How to Make Learning Meaningful, Memorable, and Fun
Homeschool How-To 102
"I don't remember the answer. Why do I have to know this, anyway?" Maybe you've heard this complaint at your house?
Studies show that we remember only 10- 20% of what we read in books or hear in lectures. So why do we continue to teach using primarily textbooks and lectures? And why are we then puzzled that our children understand and remember so little?
By contrast, children who learn through active participation retain 70%-90%!
In this course, you'll learn specific ways to create active learning adventures that will help your children become eager, lifelong learners.
