Unschooling in a Christian home
There is nothing incompatible with being Christian and John Holt’s philosophy of unschooling. A post for those who feel forced learning, prescription curriculum or programs just aren’t for their family.
So many people don’t understand unschooling and want to know what it actually looks like – the Snippets from Unschooling blog hop is a great way to answer the question “but what do you DO?” Facebook page
Christian Unschooling. I’m a nomadic mama with four lovely daughters. We’re travelling Australia in a small housebus — meeting inspiring people, learning lots and re-thinking everything. I feel passionately about travel, good design, alternative education and conscious parenting.
What Is Christian Unschooling?
The following excerpt, from the book, Christian Unschooling, by Teri J. Brown and Elissa M. Wahl, published by Champion Press, Ltd., hopes to shed light upon this relatively new approach to homeschooling. Although the term might at first glance appear to be an oxymoron, Teri and Elissa show the opposite to be the case. Once one understands the definition of “unschooling” it is clear that a family can be Christian and unschooling, happily and to everyone’s benefit.
