A Must-Have for Homeschoolers  Jul 15, 2007
I liked this book as it truly is like going to a homeschool convention and getting very educated in every different style of homeschooling. I also found it very motivating and informative.
Excellent Resource for New and Veteran Homeschoolers  May 21, 2006
This book is so rich in information that I read it twice. Each chapter is about a different style of homeschooling and contains information written by experts in those areas. I enjoyed learning more about the different styles of homeschooling. And I know that I am satisfied with the way I have chosen to teach my children at home.
Very good resource!!!  May 3, 2006
Like the cover says, it really is like a homeschool convention in a book! I only wish I had this book when I first started homeschooling! Oh well, better late than never...

This is my 3rd year homeschooling and I thought I knew all about the different learning styles and methods available. But who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

It was quite interesting to learn that I am in fact... a Traditional Homeschooler. Who knew?! I have always loved the Charlotte Mason Method and the idea of Eclectic Homeschooling... but looking at what I am currently doing, I am definitely in the Traditional category.


It's funny how God reveals things in His own time. I've been debating, wondering, praying, wondering, thinking, and wondering about our curriculum choices for next year... And then I read this book and realize that the current curriculum we are using does not match up to my ideal of homeschooling. While it appeals to the busy, organized, check-off-the-box side of me, the fun and excited wonderment is definitely missing. And this little book helped me to put in words what I've felt all along.

So whether you are thinking about homeschooling, just starting out, or still tweaking the process (like me!), this book is definitely for you! It is truly a handy-dandy resource that is laid out in easy-to-read chapters. It discusses the what, why and how of several different approaches/methods/philosophies of homeschooling. These include Classical Education, the Principle Approach, Traditional Textbook, Charlotte Mason, Unit Study, Special Needs, Carschooling, Eclectic, Unschooling/Delight Directed and Whole-Heart Learning.

A BIG thank you to Paul and Gena Suarez (and the many talented contributing writers) for putting out such a great resource! Two big thumbs up from me!

Wish I had this book NINE years ago when I started homeschooling!  Apr 30, 2006
This book is just PACKED with information for the veteran homeschooler down to the family just beginning to consider the possibility of homeschooling.

One of the greatest things about this book is that each method of homeschooling represented has an introduction and two separate articles by two different authors. Not only did this format provide many different schools of thought presented in many different styles, this approach also gave such a rich view of each method that it made me wish I could do EVERY method... but then, again, I am the eclectic type and so I DO use many of these methods already!

I did wish that the very intense methods (i.e. The Principle Approach and Classical Education) would not have been listed first in the book because they were simply overwhelming. I think a new homeschooling might decide they could not do it and might not read any further. These methods were beautifully described, but I have to admit, my heart began to pound when I thought of how little Latin my children have been exposed to and how few hours we have spent on rhetoric and how many great classics we have still not read! If they had been placed after a few of the less structured methods... they would seem more approachable, I think. For instance, I would feel like I could handle some of the harder subjects if I could mix them with a style more like my own natural bent. I tend to mix Charlotte Mason, unit study, classical education and I use some workbooks, as well. Knowing more about the Principle Approach, I realized how much I agree with the concepts discussed and plan to adjust my style to reflect what I have learned!

I love the format of this book. I think Charlotte Mason would agree that its short, readable chapters lend themselves well to being fully understood in a one-sitting space of time without watering down the content or, conversely, fatiguing the mind.

On page 43 I think some of the scripture references listed were incorrect, but this book was otherwise flawless as far as I could see.

I found so much encouragement to help me on my own journey... especially the wonderful articles on homeschooling special needs children. Every article buoyed up my faith and my excitement at the wonderful gift God has given our family by allowing us the privelege of homeschooling our children!

My favorite quote from the book is by Christine M. Field (pg. 122):

"Let God work through your weaknesses. In his grace, he can accomplish what he wishes in your life and in your child's life. When we lay our burdens and the tasks that seem insurmountable at his feet, he opens the doors of opportunity and brings encouragers alongside as we navigate the path ahead."

This book definitely IS the opportunity, clearly expressed and the encourager to run along beside the overwhelmed homeschooling family. Thank-you to the authors and editors of this book for this well-compiled, beautifully written resource! I know it is a "keeper" and I will be recommending it often! :)
Very Helpful  Apr 29, 2006
With millions of people in or entering the homeschool arena today, and with seemingly as many methods of homeschooling, deciding what curriculum & method of homeschooling is best for your family can be overwhelming.

Paul & Gena Suarez have put together a book called Homeschool Methods: Seasoned Advice on Learning Styles that help to demystifiy these approaches & styles.

Homeschool Methods (HM) covers "Classical Education", the "Charlotte Mason method", the "Textbook approach", "Unit Studies", the "Principle Approach", "Unschooling", and "Eclectic". It also discusses topics such as "Special Needs", "Whole Hearted Learning" and a method that I have never heard of "Car Schooling". Each method has an introduction written by the Suarezes and two chapters that were written by two different "experts" of that approach. Amongst these "experts" are Christine Miller, Diana Waring, Maggie Hogan, Catherine Levision, and Douglas Wilson to mention a few.

Diana Waring discusses, in the "Eclectic" chapter, the different learning styles. She states "As homeschooling parents we need to be set free with the 'one size fits all' mentaility that we experienced in school, and we need to allow our children space and grace as they try out these different areas in everyday life, discovering their unique blend of strengths and weaknesses." If you need help deciding what approach is right for you and your family and how to give them the "space and grace" then read this book!
