What are the lessons like? Is Skill Trek independent?
The main lessons of Skill Trek are found in the printable pdfs; however, most of our lessons also have an accompanying video that helps to flesh out and expand a lesson.
We're busy parents ourselves, and we want to make the most of our time, so we wrote Skill Trek so that it will work with a family's dynamics; however, every family is unique, and it's not an independent curriculum.
If your Trekker can't read proficiently, you'll need to read the lessons to them, but we've made the lessons so that they should only take about 5 minutes to read. The bulk of the lesson is in the application.
Speaking of the application, some of our skills involve water safety, working with power tools, automobile related skills, recreation + sports, cooking and working with hot elements, etc. If you're unable to oversee your child or teen's assignment, you may restrict their lessons to those that you feel comfortable with their doing independently.
