There are many curriculum choices available to homeschool families. Begin with the basics (math, spelling, reading) and build from there. Here are some options to investigate further:
*Traditional - textbook or workbook approach. Examples would be A Beka, Bob Jones, Calvert.
*Unity Study - topical or thematic approach. Examples are Sonlight, Charlotte Mason, Greenleaf Press.
*Classical - a program of study emphasizing the liberal arts and sciences. Examples are My Father's World, Veritas press, Well-Trained Mind, Classical Conversations.
*Technological - computer or internet-based study. Examples are Switched on Schoolhouse or A Beka DVD.
Many families use a combination of styles in thier homeschools - following a textbook approach for math and spelling, then using a unit study or classical curriculum for history, Bible, science and literature. Our HEART forums are also a valuable resource for curriculum questions and support.
