Our homeschool group wants to have a choir/drama class this semester but they want it to count for 1/2 a credit for the high schoolers. We only meet nine times with three extra rehearsals/practices and the final performance is a short play that is to be memorized. There is singing, dancing, and acting in the play. They are also required to write a 3-5 page character study as well as an 8-10 page paper on the history of theater, etc. Is that enough to count it for 1/2 a credit? Some of the parents are balking at the paper but still want to count it for credit. If you wouldn't mind giving me your opinion, I would so appreciate it.

I think we should get our children more involved in outside activities like this https://www.underwaterbasketweaving.org/underwater-basket-weaving/ :-)
Okay. Your "invest in your weakness" has long been my #1 mantra. I think I'll take "sometimes easy is OK" as my #2.
From a mom who had her 7th grader read Aristotle's Poetics, I love love love this advice. I need to hear this. Often. Thank you for giving us the permission to lighten up once in a while!
