Visual materials forrepparttar home education are a must. If you donít have a big chalkboard, invest in an easel and a big flip chart type notepad. Always sitting next torepparttar 147589 child or children isnít alwaysrepparttar 147590 best way to illustrate instruction. For one, you hand will generally always be inrepparttar 147591 way sorepparttar 147592 student canít see your visualizations as you speak. When this happens your verbal instruction doesnít match whatrepparttar 147593 child is able to see. Kind of like watching one of those foreign films whererepparttar 147594 English is dubbed in! The conversation has already happened before you see their lips move!

History Does Repeat Itself

considerrepparttar following. During both invasions of Iraq, Presidents named Bush were in charge ofrepparttar 147479 military campaigns. The economic climate ofrepparttar 147480 United States was greatly altered both times. The economy went from good to bad. To look even deeper is even more frightening. Duringrepparttar 147481 invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11,repparttar 147482 United States' Armed Forces fought against weapons that had been given torepparttar 147483 Afghanistan government to combat Russia during its war with them inrepparttar 147484 1980's. That is whenrepparttar 147485 United States was on good terms with Afghanistan and was fightingrepparttar 147486 evil empire of Communism. Secondly, Osama Bin-Laden had been recruited and trained byrepparttar 147487 United States' government to helprepparttar 147488 Afghanistan people fightrepparttar 147489 Soviet Union. Ultimately, he wasrepparttar 147490 one responsible forrepparttar 147491 attacks onrepparttar 147492 United States on 9/11. One last tidbit to ponder. Duringrepparttar 147493 1980's,repparttar 147494 United States' government supportedrepparttar 147495 country of Iraq in its war against Iran. Then twenty years later, Iraq wasrepparttar 147496 enemy. Not only does history repeat itself, but in this particular example it is almost scary. And in many instances of this recent historyrepparttar 147497 irony surely cannot be dismissed or ignored. ****************************************************** Written by Jason Liptow, B.A. in Social Studies from Madonna University, teacher certification from Saginaw Valley State University in Social Studies and History isrepparttar 147498 webmaster of Social Studies Made Simple.
