Ok there DH...eff you then...
**DEEP BREATHS****DEEP BREATHS
Ah...so to recap..my SD is not the sharpest tool in the shed. Not by a long shot.....she currently takes general ed courses in high school and does ok in those with a lot of support. Her SAT...oofff..those were brutal. SD does not do any extracurricular activities...she does have a part time job now. So there is that...(interestingly it was the job "I" recommended at the start of her job hunt..but ok whatever)
Dh is found the river of Denial.....SD made the honor roll last sememster. Woohoo...right. *not to dimish this but her courses are not exactly that hard*. DH is over the moon...look she made the honor roll. Yep DH that is great....good for her.
Now...this year SD has an inflated sense of her academic prowess. She decided to take an Advanced Placement course...oh boy..saddle up people. These things are not easy....2 kids in honors taking a bunch of these..I got plenty of experience with AP courses. These are not your usual....read, memorize, recite...these are designed to make you think. You need to be able to think criticallly and apply what you are reading to related topics. Cool right...
Let me stop you here...NOT COOL FOR SD.
1. She HATES HATES HATES to read. And there are no graphic novels for this subject matter. Graphic novels is all that SD "reads".
2. SD cannot think critically. She just doesn't....ever watch a movie with someone that doesn't think critically. You have to explain the entire movie while they are watching it. That...is MY SD.
Ok...SD took the first quiz in AP...yep she failed. She didn't understand where they got the questions from. They aren't in the book. YA DON'T SAY there SD.
DH is all like....she asked the teacher and she told her to read the material again and come up with questions about the material. DH is all butt hurt...why didn't the teacher tell her what SD needs to do.
So..I tried to explain to DH..this is an ADVANCED PLACEMENT class. They expect you to be able to read, use critical thinking and apply your knowledge. SD cannot do that.
DH's response...I don't have time for a lecture Halo. I have to be in a meeting in 5 minutes.
OK THERE DH...EFF OFF THEN. Good luck and don't ask me anything about this stupid AP class. Good luck to you and SD.
He knows I'm pissed and tried to walk that one back. NO GO THERE BUDDY...I SEE YOUR TRUE FEELINGS. POINT TAKEN
So...EFF OFF DH.
