5.0 out of 5 stars Vignettes of Experiences Applaud Unschooling, May 3, 2005
This review is from: Homeschooling Our Children Unschooling Ourselves (Paperback)
This is the book that verbalizes what so many of us do but have a hard time explaining to questioning relatives, friends, and just the people in the world that wonder why our four children are out and about town in the middle of the school day.

As a former teacher for 7 years in public and private schools, I can relate to the agonizing experiences of having to encourage frustrated students to struggle through concepts for testing, while having to limit time children spend on activities that are meaningful to them.

I have facilitated an unschooling environment for 5 years now at home. This is the first written material I have read that successfully enlightens nonhomeschooling families as to what life learning can be. By drawing on her own traditional school experience, both as a student and a teacher, Alison McKee is able to engage the skeptic and appeal to his/her own realm of learning experiences.

For the families that are unschoolers already, the book refreshes our spirit, guides us to be confident in our beliefs, and informs us that there is a beginning movement of Life Learning within the homeschooling community.

I have recommended this book to other homeschooling families and have purchased a mini stockpile to give to relatives that critique our evolution as natural learners.

This book has also guided us from being an unschooling family to one that is passionate about the life learning movement. It is an easy read cover to cover and a valuable resource.
