Test: 1. When did the pilgrims land at Plymouth Rock? 1620. As you can see, I’ve memorized this utterly useless fact long enough to pass a test question. I now intend to forget it forever. You’ve taught me nothing except how to cynically manipulate the system. Congratulations. They say the satisfaction of teaching makes up for the lousy pay. Calvin attends a history test. For the first question, he needs to know a date. He knows it and writes it down. In addition, he writes a long note in which he mocks the education system. He says that although the salary is bad, teaching might satisfy.
He’ll need to know that when he meets one of the pilgrims.
