Home schoolers! Any advice?

Hello everyone, hopefully you know at least a little about home schooling when you answer this very important question. Thanks in advance.

I have never been home schooled, or known anyone who has. I have been researching, but I am not completely confident. I live in Ontario, Canada. I am 14 years old, and am currently attending public high school (grade nine) and want to be home schooled.

What is a normal schedule for home school?
Can secondary students be home schooled?
Can I try most classes by my self?
What classes do I have to take?
Where do I get my books and important things?
How do I make a curriculum?

Please help me! I feel so helpless because I am so confused. If you have any other tips you want to share, write them down.

Ten points for the best answer!

Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚ !!!

I have been homeschooling my kids for 12 years and have taught at homeschool co-ops. So I will answer as best I can:

What is a normal schedule for home school?>>>

Whatever you want it to be. It's like when you quit your job and start your own business– you do whatever works best for you.

Can secondary students be home schooled?>>>

I don't know Canada laws regarding homeschooling but usually if homeschooling is legal then yes, you can homeschool at any grade.

Can I try most classes by my self?>>>

Depends… What classes are you planning to take? Are you joining an on line school or umbrella school? Are you going to a homeschool co-op? Community center? Planning on taking recreational classes at museums and such?

You know… You don't have to take classes as a homeschooler… You just read, write, learn… Homeschooling doesn't have to resemble school.

What classes do I have to take?>>>

You are going to have to check Canada homeschool laws… If there are any required classes, but I think what you are thinking of is "home-bound education" where the school sends everything home for kids who can't get to school…

HOmeschooling is different; you are taking your education out of the hands of the school and into your own.

Where do I get my books and important things?>>>>

You buy them. If you want them. We just go to the library or pick stuff up at thrift shops that interest us.

How do I make a curriculum?>>>

You can buy them if you want. You don't really need one.

Basically, you just think about what you want to/need to learn in a subject. You find out the important things about it… You read about it, or watch educational programming, or go on a field trip. Do a project, do a writing assignment.

Schools have over-complicated the simple act of living and learning so much– forget all that if you're homeschooling. Homeschooling is a different lifestyle. Life is learning– do stuff. *Poof.* You're learning.

Example: Want to learn history? Go get a history book and read it. Go to a historic landmark and watch a presentation. Write a research paper about the Middle Ages at the library. Talk to someone who lived during WWII and ask questions. No tricks, no tests, no Q&A, no grades… Just real learning, by just getting involved with what you want to learn.

I recommend reading the Teenage Liberation Handbook or Homeschooling : The Teen Years.

Does anyone know of any online jobs for teens other than doing surveys and things like that?

Any answer would be great i need to find a way to make money and be at home for my child and homeschooling.thank you.
