Helping your Technology-Oriented Child see Themselves in God's Word

Create a Student Profile for a Better Teaching Experience

Has homeschool become a battleground? The weapons of homeschool war are many: a few tears here, a meltdown there, silent refusal or outright rebellion. These are not really weapons. They are often your child’s way of communicating that something is confusing or too hard, or your child feels defeated. It may be time for a little redirect in how you are teaching that material. Creating an in-depth student profile will help you better understand how your child learns, what motivates him and what is most likely to get a positive response when learning gets tough. This session shows you how to create a student profile with examples of how to use it for homeschool success.
