Moving towards interest led learning and Unschooling

Recommended Posts

livejoyful

Hi there! My family and I have been homeschooling since last year and have enjoyed it tremendously. We follow a Waldorf style curriculum and although we love aspects of Waldorf we tend to find our greatest joy with more interest led, unschooling style learning. If anyone has any advice on how to start moving in that direction and how it should be documented under SC law it would be greatly appreciated!

I have some info here that may help: http://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/homeschool-faqs/record-keeping-testing/

 

Also, read through the threads in this forum. I think we've talked about this before here. If not, let me know if you have any questions after reading the link above.

 

In our portfolio/records, I have a book list, brochures/ticket stubs/learning materials from museums/zoos/etc., and photos from places we go, a list of documentaries, a list of magazines (big on reading around here), etc. Very few worksheets, no graded anything. It's worked for us. :)

 

Warmly,
Dianna

Hello! I love the interest led/unschooling style of learning! Here are a couple of resources that have helped me over the years:

There are several great resources out there and researching can be overwhelming, so I'm just passing along these two sites as a great resource to start exploring the unschooling lifestyle. :)
