Publisher's Summary

How can parents create a culture of curiosity for their children? How can they ensure that their budding learners have the tools to ask important questions, solve complex problems, and think for themselves? And how can they do these things in interesting ways that engage instead of exhaust their child’s desire to learn? 

Look no further than How to Raise Lifelong Learners. In just nine comprehensive lessons, discover how you can become a better, more inspiring teacher for your kids. Kick off the course by discovering a range of educational philosophies and schooling methods. In the lessons that follow, acquire the knowledge, tools, and tips you need to raise intellectually curious and engaged lifelong learners, regardless of whether you intend to teach at home or send them to school. Explore the key instructional role that parents play throughout their children’s lives. Find out how to teach reading, writing, and arithmetic to very young children in creative ways. Expand your definition of learning to include non-academic learning, character, and emotional intelligence, and see how you can encourage scientific exploration and artistic development at home. Learn how to communicate with teens and motivate struggling students. Understand how carefully designed chores can teach collaboration. Learn why smart room design will enhance learning, which strategies you can use to combat bullying in your child’s life, and more.

Your course instructor, Donna Baer, is a former elite boarding schoolteacher-turned-homeschooler who raised eight sons and two daughters. She knows better than anybody: Adaptability is the name of the game. In How to Raise Lifelong Learners, understand how to accommodate your kids and their unique styles of learning, personalities, and temperaments, from a mother of 10 who did it herself. Engage with late bloomers and stimulate underachievers. Develop lectures and songs for auditory learners and experiments for sensory learners. Unearth how a comprehensive, flexible approach to teaching in the home can enhance your own life.

You can trust what she says!

I'm a veteran teacher of private (2 years), public (17 years) and homeschool (25 years), ican confirm that everything she says is excellent advice for any parent making educational decisions in any school setting. her advice is virtually identical to my advice as either a professional or volunteer consultant in many settings. what she says is achievable and will proficiency the results she promises
