Carlene Archer
Whether you are in your first year of homeschooling or your 18th, choosing your curriculum is a continual process. Your family situation, financial status, child's needs, or other factors may have changed. One approach doesn't work for every family. In this article, Carlene Archer shares some guidelines that can help make the process of choosing your curriculum easier.
Choosing Curriculum
Holly Craw

Common Sense Press
Homeschooling is a journey parents begin every year. Unfortunately, many families who wouldn't even think of traveling without a map begin this homeschooling journey on their own, asking for directions along the way.

1. What is education?
2. What are the roles of the teacher and the student?
3. What is the role of the curriculum?
