Start with Standards... But Don't Stop There
As a homeschooling parent, it is vital that your curriculum meet the basic educational needs of your child. Because of this, all lessons in Moving Beyond the Page are based on state and national standards. Every lesson begins with a "Skills" section that clearly outlines which standards are being addressed in the day's lesson. You can be confident that your child is gaining the valuable skills he will need in each content area.
With Moving Beyond the Page, however, we take education a step further. While the various state and national standards are crucial, they are viewed as a minimal requirement for what your child should be learning. We want to encourage your child to excel in higher-level thinking and problem solving and to develop a love of learning. It is our goal that your child not only meet a standard to progress to the next grade level but also be challenged to reach her highest potential.
