Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.

More Homeschool Blogs We Love - mediablog.prnewswire.com

Like many people this year I’ve been thrown into working from home. That hasn’t been much of an issue, to be honest. The real struggle is that I’ve become a stay at home dad, home school teacher, and still have to somehow manage to put in a solid 40 hours of work from my home office.

So many people have come to me asking how it’s been. I am fortunate enough to have a background in education so I feel comfortable with what I’m doing.

But not everyone is as fortunate, so we’ve put together a shortlist of blogs that can help you in your homeschooling endeavors.

Make sure to check out Part One of the homeschool blog series for even more sites to visit for help.

1. NWEA

NWEA is a not-for-profit based in the Pacific Northwest. Its mission is to help measure student success and proficiency in order to assist in developing childhood learning.

The blog is one of my personal favorites because the information is based on in-depth research by a team of writers that takes the whole child into consideration.

A couple great reads: 4 tips for families homeschooling during the coronavirus pandemic; and 3 ways to support kindergarteners this fall.

Follow @NWEA on Twitter.

2. Education Week: Rules For Engagement

Education Week is a news organization that looks at a variety of topics in education through an unbiased lens. It’s a great source of news on what’s happening in education nationally and also provides resources and advice to educators and families.

I love its objective take on what’s going on in the world via the Rules For Engagement blog. Parents can trust that the perspective Education Week is providing will educate them but won’t force an opinion upon them.

I recommend reading Teaching Kids at Home During Coronavirus: Pro Tips From Homeschoolers; and Social Emotional Learning and School Reopenings: A Guide for Schools.

3. Homeschool.com

Homeschool.com is an online community of individuals that crowdsource solutions, resources, and suggestions on how to best homeschool one’s child or children.

It’s a great resource for all of us who are new to homeschooling our children. I find the site incredibly helpful and credible as the community has been doing this since before the global pandemic. You can count on their decades of experience to get you through the school year with your children at home.

4. Confessions of a Homeschooler

Confessions of a Homeschooler is one of my favorite homeschooling blogs as the author, Erica Arndt, has been through it herself. And not only that, but she provides supplemental materials that are easily printable at home.

I have a third grader and sixth grader so we are going to be on different schedules with each child and at different levels. Confessions of a Homeschooler provides any parent with the materials they need to be successful. 

Check out these posts: Short-Term Homeschooling; and 2020-2021 6th Grade Homeschool Curriculum.

P.S. Ever wonder how we come up with ideas for our blog profiles? Our handy list of industries and subjects on PR Newswire for Journalists stays top of mind. If you’re a blogger or journalist looking for homeschool news, let us know. We can customize a newsfeed for you.
