A glimpse of my process in reading a book.
All in all, the first term of our year have been packed with interesting learnings and a lot of milestones. Fruitful 12 weeks :)
Below are exam questions for my year 3 student. All are based on our main CM curriculum, Ambleside Online.
Her wisdom, my thoughts
The Desire of Knowledge (Curiosity) was the chief instrument of education; that this desire might be paralysed or made powerless like an unused limb by encouraging other desires to intervene between a child and the knowledge proper for him; the desire for place, - emulation; for prizes, - avarice; for power, - ambition; for praise, - vanity, might each be a stumbling block to him.
It seemed to me that we teachers had unconsciously elaborated a system which should secure the discipline of the schools and the eagerness of the scholars, - by means of marks, prizes, and the like, - and yet eliminate the knowledge-hunger, itself the quite sufficient incentive to education.
