Cognitive Science in Your Homeschool Series Collection

9 ways to use cognitive science in your homeschool

This series will focus on cognitive science and how that knowledge can help us in our homeschool. I will be delving into some of the concepts taught by Daniel T. Willingham in the book Why Don’t Students Like School? Although our students don’t go to school,  there is still much we can learn from cognitive science about how to teach our children well. I will explain the concepts presented by Willingham and also talk about how they apply to us as homeschoolers. We have the freedom to get up one day and teach our children differently, with a deeper understanding of how learning takes place. So let’s get started!
