Notebooking was getting monotonous and boring for my tween daughter.
I had been fighting threatening negotiating with Liz to get her history narration//writing/accountability questions/thinking questions completed. Tapestry of Grace can be overwhelming without a little planning here and there. Picky Choosy. We sure can’t do it all.
I threw an outline together on PowerPoint and told her to fill it in with the information.
She loved it. No more battle. Why didn’t I think of it before? When I taught public school, I often had my students use PowerPoint and Publisher for assessment. And Liz is now of the age those students were. Perfect.
We will do more technology narrating each week now.
And it’s good to show Dad that she accomplished something. Since all she wants to do is lay around and read and talk about it. He wants to see a product. Win/win/win.
