February 6, 2009, Newsletter Issue #266: Teaching New Subjects in Homeschool for Middle School

Tip of the Week

As your students gets older, the subjects they need to learn become more complex and advanced. Luckily, they are also at an age where they want a bit more independence, so one idea is to give them that independence by providing online resources and other materials to allow for some independent study.

Don't underestimate your ability to master new subjects either. Remember that as you've been teaching, you've also been learning, and that learning has laid a great foundation with which to chart new territory. Also, by the time your student has reached middle school level, you've already instilled a love fand motivation for learning that will keep them moving forward.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
