Homeschool Alliance: November 2019
What if we encouraged wonder instead of seeking rigor? How would such a shift lead to a difference in our children’s learning? How could it change our kids’ experience of childhood and their teen years? Can an emphasis on wonder actually prepare homeschooled kids for adult life?
Ainsley wants parents to value nature, story, play, curiosity and wonder as they homeschool their children, and her book shows us how various approaches to homeschooling incorporate these values.
Homeschooling parents don’t need to follow a rigid formula of any one way of homeschooling to emphasize wonder. We can craft our family culture so we slow down and make time for childhood that includes play and teen years that respect curiosity.
Let’s consider the art and science behind
- a pedagogy of play,
- a curriculum of curiosity,
- the power of story,
- the school of nature,
- and the magic of wonder.
We’ll read about reclaiming wonder, and Ainsley will join us for our webinar 7 pm ET November 14.
