What do school teachers do?
Kids read the bible. If a child misbehaved they would be caned, switched or got locked in a closet. If a child answered a question wrong they would stand in the corner and wear a pointy hat that said DUNCE. Teachers taught many lessons by reciting rhymes. The children repeated D/dog E/eagles and more until they remembered it and knew which letter went with it. They repeated what she said until they memorized it.
Why are school teachers important?
- Kids went to teacher's house for school.
- Kids only went to school if the parents didn't needed them to do chores at home.
- Teachers were not well trained.
- Teachers were sometimes the same age as the students.
- Many were poorly paid and relied on student's parents.
- Boys went to school in the winter and girls went to summer.
