Quote of the Day Back to Top
Education is a private matter between the person and the world of knowledge and experience, and has little to do with school or college.

What does the SAT measure? Aptitude? Achievement? Anything?
When the first SAT was created, it was named the Scholastic Aptitude Test, signaling that its creators and the education world believed it to be a test of aptitude, or, a student’s ability to perform well in college. Aptitude tests supposedly measure talents that indicate possible achievement in the future, while achievement tests supposedly reveal how much someone has learned in the past. All these years later, we know the test never really did measure anybody’s aptitude to do well in college.
The Case for Authentic Assessment
Grant Wiggins
Assessment is authentic when we directly examine student performance on worthy intellectual tasks. Traditional assessment, by contract, relies on indirect or proxy 'items'--efficient, simplistic substitutes from which we think valid inferences can be made about the student's performance at those valued challenges.
Designing Your Own Curriculum
Jane Smith
The first thing to do when designing a curriculum is find out what subjects your state requires. Ohio requires language, reading, spelling, and writing; geography, history of the US, history of Ohio; mathematics; science; health; physical education; fine arts, including music; and first aid, safety, and fire prevention, unless any subject, concept, or topic violates the religious beliefs of the parent. Next, it is a good idea to put your reasons for homeschooling in writing and formulate a set of goals for your homeschool.
Beit HaChatulim
This website is offered by a Jewish vegetarian homeschooling family. You'll enjoy reading about their experiences and how they combine their faith and homeschooling.
JumpStart Free Math Curriculum
Homeschooling parents will find that when it comes to choosing the curriculum for math, there is a huge variety available. In fact, the number of math curriculums available to choose from may make choosing the right one difficult. These supplemental math activities for grades K-5 are fun ways to incorporate more math into your homeschooling.
