Organizing a Book Club
Book clubs all of a sudden have become hot stuff--which makes perfect sense, since the joys of reading a great (or even not-so-great) book is the opportunity to hash it over with interested friends afterwards. Book clubs vary widely in character and activity, depending on the goals, ages, and reading choices of the participants. If the range of available choices doesn't suit you (mother/daughter clubs, for example, don't do much for our three-boy household), the obvious solution is to start one of your own.
Math Essentials
This math program provides a math instruction system that gives students the best math preparation possible. There are workbooks and free online video lessons.
Advantages of Homeschooling a Child with Autism
Laurel Joss
Many parents of children with autism have considered homeschooling at one time or another. Educating a child with autism can be a challenge, and many schools are not up to the task. Even schools with highly qualified teachers and excellent programming cannot give a child the one-on-one personal attention that a devoted parent can offer. Sadly, most schools are adequate, at best, and many parents wonder how their child will do from year to year. There are several advantages to homeschooling a child with autism. The biggest advantage is that a parent can tailor the curriculum to fit their child’s learning style, personality, and interests. In a school situation, the students are required to adapt to the teaching style and materials that are offered. Parents who homeschool can adapt the material to suit their child’s needs instead.
The Door is Open
Earl Gary Stevens
As children grow into their teens, some families worry that continuing with home education might be closing the door to college. They wonder if independent learning is more suitable for little kids than for teenagers and perhaps not very practical as a prelude to college admission. While college may not be the best choice for every person, none of us wants to eliminate the option for our children. There exists a myth that the only way for a young person to be accepted into college is through building a record for compliant behavior in a secondary educational institution.
Letters About Literature
The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, in partnership with Target Stores and in cooperation with affiliate state centers for the book, invites readers in grades 4 through 12 to enter Letters About Literature, a national reading-writing contest. To enter, readers write a personal letter to an author, living or dead, from any genre-- fiction or nonfiction, contemporary or classic, explaining how that author's work changed the student's way of thinking about the world or themselves. There are three competition levels: Level I for children in grades 4 through 6; Level II for grades 7 and 8, and Level III, grades 9 - 12. Winners receive cash awards at the national and state levels.
