How We Teach

How We Teach by iHomeschool Network

Perhaps you're an eclectic homeschooler who wants to see how unschooling works. Or maybe you're unschooling elementary ages, but wondering what the Charlotte Mason method looks like for middle school.

Each other (myself included) was asked to choose a method, subject, and age range

For instance:
  • I chose Charlotte Mason, fine arts, elementary. 
  • Then I wrote "Cultivating the Finer Things: Giving Your Child a Fine Arts Education."
  • I chose Charlotte Mason, language Arts, elementary.
  • With that, I wrote "Language Arts the Natural Way."
  • Then I chose eclectic, foreign Language, middle school. 
  • I wrote "Bring Foreign Language to Life."
  • Finally, I chose Charlotte Mason, history, high school.
  • This resulted in "Living Books Aren't Just for Little Kids."
See all chapter titles here.

As you can see, there are as many ways to homeschool as there are homeschool families. This book gives you a peek into those different styles. You may just find yourself inspired to try something new!
