Gina Prince-Bythewood, who wrote and directed The Secret Life of Bees, will direct Silver and Black, Sony’s Spider-Man offshoot that centers on characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat.
Silver Sable, created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz in 1985, is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals. The character has been both antagonist and ally to Spider-Man.
Black Cat, an acrobatic cat burglar whose real name is Felicia Hardy, has a long and tangled romantic history with Spider-Man in the comics. The character was cut from scripts for the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, and a “Felicia Hardy” (played by Felicity Jones) briefly appeared in Amazing Spider-Man 2, though no Black Cat connection was ever made explicit.
Note: This deal will make Prince-Bythewood the first black woman to direct a superhero movie, the second woman of colour (following Lexi Alexander) and the 4th woman overall to direct a live-action superhero feature film following Lexi Alexander, Patty Jenkins and Anna Boden (co-directing with Ryan Fleck).
They show extreme intelligence, even problem-solving intelligence. Especially the big one. We bred eight originally, but when she came in she took over the pride and killed all but two of the others. That one… when she looks at you, you can see she’s working things out. That’s why we have to feed them like this. She had them all attacking the fences when the feeders came.
As the one teacher I know of on here, I was wondering -- what's your opinion on standardized testing? As a student, I'm of the opinion that they aren't terribly useful -- how someone handles a subject throughout the term/semester/etc. is more indicative of how they understand it, whereas test results can vary depending on a myriad of issues (none of which prove the student doesn't know the material). What's your thought on the matter? Thanks for your time in answering.
I hate them.
Like, basically all of pedagogy is “remember, not everyone learns the same.” And ways to differentiate instruction for different levels. So we know that not everyone learns the same or demonstrates learning the same.
We also know that the number one predictor for how a school performs on standardized testing is the wealth and SES status of the students.
They don’t measure learning, growth, or quality of education in any meaningful ways.
