We want to help you get the most out of your educational experience. That is why we have designed the following test assessment to help you learn more about your teaching method (as defined below). Once you know your teaching method this will help you choose the best curriculum for you and your child. The results from this short quiz will be offered immediately upon completion.
Charlotte Mason – The basic philosophy behind this teaching method allows students to learn from life. They will read from real books, study nature in the outdoors, study art and music, and prove their learning through narration -- telling back in their own words what they've read and learned.
Traditional – With this approach, students follow a plan mapped out by a curriculum supplier or correspondence school -- or by parents.
Classical – This is a highly disciplined approach to homeschooling that emphasizes serious reading, writing, rhetoric, classical literature, Latin and Greek, reason, debate, research, etc.
Unschooling – This method allows students to follow their own interests wherever they may lead. The method assumes that children are natural learners and will follow that inclination to a logical and fruitful end.
Unit Study – This approach of teaching is taking one topic (ex. American Indians) and tying in as many of your subjects into that topic as possible. You may study a particular unit for weeks at a time, fleshing out all of its possibilities and links.
