Homeschool Resource Roadmap; Common-Core Project
This online resource database provides information for homeschool parents relative to the Common Core Standards (CCS) – alternately known in some contexts as the Next Generation (NexGen) Standards, or the College, Career and Civic Life Framework (C3) – being implemented in public schools across the country. The lists identify those “homeschool” companies and products that:
–are explicitly aligned with the CCS/NexGen/C3,
–have some sort of coincidental connection to CCS/NexGen/C3,
–are correlated to the CCS/NexGen/C3, or
–have pledged to remain independent of CCS/NexGen/C3.
There is also a list of which standardized test are aligned and those that are not.
The site serves as a “full-disclosure” tool to parents who wish to make educated decisions regarding their curriculum choices.

Miseducation: Preschoolers at Risk – Across the country—in schools and in homes—educational programs intended for school-age children are being misappropriated for the instruction of preschoolers. Books, lectures, and the media propagate the idea that only a “superkid” can grow up to compete successfully in the adult world—thereby encouraging parents to teach infants and young children academic and athletic skills. Yet, there is considerable evidence that early instruction can do lasting harm—that young children subjected to this kind of pressure are, in fact, at psychological and physical risk.  David Elkind’s new book is designed to help parents avoid the miseducation of young children that is on the increase today.

Moore Foundation, The
Dr. Raymond and Dorothy Moore did pioneering research regarding early childhood education and the optimal age to begin formal academic training.  Many homeschool leaders today credit the Moore’s with the reason they chose to homeschool.   The Moore’s research and books were one of the precursors to the success of the modern homeschool movement.

101 Homeschooling Sites
Sandy Shives of “Elementary Education Degree” has compiled a list of 101 homeschool help websites/blogs and asked us to link it on our resource page. NHN reminds you that there is no need for parents to have a degree of any kind to educate their own children at home in Nevada. Not all websites listed are specific to homeschooling and NHN is not endorsing any of the sites but rather wants to make as much info on homeschooling available to those who may find it useful. Thank you Sandy for understanding the merits of parent-directed education in a child’s life.
