This giveaway has ended; thanks for your interest!

Welcome to another back-to-homeschool giveaway–sponsored by Leadership Education.

On going back to homeschool with Leadership Education:

Seal6“As homeschoolers, we often get so concerned with ‘what’ to teach that we neglect the ‘how; and ‘why.’ Yet understanding these creates happier, more empowered children.

TJEd gives you the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ to make the ‘what’ more powerful, more memorable, more relevant to your children.

They will be inspired as you apply the 7 Keys of Great Teaching and the 4 Phases of Learning. You will bring them face-to-face with greatness. And they will love learning.

Discovered and articulated by Oliver and Rachel DeMille, Leadership Education, also known as Thomas Jefferson Education or “TJEd,” (pronounced “tee-jay-ED”) is an educational philosophy and a methodology by which great individuals throughout history have been educated.

Thousands of families and professional educators across the globe are applying these same principles today, with amazing success.
