And the Teacher Won't Know What Hit Her

V came home with the assignment to "write a paragraph about who discovered America." After a lecture about the land bridge between Alaska and Russia, St. Brendan, and the Vikings, we had just gotten to Columbus and who Amerigo Vespucci was when V had to stop me.

"It's supposed to be a paragraph, Mom, not a paper."

My children have a rough academic life.
