Whether you are a seasoned homeschooler or just curious about this educational option for your children, Fitra Journal offers a community of Muslim homeschoolers’ experiences so that we may travel this less-worn path together, in sha Allah.
Our diverse contributors hail from both Muslim and nonMuslim-majority countries and have experienced a wide variety of homeschooling styles. The journal publishes personal accounts, methodology explanations, resource reviews and a bounty of general homeschooling information and ideas, always from a deen-centered perspective.
Volume 1, Issue 1 – ‘Getting Started’ has several articles that are especially helpful for beginning and organizing your homeschooling lifestyle, such as budget planning, curriculum breakdowns, advice for reluctant parents and solid self-care tips to avoid burnout. We also hear from children who are homeschooled, a single-parent, homeschoolers in Pakistan and Morocco, and a mother of a child with Dyslexia.
Volume 1, Issue 2 – ‘Muslim Homeschooling in the Digital Age’ addresses parents’ concerns about finding the balance between protecting their children emotionally and physically from technology while teaching them how to appropriately use it. Issue 2 also explains the helpful practice of Deschooling, includes how to build healthy boundaries with your children, has curriculum views and gives tips on how to incorporate ‘Worldschooling’ into your home-school.
