What are the different methods of homeschooling?

The Unit Study Method

Unit Study involves taking a particular topic, such as Ancient Rome, and studying it for a month or longer. During a study of Rome, you can incorporate different academics (by using Roman games, coins, numerals, literature, history, and even Latin) to gain insight into the Roman world. You can also cook and eat Roman food, go to a museum to see Roman artwork, read history about Julius Caesar or even Cicero, and read the poetry of Virgil.

*You can also do unit studies from both the unschooling approach (by letting the child pick the topic) or using the parental approach (you pick the topic and write the curriculum).
