Getting started with homeschooling is difficult, and I can only imagine the struggle that parents and students across the nation are engaged in as they are unexpectedly thrust into home education without any preparation. Forbes is calling this “The World’s Homeschooling Moment.”
Homeschool organizations across the country have recognized the issue, and are doing what they can to help parents make the best use of the time that they are in quarantine. Homeschool organizations are providing getting started guides to help jumpstart parents into this new world, and many homeschool vendors have started offering some of their resources free during this outbreak.
Some available online guides include:
- Homeschool Oklahoma put together a quickstart guide and is continuing to build a repository of information to help out.
- The Federalist has a 6-step Quickstart Guide for getting started home educating.
- HSLDA produced a 7-step guide to start homeschooling.
- Classical Conversations put out a three-part podcast on getting started homeschooling.
- The Indiana Association of Home Educators has put together a collection of resources for those unexpectedly homeschooling.
- Schoolhouse Rocked has another list of available resources.
We will continue to add to the list of responses as we are made aware of them. Please also check out our primary COVID-19 resource page.
