Below is a letter from Susie Hardeman, author of Stock Market Knowledge for All Ages. Susie’s book has found favor with many home schoolers looking to teach their children about finances; I know many of you picked up copies at the last home school convention.
Stock Market Knowledge for All Ages is now available for purchase online; below are some of Susie’s own words on the book and the experiences that led her to write it.
A couple of weeks ago we asked you what your favorite curriculum was. We got so many responses through our blog, our Facebook page, and Twitter, that we thought we would pose another question: Does your family use textbooks, videos, or both as part of your everyday home school curriculum?
In the last decade, the Internet, DVDs, CDs, and multimedia in general have made information more accessible than ever before. Many curriculum providers that previously specialized in textbooks now offer companion DVDs; some new companies publish almost nothing but CDs and DVDs. what do you use?
Home School Curriculum. There are as many preferences as there are choices. In my experience, nearly every home school family has a particular group of curricula they use for educating their children.
Growing up, the big names in home education were A Beka, Bob Jones, and Saxon. Some years, my brothers and I had a different curriculum for each subject! One thing’s for sure: Home schooling allows parents to mix and match the right books for their child’s needs.
I want to hear from you. What’s your favorite curriculum? Does your family use one curriculum for math, another for history, and still another for english? Tell us about it!
