The Educational Spectrum–VIDEO

When explaining the core differences between various types of education, I wanted a physical representation of them. I wanted to show how they related to each other, so that it would be visually easy to decide what type would work for different families.

“Wright on Time” is Right on Time!–VIDEO

I love-love-love my Wright on Time series of children’s chapter books. After spending years trying to find kid fiction for my older daughter that she fully approved of (without much luck!), she brilliantly suggested that I write the perfect chapter book series. Here is a video of me talking about that process: This video was […]

Multiple Intelligences Simplified–VIDEO

In describing what Unschooling is to a non-homeschooling person, the first misconception that I usually hear is something along the lines of, “But… People learn best in school. Why would you not want your kids to be where people learn best?” To me, and all Unschoolers, school is not the best place for any person […]

What is this thing called UNSCHOOLING? What are unschoolers like?

Since every unschooling family I’ve ever met has been seemingly completely different than all the others, it made me wonder: just what do these people all have in common? How is it that they all call themselves unschoolers? Just what is this unschooling philosophy about if it can draw so many people from such diverse […]
