Garga Posted June 18, 2009 Share Posted June 18, 2009 I've been asked how parents can homeschool without a teaching degree. My question to those of you who went to college and got teaching degrees, what did you learn in college that you use as a homeschooling parent? Please be honest. Is there some sort of class out there that makes the question "How can you teach w/o a degree?" a valid question? Or did you learn basic psychology, sociology, get brushed up on your own math and reading comprehension skills, and learn about child development? I've always thought teachers mostly learned the above and also how to deal with problem children in their classroom. Or maybe you also learn about different learning styles and how to teach to them. Basically I want a solid answer to give to others of why I don't need a teaching degree. Is a teaching degree useless in the homeschool setting because individual teaching is a different animal from group teaching? And personally, I have complete confidence that I DON'T need a degree. I just want an educated answer to give others. I also am not afraid to accept that there might be something that teachers are taught that I have not been taught, but I'm curious about what it might be.
