More and more of my friends are turning to home schooling because they are disappointed with their public schools. I know this is something that I will never do because I do not have the patience. I would love to think that I could teach my daughter on my own, but there’s just no way it would never work. I admire my friends for what they are doing, and I know they are doing everything they can to give their children the best education possible. This is in a lot of extra work for them however, and they need to have a lot of learning resources at their disposal.
One of the most common places to get learning resources is of course the library. The library has been and probably will continue to be one of your best sources for information. Though some of this information is now online, you can still go to your library to find learning resources you cannot find anywhere else. If there are others in your community who home school, you only need to find this information once. You should set up a group so that you may all share what you have. This will make putting together lessons much easier for the average family.
The learning resources you find online are plentiful. However you do have to be careful about what you trust. There are many sites that will not list any information that has not been thoroughly researched, but there are also many sites who don’t care. Some of the learning resources you may find online may not be entirely accurate. You don’t want to teach your children any information that is false. There are still many things that the public school system teaches incorrectly, and this problem may become worse as home schooling becomes more popular.
If you’re concerned about the legitimacy of your learning resources, it is in your best interest to verify everything you are teaching your children. This can take a lot of time, but in the end, you will be glad you did so. You don’t want to send them off to college having learned bad or incorrect information. Though verifying all of your learning resources might be a time-consuming endeavor, it should always be done if you are not sure. When using online learning resources, verify the information with a reputable source before you present it to your children.
