This is really exciting, people. The Big Book of Homeschooling Ideas—a collaboration of over 50 authors with 103 chapters— is now available!
The book is divided into two sections which are then divided into sections with many articles in each: Ages and Stages (covers preschool—teen and beyond) and Learning Resources (covers a multitude of topics from history and geography to special needs to help for mom and so much more). You can look at the Table of Contents on the sale page but here are just a few of the chapters:
- Keeping Babies and Toddlers Occupied While Homeschooling
- Homeschooling Elementary Boys
- Making Tweens and Teens More Independent Learners
- Learning with Maps
- Teaching a Foreign Language
- Navigating from High School to College with a Dyslexic Child
- Inquiry Science
- Learning from Video Games
- Active Learning Ideas for Kinesthetic Learners
- Creating a Portfolio
- Teaching a Subject You Don't Love
- Homeschooling During Unemployment
- Homeschooling the Perfectionist Child
- and sooo many more!
I have had a copy of this book for a few weeks now and still haven't finished reading everything in it. The sheer magnitude of the wisdom, advice, and ideas included here is astonishing. It's like having a room full of veteran homeschoolers sharing what works for them available to you at any time!
Once you buy The Big Book of Homeschooling Ideas, you can download it right away as an ebook for your computer, iPad, tablet, laptop, smart phone, etc. (I have 2 articles in here: one about teaching creative writing and one is my series about "what college profs wish freshmen knew.")
Go! Click! Buy it! You won't be disappointed!
