Develop a love for learning in your children through Steward Ship Unit Studies! With the unit study method, we choose one topic and combine different subjects to revolve around and tie into that topic. First of all, the unit study approach is different from the traditional textbook approach (which is to read a portion of text, usually full of facts and not very interesting and then answer some questions at the end).
Unit studies are conducted in a more relaxed fashion and are interactive in nature. Although this exciting and lively approach to teaching works well with any number of students, it is especially great for large families. Home educating families appreciate this method because they usually have several students whose ages vary!
One characteristic of the unit study method is that of being more hands-on, project and activity oriented. Engaging in these types of activities is what helps students retain and remember what they are learning because they are experiencing learning by using more of their senses. Unfortunately, sometimes these characteristics of unit studies which make them appealing and desirable can also scare people away...if they don't understand this principle: THERE ARE NO RULES!
