"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

(One mother taught history through video games. I personally felt like this was a bit of a stretch, but it is a perfect example of the fact that each of us teach and learn differently.) I feel like this book is helpful for the mom who would like to spice things up from her normal routine, but is not necessarily sure how. I recommend this book. :-)
Because this book is so comprehensive it includes resources to help all homeschool families. This book will be a guide for those who:
- Are just starting out or have been homeschooling for 10+ years
- Have a preschooler or a high schooler (or many kids in between)
- Are looking for encouragement or specific “how-to” ideas
What I like most about this book is that I can refer back to it time and time again. Although some may read it cover-to-cover, I like to think of it as a reference book when I need some help and inspiration.
This year we are starting our late middle school and high school years I used this book for helpful tips about learning from video games, making tweens and teens more independent learners, and teaching a subject you don’t love (I was dreading teaching Chemistry this year and this chapter gave the motivation I needed to get started!).
I have also shared this book with families making the transition to homeschooling and those with young children.
It had many ideas including for those children who do not sit still. It also covers teaching in many different subjects such as maths, science and history. It is packed full of ideas and thought, as well as resources.
