to Bright Kids at Home, a place
for families who are looking to use a traditional education format
in their homeschool.
traditional education is the basics like the three “R’s”,
Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic.
For example, learning how to construct a sentence and why it was
important to do so (words have meaning) and learning Civics and
U.S History before anything else. Math builds on each new level
and the Scientific method is the basis for discovery in science.
you search for the idea of a traditional education today, you’ll
find it is mostly disparaged and described as out of touch. I
found teaching basics was a great springboard into more advanced
topics. It gave my student more confidence in academic abilities,
but also in mastering everyday life. Without basic context in
each subject, the subject becomes confusing and frustrating.
