    Default Student-designed school

    Just saw this and thought it interesting for many reasons, not the least of which involves the school labeling the program as 'novel'. I wish all kids had an opportunity to learn in this manner, or at least taste it. Watch the video if you are interested.

    We have a former teacher here that is doing something similar. So far, her students have ranged from elementary to middle school, but I'm interested to see what happens as the older kids turn into high schoolers. Here's what they do: The Marram School

    The five foundational roots (academics, service, work, democracy and wellness) of the Marram School sound refreshing. It's nice to see that big picture view of helping kids learn how to live a good life. I was struck by how the teens in the Mindshift video lit up when turned loose to follow their noses. I've thought long and hard about this tendency over the last few years as we continue on this homeschool journey.
