Re: thinking of homeschooling.

Whenever people ask where to start when they're considering homeschooling, I suggest my two favorite books:

100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum, by Cathy Duffy. She has questionnaires to help you identify your kids' learning styles and your personal educational philosophy. Without that, the abundant curriculum choices are completely overwhelming. She also includes lots of really helpful introductory homeschooling info.

Homeschooling for Dummies. This is just a great, unbiased (rare in homeschool books, in my experience) overview of the whole thing.

Your library should have both of these. After you read them, I would recommend hanging out on forums like this one and the forums over at well-trained Forums are great for seeing all the different ways that people actually get this done every day.

Good luck!


Adrienne, wife and lover to Andrew Mama to Simon (2/21/06 - 2/26/06), Norah (6/28/07), Ezra (5/11/10), and Phoebe (6/14/12).
