Project-Based Learning

Hey, homeschoolers! At this point in the year, I begin to think about changes I want to make in my homeschool. One change you may want to consider is adding some project-based learning. My guest today is going to help us with that.

Before I introduce her, I want to let you know about the projects I've included in Grammar Galaxy Nova for middle schoolers. While learning about literature, vocabulary, spelling strategies, and grammar, your student will complete fun writing projects like a restaurant review. Each project is broken down into simple steps completed each week. Whether you have a middle schooler or not, the good news is that all levels and resources at Fun to Learn are 20% off on Black Friday through Cyber Monday with code THANKS.

Now for my interview with Nancy Mikhail. I met Nancy at the Great Homeschool Convention in Ontario, California. She is an Educational Consultant specializing in the creation and design of engaging pedagogy and active learning projects that excel beyond the requirements of California State Standards. Nancy earned her Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at the California State University at Long Beach, and furthered her education by earning her Master’s of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from California State University at Fullerton. Her experience within the education system ranges from preschool to twelfth grade. However, Nancy’s skills go above and beyond the classroom. She has taken her passion for teaching and education into after school programs, academic advising, and nonprofit organizations. She is an active participant and presenter in educational conferences and workshops. Her drive to progress and create a better educational system allows her to take the lead in building curriculum, especially within language strategies and guided reading. Literacy is a vital component of education and Nancy’s desire to increase student learning is evident within her teaching and career. Here's our interview.

We discussed:

  • the benefits of project-based learning
  • easy ways of incorporating project-based learning
  • the projects available at

Connect with Nancy on Facebook and Instagram.
