    by Beverly S. Krueger

  • Games in the “Classroom”
    by Tammy M. Cardwell
    It’s easy to invest all of your time, efforts, and finances in “real curriculum,” but often the best “curriculum” is one that doesn’t appear to be educational – a toy or a game that either teaches or reinforces learning on the sly.

  • Stocking a Low Cost Library
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Shelf space and cost are both barriers to collecting a decent homeschool library. Most eclectic homeschoolers like to use real books, and while the library is certainly a inexpensive option, owning the books that are key elements of curriculum is the ideal we all hope to reach. Assembling a low cost library is possible as Beverly explains.
  • The Cost of Homeschooling
    by Beverly S. Krueger
    Many people interested in homeschooling are naturally concerned about how much it will cost. That's a hard question to answer because the answer depends on so many variables. We'll look at some of your options.
  • Theft by Any Other Name
    by Tammy M. Cardwell
    There is a scenario that plays out in homeschooling households all over. It begins with a homeschooling parent on a tight budget. Mom (or Dad) decides she must have a certain curriculum for her children, but it is costly. So, she develops a plan. She will purchase the curriculum, either photocopy the consumable pages or have her children do their work on notebook pages so that the book is preserved, and then she will resell the curriculum so that she can recoup some of her cost. Is this frugality or is it theft?

Out and About - Curriculum Helps Articles on the Web

  • Curriculum Dependent No More
    by Cyndy Shearer Added: 8/15/2004
    It is probably happening in your own support group. Home schooling mothers sit nervously in living rooms, around picnic tables, in church gymnasiums. Then one of them rises, clears her throat and says, "Hello, my name is Mildred. And I am a recovering curriculum dependent."
  • On Grade Levels and Curriculum
    by Lee Added: 8/15/2004
    Whether you totally embrace unschooling or just learn to relax more, I think you'll find that when you "Let go and let G-d" be in charge of what, and how, and how much, and how fast your children learn rather than on what the 'experts' in our culture tell us they need, your children will be happier, and will learn more -- not just for some stupid test then forget the information as time goes on, but truly learn and be interested in retaining and building on that information.
  • Choosing a Web-based Curriculum
