How does homeschooling work? Each day, I wake up and look at the agenda I’ve created for myself. Usually that involves some reading, writing, and research. I also have chores around the house.
I have a lot of control over what I do each day, but I don’t do everything alone. I’m part of a local group of homeschooled kids that meets once a week with a teacher to study current events, math, and more. I’ve made a lot of friends there.
I also help my younger siblings with their studies. Recently, I worked with my brothers Creighton, 11, and Maxwell, 8, on a research project. We learned about Greek mythology and did a presentation.
Overall, what I learn is up to me. A few years ago, I was reading about U.S. presidents, but I found the subject kind of boring. So I talked with my parents, and we agreed that I would research the Indigenous people of America instead. It’s incredibly empowering to be in charge of my own education.
