Homeschool and Sailing: Win-Win

Home­chool­ing your chil­dren is a nat­ur­al exten­sion of the cruis­ing lifestyle. Being under­way for long peri­ods of time requires cre­ativ­i­ty when mak­ing sure their edu­ca­tion con­tin­ues to progress. Since attend­ing school on a dai­ly basis in not pos­si­ble unless you will be docked at a mari­na for an extend­ed peri­od of time, what is the solu­tion? Before we set sail, I plan on find­ing the answer for my three teenagers.

My Experience

As a cur­rent pub­lic school teacher, I real­ize that for each grade lev­el, there are spe­cif­ic objec­tives (stan­dards) that must be learned. Trav­el­ing for us means many of these objec­tives can be met in untra­di­tion­al ways. From my research, track­ing what stu­dents are learn­ing is vital. Deter­min­ing what is the best sys­tem for this rarely involves recre­at­ing the wheel, unless absolute­ly nec­es­sary. Ide­al­ly, I will cull the best tips, tricks, and resources from those who have gone before me and from my eight years as a teacher, then fill any holes by cre­at­ing the rest.
