I find myself in a new place with home education. I did a great deal of research when my kids started homeschooling. My husband and I figured out our plan for our kids for grades K-8. We felt good, and I really have not done the serious kind of research about home education since then.
Now I find myself with 3 children who are entering or about to enter high school and I find myself gearing up again to do more research. I wanted to find a resource to help me sort out what is out there for my kids.
I stopped by Cathy Duffy's booth at the Great Homeschool Convention and picked up her last copy of 101 Top Pick for Homeschool Curriculum : Chosing the Right Curriculum and Approach for Each Child's Learning Style. Because I am me, I asked her to sign the book. She gave me an odd look, but did it anyway.
I have really enjoyed flipping through it and reading about what curricula are out there. I am surprised at how much is out there as opposed to a few years ago. I have enjoyed her reviews and information. I have the eBook as well, but I like flipping through the pages and the quizzes in paperback book better. But, if you are more techy the Kindle and eBook might work well for you.
She also has a web page with more reviews and tips. She has extensive information on home education and many resources to get you started. I enjoy her web site and the information she provides. I highly recommend it.
