Comments 1 Comment » – Few candidates make an effort to research the employer and the interviewer beforehand. This is a huge mistake. Employers gauge your interest in them and the job by know much you know about them. So impress them with your knowledge about their history, their goals, their challenges, their contributions and their opportunities. Tie it back to why what you learned about them reinforced your interest in working with them. Then just go get that job!

Finding the right homeschool curriculum package for your child can be daunting, especially if you are new to homeschooling. You may mistakenly believe that just because private and public schools use a formal curriculum, you should also do the same for your homeschooled child.

Families who are new to homeschooling often start by using a complete curriculum package. If you do this, you will quickly find out that the workload or structure can be overwhelming. To avoid burnout, you will have to experiment with different teaching methods and find out which method is best suited to your child’s learning style. Keep in mind that as a homeschooling parent, you have many curriculum to choose from.

Curriculum packages contain everything you need to start schooling at home. Your package can contain books, study sheets, teacher guides, tests and activities. Report cards may also be included. Some homeschool programs require completed work to be mailed to an assigned teacher who will correct and grade your child’s work. Accredited homeschool programs keep transcripts, and a diploma may be given when the program is completed.

There are many providers of homeschool curriculum packages, including A Beka Correspondence Program, Calvert School, Oak Meadow School, Sonlight Curriculum and Seton Home Study School. In general, they provide programs from kindergarten through grade 12. The curriculum package includes all materials needed for the school year. Prices range from $500 to about $2,000.

Homeschool packages offer many advantages. A full curriculum package is very helpful for parents who are new to homeschooling. There are also packaged curricula with a Christian perspective. This kind of package is ideal for families who want to include religion in their children’s education. A full curriculum package provides the structure, legal requirements as well as reporting requirements that you may be looking for in a homeschool program.

One major disadvantage with these packages is that they can be quite expensive. In addition, satisfaction levels vary. It is also possible that your child may resist the program’s teaching method or structure. Additionally, homeschooling requires a lot of time and new homeschooling parents may be overwhelmed by the amount of work involved.

In general, parents choose homeschool curriculum packages that use teaching methods similar to the way they were taught. They are often wary of homeschool programs that offer flexibility and imagination. Unfortunately, highly structured programs often result in burnouts. It is best to choose a program that makes learning fun while providing everything you will need to educate a student for the entire year.

In today’s fast-paced, understaffed and sometimes dangerous public school environments, it is a heavy burden for parents to decide where to send their child to be educated. Socialization has such a large impact on children, and the wrong environment can set them up for a life of problems: Not to mention worrying about whether your child will be given the attention and direction they crave. It is for this reason so many parents are deciding Homeschooling is the best option.

Every family provides a certain amount of homeschooling, teaching children many life lessons and educating in different areas. Choosing to homeschool your children full time is a wonderful experience for any parent, as well as an opportunity for your child to be steps ahead of others their age. This is because one on one teaching means more information can be learned in less time, where as in school, children are absorbed in classes of forty or more.

Not only are homeschool parents responsible for their child’s academic education, but they also have to ensure their child has plenty of opportunities to interact with others their age. Sports, having friends over and vice-versa, telephone conversations and social outings should all be regular parts of their weekly curriculum.

Some parents prefer to homeschool their children up to a certain age, feeling it better prepares them for mingling with other children and contributes to the development of a stronger identity earlier in life. For example, you may opt for homeschooling until your child is ten years old, then upon discussion with them, enroll them in school. By this time, you have had many talks with them about subjects such as peer pressure, bullying, choosing friends, respecting authority and getting the most out of their education. Of course, every child is different and many parents like to gauge from the child when they are ready to attend. Most children will reach a point where they start to ask why they don’t go to school like other children. For this reason it is also a great idea to socialize with other parents who homeschool so your children don’t feel like they are the only ones.

Ignoring all external factors, you need to seriously consider if you are the right type of parent to homeschool your child. You have to be very honest with yourself because it isn’t for everyone. Ultimately your main reason has to be that you will thoroughly enjoy interacting, teaching and learning from and with your child, growing closer and getting to know each other better. Other questions to ask include:

I. Are you a patient person?
II. Do you possess excellent communication skills?
III. Do you multi-task with ease?
IV. Are you naturally organized?
V. Can you give constructive criticism and correct mistakes with your child?
VI. Are you naturally creative?
VII. Can the family survive on one income?

If your answer is yes to all but one or two, and they are areas you’re aware you need to work on, you may still like to give home schooling a try on a trial basis: If you answer yes to all of them, homeschooling is definitely suitable for you. The next thing to look at is how does your child feel about being home-schooled? Some children are fully aware that in a short while they will be old enough to attend school, and they simply can not wait! Others are more sensitive, less sociable and less aware that is what children their age are doing. As best you can, have several discussions with your child to determine how they feel, and if they seem pleased to learn at home with mommy or daddy then you can begin.

Each state has its own level of control over children undergoing homeschooling. There can be either no regulations, low, moderate or high regulations: As the name suggests, each state exerts rules in relation to exam and test results, hours of study and evaluation, and high regulation states are extremely difficult to home school in. States with no regulations don’t even require you to notify education departments or government authorities that your children won’t be attending regular school, and low usually requires notification only with no monitoring of competencies for students.

In preparing for homeschooling your child, you will need to gather materials such as books, lesson guides and plans, movies and other activities. The best thing you can do is work out whether your child learns more easily through looking, listening or hands on processes and design your lessons around that. The best resources are the library and websites designed specifically for homeschooling parents, and second hand shopping at flea markets or charity stores will often lead you to some excellent text books at very low costs. There are also pre-packaged home schooling courses available for extra guidance. It is a wonderful idea to try and incorporate the local environment whenever you can: for example, when learning about water, spend a day visiting different types of water in the local area. Educational outings are a great way to ingrain knowledge through all the senses, so research ahead of time where you can possibly take your child for some real life examples that relate to what they are learning.

There are some common mistakes made by parents homeschooling their children, and being aware of them is all it takes to avoid them. Be sure to make your child reach beyond their current knowledge, as far too many parents don’t express any expectations and fail to motivate the child to do better. Be sensitive to the way they learn instead of teaching the way you find it easiest to learn, and don’t give the child control over the schedule. Make sure the class plan is clearly established, stating upfront how long you will spend on each subject and enforce rules in the “classroom” relating to being tidy, raising their hands with a question, break times and consequences for their actions, good or not so good.

When you are sure this is the avenue you want to take, you should subscribe to some good homeschooling websites or newsletters such as Homeschool Success News. There are programs to aid parents in teaching at home, chat rooms and other networking mediums for parents to compare and learn from each others ideas and experiences. Homeschooling is an opportunity for parent and child to bond deeply in a safe and controlled environment, and they are years you will treasure in your memory forever.

I am writing a report about homeschooling and unschooling for my aunt, who we live with. She is against homeschooling very much, which is a problem because we live with her and we homeschool.
She practices phonics at night with my sister and said that she wants me to do something acedemic in the time that they are doing phonics. So I chose to write reports with a point of veiw, and this one is about homeschooling.
It has to be from my opinion, but show all potential sides of the argument (for or against homeschooling). I want to write reasons why homeschooling is the better option, why unschooling is even better, why public school is not the best choice, etc, etc, etc.
I am not asking for you to write the report. I want to know: What are some points you think I should make? What are some subjects I should bring up? Any statistics I should put in that help me make my point?
Serious, helpful answers only, please! Thanks for answering!!!

I am sorry for any misspellings!
I didn’t ask for opinions, topgalant. I asked for help expessing my opinion on the paper that I’m writing that is supposed to express MY OPINION.
Oh, and PLEASE don’t start with the socilization thing, topgalant.
