How do I set up a homeschool curriculum?
Many online resources provide descriptions, examples, and advice on choosing a homeschool style (school at home, unit studies, Charlotte Mason style, unschooling, eclectic, etc.). The style you adopt will influence the curriculum, whether it is something you create yourself, borrow from existing resources, or buy "out of the box."
An important first step in determining your homeschool style and curriculum is identifying your core values about your approach to homeschooling, indicating how involved you want to be in teaching your child, determining how to motivate your child, and deciding what subjects/topics are of greatest importance to you in your child's development and education. Alibris has an extensive selection of homeschooling books—including textbooks and guides on developing curricula and addressing developmental issues in your child—that can help you make the best informed choices in this most important matter.
