GB161 Montessori Homeschooling, One Family's Story - Wholesale
Each chapter describes one year of home schooling from kindergarten through twelfth grade. It is encyclopedic in detail and charmed with honesty about failures and successes. This is quite a span, with the right kind of limited stimulus exposed at the right ages and stages and leading to wider independence. It comes through with the widest scope at adolescence. They had four guidelines: keep the developmental stage in mind, prepare the environment and offer the work, observe to see if it is working, and lastly, adapt and “follow the child”. This Montessori-inspired home-schooling centered in the family ended with Michael’s acceptance at Brown University. It is more than a fairy tale; it is a triumph for all families to witness.
