Finding the right curriculum
Choosing a Homeschool CurriculumIf you're new to homeschooling, finding the perfect learning plan for your child can be a challenge. Most public and private schools use a formal curriculum for each student, and you may mistakenly believe you must follow that same path at home.
Families often begin homeschooling using a complete curriculum package. Many, however, find the structure or workload overwhelming and begin to experiment with different teaching methods. The trick is to find a method that accommodates your child's learning style. As you become more experienced and gain confidence, you'll discover effective teaching tools that can help your family achieve educational freedom.
Traditional teaching methods are explored here, as well as a few non-traditional approaches that may surprise you. As a homeschooling parent, you have many curriculum choices. Your children benefit when you are aware of them all.
