Kyle's Homeschooling Portfolio
Kyle is an amazingly creative kid — BUT — that doesn't make it easy to show off his abilities. He builds astoundingly detailed models and cartoons incessantly. He has also planted a veritable forest of bonsai in his bedroom, and has been known to try and construct bombs of out flashlight batteries and dried tea-leaves. We have tried to capture a little bit of this below.
- The Depression Essay
Ok, this is closer to a prose poem than an essay, but it's a powerful piece of writing for a 13 year old. He was set to write this as an assignment one day when he was being particularly obstreperous about his school work. David had fully expected that he would refuse to do this exercise as well, but we were all surprised at the quality of the work Kyle produced. It must have been the right topic at the right time.
