We used Apologia biology, chemistry and physics for science. For math we used Saxon with DIVE CDs. The key is to use homeschool curriculum, NOT public school curriculum. If it's intended for a school, it assumes the teacher knows the material and lectures to the children. If it's intended for homeschools, then it assumes nobody knows the information when they begin.
I really enjoy your postings. I completely agree with you that teens must teach themselves. My son is pretty good at that now (at a junior high age),but I hope he will be excellent at that in high school. Do you mind if I ask, what curriculum did your teens use to teach themselves math and science?
LOVE this article! Thank you! It cuts right to the heart of home schooling - the whole point is to equip your kids with the ability and confidence to go out and learn anything to their hearts desire...to reach for and attain goals in the area of passion God has instilled in them.
You're so right about Mom's quiet time in prayer and Bible study. If I don't have this time alone with God, absolutely nothing else goes as planned. He directs our paths, and unless we are spending time with Him, we will not know which path to take.
So, thanks again for the encouragement. You are a blessing!
