes we wanted to take. I remember one on Greek & Roman mythology. Phonics, typing but not computers. Math, Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Language Arts, Art, Music, Phys. Ed., Health, Current Events
We had to learn our spelling .If we made a mistake our teacher would rewrite it with a red pen and make us write it 5-10 times .
We did the same old boring spelling, Maths& English ,But no Computors,Tv or Calculator .
When I was in school we started everyday with prayer and the teacher read from the Bible. I don't think that's allowed anymore but we did it everyday. Once a week we had assembly. I loved assembly days because we sang lots and lots of really fun songs and I loved to hear the gym filled with that music. I still remember some of those songs and I taught them to my kids. -Usually we listened to music off of records. The sound was very bad and if the record got scratched it would play the same word over and over.
Much smaller country school. We knew all the kids at school. No computers, videos, we performed 2 hour Christmas concerts with plays, carols, drills and recitations.A little school , in a little town.
