Sometimes I feel like I’m the only homeschool blogger whose daughter actually GOES to school. I was so happy to read about Eric this morning. Oh so happy. And oh so amused.
If my 20 year old son had not already taken the CPT, I’d have probably been a lot more like Cindy. As it was, I knew there was no way Michelle would have trouble with the CPT but I was worried about her actually taking a test since she didn’t really take tests when she was homeschooled.
I was also like Cindy because I encouraged Michelle to study the study guide. She looked it over. I just shook my head and thought to myself that she would learn a lesson about just looking over the study guide. She didn’t learn any lesson at all – because she’s behaving in a very similar fashion regarding the upcoming SATs. She’s looked over the practice tests. She’s looked over the study guides. Oops, that’s a blog for another day….
Anyway, back to Eric – and to Cindy – it’s an interesting post about an unschooled teenager dealing with the community college environment. The learning and the grading. Michelle has had some similar experiences in this first semester – though for her it’s been more of a bounce back and forth situation. She spent most of her life dealing with grades and then I spent three years telling her that grades didn’t matter, and now she’s back to dealing with grades and dealing with individual professors and their ideas about grades.
I can’t wait for Cindy’s next post about their dual enrollment experience.
