Homeschooling High School – What if Science Just isn’t Working? «

Homeschooling High School – What if Science Just isn’t Working?

It’s always tough to decide when to remain with a subject and when to stop and try out something different. Jay Wile of Apologia claims that since biology, chemistry, and physics are such different sciences, it’s possible for a kid to like one and hate the other two. Dr. Wile said that it’s our job as parents to make certain they hate all three (smile! )#)

Biology has a considerable amount of memorization, but little math, and it’s very hands on. Chemistry has a lot of math in it, and it is a very mathematical, logical science. Physics is even more mathematical. Unless your student has adequate math, Physics could really be frustrating. Due to the fact they are so different, it is common for children to not like all three.

If you know a child can not complete a curriculum, it’s a good idea to drop it. Our job is to make certain our children succeed in learning, and from time to time that can mean waiting. When you get stuck like this, seek out signs in your child, to see what they would like to do. I know several teenagers who have done some wonderfully uncommon sciences: ornithology, mycology, geology. Don’t refrain from science, just change it so it is a more desirable fit for your child.

If you are mid-year, have already opted for changing to another science, then try to look for alternatives that interest your child. I encourage you to ask your child what would be enjoyable to study for science. Give your child the Apologia Catalog, or even the Home Science Tools catalog, and have them look over the options and choose a science. If nothing looks interesting, you can look at the Lego curriculum products or even a Teaching Company course.

Teaching Company lectures are usually available at the library. You can normally discover a science interest, and then do the actual research of the topic at the library as well. But in our home, for things like this, we ended up giving the desired subject to our kids for Christmas. For example, if he wants to do Lego science, give him a kit for Christmas. In the event your child wants to do astronomy, give a telescope for Christmas – that kind of thing.
