News and Views of the Week

Homeschooling News & Views - April 21, 2017

It’s been a mixed bag sort of week for homeschoolers. Lots of interesting news to delve into. So let’s get right to it!

First the News…

Should you trust learning styles or shouldn’t you? If you’ve watched your children’s personalities and taught them as they learn best, you know what works with them. But scientists are now saying there is no such thing as learning styles.

A wonderful collection of pictures of homeschooled children also caught my eye this week and reminded me of much of our homes. Some of these are great.

An argument for why kids should start academics later rather than sooner was covered here. In the same vein, I was glad to read in a mainstream news outlet that we make children sit still for way too long in schools. The solution may not what we want (yet) but it’s a start.

A coded text and how this family uses it to protect their children also made the news this week. I so love this idea!

Then the views!

It’s been a busy week and I haven’t had much of a chance to read. It is at times like these that I grab the shorter books so I at least have a sense of completion. I save the longer ones for when there’s time to delve deep.

This is what I’ve been reading this week. If you wish, you can follow me on Goodreads where I list what I am reading as well. My current goal is 200 books this year.

Have a great weekend!
