In my last post I suggested that content presented first is more easily grasped and retained than equally difficult content presented later in the same sequence.
But, there is an exception. When content is more meaningful, or interesting to the learner, it will be more easily learned and remembered regardless of when it is presented in a sequence.
Most home school tips of the week presented on this blog should be considered generalizations in which exceptions must be recognized and acknowledged. As home schoolers, we need to resist being rigid in our schedule and the way we deliver our content.
