I've been helping Ellen study Social Studies and I've been learning more (with more interest) than I ever understood about the patterns of economics, politics, religion, art, literature, music, and philosophy. When I would try to impart this wisdom to Ellen during a review for a quiz, Ellen's eyes will roll back in her head silently saying " Dad, just get the minimum facts to stick in my head to get through this boring history stuff so I can get a good grade!".
How true --- I hated World History at her age. Yet now I'm fascinated with looking back at the history of human behavior. K.C. listened to me describe this and told me of a course he is taking on line.
I finished week One and get a Quiz on Tuesday. It is yet to be determined if my pattern of school history will repeat.
