How do you learn? How does your husband or wife learn? Do you know the homeschool learning styles of your student? Regardless of how you school, public, private, or homeschool, knowing how you and your child learn is crucial. If you are not teaching toward your child’s learning style, you are paddling up a swift running river. It can be done, but you will fight hard the whole way.
A simple learning styles inventory (test) will shed light on which styles are most dominant. Most people will have more than one learning style, but one will shine more than the others. Once you know your preferred learning style and the preferred learning style of your child, you can tailor your homeschool lessons to fit you both. It doesn’t matter if you are use eclectic homeschooling, traditional homeschooling, or unschooling, teaching and learning with learning styles in mind will make homeschooling easier and more productive.
