For readers specifically looking for information about sane attitudes and approaches to math and spelling (and other "school" subjects), there is entertaining reading that is informative and should be mandatory for all parents and teachers. Read this book if you've ever wondered about the power of video games or listened to parents debate their value.
This book will force you to stretch your thinking and expand the context within which you consider your own family's learning endeavors.
Jean Reed, Author, The Home School Source Book, 3rd edition
"The curriculum of love is not about externals. It is about what is essential in each individual human being, and in every child. Its watchwords are communication, inquisitiveness, acceptance, joy, honesty, courage, and curiously, perhaps above all, intimacy.It is about surprises, unveilings, moments of spontaneous recognition, journeys completed and new ones waiting to be undertaken. It is about being at home - in oneself - and going home - to a larger world that awaits us all."
This curriculum of love is not something you can order from a catalog or buy at the local teachers' store. It's different for every family, and even for different children in the same family. It's easy to talk about, but difficult to describe, and it doesn't lend itself to handy subject divisions or lesson plans. It's as easy as simply living and as hard as truly listening. The essays that Albert has collected in Have Fun, Learn Stuff, Grow are a good place to begin to get a taste of it.Read more ›
