What is your homeschool teaching style?

I cam across this quiz on what your teaching style is when it comes to home schooling. I am mainly a Classical homeschool teacher. What are you?

I'm split between unschooling and curriculum-based. I've created my own curriculum for math, spelling, reading, and writing, but when it comes to the other subjects, we talk about things as they come up.

Re: What is your homeschool teaching style?

I came up all e's. I'm definitely eclectic. We do classic textbook/workbook based for some things and lit based for others and have even done a bit of unschooling for science. I use a curriculum, but I'm very relaxed about it. I let my kids learn more about things they are interested in and don't push things they aren't as much. We do have a plan. I do have a routine, but we frequently deviate from it. What we do is often at the whim of what I feel like doing. I mix it up.

Thanks OP. I enjoyed the quiz.

Mostly D. Curriculum based. I knew that going into it. The structure was what I loved as a student .

Eclectic, which I figured.

unschooling! :O

I used to be super curriculum based, but its so stressful. So now we use a light curriculum and lots of guided learning and I am LOVING it.

But my high school students use a rigorous online high school program.
