How to Handcraft a Learner Centered Education
At its best, homeschooling creates an education that is handcrafted to meet the unique strengths and challenges of each learner as well as the passions of the learner and their family. A handcrafted education is a learner centered education that focuses on important and relevant academic topics that meet the learner where they are. A learner centered education also focuses on important learning and executive functioning skills. In this talk, Blair Lee will walk you through the process of getting to know your learner and how to use the information you gather to provide a learner centered education.
