    I’m hoping someone can help me in choosing (hopefully) living books that help out with the following learning outcomes: (I am also going to ask those who are familiar with planning curriculum for advice on just how to plan. I’ve been ‘winging’ it for the last 3-4 years. Mostly workbooks. I want to lean more towards a living book education. My homeschool facilitator says that every classroom teacher who gets the following “at-a-glance” outcomes, prepares completely different curriculum from the next teacher. I would like to know just how to actually plan such a thing. ie. I would like ideas to help me along. Some things may not be books at all, in which case I’d like to know what I can consider doing and how to implement it.)
