Quality Home Education:

In respect of Homeschooling in the UK, Study Coach is aware that homeschooling parents are concerned that a School Bill is making its way through Parliament, and the introduction of a new law could lead to unwelcome changes to homeschooling. We hope to give updates, but also want to reassure homeschooling parents that any new rulings can be challenged. Parents can introduce measures into their homeschooling programme to satisfy Local Authorities. Study Coach Homeschooling Teaching Skills pdf workbook offers parents valuable teaching skills.

Homeschool Mom

There are many reasons why parents choose to home school their children, bullying at school, inadequate schools, negative school environment, exam pressure creating stress for children, the school cannot meet children’s needs, safety fears, health fears, are some reasons why parents educate their children at home. When removing children from the school system in the UK, parents should heed a word of warning and that is to make sure the local authority has been informed. Parents in the USA should ensure that they are familiar with the home schooling laws in their respective state, laws governing homeschooling do differ. In some countries homeschooling is outlawed, and in some countries girls must stay at home. Study Coach stories and learning tasks is a great way to provide some education in cases where children must stay at home. 

Homeschool Curriculum:

The type of Home School curriculum applied will depend on the laws governing homeschooling. In some cases parents must enrol with a recommended external service, and in other cases parents can construct their own curriculum. Parents need to be informed and keep updated with the rules/laws governing homeschooling, sometimes parents are wrongly informed and are led to believe that they must follow a prescribed curriculum. Study Coach’s advice is to stay current and stay informed in respect of homeschooling rights and responsibilities. 

Homeschool Planning: 

Planning for the new academic teaching and learning year is important, a good plan will help parents to ensure that learners can make connections between previous and new learning. A good plan will enable learners to make connections between different subjects, and to understand the relationship between subjects, this will help make the teaching and learning experience successful for the child and parent.  

Homeschooling Lessons:

Homeschooling lessons are not limited to the home, parents can deliver lessons whilst shopping, having lunch in a restaurant, watching tennis, gardening, travelling (the list is virtually endless). Lessons will however need an aim and objective, so that parents can track and identify that learning is taking place. The pdf workbook does explain, lesson aims and objectives. 

Homeschool and Social Skills: 

There is an argument that Homeschooling hinders the development of social skills, since homeschooling learners won’t experience interacting with a class of children. The perception is that a class of 30 children attending mainstream school will all interact with each other; this is not the case. Children attending school have a tendency to limit their interaction with a small group of friends. Homeschooling children can also meet with a small group of other children who are homeschooling, this initiative being organised by respective parents.
