Little U Year 1 Modules

You’ve read our first post on Little U, and our list of guest speakers. Now get to know our Little U Year 1 Modules, where trust + open learning + community growth go hand in hand.

Each year starting 2018, the Homeschool Singapore community will offer teaching modules at Little U. These automatically means you get to be part of the Faculty.

“The faculty of Little U are fellow homeschooling parents who push their boundaries, and share expertise to teach one another’s own. We will journey with you in your Little U homeschooling years.”

These are our requirements if you want to teach at Little U :

  1. You have experience running homeschool co-ops. This shows you understand the homeschooling learning environment, how to manage conflicts and different learning needs.
  2. You are familiar in the homeschool community – people know you and trust you. If we don’t know you, we will not entrust you with teaching our kids.
  3. You must have mastery over the content you offer. If you want to offer something interesting but you are not good at, do it at a co-op level. We will not travel across the island to learn something we can do ourselves.
  4. You must commit to the Faculty 2 years minimum. A one year commitment is not enough for us to develop your teaching potential.

Here are the Little U Year 1 Modules (2018-2019)
The Little U calendar runs from Jun to Mar annually. There will be a break during the Homeschool Convention season.
