I was fiddling with percentages of:
1) all-inclusive, wordly, teachers not exclusively LDS, secular, fitting in with the homeschool community, etc.
compared to percentage of:
2) exclusive, Godly, teachers exclusively LDS active members, gospel-based, standing out from the rest of the homeschool community.
I wish to figure out what percentages I want of each for my family’s homeschool.
Examples of #1:
Secular Homeschool Co-Op Group
Secular fiction reading
Secular non-fiction reading
Homeschool all-inclusive social event
Shopping at a store
Local Natural History Museum
Local Art Museum or Gallery
City Easter Egg Hunt
Bill Nye the Science Guy DVD’s
Any Secular Movies or DVD’s
LDS teachers when not allowed to teach with LDS influences, principles or doctrine
Friendship time with non-LDS people
Examples of #2:
L.I.F.E. School LDS curriculum
Discover the Scriptures Curriculum
Reading the Scriptures, church magazines, listening to conference
Attending church or church activities
Going to an LDS family activity
LDS teachers when allowed to teach LDS principles and doctrine
Friendship time with LDS people
Activities or social events including LDS people exclusively
LDS-exclusive learning Co-Op groups
Family History research, reunions, dinners, etc.
Family Home Evening
If I take everything I do in our homeschool, figure what amount of hours per year we spend on each, and then figure percentages, then:
What would the percentages be if I used these 2 categories only?
How do I want it to be for my family?
I have not done the math, but just looking casually here, I am guessing that less than 25% of what we do is in #2. I want that influence to be higher. I would rather it be 50/50 or maybe with the LDS influencers being at 75%.
