“A number of families consider homeschooling as a temporary option while some other considers it on trial basis. “
There can be many factors or conditions that lead towards this perspective. Often there are conditions when families find themselves in a state where a regular school education may not be possible for the children for a while. Unplanned transfers, medical conditions and or even the subject-specific issues with the children are some of the possible reasons. But the overall idea remains the same i.e. to present the children an environment from where he can seamlessly return back to the normal schooling structure. Here are some aspects that are important to be considered for short-term homeschooling.
The key difference between a regular homeschooling routine and a short-term routine is that in a short-term structure the children cannot be offered a great degree of flexibility with the daily routines. Although the whole idea about homeschooling is to allow the student to structure his routine according to himself, set his own pace and work around in his own manner, in a short-term structure, this may make the back to school transition a little difficult.
A little less flexibility with curriculum
The student can surely put efforts in the subjects he is interested in but in order to ensure a seamless transition back to normal school, it is important that the standard concept based subjects are given equal precision. The student will need to pass the grade placement tests and for which he will require an exposure to the curriculum covered in the daily school routine as well.
Don’t forget to improvise
Although there would be a lot of standard procedures that will be required to follow that doesn’t mean that whole idea about creative and interactive learning approach to Homeschooling needs to die. Parents and tutors need to improvise with their learning approaches to ensure both the academic and personal learning requirements of the children are met.
