Homeschooling 101

With the Coronavirus crisis closing schools across the nation, The Working Woman Radio Show decided to do a special podcast episode called Homeschooling 101 to aid parents with helping their children learn at home. 

Business as usual has ceased, and millions of parents and children are home trying to figure out what to do for school.

Although schools are doing their best to keep learning going for students, most school systems were not set up to instruct students virtually.  Many of them are still trying to figure out how to do this.  In the meantime, many parents are in a panic and find themselves scrambling to engage and educate their kids.

Angela Paul, a math and science teacher, tutor, and former home educator, joins me in the studio for a special homeschooling session. As former homeschoolers, she and I discuss various activities, that parents can do for math, reading, writing, science for each of the grade levels.

Homeschooling 101Download books from the NYPL for free

There’s good news for all the New York City-based e-bookworms out there. The New York Public Library has an app that allows anyone with a library card (and an iOS or Android phone) to “borrow” any of the 300,000 e-books in the collection.

It’s called SimplyE and will allow you to read books on your phone, but beware, there might be a wait list for some popular titles, including the Game of Thrones series. (Check out the Harry Potter books, quick!)

In July of 2005, we were granted accreditation through the Georgia Accreditation Commission (GAC), the premier statewide accrediting body.
