Home Field Advantage
A Guide to Choosing Teaching Methods for Your Homeschooling Champions
Countless families are making the bold choice to educate their children at home, moving away from that one-size-fits-all approach that is so commonly seen in institutional schools. Whether you’ve already begun your homeschooling adventure and you’re looking to fine-tune things, or you’ve just started considering it for your family, the key to successful homeschooling is knowing your options and knowing your students.
There is a whole world of different philosophies and methods for teaching out there. In Home Field Advantage, former public school teacher turned homeschooler Skyla King-Christison gives you a tour of the world of homeschooling, offering an overview of major educational philosophies, including the Montessori method, Waldorf education, Trivium, Charlotte Mason education, and unschooling. She also gives you a broad-based introduction to ideas like whole and part instruction, multiple intelligences, learning styles, and child temperament. Finally, she helps you understand how to put it all together in a tailored home education plan. Rather than tell you what your children need, Skyla helps you assess your children’s individual needs for yourself, showing you the variety of options you have to challenge your students throughout their homeschooling years.
Home Field Advantage features insights from Skyla’s training as a professional educator, her own everyday homeschooling experiences and epiphanies with her three children, and her illuminating interviews with over 15 families that successfully homeschool.
