Ditch Grade Levels - Teach Mastery! If you really want to give your child an academic advantage, then stepping outside the paradigm of grade levels is the best way to leverage that.
We will use two subjects - math and language arts - to demonstrate how to customize an education for your child which focuses on mastery rather than grade levels. We will talk about how to get mastery on the records so that you are still complying with your local homeschool requirements of "180 days". You can leverage this with or without any curriculum, for any child. Special needs, gifted, and "regular" kids all benefit from this method - you will never say "my child is behind" again!
