in Curriculum
Homeschooling has now a support that it never had before. Curriculum has changed, and the number of parents choosing homeschooling has increased over the years. As of 2003, more than 1,000,000 students were being homeschooled, which equaled about 2.2 percent of all students. Traditional schooling has always provided students with set curriculum. A students learning abilities were not taken into consideration; its always been a one size fits all curriculum. Thats where homeschooling stepped in providing the opportunity for a customized education.


The choices for homeschooling curriculum include typical textbooks to digital curriculum and everything in between. CompleteCurriculum.com stimulates independent thinking with its digital curriculum in Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science for grades K-12. It takes the student outside of the norm of a classroom and introduces them to a new world of learning by helping to stimulate them in the following areas:


Independent Thinking


Traditional classrooms which are dictated by set state curriculum stifles a childs ability to think independently. Complete Curriculum allows a child to move forward by creating an environment where custom textbooks can be created to meet the needs of each student at the level that fits those best.


Concentration


The education grade level content provided by Complete Curriculum helps to stimulate the students ability to concentrate. Some students benefit from smaller, quieter settings which cannot be provided in the typical classroom finding larger typical classroom distracting and somewhat stressful. Homeschooling provides a controlled environment where a child can concentrate more easily, also allowing for a smaller group setting if so desired. This increased level of concentration increases a students testing skills and performance.


Decision-Making


Traditional classroom settings make it somewhat difficult for a student to develop this important skill. Because of the controlled class and schedule, the student simply follows the rules, the teacher, and everyone else, leaving no room for decision-making or choices. Homeschooling allows the teacher or parent to develop this skill through balanced curriculum, and equips the student in dealing with negative peer pressure.


Time Management


Traditional classrooms consist of scheduled days. Math occurs at a particular time, following by recess, followed by Language Arts, followed by lunch, etc. The homeschooling environment helps to develop time management skills in academics and recreational activities.
