To Know God and to Make Him Known
It Couldn't Just Happen
As I prepare to tutor Challenge A I am reading the science book "It Couldn't Just Happen". I've been reviewing the chapter on good and bad science with my children. In order to grapple with science on the dialectic level you have to possess a solid understanding of the grammar of the scientific method. Nowhere has this science grammar become so strikingly clear to me as when I have walked through the book "It Couldn't Just Happen". My kids and I were able to have a twenty minute conversation on good and bad science based purely on their understanding of the scientific method.
When you see the "marriage" of the grammar and dialectic in your children, it is such a fun and exciting moment! It reminds me of why we school classically and how the classical model enriches every subject we study from science to math to Latin. If you are in the throes of the grammar stage with your littles, hang in there!!! Persevere and continue to drill that grammar. All the amazing new grammar your children are gleaning will serve as the Foundation (pun intended) to a world of new discoveries on the Dialectic level.
