Debate continues amongst families in various homeschooling communities as to whether socialization is an issue worthy of discussion. A few in the blogosphere go so far as to suggest that any mention of the social needs of homeschoolers is problematic and only adds to perceived misconceptions about homeschooling as being isolated, with children lacking social skills.

Magellan Montessori Can Complement Virtual Learning Programs

This week, we’ll continue exploring distance education, a mode of delivering instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present in a traditional setting such as a classroom.

The changing face of homeschooled students

Woodrow Wilson, Clara Barton and Thomas Alva Edison have more in common than being exceptional leaders and progressive thinkers that enacted social change. Each of them was also homeschooled.

Q/A: "I'm very interested in your curriculum, but I would really like to see a sample of what a daily plan looks like. Is this possible?"

Great question!

Magellan Montessori pairs the method’s self-paced, autodidactic ‘follow the child’ philosophy with clear explanations and guidance for preparing an academically enriching environment. Magellan Montessori does not aim to mimic a school schedule or classroom experience, but intends to help families provide their home schooling child with opportunities, information, and independence in support of the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth that can be gained through exposure to Dr. Montessori’s Early Elementary Cosmic Education’s curriculum content.
