I hope that Steemit continues to evolve to a forum for serious exchange of ideas around homeschooling and education. I’ve been seeing some great articles and enjoy the community that is sprouting.
A few highlights this week:
Unschool Your Children While Using Curriculum by @texasboys - A review of mobymax.com and some reflection on why unschooling can incorporate a "boxed" curriculum. Written by a parent with deep experience in schooling various levels of kids.
Considering home school? Why it was the right choice for us by @flusterfarm. Highlights the flexibility, one-on-one instruction, less screen time and applied learning that has made their schooling successful.
I have compiled a list of members that are writing about homeschooling. It’s a big umbrella- I mean this to include anyone who is schooling outside of an institutional setting, encompassing unschooling, roadschooling, co-op online education or some combination of methods.
Here’s the list - with distinguishing features highlighted, when they have been apparent. Please correct me and add to this! I will update this frequently. I encourage you to follow many (most! all!) of the people on this list so that we can cultivate great dialogue!
