Best ways to be successful with homeschooling
you should think about the #1 thing you’re struggling with when it comes to homeschooling this year?
To be a successful homeschool parent you need patience, dedication, a sense of humor, and of course … kids. (Smile)
All kids learn with different learning styles…And different personalities…in past posts I talked about Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences. I’m a firm believer of this and used his theories when I was a teacher. These info graphics show a little of his theory.
All kids learn at different paces and via various methods.
“When you hear the word intelligence, the concept of IQ testing may immediately come to mind. Intelligence is often defined as our intellectual potential; something we are born with, something that can be measured, and a capacity that is difficult to change.”
In recent years, however, other views of intelligence have emerged. One such conception is the theory of multiple intelligences proposed by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner.” Feel free to listen to him using this link:
