WARNING: HOMESCHOOLING POST AHEAD

Filed on July 30, 2010 at 7:23 pm under by dcobranchi

I need some help. The girls (and I) want to learn ASL. None of us has any kind of experience with the language, so we’re going to at least try to learn it via some kind of program. Does anyone have any experience in this area? Suggestions? Warnings? Wild guffaws?

We’re leaning towards Naturally Signing.

Thanks.

OFF TARGET

Target recently donated $150k to reactionary GOPer Tom Emmer, who is running for MN governor. I am personally going to boycott Target until they repent by donating a like sum to the DFL.

BAH!

I haven’t posted anything homeschooling-related in about forever, but I couldn’t pass up this re-tread from the 1990s. A couple of quotes:

If you have time to commit, then homeschooling may be an alternative to traditional education venues. The time you spend homeschooling does not have to follow traditional models (8-5, five weekdays), but it does require at least the same amount of time.

The best homeschooling parents are former teachers

More secessionist talk from an (WARNING! REDUNDANCY ALERT!) ignorant Republican.
