Creative Home Schooling

Creative Home schooling

A Resource Guide for Smart Families (1st edition)



Lisa Rivero, M.A.


More and more parents of gifted children are wondering about home schooling as a way to provide continuous academic progress for their child. This book offers practical advice on getting started, adjusting to new roles, designing fun and educational schoolwork, and planning for social and emotional growth. Author Lisa Rivero says that she wrote the book she wished she’d had when starting to home school her son.

The author explains how her highly gifted son loved learning but didn’t like school. After trying several different schools, the family decided to let him learn at home. Rivero describes several different popular approaches to home schooling, then explains the method she chose, giving plenty of examples of curricula and websites she found useful. She goes on to explain that many home school families network with one another, and children are able to learn some subjects cooperatively, as when a parent teaches a special unit on an area of expertise. And since home schooled students often interact with other home schooled children, as well as people in the community, at the library, doing volunteer work, etc., home schooled children tend to develop excellent social skills, contrary to what some may think. This book is an outstanding resource for any family that is considering home schooling their child or children.
