Homeschooling parents are faced with a dizzying array of choices when it comes to teaching science at the elementary level. In this seminar, Dr. Wile, a former teacher at both the high school and university levels, helps parents make sense of it all. He discusses the two major approaches to teaching the sciences, giving the strengths and weaknesses of each. He then surveys the major curriculum choices available to homeschoolers in order to help parents focus on what will work for their children.
Dr. Jay L. Wile holds an earned Ph.D. in nuclear chemistry and a B.S. in chemistry, both from the University of Rochester. He has won several awards for excellence in teaching and has presented lectures on the topics of nuclear chemistry, Christian apologetics, homeschooling, and creation vs. evolution. He is best known for his award-winning “Exploring Creation With…” series of science textbooks. Dr. Wile and his wife of more than 25 years, Kathleen, homeschooled their daughter, Dawn, from the time they adopted her until she graduated high school. Dawn is a Butler University graduate and is currently a long-haul trucker with her husband, James. You can visit Dr. Wile on the web at http://www.drwile.com.
