Since you are running your own school, you may choose your own curriculum. There is a vast list of curriculum providers. The first step is to determine which method of homeschooling you will be using.
There are many styles of homeschool that don’t require the traditional textbooks. Many of our local families use unit studies or put together their own units using library books. Again, the choice is yours. The Rainbow Resource Catalog (www.rainbowresource.com) is a wonderful resource for reviews.
An Eclectic Homeschooler is one whose approach and methods are tailored from various styles and curriculum, fulfilling the unique requirements of their homeschooled children.
Scope and Sequence is a curriculum plan, usually in the form of a chart, which presents a range of instructional objectives, organized into the successive levels at which they are taught. Each of the major curriculum providers has its own scope and sequence that you can request with a catalog. Most of these are available at no charge.
Every year, more and more families make the decision to homeschool their children for a variety of reasons, ranging from lack of access to quality public schools to a desire to take a more active role in their children’s education. If you are among these growing numbers, you may be considering online homeschooling. Many companies offer online homeschool programs to guide the learning process, streamline curricula, provide individual feedback and allow students to learn at their own pace. consumeraffairs.com
