Hi, I'm Susan
Identity Directed home-based learning goes hand in hand with a Bible Based, Christ Centred approach. It simply means to teach the child with a view to his/her God given strengths, weaknesses, interest, passions, and talents… their natural bents.
We homeschool with a ‘discipleship method’ or a “Bible-Centred, Eclectic, Discipleship Based, Spirit-Led, Identity-Directed, Relational, Literature Based Learners-at-home” approach. This approach can look a lot like natural learning but in our home, has a few differences.
Sharing about the how and why of our Sabbatical Year of homeschooling. Our Sabbath year.
We don’t use grade levels in our home…They are distracting and quite irrelevant. The labels of grade/year level can be of some use but I prefer to view things in stages of learning, rather than grades. Stages of learning is much more individual and personal, allowing for uniqueness to shine in the various subjects and topics of interest. While there is a transition that occurs when a child enters from a ‘Collecting Knowledge’ stage to the next stage, ‘Understanding’. The next stage (Wisdom) is very important and most enjoyable…and the one that we parents, need to recognise.
