Buzzwords
Print E-mail
There are a lot of buzzwords floating through the air this summer as we consider education. Perhaps you have heard some of these: biblical worldview, critical thinking, joy of learning, hands-on learning, learning styles.

Although these words are common in blogs, articles, and conversations, I wonder if you have had time to ponder the significance of them. What is your worldview? What is your child’s worldview? What does it mean to have a biblical worldview? What are critical thinking skills? Are all curriculums the same as far as teaching these skills? How much critical thinking should my child be demonstrating at this stage of his educational journey? How can I help him? Is he enjoying school? Is he learning at his ability level? Do I know his learning style?

Before you feel overwhelmed, let me encourage you. God walks us one step at a time. We do not have all wisdom, even when it comes to our kids. But God created each child uniquely and individually. As we educate ourselves about our children, God gives wisdom. Ask your child what he enjoys or dislikes. What is difficult or challenging for him? How can you make adjustments to help her succeed? What goals does she have for herself this year? What resources do they need to accomplish their goals?

One of the benefits of homeschooling is that you can customize education for each of your children. As you get to know their learning styles, weaknesses, and abilities, you can make adjustments to your approach. In the upcoming blog posts, we will discuss popular homeschool buzzwords starting with a biblical worldview.

What are some of the buzzwords you are hearing in the homeschool community and how have they influenced the way to you teach your children?
