Guide Book for the Novice Homeschooler

You have made the decision to home school your child.
Next, questions begin to float through your mind, “Where do I begin? How do I develop a philosophy of education? How does my child learn best? What should my child learn and when? What curriculum should I use?”

Homeschooling mother, author and curriculum consultant, Cathy Duffy has taken the time to address these questions and many more in her book, “100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum: Choosing the Right Curriculum and Approach for Your Child’s Learning Style.”

Duffy’s book is basically a “guide book” for the novice homeschooler.
The book is divided into two parts. The first six chapters assist the novice in becoming “goal-oriented” rather than “curriculum driven.” The remaining eight chapters break down the components of education (Phonics, Reading, Literature, Mathematics, Language Arts, History, Geography and Cultural Studies, Science, Unit Studies and All-in-One Programs, Foreign Language, Electives, and Online Classes) into individual chapters. Within the chapters Duffy gives an introduction to the topic, followed by her “top picks” accompanied by reviews.

This resource is a clear, concise guide to assist the novice homeschooler entering the world of home education.
