What do you know about Charlotte Mason’s method? Charlotte mason was an important educator at the turn of the twentieth century. Her approach focused on three areas, life, discipline, and atmosphere. The home’s atmosphere and living books are the focus involved here. The methods were strict and centered mostly on good study habits while incorporating subjects that were easy to understand without the dry facts. You can locate this curriculum at many home school bookstores.
There are plenty of reasons why parents are deciding to home school besides the once common religious reasons. One is perhaps social reasoning. Professionals who once criticized parents for home schooling their children are beginning to change their views, finally realizing what people in rural areas knew for years. That not all social interaction is positive. The physical schools are becoming increasingly violent, along with increased drug usage, and gang activity. Home schooling with satellite broadband internet allows schools to turn into interactive virtual classrooms where children are still able to interact with teachers, students, and parents. The home–school setting draws the child’s attention from negative social behaviors like alcohol, drugs, and risky sexual behavior. Chances of the child encountering violence in the home–school setting are nonexistent.
When you home school your child, competition is limited to your child being competitive with only themselves’. Your child’s confidence is not damaged. You know your child best and can therefore plan the curriculum to best awaken your child’s interest in any subject. You also can determine how each day is planned. If you have a tough science lesson, then you can follow that with a fun activity that incorporates language arts, such as reading an interesting story, or cooking to teach a math concept. Since you know your child best, you know what works best for them as a setting for learning. Some children learn more from reading, others from hands-on, visual activities.
Academic reasons are another area that home schooling has become popular in. Those living in rural areas who previously home schooled their children were required at one point to create lesson plans that followed state guidelines and standards. Thanks to fast satellite broadband internet, parents are finding interactive home–school programs that exceed state requirements. Some home–school programs feature live lessons for children where they can actually see and hear the teacher present lessons. The teacher gives visual step by step assistance and records it, allowing the child to gain repetitious learning. Previously, physical schools used repetition to teach all the time. Now they use so many methods, that from year to year the children have to relearn or unlearn a previous method. Also, once they teach a lesson, they move on to the next, not allowing the child to properly retain the taught information. The recorder live lesson method lets the children go back as many times as they need to until they get it.
Another reason home–schooling has increased in popularity are cultural. Many parents feel that their children are not learning enough about their own cultures and are in essence losing their cultural identities attending physical public schools. Although physical public schools implement various cultural histories into their lesson plans, there’s not much room or time in the curriculum to advance further into specific areas. The lessons are usually brief and incomplete. Home–school parents can use their fast satellite internet connection to research and expand on these cultural lessons. Parents come up with sub lessons that teach children more about their culture as well as other cultures, including languages, foods, tradition, and history. Most of which are not taught in the physical school setting. For rural area communities, home–schooling through the use of satellite broadband internet has expanded and allowed more in depth education that will give their children the ability to academically and professionally thrive in the new age world we live in.
Why shouldn’t you have your children stay at home and have them learn there? Do you, or for that matter, do they really like having to rise at the crack of dawn? And then they have to leave the coziness of home and venture out into a school where you have little or no contribution as to what they are learning. When you home school your children, you have the benefit of being able to regulate what they are learning. You can create the curriculum that best suits your child. Who knows your child better than you?
