This is my assignment to interview homeschoolers.
plz answer these questions, if you can.
What are their challenges?
What special efforts have they come up with?
Do they believe they are successful, and why or why not?
What types of materials are being used?
What types of supplied programs do publishers offer?
thanks a lot.
In the case of Early Childhood Education, a homeschoolers challenges would be the same as any beginning student,..learning to read, write, etc. I have both homeschooled and sent my child to public school and the challenges are the same when it comes to learning. I feel that it is harder to pinpoint where my DS struggles when someone else is teaching him.
Not sure what you mean by the 2nd question??
As far as feeling successful,...well, of course, he does. We as a family encourage him in everything he does. There is more competition in public school so I would say he feels much more successful in a homeschool enviroment.
I use a full curriculum and cover all the subjects that he would learn in public school, but much more reading and critical thinking skills are used at home. The curriculum I am using at home is by far a better choice. There is no comparison.
Supplied programs publishers offer,..I would encourage you to do a search yourself on homeschool curriculums. I use Oak Meadow, A Beka, Rosetta Stone, etc,.. Not sure if that is the answer you're looking for.
