General Homeschooling Advice

Recent studies show that 1.5 million children in the United States receive an education through a homeschooling program. As homeschooling grows in popularity throughout the United States, the resources available to parents are also becoming ever-more abundant.

Although homeschool families come from a wide range of backgrounds, each family shares many of the same joys and challenges of homeschooling.

This section of the chapter is full of homeschool advice and resources from both parents and homeschooling experts on what to do when homeschooling throws up challenges and barriers to progress. Whether you feel that homeschooling is taking over your lives, you need to develop your homeschool community or you just want some general tips and tricks to help make the day-to-day smoother, you'll find everything you need in this collection.

The advice in this resource is great for parents of all backgrounds who use a homeschool program. Some articles, like those covering general homeschooling advice, have something for everyone. Other resources are geared more towards parents of older students, including a section on using college instructors in your homeschooling routine. Much of the advice in this section is geared towards helping parents overcome the different hurdles of homeschooling, providing support, encouragement and a place to turn when the journey becomes more difficult.

In addition to general homeschooling advice and information, Study.com offers a complete online homeschool curriculum. The curriculum has been designed by experts in the field of education to meet the needs of students in grades 3-12. Each subject is broken down into lessons and units. Within each lesson, students can read and watch an engaging, animated video on a given topic. At the end of each lesson, students will take a short quiz that assess their understanding of the content. Quizzes help to evaluate what information students mastered in the lesson and what areas might need additional work or review. Within homeschool courses there are also additional resources that help students to apply their newfound knowledge and apply higher order thinking skills. Many parents also appreciate the flexibility of the curriculum, which can be accessed online or through a mobile app. For more information, check out our homeschool plans.
