Jena, at Yarns of the Heart, has been playing around with a computer graded essays. I didn’t know a computer could do such a thing. Neither did Jena! I have loved the way Jena and her eldest son have played with this programme and discovered it’s shortfalls.
I rediscovered Terri Camp’s Ignite the Fire website this week. When I first found this websiteI read every page. It is still an inspiring read.
Cindy Rushton’s websites have had a make over. They are well organized with heaps of information. I am sure you will find something to encourage you where you are at today – an article, or a free podcast, or a webinar. Check out her blog
Susan passed on a link to her Teaching Reading, this week. As always, I appreciated her experience and wisdom
It has been a long while since we have lapbooked anything but this week we finished our Story about Ping lapbook. My eyes picked up Jimmie’s article about Lapbooking controlling our Curriculum, it sure is a trap.
This week I joined in an online Bible Study on Prov 31 over at The Homeschool Lounge.
Hi and thanks for linking to me. The whole essay scoring thing is pretty crazy. I appreciate you spreading the word about it. Thankfully, my daughter has decided that homeschooling really is the best educational choice, so we as a family won't have to worry about those electronic teachers anymore!
