- Have Fun. Learn Stuff. Grow. : Homeschooling and the Curriculum of Love
by David H. Albert
"Have Fun. Learn Stuff. Grow." Education is just not so complicated! Gently and passionately, homeschooling advocate David H. Albert insists that the curriculum of love is not about externals. It is about what is essential in each individual human being, and in every child. Its code words are communication, inquisitiveness, acceptance, joy, honesty, and courage. It demands that we assist our children in seeking to embrace a world that is their own, and prepared to render up her secrets. It is about surprises, unveilings, moments of spontaneous recognition, journeys completed and new ones waiting to be undertaken. Have Fun. Learn Stuff. Grow. is a powerful, humorous, fearless, and thoroughly appealing approach to learning that relies on what everyone knows but few have the courage to act upon: love and freedom are the cornerstones of any education worthy of the name.
- Haystack Full of Needles, A Catholic Home Educator's Guide to Socialization
by Alice Gunther
Most of us at one time or another have had to wrestle with the issue of socialization, either when dealing with friends and family members who question our decision to home educate, or when in our own hearts we worry about our children's hopes for friendship. In this book Alice shows that "Socialization is not the weakness of home education it is its strength and joy." Alice chronicles her own path from skepticism about home educating's ability to provide sufficient social experiences for her children, to the flowering of a local home school group that provides its members with meaningful social experiences within the context of home educating. Full of examples and practical suggestions, this will be an extremely uplifting addition to your cache of home education resources.
