The goal of this course is to broaden the knowledge of homeschooling also known as home education, or alternative schooling. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from the information presented, the books read, and also from the experiences of others. At the end of the course participants should have a breadth of knowledge and experiences to give them a strong foundation in the area of homeschooling in order to then share that knowledge with others and apply it in their own lives. The course will also cover topics such as the history of education and homeschooling, personalized learning approaches, college and career life and goals, success in high school, learning styles, and teaching styles.
