Organized into four parts, The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Homeschooling focuses on a different stage in the "homeschool journey:" making the decision, preparing to homeschool, managing a homeschool, and helpful homeschool resources. Sidebar boxes warn you of things to be cautious of, notes with relevant information, tips on getting things done, and summarize the take-away from each chapter. Learn what's needed to homeschool, legal requirements, how to respond to criticisms, where to connect with other homeschoolers, creating schedules, assessments, obtaining curriculum, keeping documents, taking tests, and more. Advocating what desks and a flexible traditional approach, discover the basics of homeschooling. Written in 2004; website information has not been updated.
