Approaches to Christian Homeschooling
Every new (and not-so-new) Christian homeschooler can benefit from a long encouraging conversation with a veteran. Just curl up with this book and you’ll soon feel like you’ve been talking to a good friend. Starting with the basics of why to homeschool and, particularly, why to embrace Christian homeschooling, Kerry Beck embarks on a thorough discussion of the various approaches/educational methods that are available. With a constant eye to enjoying the time you have with your students and the overarching goal of bringing them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, she looks at the basics of each approach as well as their respective strengths and weaknesses. Before long, she also provides lots of practical ideas for successful implementation of a given approach along with suggestions for additional information and resources. Each section ends with a simple assignment designed to apply this approach to the goals and needs of your family. Her concluding “Three R’s for Homeschool Moms” is a gem of encouragement – Rest, Relax, and Rejoice. 207 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
