    They should have teamed up with that kid in the far right of panel 3. He didn’t stay home sick even though he’s missing the top half of his head.

    And so, um, in conclusion, the Russians were really lucky when the Germans attacked them.

    FAST PITCH… Thanks, guys. Yes, the bunt should have made it obvious. When I last taught at a rural school system
    in KY 30 years ago, they were playing slow pitch there. In TX, fast pitch was king. Over here in Holland, the American schools play slow pitch, still. The Dutch league is ALL fast pitch, even little kids down to 10 years old.

    Well done, wmac8898, 5/2.

    They go into that much detail about WWII?
    I was 50 years closer. We probably learned there was a war and that America won it.

    How will Ms. Brooks assess Rakesh? Will she leave herself open to an official appeal process? How important is this task?
    I wouldn’t make students present unless all members of a group were present. It’s meant to be a history exercise to see what they know and how well they can communicate it to an audience; it’s not an “attendance” test.

    I was hoping we’d meet Rakesh.

    God, I hated group projects in high school. Rakesh never came through for me.

    They could have learned everything they needed to know by watching the ‘Stalingrad’ episode of the BBC World at War series with animated graphics and Laurence Olivier narration. Jude Law in ‘Enemy at the Gates’ would have provided additional background. Soviet casualties were unbelievable. Combat, starvation and hyopthermia…..
