April 14, 1986. They plan Eo then cbnEinue the drive in foLlowing months until lhe goal is met. Sounds llke a greaE idea to us practical, workable, and everYone benefits: Ehe homeschoolers, us, Ehe llbrarles, Lhe comnunities. I checked wlth the Boston Public Library and learned Ehat here, at leasE, book donaEions are even tax deductiblel H,O.M.E, could buy the books from us at our regular caEalog prices, or, Eo make their dollars go furEher, they could deal direcLly with DeLl Publishers for a quantity discounE. Maybe in some PIaces iE would be best to have lhe librarY order the books. svsEem It is Donna Mahr's hope that People in other areas would like Lo coPy this idea and Eake responsibilicy for their own staEes or regions. And in fact Ehis has aLready begun. When I described this plan co two Oregon readers, Candace Syman-Degler and Sheri Clemen, who had expressed interesE in donating books to libraries as a memorial to John, Ehey said, "VJe'lI go for it!" and are Eaking on the staEe of Oregon. For their addresses, see Ehe DirecEory in Ehis issue. If there is indeed interesE in this, we are willing Eo make up a bookpLate here, maybe with a photo of John, saying more or less, "In honor of the memory of John HoIt, 19231985, Ehis book is donated by _ ," An individuaL who iusE to wantE?fE donate a copy of one-of John's books wiEhouE getting involved in a big organizational effort couLd use this bookplate, too. If rhis idea is to go anywhere, it wiLL depend on the efforts of You outside Ehe office. Many of you have asked what you can do - welL, here's chance.

Jerry Friedman of CaLif.: ...As an eLemenEary school Eeacher aE Walden Center School in Berkeley, California I was, in Ehe late sixEies, asked Eo Eeach a seminar at Ehe University of California Extension on music and educaEion. I was cold I could hire anyone I pleased co join me in teaching Ehe course. I chose to phone John HoIt in Boston because I had so admired his firsE book. The course was a success and John and I hic it off. Next came two soLd-ouE seminars on "Non-AuthoriEarian Teaching" with John, PauL Goodman, Herb KohI, Jim Herndon, J. Feacherstone and oEhers. ThaE clinched it! John and I became good friends, with him often staying at my place in Berkeley and later, aE Inverness nexE Eo Ehe PoinE Reyes National Seashore. When John visited, we spent our Eime, NOT calking about educaEion, but raEher Iistening Co music, eaEing good food, hiking wiEh my dog OELer, and once, John even risked a horseback ride with me in the park, When John couldn't visiE, we exchanged leEEers...

sleep on SepEember 18, four days afEer John. I loved them boEh. For me John was an exceDEionaL human being because he cared- so much about life, people, and-fe--f-EiTfrETE. I loved his enthusiasm, his sEubbornness, and most of aLl, his genuine concern about the resE of us.,.

Sheffer (PA): ...Long before I acEually meE John Holc, I knew him Ehrough Ehe books he wroEe. Had this been all I ever knew of him, his effect on me would stiLl have been profound, for by Ehe time I wroEe my firsE Lecter Eo him, something inside me had felt Ehe call of his words and had begun Eo heed Ehem. Since Ehat time, so much of my life has been a response Eo that. call, and for years John made responding boEh easier and richer by giving me the gift of his correspondence. Perhaps John knew, when in his firsc reolv Eo a leEEer of mine he r^irote: "And do f eel f ree Eo write whenever you want,tt how much that would mean to a l4-year-old who thoughE she was the onLy oEher person in Ehe worLd wiEh such beliefs and convictions. Perhaps thaE was just his way, to sense intuiEively whaE was needed in a given situaEion and lo act on it. . . There is so much about John to remember, I think of che way liEtle creatures seemed Eo sense a sympaEhy or kindredness in him; young children, dogs on Ieashes, all wouLd seem Eo seek him ouE when he sat in ouEdoor cafes and pubLic gardens. And I Laugh when I Ehink of the way John held a childrs fascinaEion for the deEaiLs of life - "adults learn from children,rr he would say, going up to people on the street Eo ask questions abouE Ehings thaE interested him while I hung back, more caucious, less like a child. I learned from John. And I think most vividLy of his leEEers, for this is how I knew him best - leEters fuLl of quotes, anec-dotes, his own refLecEions, always on Ehe mark, aLways full of his presence. John never relied on platiEudes or Ehe famiLiarity of Che argumenE. buE filled his leCEers with his own Ehoughts, ambivalences, sErug- ' gles, and aLways made me feel thaE I'd goccen a letter direcEly from him to me, with noEhing else getting in Ene way. The last Eime I saw John, he talked of rereading George Dennison's THE LIVES OF CHILDREN for what musE have been Ehe thousandEh time, so affected was he by rhis book, and being moved Eo Eears by Ehe memory of how much he had once expected Eo see, hor,r lictle of it was realized. And yet he also described himself as one who had "noE yeE quite given up hope." This was the balance wiEhin which John saw the world and wrote about it; Ehis mix of hope and despair fueled his incisiveness, his clear description of whac was wrong and his fierce insisEence Ehat we recognize exacEly Ehe disEance between whaE we wriEe and what is Likely to happen, and, equaLly, his unshakeable belief in Ehe Dossibleness of Ehings, his absoLutely unwavering faiEh in children, in "ordinqrvrr nannlo in fho frmiIu nâ‚Ź nnl"'J leagues whose work he supporEed...

From Susan Richman (PA): . ..The first time I met John Holt was aE a television sEudio in Pittsburgh, where John was being inEerviewed about homeschooLing. WhaE I felt right off was his tangible delight in Ehe chiLdren Ehere. He turned from his adult discussion with

Ehe TV moderator, and looked down at 2l-monEh-oLd Jacob - Jacob absorbed in juggLing a slinky abouE in his

chubby hands, John absored in waEching Jacob. Later Ehe room was full of adults, many asking the usual homeschooling quesEions, seeking the usuaL advice. Again John's attenEion wandered - he looked over aE a coy dinosaur set-up ny 4r2-year-old Jesse had arranged on a sofa cushion. John reached over and touched che miniature gianEs, saying their names, watching Jesse's play, entering for a moment Jesse's world. LaEer, as John was gathering his things Eo caEch a pLane back Eo Boston, I thought of one more question, a question from Jesse. We'd been reading RoberE McCloskey's deLightfuL MAKE [^JAY FOR DUCKLINGS, and I'd EoId Jesse Ehat John lived in BosEon, Ehe setEing for Ehe sEory. Jesse now wondered if there really were ducks in Ehe Public Gardens, and if John had ever seen them, Again, John turned from Ehe adulE auestions. and focussed on this ouestion from a child.

The best way to do this is Eo lisren

(1972):

. ..An eighth-grade private school teacher once invited me to EaIk Eo her class. On a warm spring day we sat outside on Ehe grass and discussed what ir might mean to be able to direcE one's own learning, explore the world in one's own way insEead of someone eLse's, The students were very exciEed, involved, serious.

MORE ABOUT HOUSEWORK

I want to respond !o the

After reading SIDETRACKED HOME EXECUTIVES, I made a set of vinyl pockeEs which hang in the kitchen - Ewo rows of four Pockets each, In Ehe top four pockeEs go 3x5 cards with one job on each card. Morning cards are yeLlow (brush your Eeeth, comb your hair...) daytime is whiEe, meaLtime (supper, mainIY) is green, bedEime blue. When theY do a job, che card goes_to Ehe lower oocket. I can see f rom across El-.e ioom who is done and who isn't, and Ehey never forgeE their jobs. We all have bad days. Sometimes iE's best Eo help your child - offer to help today, raEher than Punish. Mom's help is always Ewo-edgedr anYway: companionabLe, but demanding. FinalLy, I have to be ilonest. I have househoLd help one daY a week. She doesn't know where Eo Put many things, and she has her own v'ays, but she vacuums and scrubs the fixtures and is kind to the baby (and everyone else) so we geE a fresh sEart every week. That makes all Ehe difference, because Ehe job is never overwhelming as it used to be.

The narracor describes how he met Harold in New York when HaroId's popuLarity was peaking, EerseLy describing Ehe New York cuLtural scene and Harold's disenchanEment with it. The passages thaE deaL with Harold's work with retarded children are speciaL, but typical of Dennison's wriEing, for Eheir sEraighEforward descripEion of Ehe acCion and Ehe poecic descripEions of whaE feelings and Ehoughts the chiLdren have. Here, Harold and his parEner Ricky are helping some retarded boys put on a play: ...The boys performed their musical and physicaL Easks with an earnesEness thaE at first imDressed me hv i t-s nrrri rv. huE that I Ehen saw was an oasis of adequacy in an absoluEe deserE of failure.

The children are forever weaving in and out of the sEory, providing us niEh commencary on Ehe adults and vice-versa, and in manv wavs the book is about the children. I touLd quote passages forever regarding this aspecE of the book, but I won'E. George is not a fussy, overly-ornate wriEer, and Ehis sEyle fits the book and Ehe chiLdren well. However, even the chiLdren stir difficulE memories for Luisa to bear; she LosE her husband and two chiLdren during Ehe infamous Fascist coup in Chile. The deEails and reasons for this are only given at Ehe end of the book, in horri[ying "depositions" from eye-wiEnesses Eo Ehe torEures and murders Ehat took place. The book builds up such a pasEoraL almosphere through its descripEions of che land, the house, Ehe children, and the adulcs' inEeracEion with each other, that the deposition pages contrasE violently and shock us ttich Eheir inhumanity amidsE so much good wilL among friends. -How could Luisa ever bear such horrors? How can such things Eake place in a worLd thaE can be as wcnderfuL as Ehis home in Maine? Near the end of the book, Ida, Ehe oLdesE, asks her faEher abouE the reaL dangers of nuc.lear power afcer they see a movie abouE a nuclear PotnJer oLant disasE.er. lda Dresses her fathbr for facEs, and he'teLLs her Eire EruEh: nucLear wasEe will be with us for thousands of years, we don't know how Eo safeLy dispose of iE, and iE is illegalLy dumped in unsuspecting councies.

book, Lowma@s subEitled "A Guide to Re-ShaPing Your Job to IncLude a Baby In Your Life," can be very heLpfuL Eo homeschoolers. Published by La Leche League, iE shows how a mother can have a career or job and stiLl spend as much time as possible with her children. There are a number of very workable ideas presented, wiEh the first-Person accounts from many women who wanE to or need to work and don't want Eo give up Eheir time with their families. Some ways to have a job and raise a family Ehat are emPhasized are: working at home; bringing children to work; sEaggering working hours

with the husband; working part-time; using flexEime and/or job sharing. Lowman doesnrt jusE offer ideas, she goes inEo detail on how Eo go about it - approaching an employer in a posiEive way, including the father in Ehe whol-e Ehing, managing breastfeeding and working, and even celling which employers are open Eo flexible work ootions. Another helpful aspecE of the hook is the view we geE of tradiEionaI ideas abouE working and Ehe current "revolution" Eo heLp meet the needs of working mothers. There is also a secEion on daycare, should thaE prove Eo be necessary. Mostly, of course, this book is direcEed towards women \,tith young (pre-schooL-age) children. However, all or most of the information and ideas could be applied to a homeschooLing situaEion as wel1. In many cases, things wouLd be easier for homeschooLers with older children itrs someEimes easier for older children to go to work wiEh parents, Eo help ouE at home, and co be left alone for shorE periods. John HoIt felE t.haE many children, even from Ehe age of 8 or so, could Eake care of chemselves aE home several hours a day, or even aLL day, if necessary, in families wiEh a single parent cr in which both Darents must work.

ESSAYS INTO LITERACY by Frank ch-T$'f'IIOO-T-p-53ET. -T-don ' E know

if Frank Smith his heard how home-

schooLers Learn to read, but his collection of essays shows so much understanding about chiLdren and reading

EhaE he might as well have. Insight packs every page cf Ehis cLearly writcen volume.

aithough SmiEh is ostensibly Ealking abouE whaE's been wrong vrith our efforts to teach reading and what we might do Eo make them beEter, his ideas say someEhing much broader about how children learn' Nowhere in

his many discussions does he stray from his basic insistence fhat childgood aE it. ren wanE to learn and are At one poinE he says, I'Children do not learn from being correcEed, but from wanEing to do Ehings Ehe righE way." Much of the wriEing in this book is an eLaboration of this basic cruth. As we listen to Ehe aulhor reflect on the naEure of language, reading insErucEion, Literacy in general (and many of these papers htere crigir.aLly spoken Lectures, 3o they carry the fLavor of human speech and presence) we hear this sentence as a varying echo or refrain. Throughout the book, and in many dif f erent r,,/ays, Smithts explanation of how children learn is simultaneousLy an argument for their skill aE ic' He says,

Children do noE first learn language as an abstracEion or as a "skill" erhich they Ehen emPloy to understand whaE peoPle are saying' They learn language by understand-

ing the purposes Eo r,thich iE is put, Obviously no one can Eell an infant how lairguage works,-or what it can do; children have to find

makinF sen.se-of ic- And this is the wav EIeE-cFTldren learn about the

in general, about everything in their experience - by hypoEhesizing whaE musE be going on, anEicipaEing whaE ,Tight occur, and observing Co see if Ehey are righE. This Eoo is how children learn to read, and SmiEhrs most appeaLing example of Ehis is che sEory of a 3l-year-old boy named MaEthew who, on one Erip Eo a deparEmenc sEore, demonsEraEed how much informaEion children pick up, just from the worLd around them, abouE Ehe function of wriEcen wo?Ld

language. MaEEhew, seeing chaE he

rras

in Ehe shoe deparEment, guessed EhaE a sign said "Shoes." The fact Ehat it acEually said "Footwearr" Smith cLaims, is Less significant Ehan che evidence of MaEthew's awareness that prinE is meanE to convey meaning and his skilI at predicting what a parEicular word oughE to say, The conclusion SmiEh draws here is a clue Eo his LaEer argument against phonics as a method of teachffr-?EEaing. He says, "Fluent readers do noE read words, Ehey read meanings." Decoding a word according to Ehe sounds of the leEEers, he argues, is a sErategy which good readers save for a last resorE, when other methods, such as understanding from context, have failed. I won'E detail his enlire argument here, but it's an interesEing one and a usefui response to advocaEes of workbooks and oEher fragmenEed tasks. AIso interesting Eo homeschooLers is SmiEh's claim Ehat "no convincing evidence exists EhaE there is a critical age for learning Eo read." He dismisses any concern abouErrLate" readers when he says, "Progress in learning Eo read does noE require keeping up wiEh the neighbors." Perhaps Ehis advice from a welL-known academic wiII help convince some "neighbors" of homeschooLing families. After criticizing mosE of the rules by which Eeachers of reading commonly abide, Smith offers one simple rule of his own: "Respond Eo whaE che chiLd is trying to do ' " t^liEhin Ehis very basic piece of advice lies SmiEhrs deeo resDect for Ehe child as scientisE aird diieccor of whaEever learning is going on, Others who share this view should find, in SmiEh's book, much encouragement, information, and helpful argument.

FRIENDLY SCHOOL DISTRICTS

ile are printing a list of school districts that are willingly and happily cooperating with hone schoolers, and who are willing to be listed in G8S as doing so. one reason for such a list: we want to encourage and reas5ure school officials who may be hesitant about approving hone schooling, and let them know that there are other districts enjoying good relationships with their home school'in9 families. Also, famjlies who are willing to move to escape a difficult situation with school officials would have at least some ideas about where to go. l,le wi I I only I i st these school di stricts under the fol lowing conditjons: il ) the filily has to be not just satisfied but pleased with the cooperation the schools ai€-litTng to their home schooling efforts. (2) The schools thenselves have to be pleased with the relationship wjth the family. 13) The fanily has to be happy wjth the jdea asking the schools whether they want to be

of

included in this list. lf they feel that l isting the schools, or askjng the schools if they to be listed, may endanger thejr good present relationship, then they sho!ldn't ask. want

(4) The schools themselves have to be happy about bejng included jn the list. If they are uneasy about it, or fear that it may get then in trouble with someone, we'd rather not subject thef, to that risk. So - jf your district is cooperating with your home schooling, and you would like them to be on this ljst, dsk them, and let us know if they say to 90 ahead, By lhe way, we would also like to list school districts that lould like to help home schooling fanjlies, but have-i6f been able to do so because no fanilies have yet asked then.
