Jamee Posted January 9, 2011 Share Posted January 9, 2011 I assigned a book to DS (11yo) at the beginning of Christmas break and told him it had to be done by the 3rd, when we resumed studies. He left it the whole first week, then we had to fight him on the second. Needless to say, he's still not done and has lost all privileges until it is finished: no video games, Legos, going out, etc. He will be quized on it at the end too, to be sure he actually read it. So how do you teach them to be accountable in their work without nagging? I suppose this would fall in with not only assigned reading, but writing assignments and projects too. (Neither of which we've really tackled yet, but I'm guessing we need to for the practice.) If they were in PS and he didn't do the reading, he'd more than likely get an F, since we don't do grades, that isn't really an option.:confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
