Last month we decided to share a few blogs, articles and news that had captured our attention or sparked our imagination recently. We heard from a number of readers that they enjoyed seeing some of the things that our faculty and teachers were enjoying, so we have decided to make this a regular monthly feature on our blog.
This month, we have articles on the philosophy of spaces, the economics of Jane Austen, the misuse of the English language, the importance of learning cursive, how "goofing off" helps kids to learn, and more!
Thank you to our ILS parents who brought some of these great articles to our attention! Have you read and interesting article or blog post recently? We love it when you share things you've found of interest. Please feel free to leave a link in the comments section below!
