ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Description
Because school closure put a halt to the structure of the systematic academic learning of children, as a retired educator, I was compelled to help address some of the many issues relative to the pandemic. I chose to write a book to address education in the home. Included in this book are: chapters such as homeschooling schedules, computer safety, home art, music drama, art, dramatics, kitchen math, physical fitness, health, speaking, reading, writing, spelling, social studies, outdoor science, and rewarding children. It also addresses how educators, organizations, companies, institutions and states step up after sudden unprecedented changes resulting from a pandemic. I am talking about the pandemic-- the infectious disease that spreads through human populations across a large regions, like a continent. I wish to help families that are left struggling to find ways to teach and entertain their children while also going about the routines of daily living. Additionally, my book hopes to give families more guidance on how to better engage their children in meaningful learning as they go through daily living activities in addition to showing them how children can learn from experiences outside of the classroom.
