Interesting observation from music camp

Recommended Posts

I'm teaching theory/composition at music camp, and in my elementary groups, I've noticed something. When the kids are working in groups, inevitably, the groups that end up being able to make a plan and follow through without dissension and my having to intervene always have one thing in common. They have one of the handful of homeschooled kids in them. It doesn't seem to matter who the rest of the group is-and, in fact, by this point I think we've had almost every possible combination of kids. And it really does look like the homeschooled kids are the ones taking leadership and keeping the group under control. That's held even when the homeschooled kid is 7-8 and the rest of the group is older.


Very neat to watch.
