tuzor Posted September 1, 2012 Share Posted September 1, 2012 First off I was typing and lost the entire conversation so this is an attempt to recapture what I wanted to say. For those of you that have read the book I am wondering how do you self teach so that you can be the teacher described in the book. I am fearful and excited reading this book. My oldest is in the second grade and I admit that there have been times where my attitude was that of oh he is so young. I don't really need to prepare in advance for this or that. There are some things that don't require deeper study for me at his level however there several subjects that require me to really dig deep so that I can find the analogies and connections to his world in order to really transfer knowlege. My question is how are you self teaching? Are you reading a chapter at a time prior to presenting information or are you spending intense time with the content during your down time/summer breaks to really absorb the informaiton for yourself so that you are prepared to transfer. This little book is really opening my eyes. I don't want to disservice my children by lack of passion or knowlege. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
