Principal: Mister Schwartz, here at Unconscionably Overcrowded High School we provide bell to bell instruction!
Mister Schwartz: Forgive me, Mr. Principal. I suffer from tinnitus. I hear bells all day long.
Principal: Mister Schwartz, I came in today to discuss rubrics with you. What are your feelings on how we can use rubrics to help clarify our goals?
Mister Schwartz: Well, I have a Rubrics Cube up in my attic, but I haven't used it in years. I'm pretty sure I have a pet rock up there too, but I can't be sure. I'll check and get back to you.
Principal: We're going to be utilizing rubrics in conjunction with portfolios.
Mister Schwartz: Well, I've got quite a bit in Fidelity, but I also like Vanguard. I think mutual funds are the way to go unless you're a really large investor. I hope you found this helpful, Mr. Principal, and I'm delighted to have the opportunity to discuss these things with you. Please come around anytime.
