Taking An Eclectic Approach To Homeschooling Your Gifted Child

Taking an eclectic approach to homeschooling when your child is gifted or twice exceptional makes sense. In fact, I believe it to be one of the best ways to engage and challenge a gifted learner. Here are all the reasons why.

 
 

Taking An Eclectic Approach To Homeschooling Your Gifted Child

 

We are an eclectic homeschooling family. This makes it hard to describe what we do, and sometimes, just as difficult to measure our progress. 

What Is Eclectic Homeschooling?

We pick and choose from a variety of different approaches to learning, curriculums, and styles — and we are very often following a child’s lead, diving down rabbit holes, and even leaning into more unschooling than schooling.

I love the way Education Corner describes it.

“Eclectic Homeschooling” is an approach to homeschooling in which parents pick and choose the best parts of several different homeschooling resources. As such, it’s not exactly a set homeschooling philosophy (like the Classical or Charlotte Mason philosophies), because it will be completely different for every family who implements it.

It suits us — a family with several gifted and twice-exceptional kiddos. Maybe it would suit you too?
