I have seen remarkable improvement with my son over last year and we both love the curriculum, but I find that my DS is happy with C work. He doesn't challenge himself or take pride in his work even in subjects he loves or does well with. He is a great artist and the stuff he draws for fun is remarkably detailed and ornate. His art in class be it drawing counters in math or drawing a picture in his science journal is scribbled and non cohesive. His writing, in greeting cards and home books he makes, while often not spelled correctly, shows proper capitalization and legibility but his school work does not. I haven't got a clue as to another way to explain to him why it's important. It's frustrating because it's like I can see him calculate just how much he needs to do to get by and it's like pulling teeth to make him take it even a step further. Any ideas would be great.
