geography story

so we've been working on eastern europe lately. one of the terms we had to learn was "soviet satellite." we literally spent an entire day learning the term.

satellite: "A nation dominated politically and economically by another nation"

as part of the chapter, we had to learn and list the 5 (former) soviet satellites of eastern europe. (poland, albania, romania, bulgaria, yugoslavia) again, we spent more than one day reviewing the 5 satellites.

so, on the remedial geography test, we had a simple task: "List the 5 former soviet satellites."

one kid in mr. borash's class wrote one word for all 5:

SPUTNIK.


Oh man, these stories are never going to end.

I'll never forget grading those tests with Borash on debate trips. I remember one kid who used the analogy of making kool aid for almost all the answers.

Please explain in more depth about his use of the kool aid analogy for geography questions.

Also, who are you?
