Subject:         motivating teen boys plus teaching essay skills
Date: July 31, 2012 at 7:52 am PST

I have two teen boys who are totally unmotivated. We've tried numerous
curriculums and methods. Both are intelligent but way behind. It seems
to be an issue of rebelliousness. They are the last 2 boys of a large family
and I am a single disabled parent. Any suggestions or ideas for
motivating teen boys 13 & 17 would be appreciated.
I am also trying to help my 17 yo to write simple reports and essays as he
has now stated he'd like to go to college. He writes reports at about a 5th
grade level and is currently finishing 9th grade SOS. (And, no, he has not
always been homeschooled.) If I can help him make some progress
while he is thinking about college goals and requirements.... well, some
progress would be a blessing =) so any suggestions to accomplish that
would be helpful too.
Thanks much....
