More about narration
Do you use narration in your homeschool? It’s an easy-to-implement but powerful assessment and educational method that you can use TODAY.
Remember, when you’re homeschooling, you are able to basically tutor your child one-to-one. It is the best educational method ever! It’s more efficient than teaching a class of 25 kids. Plus, you are able to assess your student in natural ways, such as with narration, rather than merely resorting to standardized tests.
Some kids aren’t good test takers. But that shouldn’t hold them back in their education!
You’ll be surprised how easy it is to implement narration in your homeschool. It will give you immediate feedback on how much your kids grasp of the topic at hand, plus you will be able to then tailor your instruction and help based on the results of the narration.
Narration also provides a springboard to later writing assignments. If your kids can orally narrate through a topic or summary, then they will have a much easier time of putting those thoughts to paper later on.
