Key Takeaway->It takes some effort on our part to encourage independent learning, but the rewards are well worth it!
One of the key skills that we as homeschoolers can impart to our students is to teach them how to learn independently. This is a gradual process, but today I want to share with you three tips to help you encourage your students to get on the road to independent learning.

2. Choose a curriculum that fosters independence.
3. Set them up for success.
