Chapter one will tell you the very basics of starting to homeschool. Here you’ll find out how to find and follow your state’s laws, what you need in order to homeschool (very little!), all about “deschooling” older kids who have been in school outside of the home, and suggestions for homeschooling the preschool years.
Chapter two will help you find your child’s learning style and get ideas on how to best teach to it. You’ll learn about hands-on, visual and auditory learners and the best ways to homeschool for each type, with lots of fun examples of ways each kind of learner tends to learn best. I’ll also give examples of curricula that are well suited for each type.
Chapter three is all about homeschool styles. Find out the basics about Waldorf, Montessori, project-based, school-at-home, TJed, Charlotte Mason, Reggio Emilia, classical homeschooling, public school at home, unschooling and more. I give suggestions for resources and curricula for each type of homeschool and help you decide if they’re styles you’d like to incorporate into your own homeschool. You can see which elements of each one appeal to you and design your family’s perfect homeschool.
Chapter four will help you find curricula and resources to match your family’s needs. I’ll help you find the right programs for your child and also list lots of great free curricula in every subject and for every homeschool style.
Chapter five covers the “nuts and bolts” of homeschooling. Learn about testing options, get information about that dreaded S word (socialization), and get troubleshooting ideas to make this homeschooling thing fun for all of you.
