Encourage your child to consider the content of each class (what), and the purpose of learning it (why). Also encourage your child to start each assignment with a little warm up. Have him ask himself:
“What am I going to do?” For instance, “I’m going to compare these two things.”
“Why am I doing it?” “I want to determine which would be a better choice as far as price and quality.” “I want to see which chemical combination creates the desired reaction.”
Have him keep asking these questions as he completes an assignment. He’ll have a better understanding of the lesson.
