important standardized test tip

April 11, 2007 at 2:20 PM

from the email at my elementary school:

"We didn't have the pancakes that was on the menu for breakfast this morning because you're not suppose to have syrup while testing."

Hmm..I wonder if this applies to practicing...I need to practice the first violin part to Ein Heldenleben this afternoon..with or without syrup?

ADDENDUM: I do remember once having a brownie sundae before a jury (that did not go so well)...

I can imagine the sugar high not doing great things for your fingers, or for your concentration.

Why should test day be the exception?

Wow, our school serves doughnuts for breakfast, including on standardized test days. And then they give the middle schoolers free breakfast coupons!

Teaching English writing is just as important as teaching music. Personally, I think teaching music would be sweeter.
