Editorial Reviews


"Anyone who considers themselves the ultimate guardian of their children's education ... will find ideas to think about and act upon." -- Amy @ Kids in the Studio

"Although the title says 'Project-Based Homeschooling,' it is really something that any parent could incorporate into their lives, homeschooling or regular schooling." -- Jennifer Lumb

"There is so much practical, useful information in this book. Any parent would benefit from reading it and learning from Pickert about the importance and significance of letting children (and adults) take ownership of their own learning. ... Pickert gives us the tools to be great mentors to our kids." -- E. Latshaw

"There are only a handful of books that I can honestly say have changed my life. This ... is one of those books." -- Dawn @ The Outskirts Nature Journal

"[T]his isn't just a homeschooling book.  It is a guide to parenting." -- Annie @ Bird and Little Bird

From the Inside Flap

Project-based homeschooling combines children's interests with long-term, deep, complex learning. This is an essential experience for children: to spend time working on something that matters to them, with the support of a dedicated mentor.

This book is an introduction and guide to creating the circumstances under which children can teach themselves. It gives parents concrete tips for helping children do challenging, meaningful, self-chosen work.

From setting up a workspace that encourages independence to building a family culture that supports self-directed learning to concrete suggestions for a step-by-step approach to inquiry-based investigation, Project-Based Homeschooling shares techniques for mentoring independent, confident thinkers and learners.
