We have two weeks until “Examination Week”. This is the exam, based upon the “Charlotte Mason” method, that I will be giving my 13 y.o. 8th grader. This will be her first time taking exams in this fashion. I am excited to see the results.
Half of your answers may be written and the other half may be typed. Be neat and avoid vague answers. Try to use new vocabulary that you came across in your readings this term as much as possible.
