Samuel Clemens really didn't like school. When he was 12, his parents finally allowed him to quit and he began work in a printing shop.
One day as he was leaving the office, a piece of paper from a book about Joan of Arc wrapped around his leg. He enjoyed it so much that he began reading every history book he could find.
This is called Living History. Regardless of their school setting, make learning REAL for your kids. Don't rely on paragraphs here and there in textbooks to get them interested in various subjects. Introduce your children to the real people, places and events of history!
