Step 7 - How our family continuously adapt to improve our homeschool

Read more about Adapt and change to improve as Step7 of the HCG 7 Step process

Since I enjoy doing planning, I also enjoy measuring progress and adjusting plans to still reach our goals. It has been something that flows naturally along with measurement. I have been doing it for many years now and is still continuously improving our homeschool environment. It is also my firm belief that one should understand that you are always learning and in a way experimenting, therefore one does not need to be afraid of change. As long as you change with the purpose of improving things, and not just for the sake of change.

How did we do it ?

As stated in the previous step (Step6 measurement) I measure and make notes on a quarterly and annual basis. Therefore each new quarter or new year sets the 7 Steps process in motion again. When planning for a new quarter or more often a new year I look at my notes to see whether any changes is needed. I then incorporate these ideas into all the elements I use for planning whether the Vision, Course of Study, Curriculum or Schedules.... Every start of a new year with new books and a new schedule take some time to settle in, and the first few weeks are flexible to incorporate adjustments to be made.

Adapting to change is something that is part of the process and it only leads to continuously improving our homeschool. I have learnt not to be afraid to try something new. I have learnt to take risks, and not compare with others. I have learnt I will know when something is working or not working. With experience in doing the 7 Step process has come more peace of mind.

I encourage you to try the Homeschooling Curriculum Guide‘s 7 Step process and see how it helps you gain confidence in your homeschool effort. To make it even more easy for yourself get the books....
