I don't have time to answer all four. So, I will touch on two of them...
3. What do you think of Miss Caroline as a teacher?
As a parent, I am so frustrated with her! How dare she tell a student to stop reading with her father! She assumed that her at-home teachers (Cal included) were not able to teach her how to read and write properly. But, in her defense, that mindset was probably taught to her at the same university that trained her to become a teacher.
4. How do the children seem different than an average 1st grader?
An average 1st grader at that time or an average 1st grader today??
In either case, these kids seem so much more mature in some ways. They have seen and experienced a lot at their young ages. They know who they are and where they come from, and thus know where they are going.
