Assignments and Action Steps
Is there a Great Book that you just cannot seem to love? Is there one that you are tempted to dismiss or ridicule from the start? Try to read it again with the mind-set of a humble student. Listen and ask questions with the hope of learning instead of approaching it as a master who has the right to criticize. Keep a “pedagogical diary” and record how this impacts your reading and gleaning from the text. Then, share the results with your colleagues, academic team, or another homeschooling parent. Consider having your academic team do this together and then share the results and discuss at a team meeting. If you are a homeschool parent, consider sharing with your spouse or a homeschooling friend with similar philosophy of education.
