A Thomas Jefferson Education

Posted in Home-schooling tagged , at 1:25 pm by mottoblasco

So, John & I heard of a ‘Thomas Jefferson Education’  and so we looked it up.  It’s not so much a homeschooling program as it is a different way of educating.  Instead of having children learn all kinds of facts in various subjects you wait for the child to show interest in an area(s), say cars.  Then you give them every possible way for them to learn about it & since they are interested they’ll wanna learn.  You show them how all subjects apply to that 1 thing: math, science, history, etc.

But also, you as a parent need to learn too.  And since kids watch our every move, they’ll be excited about learning because they see us(parents) excited.  I’m very interested in learning more.  There is a website: www.tjedonline.com.  I encourage you to check it out, even if you are not homeschooling you can still apply this type of learning/education into you & your children’s lives.
