The idea of Unit Studies as a style of homeschooling makes a tremendous amount of sense. Studying one particular “unit” over the course of all relevant subjects, depending on your child’s grade level, does more than just instill knowledge. It helps to satisfy curiosity, teach organization of depth of research, and could be a great way to stay on track, especially for those children who are just naturally busy.
Much like many of the other homeschooling styles, the Montessori homeschooling style focuses on allowing children to learn at a pace that suits their potential and development. It helps to encourage a child’s confidence, independence, dignity, and self-awareness.
Judging solely from the name, ‘Unschooling’ seems like a complete and utter departure from education, but it is certainly not. In fact, for some students, Unschooling could be the key that unlocks their academic abilities.
