That is all very well and can be quite reassuring but most of us were not educated along these lines. We are indeed co-learners alongside our children. And because of that we often want—need—to know how we are doing at it.
It happens all the time. I hear the question in study groups, at conferences and in forums. I have asked it. “How do I know if my child is narrating well enough?”
There are various rubrics that others have constructed to evaluate narrations; I am offering this little tool from the PNEU as another option to consider. It is quite simple, but has served me well.
The rest of this is excerpted from my talk at CMER 2016, which was geared towards ‘Charlotte Mason and the Older Child’ but really, it applies across the ages.
