Homeschool Buyers Co-op BBB Business Review

Free Writing Tips

The Co-op is pleased to present free writing tips from Julie Bogart, the creator of the popular Brave Writer writing curriculum.

Going back in history

Pick up a history book with your kids and flip through it or check the Internet. If you didn't live in the twenty-first century, what century would you choose? Seventeenth century France? Fifth century Greece? Fourteenth century Egypt? Why would you like to live at that time and in that time period? The food? The clothes? The way of life? It may be simpler than today or may be more difficult without some of the conveniences and technology we have.

Talk about what it would be like to live in a chosen time period. Remember all the negative aspects as well, such as poor medicine, wars, tyranny, transportation, and so on. Ask your kids: Do you think you'd prefer it to life in the twenty-first century? Explore your thoughts and theirs. You could assign a freewrite or simply talk about the topic.
