Choosing Curriculum 


Home education offers the opportunity for craftsmanship in education.

Now is the time to think through your educational goals as you consider what curriculum/teaching materials would best meet your students' needs. Inquire of godly parents with experience in home-education. Find out what teaching materials they use, what they like and don't like about them and why. Read books and articles about home education to broaden your perspective.  Most important: pray and seek the Lord's direction.
