Project-based homeschooling combines children’s interests with long-term, deep, complex learning. This is an essential experience for children: to spend time working on something that matters to them, with the support of a dedicated mentor. This book is an introduction and guide to creating the circumstances under which children can teach themselves. The author gives parents concrete tips for helping children do challenging, meaningful, self-chosen work. From setting up a workspace that encourages independence to building a family culture that supports self-directed learning to concrete suggestions for a step-by-step approach to inquiry-based investigation, Project-Based Homeschooling shares techniques for mentoring independent, confident thinkers and learners.

This book is incredible. In addition to teaching how to do project-based homeschooling it's like a manual on how to live. It's going to make a huge difference to anyone reading it. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's like the author is taking the reader gently by the hand and calmly and encouragingly leading them through the approach . It's encouraging, it's inspiring, it's incredibly instructive. It was a joy to read.
