Homeschooling and Liberty Summit

6 Online Writing Classes for Homeschoolers — Guest Post

Online Writing Classes for HomeschoolersAs many homeschooling parents know, writing can be a difficult subject to teach. Even if your student understands grammar and can write well, many children simply do not like writing, resulting in poor content and a lot of complaining. It can be hard to teach writing if your student does not like it, or if you do not enjoy the subject either, for that matter.

Grammar is a tedious subject, but one that is so important. Why not hand over some of the responsibility to an online classroom? where your students can engage in grammar and writing assignments and even take quizzes.

You can rest assured knowing they are learning grammar rules correctly. They might be more motivated when they have to turn in assignments to someone other than their parent.

While this is not a replacement for your teaching, it is a great supplement. Of course, checking their homework and adding any additional writing work you feel necessary is still required.

At Grammarly, where I work, we grammar check hundreds of documents of all types. I often look at online writing classes to see how they’re teaching. This helps me see how people best learn English so I can improve our product strategy.

I often see writing classes for homeschoolers that impress me. Here are some of the best I’ve come across: Continue Reading →

Does your child sit at home tapping his pencil and staring absently out the window instead of completing his assignements? Or are you a frustrated homeschooler with a child who just isn’t doing well? Would you like your child to have a high school diploma but don’t want to quit homeschooling? There is way: online learning. More than 10 million pre-K-12 students will take classes online by 2014, according to a study conducted by the research firm Ambient Insight. It’s a genuine alternative for homeschool students who aren’t thriving in a homeschool environment or for parents who want to give their children a more traditional high school education at home.  Continue Reading →

Sweet Phenomena’s Tactical Guide for Homeschooling Newbies – The Wired Homeschool

“A tactical guide…” Those are the first three words of the subtitle to So, You Think You Wanna Homeschool?. I had visions of matte black pistols, tactical knives, and black BDUs. Then I stopped thinking about Call of Duty and came back to the real world.

I’ve read through a large portion of Tiffany’s book already. The information and resources she provides are relevant to those new to homeschooling and veteran homeschoolers. I highly recommend Tiffany’s book to any homeschooler who is looking for a repository of online homeschooling resources. I’ll provide a full review of the book later this week.

Tiffany Manley, author of So, You Think You Wanna Homeschool? A tactical guide for newbies, humorous anecdotes for vets, & resources for all, agreed to dispel my visions of explosions and handguns by answering a few questions about her upcoming book.   Continue Reading →
