Review by Vicki Bentley,
HSLDA's Early Years Coordinator
Homeschooling parents often ask me, "How
can I be sure I'm teaching my children what they need to know?"
This book provides helpful checklists to assess your K-8 students
against state standards but, more importantly, you will be inspired
by Robin Sampson to rely on God's standards for your children.
Robin encourages parents to not separate academic standards from
spiritual standards, but to teach and evaluate children from a
The book is divided into four major sections
-a brief philosophy and history of education,
-details on preparing for, giving, and interpreting achievement
-guidance on how to use the Bible as the core of your curriculum,
-the evaluation checklists section.
The section of the book that contrasts the Greek model of education
(state-based knowledge) with the Hebrew model of education
(home-based relationships) was so eye-opening that we made it
required reading for our high school students!
The checklists comprise the second half of the book: The academic
skills checklists are divided according to grade level (K-8th) in
math, language arts, science, and social studies, with spaces to
assess up to five children. There are also character quality
checklists, sight word lists, and more! What Your Child Needs to
Know When is a super tool to help you confidently set goals for
your children, assess their progress, and chart your family's
course for the next season.

Coming from an educator background I already knew about the many flaws of the education system. Glad this book has put it all together and even includes facts I was not aware of. Provides a foundation for starting a path on an alternative education formation that appeals to people of Faith. Great book to show to homeschool critics.
