Here’s What I’m Trying To Do

Here’s a real life, in real time example of what yesterday’s post tried to illuminate. (I can’t make this stuff up) Helping our son with homework last night, he was asked to find out why the Earth rotates around the sun.

I read his completed work and asked if he copied it or wrote it himself. He copied it. Then I asked him if he could explain it. He couldn’t. Then I asked if he could re-write it in his own words. He struggled big time on re-researching. In the end, he agreed that the push to try harder not only allowed him use his own words, but to also understand them as well.
