Preference for homeschooling over traditional schooling outline Introduction: Homeschooling is currently becoming a progressively popular method of education throughout the United States. Numerous parents are making the decision to teach their children at home instead of taking the traditional approach to education. Thesis: Homeschooling is more effective than traditional schooling because it allows parents to design a particularized curriculum for their child, decreases the social pressures of the traditional school environment and offers the convenience of schedule flexibility for both the parent as well as the child. I. Homeschooling provides parents with the ability to design and teach lessons in accordance with their child’s abilities, learning style and/or special needs. A. The ability to target each child’s individual needs and capabilities increases the learning potential and improves their overall interest in the educational process. 1. “Research now indicates that the home is by far the best situation for most special children, so HSLDA highly recommends homeschooling any child with a learning disability or special need” (Wright, 2006). 2. In traditional classroom settings, teachers are often unable to provide the appropriate attention and accurately teach children with various different learning styles. “A teacher will tend to choose curriculum that appeals to his own best way to learn because that’s what makes the most sense to him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
