Selecting the right curriculum for your student(s) can be a time consuming, heart wrenching task for any family that chooses home education. But in this book, Cathy Duffy provides the tools to make choosing the right resources for your child(ren) much easier!
In 100 Top Picks, she narrows the focus and guides you through a simplified curriculum selection process with questionnaires and charts. She helps you understand your own preferences in terms of a philosophy of education, learning styles, and goal setting. And she offers her "Top Picks" from each subject area, narrowed down to a manageable number of choices. You no longer need to sort through the entire universe of products before you can find something suitable.
A major feature of 100 Top Picks is Mrs. Duffy's charts, comparing her selections in relation to educational approaches, learning styles, and practical features such as prep time needed; design for independent, one-on-one, or group learning; and ease of use for the teacher. Complete reviews of each of the Top Picks provide you with the information you need to make the best choices for each of your children.
We believe this book gives parents just the right balance of guidance and choices so they can make well-informed decisions in their curriculum purchases, and we recommend it highly. 100 Top Picks condenses much of the most valuable information from her two volume Curriculum Manual, and makes the information that much more accessible. Her website is also an extremely valuable reference.
