5.0 out of 5 stars Workbox System User's Guide for Home Education, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sue Patrick's Workbox System User's Guide (Kindle Edition)
This book is as far as I know only available on Kindle which is a shame I believe. It is easy to read and contains photos of the author's ideas and examples of school work that has been altered to suit an individual child's needs.

I will take her ideas into our HE adventure although her idea of 13 boxes or so is just not practical for us due to the fact that houses in the UK are a lot smaller than the average house in the US. Our kitchen table will be 'school'! Having said that I will adopt her ideas but adapt them, minus the treadmill she suggests to put the children on. I think we will just stick to the outdoors and their current chosen sports.

I also found it useful to learn that you can adapt work for your child should they struggle with something just by presenting things slightly differently or assessing whether too many new core skills are required for a particular work box and leaving some out. Perhaps this is obvious to most but to me it was a revelation;-) The author also gives some ideas on what to do if the parent is ill and how to manage a family with more than one child encouraging families to even have a workbox system for little ones from eighteen months!

The book claims this system will works for all kinds of families including families with teenagers and children with special needs. The author does warn that it requires organisation and disciplined, hard work from the parent to set up and maintain but promises a student who works mostly independently with a little help if required.

If you are thinking about using un-schooling style of HE then this book is NOT for you.
