Strategies for Teaching Children at Home

My friend Allison over at Totus Tuus Family & Catholic Homeschool shared the news today on Facebook, that Laura Berquist author of Desinging a Classical Curriculum and director of Mother of Divine Grace School (MODG) now has a YouTube Channel!

Laura's book Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum is one that every Catholic homeschool family should own. When I first decided to home educate my children, it was one of the first books I picked up and have used time and time again.  At MODG, their Catholic, Classical approach is designed to help others create the following (from their website):

  • Teaches the Child How to Think
  • Follows the Child's Natural Stages of Learning
  • Tailors the Curriculum to the Child
  • Supports the Spiritual Formation of the Child
  • Allows the Parents to Play an Integral Role in Their Child's Education
  • Provides Counseling and Tutorial Support

I grabbed one of her videos to share with you today, here she discusses different teaching strategies parents can use at home.  Enjoy!
