I'm curious how you all respond to this question, and I'd like a little background information too, if you don't mind. 1. What grade/subject do you teach? 2. Do you teach in public or private school? 3. How do (or would) you respond to students when they ask, "Why do I have to learn this?" I'm not necessarily looking for "good" answers, but rather the actual answers that you would give. Thanks!
