hi Brenda i am also just starting this workshop.
currently i am homeschooling my son who has a learning
disability in math and processing and in the past
have worked in special ed. I agree it can be
frustrating getting in the higher order skills. i
have gone to making everything as real life as
possible so he can see why the material is important.
i am looking forward to sharing thoughts with others
and learning some new ideas. have a great day. karen
