Parents - Come enjoy a casual discussion about unschooling moderated by Jen Garrison Stuber. There will be experienced unschoolers and those who have questions about unschooling and want to learn more.
Wikipedia says: Unschooling is an educational method and philosophy that advocates learner-chosen activities as a primary means for learning. Unschooling students learn through their natural life experiences including play, household responsibilities, personal interests and curiosity, internships and work experience, travel, books, elective classes, family, mentors, and social interaction. Unschooling encourages exploration of activities initiated by the children themselves, believing that the more personal learning is, the more meaningful, well-understood and therefore useful it is to the child. While courses may occasionally be taken, unschooling questions the usefulness of standard curricula, conventional grading methods, and other features of traditional schooling in the education of each unique child.
Audience: The content of this presentation is designed for parents although kids are welcome to attend at the library as long as they can be quiet and not disruptive.
