Day 8 / 105 - Challenge B
Last Thursday, my son began his Challenge B journey. After one week I can firmly state, we are off to a good start.
Challenge B is the year that is supposed to bring about great discipline. Students naturally mature at this age, and the Challenge program is geared to walk alongside them as they grow and individually own their work. It's only been a week, but I am witnessing some of this occur. Ask me in May, and I'll let you know if it became a pattern of behavior for him. :)
However, one area that is new to us is that I am no longer my son's Tutor during his Classical Conversations day. In fact, not only am I not his Tutor, I'm not even on campus with him when he attends his seminar. Due to class availability, my son is participating in his Challenge B class while I'm tutoring Essentials at a different location. It wasn't what we had originally planned, but it has worked out well, and it has increased his responsibility tremendously during an already formative year. We're anticipating great things!
