September 2, 2014

Jed started a new homeschool group today - Classical Conversations.  I've been a bit concerned about the weekly 3 hour class and the time spent reviewing each day, but so far it's been great.  His tutor has a penchant for dressing up like a mad scientist during the science experiments.  :)

The students are expected to do a presentation each week and to have practiced it enough to be competent in their information and its delivery. This first week's presentation was a self-introduction, and Jed did remarkably well. I would have chalked that up to a certain level of comfort with the material, but the next week he researched and presented on the Indus River Valley Civilization and did just as well...perhaps we have a budding orator in the house. He certainly gets enough practice with that. :)
