So how is your student's eyesight? Is it 20-20? Are you sure? Do you really know?
During my time in the classroom I was continually amazed at the number of students who could not see very well - especially from a distance.
I have worn trifocals for the past 15 or more years. My eyes are four to five times the age of the kids' eyes. If I can see the whiteboard or projection screen from anyplace in a classroom, then students should too.
School is actually a pretty neat place. You get to take a test over for a better grade. Making As and Bs is easy - it is failing that takes effort. Well, real life really is not like that; in real life failing is easy and success takes work.
To help you prepare, here's a list of some of the things that you can expect when your school years are over. You may have seen this list before - it has been around for a while. But it is fun to read, and its message is worth repeating. Enjoy.
