Looking for input on Homeschool Glossary

Cross-posted to Love2learn Blog

A few questions for readers of the love2learn blog or

Glossary Suggestions:

I'm considering making a "glossary" page as a companion to the website. It would explain terms and concepts such as: multi-sensory learning, nature study, living books, cycle teaching, etc. I'm hoping this will help readers, especially those new to homeschooling, acclimate to some of the discussions.

Somewhere in this mix I'm hoping to write up a list of teaching techniques from which parents can draw in presenting materials to their children (such as the three-period lesson, dictation, narration, etc.). This will include brief explanations of each technique and resources for further information.

My question is, are there terms or concepts that you've run across that you'd like to see included in such a list (even if you already understand them now)?

Format Preferences:

Also, as I work on these types of pages for the website, particularly ones that might be referred to over and over again, I wonder whether the standard web-page format is good for most people or if there is a preference for a more printer-friendly Word document that could be downloaded from the website. (A Word document would be easier to edit.) I'm also considering Word documents for Reading Your Way Through History.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
