Arts-and-Entertainment How does a Christian homeschooling parent determine teaching method, lesson contents and pacing? Parents should be aware that public school and homeschooling should be approached in different means. Which is it — "homeschooling" or "school at home"? As parents begin their Christian homeschool, quite a few continue doing things in the way the child’s last school did them, since that is all the parents are .fortable with. Now that’s fine, if that’s what you want to do. But for your children to really be equipped for life, you should really take advantage of the benefits of what homeschooling will permit you to ac.plish. Part of the benefit of teaching your own Christian homeschool is that you get to set up your own educational standards and benchmarks and are then free to progress at a rate that best meets your children’s needs. The biggest problem most homeschoolers face is .ing up with a teaching schedule for their students. Some parents use various homeschool software programs, others write their notes in notebooks or on sticky notes plastered everywhere. While some people sit idly by doing nothing, there are others who try to prepare every activity out in advance. They just let the chips fall where they may. The wonderful part of homeschooling is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. Every family, all children and every mother/instructor has their own way of doing things, so you should follow the way that makes you feel .fortable. However, when it .es to putting together your Christian homeschooling curriculum, it be.es much easier, and less stressful, when you make a yearly plan of school objectives and goals. Depending on the goals you have set for you school year, it will be much easier to determine what homeschooling curriculum you will need to help you ac.plish those goals. Since no one knows your child better than you do, it is important that the goals you set be based on his/her capabilities. As your children get older, you can get them more involved in the goal-making process. Find out what your children would like to study, where they would like to visit, and what projects they would enjoy doing, etc. will help make your yearly curriculum selection process that much easier.
