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? 🙂
