Well I think that an important reson would be maybe one f my close friends geting seriously hurt and the school didnt want to do anything about it so I would protest agents the school at least. Helping in some way maybe like letting them get extra help or something
I think that an important reason that I would have to walk out on the CMT's would be if a family member has gone to the hospital or is very injured. I think that that would be a very good reason because I would have to be there for them just incase something turns for the worst. This a reason that wouldn't involve a peaceful protest.
A cause or reason for me to walk out on the CMTs would have to be important. Something worthwhile, like in the story how they stood up for someone else. If the CMTs were forcing kids who weren't able, that would be a good cause. Or if they were expecting us to get a super high score or everything right for us to be able to move on to the next grade without even considering us and how hard it would be. If the tests had nothing to do with what we were learning and it was all gibberish, that too. Another thing that would make me mad if they changed the rules to some freakishly unreasonable thing like if you miss school on CMT day you get a 0. That would just be unfair.
I would think cancer, a matter of life or death, is more important than the CMTs. I know its not all cancer, but it is the reason why he fails is tests and quizzes. It is kind of like a disability that Jeffrey has, so maybe he could at least greet more time to take the test.
This is arguably the hardest blog; well for me anyway.
I would never do anything like Lindsay and Tad planned. First off, I am not that risky when it comes to being "rebelious'' like that in school. But, any place else, I would definitely have planned a silent/peaceful protest. But, back to the essential question, I know this sounds so ridiculous and corny but,maybe if there was a fire drill or something along the lines of that. But, something that would be dramatic and something to remember I would do this---
If it was someone's birthday on CMT's. We could pull the fire alarm and the circus or something big could be righgt outside. Yeah, I know, "Adelina, get to my office immidiatley!!" and SUSPENDED!
Not, really sure about this blog...there is nothing really that big that could happen that is worth while to leave/ditch the CMT's. Also, I would never do that whole birthday extravaganza, I just wanted to be creative>??
I agree with what tad did I would do that for any of my friends or class mates if they had a learning ability not to mean any disrespect or anything
What they did do was very brave. Something to send me off to "walk out" on the CMT's is if the students were not being treated correctly. If a group of students or a student was being treated with heavy favoritsum or if they were not treated like a normal studndent. That would make me angry that a teacher sees one student more valuable then the others. Then the whole test would be unfair.
A cause or movement that would be important enough to walk out of the CMTs would be if somebodys life was on the line. The CMTs are the most important test of the year. It would take more than a lot for me to refuse the test, get suspended, or even expelled. I would only walk out on the CMTs if a friend was in danger or worse. It would take a lot.
Well i dont think there is any reason to walk out on the cmts because they are very fair unlike the testing they are doing in the book.
A reason that would be important enough for me to walk out of the CMTs would be that I would get an extremley bad sickness that can even lead to death. You would need to get to the hospital as soon as possible. Because of that, you would need to walk out of the CMTs right away.
If I had a reason to walk out on a statewide test like that the reason would be for something that I totally believe in. I would do it for something that I truly believe in. It could be for friends or religion but I would do it if it affects someone close to me.
If I were to walk out of the CMTs, it Would have to be very important. Some reasons could be that a family member got injured, if I felt really sick, and etc. it would have to be a practical and great reason.
Another peaceful cause or protest someone that would be important enough to walk out of the CMT's because of could be something like what Tad and Lindsey set up. I think that even though it disrupted a test it was very important. It was helpful to Tad's and Jeffrey's situation. Jeffrey and Tad had both gotten their point out to the public and hopefully they benefit from the peaceful riot. I think that is one of the only reasons that someone could start a riot in the middle of a test ( even thought everyone who followed in on the riot would probably get in trouble anyways )
Lets say my school didn’t have a good bullying policy. During the CMT’s, my plan would be to walk out of the room, along with the whole school and hope that the school strengthens its bullying policy. After that, our school would be safer and a much happier place. And people would feel more comfortable around each other. I believe that this cause is so important that we should do that.
To walk out of the cmts, a cause or reason would have to be something I believed in very strongly and forcefully. I'm not gonna be like " ugggh I wish that cmts didn't have to have number 2 pencils" and walk out the door. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't do that anyway because I would get in ALOT of trouble. If I felt really passionately about it I might but I cannot think of anything specific right now
Well maybe if someone was standing up for something try believed in..?? I'm not really sure what to do for this blog?! Haha! Also Tad and Lindsay could have gotten in a lot of trouble so it shows how much they believed in the cause...
Well. I think a fire alam or some kind of gas leak. I am saying this because school as much as it is learning it is protection. If a child in a school got hurt the question and or blame would go to the teacher. So if someone broke there arm in gym someone ether would ask that person or the teacher.
What Tad did was crazy to just get up a leave the testing room and parade out of the school. That takes a lot of courage because you have no idea what the teacher will do or what will happen with the testing. Maybe they all failed because of this. If I was to walk out on the CMTs I think that my reason would have to be big, the usual is getting sick. But to just get up and leave the test would have to be unfair. That is what it would take to get me to walk out of the CMTs.
