Dear Reader,

I am working on some longer posts but since I can’t seem to get them out in a timely fashion I thought I’d share with you one of my 10th grader’s written narrations. Feel free to size up your own kids in relation — I know I appreciate that sort of thing; it’s so hard as homeschoolers to know how we are doing. For a bit of perspective, he is narrating from a fairly un-living book and on a fairly short section. Oh, and he emailed it to me which makes it easy to share (I think because he was too lazy to go to a printer).

There are two branches of congress.  The first one we are looking at is the House of Representatives.
The House is the larger of the two branches and it is meant to be directly effected by the common people.  Until the seventeenth amendment it was the only part of the government directly elected by the people.  With two year terms the Representatives cycle in and out very quickly.  It is common to have many terms, few of which are consecutive.  This gives the Representatives time to pay attention their state.
With 435 people in the house it would be rather confusing if no one actually lead it.  Because of that the founding fathers made the Speaker of the House.  The Speaker of the House is elected by the majority party in the house.  Like everything else in the house, majority controls everything.  We will get into the job of the speaker next time.

Brief, I know. He is capable of longer ones. His oral narrations are super long.



One response to this post.

  1. My older ones have been known to email me narrations as well. Now we use Dropbox. They type them up and save them in a specific folder. Then I can access it and read it later. Works out beautifully. I do have one daughter who has chosen to hand write her science narrations.
