TLC homeschooling resources are homeschool resources for the future: focusing on Thematic units and the strengths of our children, appreciating Literature and the incredibly rich story-telling of those that have come before us, and on Conservation, nature studies and appreciation of our natural world. TLC are secular resources, focusing on humanity and building appreciation and conservation of our world for a bright future.
Literature - based learning
Literature based learning
Literature-based learning is aimed at learners who love stories! The theory behind
literature-based learning is that children are more likely to learn about a topic if they are
immersed in it through story telling. As the characters and the narration take children on
a journey, they are more likely to cement ideas that would otherwise be abstract. For
example, reading about a child living in war times is more likely to help children to
understand war, than it would be to read third-hand statistics or facts in a textbook.
Conservation and nature
Why Conservation and Nature-based learning?
CONSERVATION and NATURE BASED learning is about immersion in nature. This
type of learning is suited for children who are active and spontaneous and love to spend
their time running and climbing and exploring outdoors. This is based on the theory of
doing first, and then talking about/ writing down what has been done, retrospectively.
This is on par with many natural learning and natural parenting perspectives, where a
family is able to experience life first-hand, then document it for reporting, later on.
