High School Scares Me.
There I said it. Our older two boys both graduated high school by attending charter schools or the local community college. That was easier for me. They went to school and then I was available to coach them through syllabus organization and scheduling, editing papers, and life skill teaching.
This year, I feel like I am on my own.
(I’m really not, but it feels like it) We have our third son entering high school (and very quickly after are his two younger brothers). Within a few years, we will have three kids in high school! Yes. Pray for me. So I am spending the summer praying, studying and planning.
One of the things I know I will need to teach this year is MLA formatting.
MLA formatting is a scripted way to set up a writing assignment so that all the students’ papers look the same. This makes life easier for the student, teacher, and anyone else who has to read stacks of papers. The challenge is that I have never taught MLA formatting. So how do I prepare?
- Ask my latest graduate a few questions.
- Write an essay assignment and complete it myself.
- Create a study packet with a power point.
