Project Based Home Education – let’s learn
You may have remembered me posting about the difference between teaching and learning at the beginning of the month.
Well, I decided to try and get out of my own way.
Luckily for me, there was a Fall course for Project-Based Homeschooling and I took advantage of it. I signed up in a fit of self-improvement with the hope that I will gain some insight and skills.
I’ve had the book for an age and had read most of it, but was a bit stumped about how to tackle it in my day-to-day life. I’m pretty good on the accessibility of things around the home since I’ve had a strong Montessori bent since Miss Oh was a little snippet of a thing. I don’t squirrel supplies in the tops of cupboards or behind layers of Mummy-guards, so I feel comfortable on that front.
What will need the most help is likely to be my observational skills, recording skills and communication skills.
Just a bit to work on then.
But it’s well worth it to expand my understanding, and hopefully open up new avenues for all of us in this ever-changing journey.
In the meantime, I’m off to re-read the book and finish it off entirely before we kick off next week. I’ll try to drop back and let you know how I’m doing. I suspect that it might be at the end of the six weeks rather than any time in between, but I may surprise myself.
Feel free to share your experiences of having project based home ed as part (or all) of your home education lifestyle… I’m always happy to hear how others go about things.
