There is a tendency, I think, amongst those of us raised over the past 150 years (and Iâ��m pretty sure thatâ��s all of us) to think of â...
Ashley Kim's insight:

Location is crucial for a child's study habits. It allows children to improve study skills and focus on their goals. Although location is important, the atmosphere of the location is just as important. Children should be in an engaging, clean atmosphere. This article provides a list of some of the things that is necessary in order to improve one's studying atmosphere. Personally, I loved reading the comments of what parents did in order to provide their children with an appropriate atmosphere. One teacher who had 10 home schooling children turned a garage into a 10000 book library. What other ways can parents/teachers do to improve a child's study skills?

Why We Should Get Rid Of Homework – Part One

Why We Should Get Rid Of Homework – Part One | Home Schooling | Scoop.it
Schools think that your student has nothing but time. They believe that your student’s time really is their time, that it belongs to them. What’s more, they also believe that the student’s parent’s time belongs to them, too.
Ashley Kim's insight:

This article discusses the idea that homework should not be allowed for students. This quote, "Schools think that your student has nothing but time. They believe that your student’s time really is their time, that it belongs to them. What’s more, they also believe that the student’s parent’s time belongs to them, too. They believe that the student’s teacher is also the parent’s boss" stuck out to me the most in this article. I think that this quote is very true. Some, not all, teachers send loads of homework to their students thinking that they have all the time in the world. Children however do have sport practices, art classes, other extracirricular activities in which a child needs to attend. In class we discussed the matter of assigning homework. Is it really necessary? Personally, I believe that practice makes perfect. The school cirriculum allows teachers to go over a topic for an hour, yet does not provide enough time for the students to go over it until it sticks with them. Therefore, homework is provided in order to practice. In class we discussed how homework is not necessary because it allows children to experience the world outside the classroom. Instead of children completing a worksheet about the different weather conditions, children can go outside and experience it themselves. The subject of homework is still debatable, however, I would like to know what a teacher who believes in no homework will do with math problems such as multiplication tables. Should they not be practiced at home?

Homeschool World - News - Some Fascinating Facts About Homeschool vs Public School

Homeschool World - News - Some Fascinating Facts About Homeschool vs Public School | Home Schooling | Scoop.it
Ashley Kim's insight:

This visual representation compares the effects of home schooling and public schooling. It shows us the statistical side of how home schooling is benefitial to a student rather than public schooling. Overall I think this visual representation is very bias. It does try to prove the point that home schooling is not what everyone makes it seem. For example, the socialization of home schooling is stereotyped as the student being "odd" due to the lack of communication with others. However, the statistics show that it is not necesarrily the case. I want to know how these numbers are proven to be true. Why does this visual representation start off by stating that "America's public school systems are declining"? Personally, I do not think that public schools are declining. In class, we learned about the  rapid growth in technology within the classroom. Due to schools providing technology, it allows students to be more up to date with current events. It also allows students to get sources outside the immediate classroom.

Obama wrong to deport home school family seeking religious freedom

Obama wrong to deport home school family seeking religious freedom | Home Schooling | Scoop.it
A German family seeking religious asylum wonders why they came to America.
Ashley Kim's insight:

Home schooling allows parents to have control of their child's religious views. Some parents feel that home schooling is necessary because they do not agree with the school cirriculum. Families are willing to leave their own country in order to find freedom with home schooling.  This article is an example of a family who fled to the United States due to Germany's law forbidding home schooling. The Romeike family came to the United States in order to home school their children upon their own religious views. Unforunately, they are being sent back to Germany because Obama's administration is not helping families who are seeking religious sanctuary. In the beginning of the article, it states how the parents wanted to home school their children due to religious views. Do you think it is absolutely necessary to home school your children due to a family's religion? I think that it is crucial for a child to have a stable religious view, however, the exposure to other religious views is inevitable. If a parent is home schooling their child, different views can come across the internet. I want to understand more of why religion is one of the main reasons for home schooling.

Living With Children: Home schooling is not a good option for every child

Living With Children: Home schooling is not a good option for every child | Home Schooling | Scoop.it
My 5-year-old son is an only child whom I homeschool. He talks back, argues and generally wears me down. I need help getting to him to realize that no is no, that I mean what I say. I know I’m the problem.
Ashley Kim's insight:

I think that this is a great article to show that sometimes home schooling is not made for the parent. I do not like how the article's title is "Home schooling is not a good option for every child." This is because the writer, John Rosemond's child was not behaving properly and being respectful. Personally, I think that the problem in the first place was how his child treated him at home. My mom always told me to act appropriately in school due to the fact that people will state that "you do not have any home training." Therefore, when the child communicates in a rude manner, it will exceed when the child gets older to his adolescent years. This is very concerning to the child, and as a solution, the parents need to figure out whether putting the child in a publc school environment will increase cooperation and give proper discipline.
