Micro-Schools: Creating Personalized Learning on a Budget (Perspective in Gifted Homeschooling) (Volume 9)
by Jade Rivera, Sarah J Wilson (Editor)
Gifted and twice-exceptional students often struggle to fit in traditional classrooms, and homeschooling isn’t always an option. Enter Micro-Schools: an educational option bridging the gap. Micro-schools offer personalized learning in a school setting led by instructors who understand the nuances and needs of gifted and 2e kids. Starting your own micro-school may seem daunting, but a successful micro-school doesn’t require a huge budget or the latest “everything.” Instead, it requires a passionate individual at the helm. One like Jade Rivera, author of “Micro-Schools: Creating Personalized Learning on a Budget.” In her latest book, Jade shares her successes and challenges working in and starting micro-schools. She discusses how to organize your school, hire the best instructors, work with parents, create an open and accepting environment, and so much more. After reading Jade’s book, you’ll be inspired to get your own micro-school up and running, ready to serve the gifted and 2e students in your community.
