    What you should have said is "You're right. We understand learning through
    application. We're sorry for your loss." It is really sad how the "other"
    subject areas talk all about learning through application, authentic
    learning, portfolio and performance assessment, and go right on doing what
    they have always done. Except apparently a little less. I think I remember
    learning how to use a ruler to measure in 3rd grade. they may have taught it
    in second but i missed that grade. And when you consider that there was no
    art class, that means my "other" teachers have to have done it. Of course, I
    am pretty old.
