CRRL Picks: Homeschool Helper - Special Subjects
Annotation:A growing number of parents are considering part time or 'flexischooling' as an option that might benefit their child with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) but face concerns such as: Is it possible? Has anyone tried it? How can it be set up? Above all, does it work?
Annotation:Technically savvy resource about schools who deliver the classroom directly to you by mail, on video, or online via the Internet.
Annotation:Explains the fundamentals of exercise in a fun way, teaching kids to achieve and maintain fitness throughout their lives. Includes age-appropriate activities and an instructional sport-skill DVD.
Annotation:The prospect of homeschooling gifted and advanced learners isn't daunting anymore! Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Students gives parents all of the support and confidence they need to bring their children home to a school that meets every one of their academic, emotional, and social needs.
Annotation:With clear definitions of both STEM and STEM literacy, the authors argue that STEM in itself is not a curriculum, but rather a way of organizing and delivering instruction by weaving the four disciplines together in intentional ways. Rather than adding two new subjects to the curriculum, the engineering and technology practices can instead be blended into existing math and science lessons in ways that engage students and help them master 21st century skills.
Annotation:Story starters are mini adventures that suspend a student in the middle of a predicament. “What happens next?” cues the student to write freely, expanding and embellishing the story. (Grades 4-12)
