How We Homeschooled Start to Finish
Jody and I decided to homeschool our 5 children when we were faced with our firstborn having cerebral palsy. We didn’t want him to get labeled too soon, so we started at home. Jody has a Masters in Education and wanted a real scope-and-sequence. I was Liberal Arts…so I wanted to give the children freedom (we didn’t have ‘unschooling’ notions back then 🙂 The Robinson Curriculum turned out to be a fine fit for our perspective and goals. We both wanted the kids to LEARN HOW TO LEARN, so that’s what we engineered: Two hours of reading, two hours of math, and one hour of writing. All we were missing was a writing strategy, so we invented one [The Writing Course] These videos tell our story / thoughts on how we educated 5 children from birth tocollege.
