There are as many different ways to homeschool as there are people. At least it seems that way.
The Homeschool Style Quiz - This quiz is hosted on Homeschool On... I like it because the questions are relatable to most people. I got an almost even split between Unschooling, Charlotte Mason, and Unit Studies. And that's exactly how LoveLit Learning came about :-)
Homeschool Philosophies Quiz - This quiz by Eclectic Homeschooling is a bit more in-depth and covers a wider variety of homeschool types. Be forewarned, when I first took it, I had no idea what some of the questions referred to. But my results were pretty accurate and I learned about the Thomas Jefferson method. They explain all of the philosophies as well.
