Perfect reading for all homeschool parents Jun 10, 1999
Here is another wonderful book by my favorite homeschool author, Ruth Beechick. It consists of a series of essays previously published in a variety of magazines over the years. From the first essay, "Curriculum 101" to the last, "When the Homeschool Boomers Come of Age," Mrs. Beechick continues to amaze me with her knowledge, insight, and wisdom. More of a philosophy book than a how-to manual, this collection is so encouraging and addresses issues such as phonics, dyslexia, "The Neglected Period of History," and math content just to name a few. Christian homeschoolers will appreciate Mrs. Beechick's worldview as she addresses these diverse areas. For example, consider this quote from the chapter titled, "The High Road to Learning": "King David asked 'What is man?' In education we ask 'What is mind?' and it is almost the same question. Mind in its classic sense, as people have used it for centuries, is the same as soul, or man himself. Whoever holds this high view of mind travels the high road to learning. Behaviorists and others with a lower view hold theories of learning that do not work as well as ours." And it just gets better from there. This is a very readable book with short chapters that stand alone. Perfect reading for all homeschool parents and older homeschooled students. Highly recommended. ~sbd
