Education Plan for Malcolm Fox (d.o.b.)
The education plan is submitted in accordance with the Charles decision:
We will cover the following subjects:
Reading, writing, English, mathematics, history and social studies, science and technology, the arts, foreign languages, and physical education. [I could have listed topics or subsections of fields, such as astronomy or Ancient Egypt instead.]
We will be using a variety of materials and resources. We will be using the Internet, books, videos, libraries, museums, and many manipulatives. Some of the online resources can be found in Carolyn's article -http://opensource.com/education/13/4/guide-open-source-education
[NOTE: Alternatively you could simply cite: Rebecca Rupp, Home Learning Year by Year: How to Design a Homeschool Curriculum from Preschool Through High School (which is basically a list of (mainly) books with some videos and websites for each grade and each subject and what the standards are for each grade and each subject - in other words, it would be rather impossible for ANY school administrators to criticize).]
We will meet or exceed the 180 days, 900/990 hours of instruction required yearly in the public schools.
We are of competent ability and good morals and hold graduate degrees. [I felt like saying that we are totally incompetent, immoral human beings who happen to hold graduate degrees].
An annual progress report will be submitted. [AHEM recommends following their sample progress reports which I plan to do].
