“Homeschoolers can use rote memorization to have their children memorize passages from Scripture, Psalms, poems, even parts in Shakespeare plays. When a child memorizes beautiful language and well-constructed lines, that knowledge will stay with him for the rest of his life. It will become part of his permanent memory that he can draw upon in times of difficulty.” ~Sam Blumenfeld
The TJED key “Inspire not require” has unfolded into many new avenues for me over the last year. Lead from the front and not push from the back has become more a part of my role as mentor. I love to “help people” along with gentle nudging from the back, but nothing inspires more than me participating often.
