Hooker The middle school I attended (grades 6, 7, and 8) had just opened the year I attended, so the whole curriculum was astonishingly haphazard and unfocused (same thing happened for high school!). Anyway, in my second year (grade 8), one of our assignments for God knows what class (let's say math) was to create a board game. GRADE EIGHT. And if we had come up with something this simplistic, I'll bet we would have failed.
