La clasa

In fiecare Luni avem citeva clase pe care le facem impreuna cu alti copii care fac scoala acasa.

Aici este clasa in care invata cum sa construiasca un argument. Subiectul discutat: Trebuie ca guvernul sa forteze copiii sa invete o limba straina? Fetele impotriva baietilor 😉

A doua ora este de Perspectiva Biblica asupra lumii. Se discuta presupunerile care exista in lume si cum ne afecteaza viata. Valorile care le avem determina si influenteaza societatea in care traim.

Apoi vine ora de compozitie/scriere. Este planificata pentru exercitii de compozitie pentru testele standarizate ACT/SAT pe care le cer cele mai multe dintre universitati. Desi inca nu sintem hotariti daca va da testul respectiv, am zis ca niste lectii de compozitie de la alt profesor decit cele de acasa nu strica:

Clasa de biologie este de doua ore, una pentru lectie, cealalta pentru laborator. Pina acum au disectat pesti de mare, broaste, pesti, si au facut o bautura (root beer) din fungi.

Restul materiilor le facem acasa. 🙂

17 gânduri despre „La clasa

  1. And which argument has won the day in the foreign language debate ?
    Did the students have to first define …”foreign language”?? ‘Cause, you know, for many of the more than 40 million Spanish speaking „Americans”. English is the foreign language… and how dare the government force them to learn this foreign language?!…

    P.S. A good debate would be also on the topic of granting citizenship and the right to vote to people who cannot speak English.

  2. Today was the acquiring of evidences, pro and cons. Next Monday, the last of the class, will be the debate. Yes, it was stated that foreign language is anything else than English. We are not politically correct 😉

    That was the main point: Can government force something upon anybody? We now have a precedent with the health care, where people are forced to buy health insurance.

    There were a lot of other subjects, but the foreign language won the most votes.

    If there should be a test for the citizenship, I would propose that american born people take a test in history before they vote. Many aliens that take the citizenship test know more American history than americans themselves.

    Sad, but that’s thanks to the wonderful job our government is doing….

  3. I agree with testing Americans before they vote. That would be fun. I remember, while living in WI, even before I got my Green Card, lots of my co-workers came to me to learn about the candidates and the issues on the ballot. I had two newspapers with me everyday but all they wanted to read was Sports and Classified and they didn’t care about politics at all.

    I personally think it would better if only those who work or are retired (and their spouses) are allowed to vote. That would include also the military people. Another requirement would be similar to the „forty acres and a mule” law. Owning property makes people more responsible and eager to be involved in electing representatives who uphold the Constitution.

    As long as we have lazy bums who never worked a day in their life voting to „soak the rich,” (i.e. those those who worked hard to get where they are) it looks more like a „democracy,” where the majority decides (like, you know, four wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner…) instead of a representative republic.

    • We would like to make these kind of laws 🙂 but we forget that a man has the right to be stupid 🙂

      As you might know, 47% of people don’t pay federal taxes…so, of course, they vote based on the lies they hear, not as an informed citizen.

      Cit despre democratie vs republica reprezentativa, cred ca 99% din americani (sau romani) nu stiu care e diferenta.

  4. Thanks, Rodica. Un exemplu marunt ca daca se vrea ceva, se poate. Sa dea Dumnezeu sa nu ni se fure acest drept, si in Romania sa li se dea parintilor inapoi. Cel mai rau este ca parintii nu isi vor drepturile inapoi…

    Te rog un lucru: vezi ca la adresa de url, unde iti scrie adresa de blog, ti-ai scris numele invers si se duce la un blog la care nu mai postezi. Sa schimbi sa spuna rodicabotan.blogspot.com nu botanrodica.

    xoxo

  5. Mai ai familii acolo care fac homeschool? Daca faci parte dintr-un grup o sa-ti fie mai usor. Sint atitea activitati pe care le puteti face, ca nu o sa ai timp sa iti fie groaza 🙂

    • m-am inscris intr-un grup de suport dar din pacate la mine in orasel (si in oraselele apropiate) suntem singurii care facem scoala acasa. Totusi am gasit multe activitati interesante unde o sa socializeze cu alti copii.

  6. Cunosc citeva familii care au facut intreaga scoala acasa. Una din familii s-a gindit cind a ajuns fata mai mare la liceu sa o lasa sa mearga la public high school. Fata a venit acasa si a plins si n-a mai vrut sa mearga. Am crezut ca nu se poate integra cu copii. Au trecut citiva ani si acuma este la college…ce crezi…??? Merge exceptional ; cei din college sint mai maturi si s-a adaptat fara probleme. In plus faptul ca este obisnuita sa studieze fara sa fie impinsa din spate ii da un avantaj nemaipomenit – ca majoritatea copiilor care merg la facultate au o [problema majora cu faptul ca trebuie sa studieze mult in mod individual…

    Asa ca…succes tuturora.
