Meet the D Squad, a foursome of fifth graders at the Grand Canyon School made up of a geek, a class clown, a teacher's pet, and a slacker. And I didn't get kicked out of my old school because I refused to get a haircut. He always wore a button-down shirt and sometimes he would even wear a tie to school. Some of the other kids would make fun of him behind his back. Then he gets that look in his eyes and he says they take sand and make it into glass. He doesn't know or care about the stuff that normal people care about. Well, probably Judy didn't, 'cause she's a genius too. We've got a lot of great teachers, nice parents, and good kids here. Sam Dawkins, grade 5Somebody told me that the human brain isn't fully formed until we're about twenty years old. And that's why we're not allowed to vote and drink and stuff. Miss Rasmussen, fifth-grade teacher Some teachers like to have the desks arranged in perfect columns and rows. Judy seemed very studious from the start, and I could tell that it was very important for her to be a high achiever. I don't ordinarily strike up friendships with my classmates. Brenton's mom He was always different, from the moment he was born. He had no interest in watching television or playing with other children. He taught himself how to play the piano as soon as he was big enough to climb up on the bench. Kelsey Donnelly, grade 5The good thing about sitting at Brenton's table was that you could copy answers off him. It's typical of boys with low self-esteem, I understand.

He was assigned to Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix. Sam Dawkins, grade 5So I walk into Miss Rasmussen's class on the first day of school in September and I'm the new kid, so I'm a little nervous and I don't want everybody looking at me, but they're all looking at me anyway because, well, I'm the new kid and everybody wants to check out the new kid. Miss Rasmussen, fifth-grade teacher Our claim to fame at the Grand Canyon School is that we are the closest school to the Grand Canyon. If you've ever been to the canyon, our school is south of El Tovar and near Bright Angel. Judy Douglas, grade 5Oh, I didn't like Snik at all in the beginning.

My dad was in the air force and that's why we moved to Arizona. On the other hand, I was afraid Miss Rasmussen might not be experienced enough to handle some of the boys, who can be a problem sometimes.

Judy Douglas, grade 5Brenton would dress funny, with these stiff long pants no matter how hot it was. He was actually pretty good-looking, but he combed his hair in a really weird way. Once I suggested to him that he would look better if he combed his hair the other way. Like it hadn't even occurred to him that you could change your personal appearance to look better. He probably had so many more important things on his mind that he couldn't be bothered with something as trivial as combing his hair. Like one time he comes up to me and asks me if I know what they made glass out of. I say that's interesting, even though I really don't think it's all that interesting. If everybody was cool, everybody would be the same. By September, most of the tourists have gone back to work and school. But it's nice in a way, because we have the canyon to ourselves. Just like me, Sam was new to this area, and he had some initial problems adjusting to the curriculum and the other students. I'll get the same information whether I'm sitting on one side of the room or the other. When he was hungry, he would just look at me with this look that said, "If I could speak, I would be saying I need a bottle."He spoke very early. But then I decided that the best way to avoid other people would be to not start the club. And he had this very smart-alecky "I hate the world" attitude.

I scope out the scene and it's obvious who the cool kids are, who the dumb kids are, who the smart kids are, and who the dorks are. The class had the usual number of clueless dweebs, pre-jock idiots, losers, brownnosers, and bullies, just like my old school. You just knew the first time you set eyes on him that there was something different about this kid. I can't imagine a boy wearing a tie to school on his own. Sam Dawkins, grade 5Brenton just came out and said the weirdest stuff. We go all the way from kindergarten to twelfth grade, and I believe we have the only high school that is in a national park. Brenton Damagatchi, grade 5It makes no difference to me where I sit. "My concerto." I don't know where he got the word "concerto." I still don't know what it means. Brenton Damagatchi, grade 5I was thinking of starting a club for kids like me, who don't particularly enjoy the company of other people. We could hold meetings and talk about the best ways to avoid other people. He had really long hair, which I personally think looks terrible on a boy.

Probably has something to do with being so close to the canyon. lost a bet in Las Vegas, and his friends drove him up here. For their first homework assignment of the year, I asked everyone to write his or her feelings about it. Even though you may not have written work to do, you can always review or reread assignments.5.

A 2007 novel by Dan Gutman, The Homework Machine is about the social repercussions of the eponymous device, and a commentary on the inner workings of the American Education System.

The book's narrative is told in a series of testimonies provided by the 4 lead child characters, as well as their parents, the teachers, and the staff of the school they all attended.
