EP007 - Why Now is the Best Time to Study China in Your Homeschool

Why Now is the Best Time to Study China in Your Homeschool In Due Season Episode 007 Track List: Intro to Episode 007 Digging Deeper Into the Eastern Hemisphere Using Hands On Learning Kits Why We Need to Learn About China Now Learning Empathy Through Story The Importance of Adding Biographies to Your Homeschool Keeping the True Geography of the World in Perspective Celebrating 30 Years of Sonlight Early in 2020, China was at the top of every news story.

EP006 Is a Great Education Really within Reach of Every Student?

In Due Season Episode 6 Can you homeschool if you can not afford the latest and greatest tools and tech? When I homeschooled my oldest three students, we were living on a shoestring budget. If I couldn't make it we found a way not to need it. These three kids all earned academic scholarships with their transcript and test scores. A few key educational goals helped us stay on track. I share them in this episode. A great education should not be available to only those who can afford it. It should be the gift every parent can afford to give their kids. Let's talk about how you can do that. Topics Covered Homeschooling without Tech Tools, on very limited Resources Replicating this system as a homeschool Idea What did my homeschool start look like? Homeschooling without cash Be Disciplined to Spend Less, Commit to Commit for the long haul --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ind...
