ScoreTeaching Style
26 - 52Unschooling or Child-Directed
53 - 78Combined Parent and Child Directed
79 - 104Teacher Directed
105 - 130Traditional



Unschooling or Child Directed: 
Parents who choose an Unschooling or Child Directed teaching style base their approach on the interests and natural learning patterns of their individual child. This style avoids use of textbooks, reviewing, quizzing, or even formal testing. The child's natural curiosity and interests are the key to the daily activities. There is a large emphasis on imagination, nature, art, music and almost no formal curriculum is used. There is no use of lesson plans, a defined "school" time, or even any type of grading. The child's environment, though controlled, is used as the bases of learning. A great curriculum choice for this type of teaching style is Unit Studies. Unit Studies allow the child's interests to control the basis of study.


Combined Parent & Child Directed: 
Parents who choose a combined Parent and Child Directed teaching style feel more confident in their family's ability to decide what's important to study and what isn't. The types of curriculums available for this style involve more hands-on creative activities and also more independent study and thought time. Many times nature and art play a larger role in the lesson plans. There is more emphasis on your child's personal interests and imagination. The use of varied curriculums works best with this type of teaching style.


Teacher Directed: 
Parents who choose a Teacher Directed teaching style believe that the parent should play the role of "teacher" and maintain control over what their children learn. This style focuses on curriculum similar to what the public school is teaching and follows content standards. Teacher directed curriculum is usually based on text books, worksheets, quizzes, and a lot of reviewing, in a sense recreating the school curriculum at home. The use of complete curriculums works best with this type of teaching style. There isn't a large emphasis on classical literature, imagination, or fantasy. This teaching style was prominent in schools throughout the '80s and '90s. 


Traditional: 
Parents who choose a Traditional teaching style tend to focus on classic literature, such as works by Charles Dickens or Nathaniel Hawthorne. Many times this type of style leans more toward a conventional public school teaching style with clearly defined student and teacher roles; clear lesson plans and schedules; clearly defined hours of "school"; more work based on textbooks; and more dependence on worksheets, quizzes, and continuous review. Traditional teachers also tend to teach lessons in such subjects as Latin, Greek, formal logic, large portions of classic liberal arts, and may include a large biblical emphasis. This teaching style was prominent in schools throughout the '60s and '70s.
