Designing Your Own Curriculum
Jane Smith
The first thing to do when designing a curriculum is find out what subjects your state requires. Ohio requires language, reading, spelling, and writing; geography, history of the US, history of Ohio; mathematics; science; health; physical education; fine arts, including music; and first aid, safety, and fire prevention, unless any subject, concept, or topic violates the religious beliefs of the parent. Next, it is a good idea to put your reasons for homeschooling in writing and formulate a set of goals for your homeschool.
What is Unschooling?
Luz Shosie
Unschooling is trusting the learner to be in charge of his or her own learning. It is not a method of instruction we use on our children, but a process we adults go through to unlearn the lessons and undo the effects of our years of schooling.
Education is Life
Our entire value system stems from our experiences. The influences of a classroom or a book are minor compared to the plethora of impressions that bombard us constantly. Every teacher knows that by the time a child can sit at a school desk, that child has already received a majority of his education. The child has already developed the attitudes, drives, tendencies and emotions that will shape almost everything else he will do the rest of his life. That education did not come from a book; it came from experiential interaction. All the teacher can do at this point is offer some direction and a suggestion here and there. In fact, teachers take a back seat to the true teachers of life: parents. When a human being is most receptive to influences, then those influences have their greatest impact. A child is an open book which has engraved onto it's impressionable pages the most basic messages - transmitted by the parent.
