On a scale of 1 to 100 points, and with four lines for writing, no less. In my long public school career, I have never heard of such a thing. When my school students were studying privately, I taught them what the group was doing, would sometimes listen to what the private teacher assigned, especially if the child asked for help. I tried to offer suggestions with the proviso that they "check back with the teacher". Mostly successfully tho sometimes biting my tongue not to naysay. I have never thought in terms of a number grade for a weekly lesson, and at this point, after some years with the kids in question, am way past that in terms of professional but congenial and supportive two-way relationships. The teacher is now pressuring the kids, up to the point of writing notes in the assignment books I provide, that "Ms.J. needs number grades for the last three weeks." Your appraisal and comments appreciated, you bet. Sue
