Keys to Choosing High School Curriculum Part 2


 

Always at Their Level

As you choose curriculum for your high school student, it’s important to always teach them at their level, for every subject, all the time. One of the reasons why public schools and classroom settings have such a hard time educating kids is that they look at a student’s age and then put them in an age-based course with no regard to ability. Just because your child is 14 or 15 does not mean that they should take American history, Algebra, or this and that in English. Make sure that each course you teach your child is at their level.

I'm not a college professor, nor is my older student mature enough for campus life. However, we have a wonderful resource called the public library that has millions of college-level nonfiction books on any and every subject. We also can drive to college book stores and buy textbooks - as long as we pay for them, no one cares that we're not actually taking classes! There is also one subject we learn together as if we were fellow students. That is the tightrope we walk with the disparity between my child's age and abilities.

Lee, This is SO true~ I have found over the years of teaching my boys who are now 15 and 13 that it is even more important to not stress and consider categorizing them into "grades" yet, let them work where they are at and where their abilities and through their own strengths. We work all different levels in different areas because of this, we need to meet our learners at the level they are at not the level we feel they should be
