How to use Open Education Source
If you're new to home schooling and need a helping hand, you may want to do step 1, 2 and 3.
If you're not new to home schooling or you just want to dive right in, then go straight to step 4.
1. You might want to consult the What to Teach When page under the Home tab if you are not sure what content you should be teaching at what grade level. Remember to take into account what is appropriate to where your child "is" in terms of prior knowledge and maturity, not what grade level they "should" be.
2. It is not essential but is advised that you use a planner like Skedtrack or Schoology to plan your school year / month / week ahead of time, or Tracker / Schoology to keep a record of work done. Find the links on the Record Keeping tab.
3. Click on the subject pages and check the grade suitability of the given resources, to match your learner's requirements. Select your content and begin the task of planning, scheduling and structuring your next phase of schooling. Proceed to step 4
4. Where you see a dark coloured button a student can go to directly and start working online.
Where you see an pale grey button, it indicates a resource that requires reviewing, or printing or downloading by the teacher/parent.
