Five lessons to take from unschooling for your homeschool | Preschool | Scoop.it

This is also known as interest driven, child-led, natural, organic, eclectic, or self-directed learning. Lately, the term "unschooling" has come to be associated with the type of homeschooling that doesn't use a fixed curriculum.
