How to Develop Your Educational Philosophy
What is an educational philosophy? More importantly, do you know what your educational philosophy is? According to veteran homeschool parents and leaders Chuck and Pam Geib, your educational philosophy is the long-term goal underlying your homeschool program. It should be the foundation of why you home educate. It becomes the filter you use when making decisions regarding methods of teaching. It influences your annual curriculum selection and personal goals for the year. In this workshop, Chuck and Pam share how their family developed their educational philosophy and help you formulate your own.
