Description

Homeschooling parents must consider not only the materials that their child will learn but also their child’s development in terms of the skills and behaviors necessary to take information and build upon it and make good use of it. Polaris is designed to help parents focus on several areas of their child’s development. It provides a series of checklists containing 403 skills that a child should demonstrate in order to be a confident, self-directed learner.

The skills are divided into categories and are subdivided further so that parents can look at them in related groups and recognize where their child is strong and where there are weaknesses that should be addressed. They include both cognitive skills, which help in the acquisition and manipulation of knowledge, and also affective skills, which comprise the emotional core of the child—a key component of being open and able to learn.

Polaris is a unique resource that gives parents a comprehensive list of skills that will enable their child to succeed.
