The skill of understanding ratios and similarity carries over from triangles to form another part of being an Adult in a democratic society. If mathematics is a logical language that we must all keep current in our memory, and sharp in our understanding, then learning that particular language is also a key part of Adulting, is it not?
And a bit of a change from yesterday’s lesson plan: we now have history readings again! Today’s grammar/history reading is on the Industrial Revolution.

(free copies at: https://archive.org/details/StayedOnF…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
