Cox, R. (2003, January 13). Home Schooling Debate. Retrieved March 9, 2016, from CQ

The webpage entitled Home Schooling Debate explains the debate of home
schooling and public schools along with facts about home schooling and a
personal testimony. What interested me the most was that families who do choose
to homeschool their children are usually two parent households with parents who
have a degree or multiple degrees. The article explains why people dont
homeschool their children because they believe that a childs social skills are
developed through the interactions with their peers. The personal testimony of the
family who does homeschool provides an explanation of why families choose too
homeschool their children rather than send them to public school. The webpage
helps the audience to understand the pros and cons within the home schooling
debate and gives facts of homeschooling.

The article entitled Making the Homeschool Connection by Mark Eley

expressed a new program that I did not know of which was Community-Assisted
Schooling Alternatives which provide resources that would normally be in a
public school to students who receive their main instruction within their home.
Within this program parents can receive advice from teachers on strategies on
how to help their children learn different subjects. This article provides examples
of how students have interaction with their peer groups, also examples of how
students are learning presentation skills through the presentations given to other
teachers, students, and parents. The article mentions how public schools within a
homeschooling perspective are seen as a resource to their children. This article
seems to be some kind of news article that provides examples of how
homeschooling and public education can be helpful to each other.

Of Contemporary Legal Issues, 16(1), 99-104.

The article entitled Homeschooling: Depriving Children of Social Development

by Samantha Lebeda helped improve my understanding of socialization and the
ways a child can be socialized. Many people believe that homeschooled children
lack social skills, but even if a child in public school can lack social skills because

socialization can be negative and positive. The article gives the definition of
socialization along with some examples of socialization. Also, it gives specific
examples of different activities that homeschooled students have social interaction
with other which reinforces the understanding that a student does receive
socialization. The sources audience seems to be for those who doubt
homeschooling has any advantages. The article helps those who dont fully
understand what exactly goes into socialization for a student and breaks it down
into simpler terms.

Spectrum, 34(3), 244-272. doi:10.1080/02732173.2014.895640

The article entitled The Social and Educational Outcomes of Homeschooling

explains the study behind the impacts of homeschooling on a child and family.
The most interesting thing I found within the article was with homeschooling on
the rise public schools have become competitive by introducing new technologies
and programs for students to learn and work through. The article described how
homeschooling may or may not have an effect on childrens tests scores and gave
the details about how it does and how it doesnt which helps to prove both sides
of the homeschooling debate. The audience for this article seems to be for those
who are well versed on homeschooling an can understand the interpretation of the

The article entitled Difference in Competence, Autonomy, And Relatedness

Between Home Educated And Traditionally Educated Young Adults by Gin
Riley expresses strength of homeschooling compared to public school as an
intrinsic motivation instead of an extrinsic motivation. The article explains how
homeschooling is steadily rising. Within the experiment homeschooled students
tested higher than public school students in competence, autonomy, and
relatedness. This article seems to be for an audience who understand the theories
and for those who want to know the difference between homeschooling and
public education.

Romanowski, M. H. (2006). Revisiting the Common Myths about Homeschooling.

Clearing House: A Journal Of Educational Strategies, Issues And Ideas, 79(3),

The article entitled Revisiting the Common Myths about Homeschooling by

Michael Romanowski gave multiple myths that people believe about
homeschooling and how it affects students related to their surroundings. The
myths helped me to understand the other side of homeschooling. Each myth is
followed by evidence of how the myth may not be completely true. It also gives

facts regarding how a student that was homeschooled will not necessarily fit the
myth suggested. The audience for the article seems to be focused on anyone
doubting whether homeschooling is a good option or not. The article give pros
and cons of homeschooling laid out in an easy to read format.
