The girls are in bed early and special speeches at the U.S. House are on C-SPAN. I’m totally nerding out right now. What I wouldn’t give to be in these guys’ shoes.
So I’m piddling around with a few projects and decided to take a break to scroll the ole Facebook feed. On one of homeschool groups, a mom posted a link to a fun little quiz, “What kind of homeschooler are you?” over at Eclectic Homeschooling.
Score for Charlotte Mason Education: 0
Score for Waldorf Education: 9
LOWEST: Score for Traditional Education: -7
Score for Unit Studies Education: 6
Score for Montessori Education: 21
Score for Thomas Jefferson Education: 10
HIGHEST: Score for Unschooling: 23
Score for Classical Education: 8
I’m surprised by the results. If I took this quiz even just two years ago, my highest and lowest would have been flipped.
Even though I’m a spontaneous person who makes snaps decisions, I thrive on structure. Our homeschool was going to be traditional with structure, textbooks, and all the other usual suspects.
But then we started to homeschool and that all changed. As we went with her cues and our family grew, we fell into unschooling. I can tell you now, our oldest doesn’t fit in any box. She’s dances on it.
My views on homeschool have changed drastically in the past five years. They continue to change. That’s a good thing. Our children’s education should be tailored to their abilities, weaknesses, strengths, interests, inner clock, etc.
The results of this 40-question quiz were interesting to me. It gave me something to chew on. How about you? You can take the quiz here.
Never stop learning. Never stop growing. Never retire from the quest for more.
