For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

As I mentioned before, our style of homeschooling is a bit of Charlotte Masson, classical and unschooling. One aspect of the classical education I have been trying to incorporate in ur homeschool is narration. With our BJU Readers 1 I had Zachary do the accompanying worktext for comprehension. He was doing well with that, but I realized that the questions did not test his actual grasping of the story on his own. So for the Readers 2 I have decided not to use the worktext and just do narration. This has allowed me to know exactly how much of the story he is able to understand and grasp on his own, along with all the other benefits of narration.

Here are some helpful articles on narration:

Trivium Pursuit (sccroll down to point2)

The Well Trained Mind on narration

Simply Charlotte Mason on narration

Homeschooling Highlights

An article on Narration: the Art of storytelling

A post @ Heart of the matter on Narration

Here is a nice take on narration: Narration with legos

For other innovative narration methods, read this great post @ Under the Golden Apple Tree on Narration.

Have a great day, Joelle
