Eclectic Homeschool email list is an adjunct of the Eclectic Homeschool Online. We expect the discussions on this list to run the gamut of home education topics. The Eclectic Homeschool is published from a Christian perspective, but we do not limit the resources we use to purely Christian ones.

We Teach Abeka is dedicated to Christian Parents/Home Educators, who teach their children K-12, using all or part of the ABeka curriculum without the use of the ABeka Video program. The purpose of the list is to offer and receive help, suggestions, information, support, share favorite teaching methods, share helpful websites, share problems and concerns, and find friendships.

Unschooling is the confidence to trust that young people will learn what they need from living their lives in freedom and joy. An unschooling parent is a facilitator and cheerleader who embraces life and learning with curiosity and enthusiasm. An unschooled child is free to choose the what, when, where and how of their learning – from mud puddles to Shakespeare to Spongebob Squarepants!

Well Trained Mind The participants on this list discuss the book “The Well-Trained Mind A Guide to Classical Education at Home” by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer. This group is open to all homeschoolers who are interested in learning more about classical education methods.

CM-Waldorf This list is designed for those interested in the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling with a Waldorf twist. Topics for discussion will be geared towards combining these two approaches successfully, and any other related issues.

Waldorf Homeschoolers Special Needs This group is for homeschooling parents/guardians who are interested in or currently using Waldorf methods to homeschool a “special needs” child. Come join us as we support each other through parenting and homeschooling our precious children.

Spirit Led Homeschoolers of Tots & Tweens Inspired by Barb Shelton’s articles and books. One of her greatest delights is to help moms (parents) get set free to walk the path that God has set before them in raising, educating and relating to their families. Traditional approaches and curricula typically do a good job of preventing this from happening.
