Learning Journal: Monday, Nov. 4

I decided to try blogging regularly about the kids’ learning again and see how it goes. Most of my homeschool blogger relationships have fallen by the wayside, and probably no one will read this but me. But I am hopeful that it will help me find some focus.

Homeschooling High School So Far — English & Humanities

Our Topic for the Year: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Dystopia — We’re still working on finding our groove with this, and I’m trying to find ways to get James more interested and engaged. Although we agreed to this mom-made curriculum, as preparation for college, he seems to be participating reluctantly. Maybe since he is such a visual-spatial, hands-on kind of learner, this is just too bookish for him.

BTW, James has ADHD, and like many people with this “disorder,” he is blessed with high energy, a quick mind, a strong “right brained,” visual-spatial learning style, and great problem-solving skills. But keeping him interested in anything for more than 20 minutes is challenging.

Suggestions? 🙂
