Group Description

This group is no longer active, but you're welcome to read the archives which holds a wealth of information about Radical Unschooling from a beginner's perspective. :-)

=============== ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION ===============
Wait! This might not be what you want!

The focus is Conceptual basics and how they relate to daily unschooling life - how the big picture is expressed in the details, not just "academics" but everything. Some call that approach "radical unschooling" - it's unschooling all the way, to the core (radix=root). As such, the discussion is Very Analytical and sharply focused on dissecting out which ideas move families closer to that core and which will move people further away.

Radical unschooling goes well beyond ideas of “teachable moments” and “the world as your classroom” to a view of learning as an inherent part of life itself. In essence, the "Unschooling Basics" - the core assumptions of unschooling, are as follows:
+learning is a central human endeavor
+learning depends on the percptions and viewpoint of the individual
+children are motivated by the same needs, emotions, and responses as adults, including those related to learning.

The discussion will often focus strongly on the perceptions and viewpoints of children and how building joyful relationships is the key to supporting and enhancing learning.

If you're familiar with radical unschooling in theory, but unsure of how to begin or wondering how living Without chores, bedtimes or imposed limits on electronics and food really looks like, this is a place for you to question, ponder and become deeply familiar with natural learning and how it affects our entire lives.

Posts to this list should ask for a radical unschooling perspective or explain a radical unschooling perspective: how to live joyfully, support kids exploring their interests, and growing stronger relationships with them.
