This. This is why unschooling works so well for us. When we had IDVA assignments, I practically had to bribe Little Mister to write word lists. We went around and around with dragging heels, tears... Today, he is writing a word list by his own choice, looking up spellings himself, in order to create a word search on the computer and print it out. All of it 100% his idea. He is completely excited about it, and the words are more difficult to boot.
