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.
