Both when you first start homeschooling and all the way through your adventure, you will likely think about the concept of homeschool methods a few times. Homeschooling offers the opportunity to approach learning and teaching differently than the traditional school system. There are lots of educational methodologies that we can choose from – even that we can mix and match from – to provide a very well rounded, thorough learning experience for our child.
In this 10 day series, we’re going to take the time to look at the most common homeschooling methods. We’ll dive into the roots of each, along with definitions, discovering what homeschooling with that method looks like on the every day, examining resources that are common for each method and other information I find that goes along with each. These are the homeschool methods we will cover:
- Traditional School-At-Home
- Classical Education
- Charlotte Mason
- Unit Studies
- Relaxed / Minimalist
To wrap up the series, we will talk about figuring out which of these homeschool methods works best for you and your family.
