When do they ask the question (if it even counts as a question)? I've typically heard it during grueling math or science lessons.
Have you heard your child ask the question about writing?
I can't speak for the usefulness of higher level math or science for the non-math and science majors, although the information and skills have helped me in homeschooling, a calling I never anticipated as a young mom, let alone a young student. What about writing? Will your kids need it? Should it be a priority in your homeschooling program?
I say a resounding yes, but what does that matter, especially to your children?
Sometimes ideas come at the strangest times and places. Last night, as I was hanging laundry under the night sky, this one came. I want to compile a list of dads, moms, and their professions and how/when they've needed to write as an adult.
I'm wondering if we can make a convincing case that writing is an important skill, worthy of our students' time, thought, and energy.
Leave your comments here. I'll share the results in a future post.
