As some of you know, I joined the group this week and will be hs'ing my dd in K this fall. So, I'm absorbing everything I can from the group and HS blogs. I've come across a few things that I don't really understand.
1. What is the purpose of copywork and should I be adding it to our lesson plans?
2. What are/is lapbooks and notebooking?
I know I have tons of time before I have to worry about this next ?, but I'm curious...
3. How do you teach a subject you aren't good at yourself for 9th-12th grades? Ex: I am HORRIBLE at Alegbra. I just don't get it let alone be able to teach it! What about the harder stuff in Chemistry? History and American Government just bored me so bad I often fell asleep in class, but I figure I can get over that. Grammar and sentence structure, I'm hoping there are some kind of teachers manuals that will refresh my memory.
