Why 101 Homeschool Ideas?

I recently graduated from a local university with a PhD in Educational Leadership. It was an excellent experience and I grew tremendously. I was especially grateful for my dissertation chair. Over the course of a couple of years, he became a true mentor to me and I appreciate how he helped me engage in the learning process.


When I finished, I wanted to do something that would benefit people. I discussed different opportunities with my wife and we talked seriously about the many people that choose to home educate their children and the fact that the number of people is rapidly growing every year. I recognize that home education is not for every family or even every child in every family. This podcast is designed to offer homeschool ideas to those that choose that particular route. In my interviews, I go over why people choose to homeschool so you can associate with the different people on the show; what curricula they prefer and why so that you get honest homeschool curriculum reviews straight from the people using it; creative ideas to inspire children so that they come to love learning rather than dreading it.


Why Ask Brian?

I do not want to pretend like I know every challenge you are facing in your homeschool journey. There is no way that anyone in the world of online homeschool resources could possibly know every problem that you will face. But what if you could, with just a good internet connection and a computer, let me know what your challenges are and what exactly you would like me to cover in an episode of 101 Homeschool Ideas? So here it is. All you have to do is leave me a question below and let me know what is tripping you up and how the 101 Homeschool Ideas Community can help you.


Submitting Questions

I want this show to be fun, personal, and helpful! So let’s keep it real and sensible, okay? Please use common sense and show courtesy with your questions. That way everyone wins! Here are some guidelines to ensure your question is qualified to be featured on the show.

  1. Please keep your question under one minute in length. If it goes a little over, that’s fine, but please keep it concise and to the point.
  2. I would love to know your name, where you are from, and a little about your children. Please remember that this will go on the podcast, so avoid being too specific. For example: “Hi, my name is Jane Doe from Iowa. I have been homeschooling my children for 6 months. They are 6, 8, and 10. My question is…”
  3. Spammy, disrespectful, or deeply private questions will not be considered for the podcast.

I use SpeakPipe.com, a fantastic web service that allows anyone to leave me a voicemail message through the Internet. It’s like magic, I swear  All you need is an Internet connection and a microphone. If you are ready to Ask Brian, then click on the link below and leave me a message. I will answer it in an upcoming episode of the 101 Homeschool Ideas Podcast.
