Saturday Six – Episode 239

Here’s an idea: a set of six questions that have nothing to do with politics!


  • First to play last week: Connie of c’est 黃康女. Congratulations!
  • (According to the rules, “First to Play” requires you to be the first to include the link to the specific entry in which you answered the questions, not just the general link to your blog.)

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as “first to play,” you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. If you had to fill in as a substitute teacher at a local middle school, what subject would you be most comfortable teaching?

2. When you were in school, what was a better indication of your true understanding of what you were learning: class participation, the accuracy of your homework, or your test scores?

3. You meet someone for the first time and have a brief conversation with them. If you run into them the next afternoon, how likely are you to remember their name?

4. Take the quiz: Do You Have Gaps in Your Knowledge?

5. If you had “gaps” in your knowledge, did you expect to have them where they were predicted? If you had none, which of the listed subjects would be the ones you’d most expect gaps to be?

6. If you could go back to school for one semester free of charge and “try again” with any subject, which one would you choose and why?

If you have a Reader’s Choice question you’d like to see asked (and answered), send me an email! I’d love to be able to include it in a future edition of the Saturday Six.

I played this week!


Mine are up, have a great weekend!

Okay, sweet one. No politics. Is it politically correct to say a) I’m disapoointed and b) I’m proud of my second son? I am very proud of you, Patrick, for your intellectual curiosity and the courage you clearly have — to buck the S.C. tide. Add to that your fearlessness in loving. Loving requires much more of us than does war. You are well-loved in the Hansen home, and for good reason. re: Saturday Six: 1. Writing. Both creative and “How to Write an Essay”–both forms of communication are nearly dead. And they’re critically important. 2. I did fairly well… Read more »
Hi Patrick 🙂 Here are my answers… 1. Yikes! How about Introduction To Blogging? LOL. 2. I think test scores. I LOVED taking tests. LOL. 3. I am pretty good at remembering names if I meet someone in person, but sometimes I forget the names of those I meet on the Internet. It must be something about looking into someone’s eyes. 4. It seems I have 3 gaps in my knowleges. YIKES. Philosophy, Science and History! But I don’t have gaps in Religion, Art, Economics and Literature. So, I guess that is pretty good. FRET! 5. Yeah, it seemed about… Read more »
