Peer Teaching: Turning Teens from Passivity to Passion

Teens are taking turns leading classes – Be encouraged by the endeavor of grappling with 2 Timothy Chapter 3 this week—memory verse due next time is 2 Timothy 4:1 “In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead and in view of His appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge.”

Scripture Memory tip from Mr. Hackbarth—memorize the verse…backwards (last line, then back up a line and add…until you have it.)

Below we link the video teaching- view at home and discuss. Have a great week!

If your child or children were prevented from getting into college because they didn’t have the right credentials due to the fact that they were homeschooled…what then?…what now?

 Karen Braun poses the question: If your child or children were prevented from getting into college because they didn’t have the right credentials due to the fact that they were homeschooled would you still homeschool them through high school or would change what you are doing to meet those new requirements.
It seemed so unthinkable at the time that we would ever reach that point. But I believed that would be the way they would control our freedom to educate. Nine years later, we are facing that reality.”

Read the article below by Karen who spells out the tactic of those who quite simply want the kids. All of them, and how the manifestation of these realities is coming to a head right now.

(The article above was included in a recent discussion featuring many perspectives on the right of parents to choose educational options for their children. From the issue of a homeschooling parent going from reporting intent locally to reporting it to the state, to compliance with state laws or being willing to fight them in court to the frustration of seeing our own state of Michigan run by a statist Governor (Snyder) who want total control over parents. He said,“I want to emphasize a vision of P-20. A PRENATAL to life long learning. We have to get beyond the old models of saying there are silos for for K12, silos for community college, for higher ed, for preschool. They shouldn’t be separate. They can be separate institutions. not to threaten the institutions. But shouldn’t we make it a seamless system. Where a student in that system doesn’t have to figure out all these tough choices but can just focus on success…and understanding it starts even at the prenatal stage and looking at is the expectant mother getting the right diet, the right primary care…”) Are you in a place where you would like a conviction check?
