Encourage Independent Learning – Guest Post

Summertime

  • Not every school district incorporates a year-round school program. In our case, we continue education in the summer through various projects that don’t feel like a scholastic program. As with the experiments above, we assign different tasks that require a specific level of comprehension for the various ages of our children. For instance, I had my oldest son write a review about a game and published it on my website. That meant it had to be well written and grammatically correct. A a result, he spent a great deal of time researching methods and developing better grammatical skills. Although a single article doesn’t constitute advanced knowledge, it is a skill that he can use throughout his life. Continuously giving opportunities for the child to interact with the real world can give them purpose and drive him or her to learn more about the task.
