Grayson, Weekly Review: 9/6-9/10

Grayson is my junior and here is my very late week in review.

Language Arts
Grayson read selections from EMC’s World Lit. This week he read a selection from “Of Cannibals” by Michel de Montaigne.

He completed his homework in IEW, Mother Tongue, and reviewed comma rules in The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation.

On Wednesday he went to the math tutor. He is using a Sullivan Precalculus text. Yesterday (9/12) we bought him his own graphing calculator. He had been using Christian’s, but Christian took his to college. Imagine that.

Alright, things are better. He read RS4K Level2 Chemistry 1.1-1.2 and chapter 3 in his Prentice Hall text and there was no problem!

This week in Glencoe high school World History Grayson read about Africa.

He also watched lectures 11 and 12 from The Teaching Company’s A History of England from the Tudors to the Stuarts. This completes part 1 of the 4 part series and covered the break with the Catholic church and the power of the monarchy through the end of Henry VIII’s reign.

On Tuesday he attended his one semester economics class using ABeka and he made a B on his test. This is wonderful since we were running so late that not only didn’t he have time to shower but he also didn’t eat lunch. When Grayson is rushed like this, it is not uncommon for him not to do well.

Grayson watched lecture 7 from The Teaching Company’s The Art of the Northern Renaissance.

Grayson’s second game was this week. They played two 25 point games and one 15 point game and won all three. In the final game, the first 11 points were while Grayson was serving!
