Consider this section your course booklist and required reading as you prepare to teach your children.
The articles in the Teach Ye Diligently series are meant to give you an introduction, but these materials will help you deepen your understanding and give opportunities to learn from minds much greater than my own. I encourage you to gather a group of mothers to read these resources and meet together regularly to discuss the principles. You can find a group, or start your own, by visiting https://www.mothersofinfluence.org/.
