Ok all you homeschooling moms...
I am in a Master's program and for my thesis I would like to develop a program that will train parents how to be effective home-school teachers.
From my research I have found: 1) any parent can decide to home-school their kid- regardless of their ability or educational level. 2) every school district has different educational requirements for the children-per grade level and if you move the requirements will be changed. 3) there are many programs out there where parents can purchase lesson plans for every subject.
My questions are 1) Do you think you would be a better home-school teacher if you had taken a class (6-10 weeks) on how to be one(from making lesson plans to understanding how to teach effectively)?
2) Do you think the requirements for grade levels should be the same across districts?
3) Do you think that if you purchase a lesson plan for a subject you do not know much about (or have no love for or talent in) you understand HOW to teach it properly or in a manner that won't put your child off it?
4)If you had the chance to take a crash course on homeschooling would you think it would be beneficial? Or that it should count as credits (along with how many years you home-schooled) towards a teaching degree?
This thesis topic is not approved yet. I have to present four different topics for approval and the instructor will choose one she wants me to pursue.
