about the book
The Homeschool Diner's Guide to
Standards-Aligned Curriculum for Homeschoolers

by Julie Shepherd knapp, copyright 2006

A Standards-Aligned Curriculum -- designed to meet a particular US
state's  standards -- can be purchased from several sources and parents
may follow it, as closely as they wish, within their homeschool.  Several
suppliers offer the option of enrolling in an online academy to help
administer the curriculum.   Most
School-at-Home programs use
standards-aligned curriculum.

Parents can also "pull-together" their own standards-aligned curriculum,
using parts of different packaged curriculum and/or free online resources.
Parents can look up educational standards for each state at  
Education
World.     Canadian homeschoolers can find provincial standards at the
Council of Ministries of Education website.  The complete UK National
Curriculum is available online for free.  Many US educational publishers
follow the standards of either California or Texas when preparing their
standards-aligned curricula.  

Parents who are simply curious about what topics US public schools
generally cover in each grade level can look it up at the Worldbook
Encyclopedia website, where they  present a "
Worldbook Typical Course
of Study".  This is a summary of common scope and sequence for grades
K  - 12
