But I think this is one of the most well written articles on the internet and I just HAD to share it. Did one ever know the reason why the pacing and story development change after Ash was hit by lightning in the beginning episodes? How Ash and his world were relatively normal until after the incident?
September 25, at Why 20 more minutes? I know that you have MORE kids, but you also have more time. That is a huge reason we homeschooled.
Well rounded, educated kids with little effort. Way to be a bit judgmental there. If you are not a classroom teacher, you have no idea how hard it is to teach everything that needs to be taught in 6 hours.
It is entirely different with your own children. My oldest is in college on a full mathematics scholarship. And he went to gasp public school!
So I know it is successful…. Now see how silly that sounds? The great thing about education today is that there are options for everyone! Both ways work if parents are involved.
And for what it is worth, I actually agree with the blogger. Most homework in elementary is just busywork.
Amanda October 6, at 3: Well — they have 30 kids and only one of them. Of course it is easier to teach one or two children the same amount of material in 2 hours. I think most teachers would love to have a 1: When you have a 1: April Cook November 20, at 2: The public education system was a complete nightmare for me.
I had undiagnosed ADD. The public education system in our country is very supportive of and practically tailored to left brained thinkers. There are several wonderful TED videos available on youtube that help perfectly illustrate and confirm that this can be verified historically.
She just very firmly believes in her decision to homeschool. And it CAN be done in just a few hours a day. Along with continual testing for timed reading or math test on a weekly basis. Kids are out of the class so much, band assemblies, social work, speech, OT, PT,pictures, buddy reading gym,music,art other pullouts for this and that.
I always say, a parent should sit in a classroom everyday for a week. Some do show improvement, others lack so much cause they are hardly ever in their class.
I have students tell me they are not not able to do this or that because they are not in the classroom very much.
I am an assistant in a classroom every day, the entire day. There is no way you can teach 30 kids science, reading, English, social studies, Spanish, physical education, music, art, along with lunch and recess within 2 hours.
Second, i agree that there is too much homework in elementary that is not truly meaningful practice. One is that repetition and revisiting the information is imperative to retention there is soooo much research on this. Second they actually get more one on one attention and instruction when parents help them work through their homework.
And third, they get to see their parents put value on education home and school must be linked. NOW, what I think should happen is that homework should be focused on reading, writing and math only, and that is should be limited to 10 questions each twice a week.
It should not be every night, and it should not be every subject, and it should never be just busy work, but practice with key concepts.
Those are my two cents as a teacher myself. Danna Lockerby October 10, at 5:The Editor's Blog is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by .
