In our continuing series on the “Guiding Principles” of home education, show host Greg Munger talks about developing a Homeschool Philosophy of Education, which is simply common sense dressed up in fancy clothes. Previous podcasts have explored Reasons to Homeschool, Getting Started, Different Approaches and Choosing Curriculum. On this program, which is part 2 of 2, Greg reviews how to choose content and methods for your homeschool, and then focuses on finding an approach that fits them as well as putting it all together in getting started.

Understanding that there is no single right way of homeschooling, it is really just a simple process of figuring out what you want to do in teaching your children and how you want to do it! There is great flexibility and diversity of both resources and methods available in teaching at home, so don’t be intimidated by it all. Start by asking yourself a series of questions and writing down the answers (don’t forget to include your spouse, and especially any older children who may be involved) that will help you organize and prioritize your homeschooling endeavor, committing it all to the Lord in prayer.

Here are a few of those beginning questions that Greg will cover in this program: CONTENT – What do I want to teach? What is most important? What subjects, skills, values, etc.? METHOD – How do I teach it? How should learning happen, especially to meet my children’s and family’s particular needs? How should I operate my school on a daily basis? How much money do I have to spend and how can I spend it wisely? APPROACH – What plan fits my desired content and method(s)? Is there one already made to save time and/or money? APPLICATION – How do I put all of this together for a successful homeschool experience?
