In the "Common ObJectlons to Homeschoollng- chapter of TeachYqtr Own" John Holt lncludes a serles of challengfng questlons that a mother once asked hlm, and hls answers. One questlon ls, "\illll [homeschooled chtldrenl have the opportuntty to ovelcome or do thlngs that they thlnk they don't want to do?'In hls reply, John says, 'If the questlon meâ‚Źrnsl, wlll unschooled chlldren knowwhat lt ls to have to do dlftcult and demandrng thhgs tn order to reach goals they have set for themselves, I would s:ryyes, llfe ls frrll of such requlrements. But thls ls not at all the same thlng as dolng somettrlng, and tn the case of schml usuall5r somethlng stupld and borlng, slrnply because someone else tells you pu'll be punlshed tfyou dont." So many of our soclet5/s notlons about the nature of work and of chlldren, are wrapped up ln that mother's questlon that It's no wonder we contlnue to hear the same concern ln one form or another from people who ask about homeschoollng. School tdes to lmpress upon chlldren the value of dotng what theydon't want to do, but lt nerrcr sleerxr to dl,sttngulsh between the demands of the task ttself and the arbltrary demands of another person, or between goals that cttlldren have set for themselves and goals that someone else has set for them. School doesn't operate as though these dlstlncUons are tmportant, but they are. For thts lssue's Focus, we asked several young GWS readers to wrlte about worklng to meet goals that they have set for themselves, and to tell us about dlftcult or unpleasant tasks that they may have to do as part of achtevtng those goals. Thefr letters show that, tJgfintttw chrrnc, cttlldren can respond to the demands of the work ltself, and notJust to the threat of punlshment or hope of reward. -The pronunclatlon ls dlfrcult,'Apdl Johnson wrltes about learnlng Spanlsh. But because she really wants to learn the language, she keeps pracUctng. 'All of the work ls worth lt," concludes Gtnny Hood after descrlbtng what goes lnto audtttonlng for theatrtcal roles and rehearstng the plays. Her brother Sam wrltes, aboutJolntng a swlm team that turned out to be more difrcult than he had ecpected, 'Although lt would have been eaqr to qutt, I declded not to." Why nof? Because Sam ls determlned to become a llfeguard, and he ls wllltng to do what that task demands of hlm. He doesnt need someone else to prerrent hlm ftom qultflng: ttts own deslre to achleve hts goal does that. After descdbtng how hard she had to work to learn to slght read muslc, KIm Kopel concludes, 'I do thlngs that are dlfrcull or that I really don't lllre, for the sarne reason I do anythlng else: because IVe declded they're lmportant.' If only schools could understand thlst Young people are capable of decldlng what ls tmportant or neceesarlr, and crce tltq ttalue decldd" they are capable of worklng much harder than we tmagtne. Schmls, after falltng to glve chlldren the chancc to declde what ts tmportant to them and to understand the relattonshtp between thelr chosen goal and spectllc tasks. then conclude that chlldren arelazy, no good, unmotlrrated. Llsten to the young people ln thls lssue and you'll see that thls assumpilon couldn't be more unong. Susannah Shefrer

Irlsh homeschoolers harrc Just produced thelr llrst newsletter, &Bholle (at home), whlch we hope wtll untte and streng;then the homeschoollng nrcnement here. Now thatwe are starflng to organlze a horneschooltng group, the full ortent of homeschooling is becomlng apparent and It is clear that lt has been gotng on qulet$ and successfulbr for rnany years. Recently, sonre famllies dectded to see tf there rras any lnterest tn starHng a group, and they put together a newsletter whlch was sent out to about slxty famtltes that were known to be tnterested tn the subJect. One of the maln reasons for puttlng out the newsletter nras concern over posslble changes tn the educadon laws tbat could alTect parents'rlghts to educate thelr

chlldren at home. In lreland, the legal sltuatlon dlffers from that |r the U.S. and Brttatn tn that the Irlsh Consdtuflon r€cognlzee that the famtly ls the rnaln educator of the chlld: Ardcle 42-L: -Ilrc state acknowledges that the prlnary and nahrral educator of the ctrlld fs the famlly and guarantees to respect the lnaltenable rtght and dut5r of parents to provtde, accordlng to their means, for the rellgfous and rnoral, tntellechral, phystcal and soclal educatlon of thetr chtldren.' Arttcle 42-2: 'Parents shall be free to provtde thle educatlon ln thelr own homes or in prlvate schools or ln schools recognlzed or estab[shed by the state.' At the moment there ls no &lucatlon Act as such, although there are a number of acts wtrlch deal wtth the dlfferent areas of educaflon (e.g. VocaUonal Schools Act, Unlverslfles Act). The tnost r€levant act for homeschoolers ts the 1926 School Attendance Act wtrlch cttea varlous reasons why a ctrlld rnay be excused attendancr from school. As urcll as slckness, etc,, lt states tlnt a chtld may be excus€d fr,om school |f

'the ctrlld ts recetvtng sultable elernentary educadon ln some n rner other than by attendlng a naflonal or other suttable school.' Of course'suttable elementar5r educatlon'tsn't deflned and ls open to lnterpretaflon. Responstblllty for enforclng thls Act lles wtth the local School Attendance OIIIcrr or pollce. At present lt seems that most flarnllleg recetve llttle

interference from the authorldes once they

are pracflclrg homescholtng; although a fenr have had problems.

Thts ts the legal sltuaflon as lt stands, but lt may change ln the near fuhrre as the Mlnlster for Educatlon, Mary ORourke, has stated her lntendon to brlng In an EducadonAct sorrr UrE tn 1992-93. Debate on the lssue has already started and ts belng followed wlth tnterest by the

homeschoollng famllles. Sorne famtltes are afratd that the new Act may affect the rights of parents to educatc thetr chlldren at horrr, espectally as sorne of the teachers'

unlons (whose members have hgh levels of unemployrnent) harc dectded that they urculd ltke to dghten thlngs up abtt. Howeru, any nrove to lessen the rlghts of parents u/ould be unconstltutional at the rnornent, and an arficle ofthe Consfltuflon can only be changed by a nattonal referendum. It seems unllkely that parents would vote to have thetr rtghts reduced, but prerrlous referendums on other matters have proved unpredtctable. The sltuatlon is belng nrcnltored by homeschoollng farntltes, who are conslderlng rnaldng a submlaslon to the Mlntster,

outllnlng thelr vlerrs. Ttre proposed &lucadon Act and tts posslble repercusslons nlas one of the toplcs dlecuesed at the flrst ollct"l g.ttogether of lrtsh hornegchoolers thatwas hdd recently tn Co. Clare. Seventeen farrriltee from all over Ireland attended durlng the urcekend - the flrst tlme of rneeilng for many of us, although some vrcre old frlends, Comnon factors seemed to be a relaxed atflhrde about chtldrearlng wtth an emphasts on ctrlld-ccntered learnlng combtned wtth an lnterest tn natural ctrlldblrth, breastfeedtng, etc. It uras an enJoyable tlnre of meettng and sharlng experlerrces and tdeas. Now that contact has been made and frlendstrlps started, hopefully mor€ lFt-togethers wlll follow. Although lt ie not legally enforced, attendance at school s€erns to be pretty much autornadc for nnst chlldren. The reacfion of school-gotng cldldren to horneschooled chlldren usuall5r seems to be, 'Luclry Udngl'and the r€acflon from adulte ls slmilar - 'Good tdea.' My son Patrlcl( ts onlyJust 2, yet tt amazes me honr already so many people refer to trts schooltng. 'He'll be at school before you lorow lt' or 'Ie he tn preechool yet?'

Single-Parent Homeschoolers People often assume, wrongly, that homeschoollng ls lmposslblc for rlngle parents. IFc havc prlnted several letters from rlnglc parents ln the past, and for thls lssue, we asled three of the parents who have bcen on our "Slnglc Parent" resource llst for sonc tlmc to tell us thelr storles.

Wasn't Willing to Stop Homeschooling Fton Eilate McNelI o/


I've been a stngle parent for slx years. Int[ally I managied to stay home by befng onwelfare. I stayed on lt as long as I could talk my tntake worker lnto lettlng me do It. She was very helpful and dtd her best to

work wittr rre. At one polnt the state of Wsconsln satd rve could stay horne wtth our chlldren unfll they were 6, but then they swttched tt to 3. At that tlme my youngest was 3 I /2, my oldest was I I, and the otlrers lrcre 9 and 5. My lntake worker told me tlrat I would now be rcqut€d to get a full-tlmeJob. I e4plalned that I had alr.ady stgned the horneschoollng afndavtt for that year, so t had already rnade an a€r€ernentwtth the state to provtde homesctroollng and lt would be much harder to do that |f I had to get a fulltfrnJob. She talked to her supervlsor and nothtr4 happened, so I gueee thry declded to leave me alone. About ayear and a half o8o tlre state flnally sald I had to ffnd aJob. I harrc worked at ayacht club and ln a gtft shop, and ttrls past surnmer I dfd babysttflng tr my home. We llrrc ln a resort area so there are a lot of famllles here durlng the summer. When I was worldng outstde the home I rehed on my farntly for help wtth the ldds. I have a brother and slster-ln-law who llve nearby and who also teach thea own ldds, so that uras perfecl The younger ldds would spend ttrne wlth thelr couslns wtrlle I worked. By thts tlme, my two oldest had dectded to go to publlc school. When my par,ents morred up to thls area, they helped too. My rnother's an ar6st so the ldds would do lots of art stlrlf wtth her. Now IVe agreed to go |rto the dalry farmlng buslness wtth my parents. I ltrrc on the farm that they own, and I uras ln thls buslness wtth my ex-husband, so I have experlene {'tth tt. The ldds spend sorne tlrrrc ln the barn wlth rrr, helptng out orJust talHng to me. They also spend tlme ln the house by themselrrcs. Thry'll ltsten to muslc and play garne€, or work wtth paste at the ldtchen table. They do a lot of playlng wtth books, too. They're Hndergarten and second gradeage now, and lt's enc.ouragtng to sec hownrcll thry are able to use thelr dme alone. They are also really good at gnbbtng whaterrcr free Ume I harrc.

Growlng Wthout Schoo[ng #84

We do a lotof readtng together, and we tell storles, work on rnath, do other thtngs. I don't flnd that I have to spend serteral

hours a day teachfng. When I flrst becarne a stngle parent I had no ldeawhat I was gotng to do. IJust sald to myself, homeschoollng ls as tmportant as can be, and I'm gotng to ngure out away to do lt erren lf lt's not the w"ay I

thought tt was Sotng to be. I Just wasn't wtlltng to gfve lt up, and I'm really gfad I dtdn't because I see the reeults now ln the uray my older ldds arE able to handlc school. My son tells the younger lilds not to go to sch@l too early, but to be glad that they have thts tlrre at home. I lrarc made extra elforts to flnd other people for the klds sornedmes. lfy son ts reallSr lnterested ln rockets and model planes, and I'm not. My brother, who llves six hours away but vtslts durlng the summer, loves rockets and planes, so I

brought them together.. My brother was thrtlled. He doesn't harrc chlldren of hls own, so he sald, 'Thts tB a chance of a Mettme for rne.' My older daughter ls tnterested tn horses, and I found her a rtdlng tnstmctor who hrrned out to be arrentor for her, who gave her morc than the lessons. Ifs really tmportant to flnd other adults when ldds want them. because one parentJust can't do eveqrthing or be lnterested ln everytlrtng. An lssue for nre ls be|rg fsolated. Ifs been a struggle for nr to ta*e ttrne away from rny lddg and spend tt on myself. Singfe parents harrc to carry that burden of

gutltaboutwanttng to meet the needs of the ktds all the tlrne. We don't have anybody to hand lt olf to. But lf you don't take care of

yoursefi, you won't be able to take care of tlre ktds as well. I've learned to say to tlre ldds, 'IVe gpt to do thls for myself.' I Jolned a chotr, and sometlmea I wlll say, 'I can't do that tonlght, IVe got rehearsal.' They don't argue wtth rne about thls, and I can tell by thelr relrons€ that they're happy I'm gotng out to do thfngs for myself. They don't llke to sce thelr parent draggtng around saylr4, 'I glve you everythtng but I don't get anythlng for myself.' It's really hard on them to have a parent feellng that u/ay, so tt's better for dl of us if I have a couple of thtngs that I do for myself.

They urcnt to school tn ktndeqgarten and flrst grade, and the older one has trted Junlor hfgh and hlgh school for halfa year each, but he dectded to horneschool agaln. Up undl a year and a halfago I earned rrnney by cleantng houses. Now I'm on welfare, and I'm looHng to start a home bustness wtth weavlng and sptnnlng. When I was dotng housccleantng the boys would conr wlth nr, and etther help rc or brlng thelr own work to do. Theyd brlng books or art supplles, whaterrcr they were ln the rnood to nrcrk on that day. Sorrrttnes lt was hard to be lntermpted when they had questlons or wanted to

showme somethtngl but I would tryto rernember that they had to come 8rst. They understood that I had work to do, so th€y qenerallv wouldn't bother rne too much.

We\rc made an elfort to flnd rnale frlends br them so they can have rrrn ln thetr ltrrcs, becausc thafg becomtng more lmportant now as they get older. I also look for other people to help them ln speclllc areas, My older son ls tnterested ln computers and I'm trytng to flnd someone for htm to work wlth on ttrat. My slster ls a spec-tal ed teacher, so she has accegs to nratertals and was able to provtde books, yrcrksheets, and so on when the ldds rlrcr€ younger. She uras very supporttve. At flrst my hmlly wasnt sure about honrcschooltng, but now they see I'm golng to do lt an5nrray, so they rnlght as well help out. People are alnrays armad that I can horreschool as a slr4le parent, but Iuras always so determlned to do tt that I knew I wouta nna auray.

I remember havlng a sttnglng behtnd my eyes and a lump ln my throat as I uratched her passage lnto thts Me tlrat she wanted, but more strongly I felt admlratton for her splrltedness. Ttrts past fall, the thlrd of our flve chlldren, Dan, now 17, took the eame llnd ofstep as trls slsters had taken when he dectded to attend an tnsfltutton to further hls work wtth hts cello. Ttrls tras been the hardest passage for rne to handlerthus far. The ffrst daya were dlffIcult for Dan and for us. Dan was to attend Interlochen Instttute for the Arts as a post-gpaduate, whlch ncant hls course ofstudyurculd notbe geared for graduatton, and tlds meant he could stud5r course€ all related to muslc, wlthout any requtred academlcs.

After dlscusslon wlth scneral pleasant and helpful people tn the admlntstratlve offlcc, Rlchard yras dlrected to the professor of ecologr who ltves on a small fannstead on the edge of the Interlochen campus. Because Dan's breadwlnnlngwork ls tn the 0eld of outdoor leadershlp, tt rras thought that thls partlcular course and professor would be a rratch for Dan. It seernedgood.

The next hole tn the road came when Dan found out the day before hts deparhrr,e that he couldn't talre hfs kayak Interlochen ls on a lake: Dan ls used to a lot of and canoetng tn hts ltfe.

Dan and I have the klnd of relatlonshlp ln whtch our Gellngs about thlngs lead to a mutual s5rmpathy, rather than to calllng on the other's strengfhs.

The v'an had to be left nearty at a garage, whlch meant anottrer trlp to Interlochen on the followlng day. The next day I surprlsed Dan by knocHng on the door of trts room ln Plcasso Hall. From the dark, srnall, sllent room emerged an unhappy looklng Dan. lt uras afternoon, and had he been home he would have been ln hls part ofthe large

room he shares wlth trls slbllngs, etther playlng trls crllo or ltstenlng to cello muslc. Here at thts flne arts lnstthrflon, he was asleepl I felt tears sdnglng but fought hard for control.

I dlscovered Dan had hard$ eaten a thtng stncc Rlchard had left htrn I gave htm tu/o btg sllcee of the black bread Maggle had baked that mornlng and sorne cheese. He seemed a ltttle better after that. Wewalked aome nDne. We met Dan's roomrnate: Dan tntroduced htm carefully to each farnlly rrcmber. He uras an arrogant lad who to work ln the htgh scores he'd made on the SAT tn the ffulst two mlnutcs of conversatlon. My heart sank at the thought ofDan shartng a room wlth thls person for nlne nronths. Dan has never had any trouble betng away from us, desplte hls closeness to the family. Thfs past summer he spent on$ threenreeks of the surnmer at home: the rest of the tlrne he was elther ofr studytng muslc at a strlngs prcgram or runnfng arr outdoor dog trel':klng program wtth Maggle and Ben. But I could tell he dldn'turant to part from us tbls aftemoon at Interlochen, and yet urc had to go. He kept thlnlrfng of things to show us, thlngs to talk about, tn a sort ofdeprees€d fastdon. I thtnk the tnstttuflorralncss of thls place rcally offcentered hlrn I hugged trtm goodbye, as dld Rtchard and hts slbltngs, and urc drorrc off. At thle polnt Rchard took my hand and I broke tnto the tears I d been hoHfng back. I kneq, Rchard nrasnt Celng too cheery about lt elther but when I'm weak, he shores rrrc up, as I do htmwhen he ls tn the rnore nrlnerable mood. ThIs parHcular sepa.raflon liom one of my chlldren was wr,enchlng rne. I asked myself why. My answem to myself: It nras the ilrst ttrrn I had dealt wtth an lnstttutlon tn llfteen years; ttwas aratny, drearyday; Danwas the flrst of my sons to go a\pzry; but most of all, I was seelrqg Dan's struggle. When Brltt had a temperature of lO5 degrees and was dellrlous ln Indta, I heard

of ltoSenntds. When Maggle outon the frozen trall vas trytng deaperate$ to get her dogs acroaa awooden footbrtdge pulltng her sled and hers€lf o\rcr a gully ln a snowstorm, I utosrttttere. But because of that surprtsc r€turn to Interlochen. I saur Dan's sufrerlng; I thlnk I wtsh I hadn't, because I can't protect trtm from lt. He has got to go through ft. As Brltt vnote to mc:

*alo@te of Washlngtrrt

So many people ask mc how my Hds are gofng to be orposed to people of dtlferent backgrounds when thry don t go to school. Thry havc to get out there sonrtlrrr. You can't keep them from the real world.' [As tf a clasgr@m of 2G,lO people

all the sarre age all readlng the sam

of the real world.) At flrst I dtdn't urcrry about lt much; I flgured thryd met ldds at playgrounds and such, and our nelghborhood olfered qutte a dtverstgr. I began worrylng about lt a blt when tt became evldent that my ctrlldren preferred golng to the park ln the rmrnlngwhen ltwasJust about empty. And I must adtntt, I sHll don't enJoy explalntng that erren when there are flfty klds around, elglrt ttrrre out of ten my ctrtldren prefer to talk to adults that happen to be tn the vtclnlty. Age preference dtdn't really bother me, but the fact that they dtdn't seem to be gettlng much expo-

ms on\r thtnHng of rryeelf. I needed

desperately to get out ofthe house and feel a part of a larger urcrld than ry onin four walls. Most of my frlends, at thts polnl had rnoved out of the area. I dldn't harrc arry ctrlldcare around that was afrordable or that I reallywanted to hand orrcr the retrs to. My mother-tn-lau/ dtd occaslonaI$ come and babystt but she ltved too far away for sre to ask her all that often. So I dectded to do volunteerwork. The first thlng I took on naas unrHng at the food co-op. Ttre work maybe wasn't the rrost lnsplrlng, but I got to talk wlth other

rnothers. lvty daughterJotned a playgroup led by a dlfferent rmther each rreek There were farnllles from rnarry atates, countrles, and dlets $rcgetaaan, macroblotlc, omntuorous, etc.) Asyou mtglrt guess, the problem was the urcrd 'led.' I urasn't tnto structurlng pla)rtlme, and our best urceks were the oncswhen so fap rmthers shoured up that the lddg were left to themselves and

It dldn't 'seem worthwtrlle' to structure the tlme. IVly eon, who was almost 3 then, wanted no partof the group and would

comewatch mework, The other tfthg I got ln/olved ln was 'transltton counsellng' for new Rrssian lnilmtgrants. Ttrls uras organlzed through .Jewtsh Famt$ and Ctrtldrens Sendces and we urcr€ the onl5r nonJewtsh famlly I kneq/ of to be lrn ohrcd. Obvlous$ thc Hds were e:rposed to dlfferent languages (Russian, Ytddtsh, and a ltttle Hebrcw) and to dlfrerent customa. An example of ttrls uras that on hot days a roomful of womcn stunp$ rernov€d thelr ehlrts. You don't experlence {or errcn telk about) that tn publlc schools. Ttrere are also other rnore otndous ocamples of exposure that the ktds wouldn't harrc gotten ln school. We urere able to talce aurcekend trlp to Quebec, stayIng the nfght ln Montreal, at a Ume of year

when lt wasn't orrcrnrn wlth tourlsts and

The older ctrtld is grateful for some tlme that she needn't debnd oSolnst the encroachnrnt ofthe younger. I also fnd lt helpful to state clearly my wlsh to be alone at other tlrnes ln as poslflve a way as I can. I tell the ctrlldren I need some unlnternrpted tlrnc to do sorc speclflc task orJust to unrk on my feeltngs. They seem to accept thls better than belng vaguely brushed olf, and they have learned to say that they need alone-flme, too. Even my younger ctrtld wtll say he's gotng for alone-dme when he's on the verge of lostng hls temper. Bccause he has soen nE go to rrry room for the aanne rreasor\ he secs lt as array to cope lnstead of as a punlshrrrnt. He also trandlee the crlsts better If he chooses the tlrne out lnstead of havlng lt lmposcd. I feel that tt ts lmportant to respect whaterrer prlwcy needs the drlldren erpress. I{nowtng that getttng alone-flme ls somettrlng they can do too helps them acceptwhen I need tt. I also notlce that they especlally enJoy tlme I choose to spend wtth them and actMtlee I euggeet tnstead of reluctantly agreelng to when I was tn the mtddle of sornethlrg else. After Ilntshtng somettrlng wlthout hassles or lnternrpflons from thero I gladV dve them my undtvtded attendon and urc all enJoy that mre. Ifurc weren't home togetlrer so much, *= mfght not hanrc learned to talk dtectly to each other about our ttrrr. My husband has the hardest tlme salrlng when he wants alone-flmc. He also ls more apt to be dlsconcerted lf he has flrre to spend wlth one of the ctrtldren and ls told they are dolr4 aornethlqg alone

rlglrt now. We rnade a slgyr for htm to use,

but he felt uncomfortable wlth that too. Ttre Hds llked the tdea and nrade slgns for thelr doorknobs. One slde hae a welcoming rnessage and the other a request for prtvary.

n6rer to want to play alone. When my llfth rras that age, everyone else was ln school or atwork, so ltwasJustme, and Iwasrrcry busy wtth an at-honr dollrnaktng bust-

Wlth the slxth befng so far from the

One thtng I notlced was that lf I uras cooldng or sewlng or gardentng, he was pretty content to play around me, talldng to nr, showtng me thlngs but not dernandlnS rny total attenflon. And tn thes€

sltuauons, I dtdn't mlnd talldng to hlm because I could prettyurcll keep onwtth what I uras dolng. But lf I was urtflng

At one potnt I found rrryself angry and putttng hlm tn hlg room scveral tlrnes a day, and I reallzed I dtdn'turant a house llke that. So, I stopped trytng to do those thrngs tlnt took total attendon when he was awake, Slnce I often fell asleep when he took trts nap or nrcnt to bed, I dldn t get a lot done. We also had hlm sleeplngwtth us and I qras gettfng urcary wlth that. One thtng urc dld was keep hlm ln the same roomwlth us, but move hls rnattress across the room from ours.

About a year tras gone by, and he usually sleeps tn hls ontn bed undl 5 o16 AIUlnow. Another thfngwas that I began to take hour-long walks dally, usually when he rras napplng. .Iust getflng out ofthe house helped.

Sharing Love of Fiber Crafts with Children Sturnon Storlrg (fN) wdtes: I loved the Focus ln GWS *82 on how clrlldren flnd a teacher when they dlscover tn themsclves a passlon for a certaln body of knowledge. It was lnsptrlng to us adults, to make oursclnes more avallable to ldds. I was parflcularly graflned to see that serrcral ldds unnted to leam to knlt, crochet, and sew. I had aluays thought that my fasclnauon wlth all fiber crafts rvas sort ofeccentrlc and rare, erren though flber ts so baslc to hurnan cultures everywhere. Many adults s€em to regard my total preoccupaflon wlth splnnlng, w€avlng, dyelrg, knltEng, feltlng, etc., aa sorrrehow lnapproprlate tn an educated adult tt's an OK hobby, they thlnk, but not a llfe's

work. Errcnwornen seem to see lt as sort of retro, not what hlgtr-ponrcred women of the '9Os should be Into. fMore recently, femtntst thlnlrcrs have redlscovered the rralue of worren's tradldonal contrlbuflons to culture - worrrcn's nurhrrlngrrcrk, women's lil€nuon of hordcrrlhrre, women's art. Qutlts are now femlnlet art. But rnany uromen here are stlll unaurare of thls

change tn thmlang.) But ofcourse ctrlldren arc not as hung up on what's polldcally correct. Recently t was knltdng durlng one of rr5l son's socc€r games, and a llttle glrl came and sat down beelde rrr. After awhlle, she sald, "I thlnk that ts so lnteresdngt" Oh boyt I thought.

So I Aot out a crlochct hook and urc crocheted Iogether for a wtrlle. She operated the thread and I nrorrcd the hook After a wtrlle sorrr other glrls startd uratchlr4 and becomfurg tnterested. After urc nrade one croctreted frtendstrlp bracelet for Mary, the ortdnal flber fr,eak rpe nrade sorne for her stsGrs. Then they rnade some for thernselrrce. I had a good ltttle collecflon of yam scraps tn my bag that they could choose frorn" Tlrey had good taste, lt turned out: they rrere surprtslngly sophtsdcated tn thelr sensttMty to dlllerent yams' colom and textures. After a wtrtle, Mar5r sald tn her shY, almost lnaudtble volce. "I thln& tt urculd be really fun to come over to yourhorrsc and stt on your ltvlng room rug and do thfs aU day."

One of my goals tn Me ts to becorne a Meguard at age 16, I am so I harc three years to butld up my abtltty lerrcl. I knorv lt wlll be hard, but I thfnk tt wtll be worth the work. There are unbeltevable chances for ltGguards. They are h hfCh demand, so they arc almost nerrer out of work. Thetr uages are not bad, elther. I worked on my goal all surnrner. I had plenty of chances, stnce we went to the pool frequently. Then I heard about the YMCA swlm teart the Ptranhas. I stgned up eagerly, belfedng that I would be a falr swlmmer by thelr standards. Then came my flrst practlce. Boy, was I wrongl I was tlre absolute worst swlmrner on the team.

Preparing for Veterinary lVork F)om Ambr Hehbbryer oJ Nofth Catollnrr: One of the neasons that we homeschool ls that we have the freedom to choose our own goals and then work toward them ln our own uray, So many of my frlends who go to school depend on other people to make declslons for them and then to stay dthnr t}le restrlcdons that the other person rnay set. A goal of mlne ls to becrme an equlne (horse) veterlnarlan some day. Though I have rnany cholces for a career, thls one corresponds well wlth my tnterest ln horses, Because of thls, the dLflIculty ofvet school doesn't seem ltke such a huge obstacle. To go to vet school you need a good baclground tn rnathematlcs and sclence. I am current$ teachlng myself algebra- It's nery dlfllcult; I often have to go back and reread secflons ofthe book to make sure that I understand what I'm dotng. La,st year I became confused and got so fri.rstr:ated wtth tt that I ne$ected my work, so I have some catchtr4l up to do now. I'll keep my goal tn mturd, though, and keep worldng toqrards those trtgher levels of math. As for sclence, blologr tsn t a problerr, real}.

Next year I'll be old enough to start taldng a fenr classes at the nearby Isotherrnal communlt5r college. They have a laboratory, so I wll be able to get some experlencr ln chemistry, too.

Using Spanish Tapes l\om Aprll Jofuson


Thts year ls my flrst year tn homeschoolteg and I have dectded that I would llke to learn a forelgn language. French sounds beauflful, but I thtnk that Spantsh wtll take me farther. Slnce nelther of my parents ever took Spantsh tn school, my mom talked to our nelghbor about teachlng me and my brothers, Dale ( I f ) and Kyle (8), Spantsh. It rvould hane been perfect slnce he speaks Spantsh fluently, excrpt he ls very busy addtng on to hts house. We were klnd of on hold undl he flnished hls addtdon, so I dectded to go on myself. Nobody errcr told me that I had to learn a foretgn language. For thls reason, I believe I am leamtng more, because I am enJoytng myself. If I qras attendtng publlc school I would be e:qlected to learna Language and Iwould notbe havtngas much fun. I would probably be bored. My parents have been a lot of help ln gettfng me started. Thry helped rne get my hands on books, tapes, and enen another person to tutor nrc ln Spantsh. The ladywho ts helpteg rne says that I am dolng really well. That ls because I urant to learn tt, not because I am betrg forced to. Some parts of learntng Spanlsh are hard: the pronunciatlon te dtfflcult for me, but IVe b€en gotng over the vowels ard IJust keep pracHclng. Some ofthe tapes are hard to understand, too, and you have to out what they're saylng. But I really want to learn Spantsh, so I don't mtnd dotng these thlngs,

For the last two years I hane been taHng German from a tutor' Ttrls year her class load at the trlgh school nras too btg for her to condnue wlth rrrc prtvatd, In order to condnue studJdng wlth her, I dectded to take German at the trlgh school.

Homeschoolers Push Themselves Flom Latd. IlebtEbryer oJ Nofth Cadhta: I feel that the tdea that horneschoolers have no goale and push thems€lve ls deflnltely r,rcng. I thfnk that homeschoolers have to push themselyes nDre than klds ln school nerrer have to

Sletting Goals Becomes a Habit Ftom Soraft Sndfh (MO): I thlnk setttng goals ts one of thc rrnst tnportant parts of honrechoollng. Take feedlng and carlng for ruy anlmals, for tnstance.

About an hour alter the audlflons we got a phone call asktng me to return for callbackg. Callbacks ur€re easler and had fewer ldds than the ortglnal audldons. About a half an hour later, the theater people called me and asked whether I would be ln Itre Wtzord- I couldn't bellerre ttl My flrst audlflon for a play and I got tnl I was so surprlsed that I could barely stand up.

Deciding That. Sight Reading is Important Flom KIrn Kopl [MO):

last fall I audltloned for St. Louis Ctrlldren's Cholrs and was accepted tn Chorlsters, the thlrd of flrrc cholrs (wtth cholrs four and flve the rnost adrranced). When IJotned SrcC I couldn't stght read and I dtdn't know the flrst thfng about readlng and coungng rhythm. Moet of the other Chorlsters knew as llttle as I dld, so our dtrector, Fled, started us at the very beglnntng. At flrst I dtdn't s€e any rh5rnrc or reason to muslc r€adlng at dl. It seemed so mysterlous and confuslrg to me, and I wasnt rcally lnterested ln ffndfng any pattem or loglc to tt. It Just wasn t that lmportant or lnteresdng to rne, so I dtdn't want to spend a lot of ttrne and energy on lt. I dtdn't mlnd the hard work what I mlndod was the hard work that seemed to be for naught. I guess Fred must have known that qutte a few of us felt that way, because he began to try to ocplaln how tmportant betng able to stght read well was. He told us that tfu/e could stght read well, we wouldn't nraste so much t|rne gotng over our parts, playtng each note over and over a€laln, and so we d hanre more tlrne to spend on Ilne tunlng the muslc. I dectded that was a good reason to learn to stght read, so I started really trylng to understand and becorne better at tt. If Fred sald somethlng was tmportant, I took trls word for tt - I knew I could trust hlm. ,{,^g far as I'm concerned, t}rere are cholr dtrectors, and then there's Fred; he loves muslc, and lt shows tn the nray he dlrects, It meant a lot to rne to have a dlrector who loved what he was dotng, and to know that he achrally enJoyed belng there, dfrecdng and teachtng us. Hls love for muslc was contagtous and tnsptrtngbecause ttwas real - hewasn't pretendtng muslc was fun ln order to trlck us lnto worlidng and dolng what he asked at rehearsals. He showed us, bye:cample and atfltude, that he belteved ln glvtng ercrythfng he had to the thlngs he loved. So lt rvae easy for rrle to learn from hlm - here was sorneone Growlng Wtthout Schmltng #84

t7 whose tdeals I shared, sonreone I could understand and respect. About halfuray tluough the ffrst s€rnester I nnally began to see some serule tn muslc r€adfng and started ptcldng up the baslcs.

At the sarrr ttrne I found myself getdng really annoyed wlth rnany of the other Chorlsters, bccause they wouldn't rncrrprlze thelr muslc or concntratc and ltsten durlng rehearsals. They weren't any better at muslc readlng than they had been at the begtnntng of the sernester, so they *eren t ready to leam rmre, wtrlch meant I couldn t learn more, elther, erren though I uns ready to. I c"onsldered sertously tlre ldea of k5dng out for Concert Cholr (tlre next level) the follmdng semester. Ttre onl5l thlng that kept rrr from setdng up an audlflon rtght then and therewas the knowledgc that tf I uns accepted, I'd no longer harrc Fred as a dkrector. I ffnally worked out a oompromlse wtth myself: Id audtflon for Concert Cholr, and lf I rnade tt, I d then audldon for Chamber Slngers (the level ltrre cholr), whlch Fted dlrected ln addltlon to Chorlsters. I knew I had to lmprone rny stght and rhythm readtng even rnore lf I had any hopes of rnaldng tt tnto elther Concert or Charnber. So rtght after I set up an audlflon, I got out our songbooks and sheet muslc and pracflced slght readlng through them. It was hard work - a lot of thlngs urcre sttll confustng to rne - and I often felt ltke throwtn$ the books (and the ptano) at the wall. At Ilrst I dtdn't seem to bc rnatAng arry progress, wtrlch made lt extremely hard to keep practtclng, but I rnade myself sflck to lt because I knew I had to tf I warrted to nxlve up, By the tlrrr my audldon rolled around a fenrweeks later, Id actually lmprorrcd sorewhat, so I felt satlsfl€d. I knqr I sttll had a lot to learn, but I'd done the best I c.ould tn tlp tlme I had, ard that was all I could do. In the end I was happy I hadn't throunr the ptano at the umll and glven up on slght r€adlng, because I waa accepted tnto both Concert q/dChambcr for the second sercater.

I thlnk I tmpmrrcd my slght readlng lO0l6Just durlng tttat second serneater (erren thougtr I dtdn'twork on lt much at home) because I had so many opportuntdes to slght rcad at rehearsals. But although I learned a lot, I nerrcr fdt completcly sure of \r'hat I d leamed, or confident fn my abtltty to use lt. So thfs serrcster I dectded to take a muslc rcadfng class because I ura,s tlred of belng muslcal$r llllterate. I uranted to be able to stght r€ad sell enough so that I could get rtlythsrs rlght th€ flrst urrrc I read through a song, and *vuldn't harrc to keep referrtng back to the plano for pttches. I couldn't reach that goal mrHng on my own - there are too rnany thtrlgs tlnt are extrercly hard to understand unlesa someone ocplalns the logtc and method behlnd them. So I decrded that betng able to slght rcad well was trnportant errough to put nryself through the grlnd of a one-and-a-half-hour weeldy class. Besldes, Fbed was teachtng the class, so tt couldn't be that bad.

A fery mlnutes tnto the flrst class I found - to my complete surprls€ - that I ullas achralty havlng fun, and by the end of tlre class I wae looldng fonilard to the next one, I'm learntag so much from the class, and I r€ally enJoy the challenge mustc readtng gfves me. I can see the logtc to lt now. It feels good to knowwhafs gotng on, and to be able to r€ad mustc falrly well now. It dso makes cholr a lot easler for me - as Fbed pmmlsed, I can spend a lot more flrne on fine hrnlng thc muslc. Readtng muslc sflll lsn't a br€eze for nrc by any rrcans. There are nrany tlfiles when I'm sick of the extra trassle and c/ork lt takes, and would ratlrerJust forgst about the classe or anJrthlng havlng to do wtth readlng muslc. But I don't qutt because I lorrc sfngfng and cholr, and I can s€e that bclng able to rcad muslc 18 rcry tmportarrt to ry Etngtng and that tt enables me to ghrc more as a membcr of tlre cholr. It's ltke wtth anyttilng else IVe donc there's always a part that I'm not tbrtUed about and *ould llkc to Just learrc out tf I could. Ttrls ls a cholcc l\rc made: to spend my tlrc on muetc readlng ren though there are other thlngs I tlke to do better, becausc I eventuallSr want to slng fn an adult choral group. lt q/as an easy cholce to make, becausc I could s€€ for rryB€lf why belr4 able to r€ad muslc was fmportant, and that there were real consequenes that camc wtth not befui1g abb to read muslc.

I located buttona on the slde of the hom to change the volunr, to transpose the scale, and errcn to change the type of lnstrument (tt pl,ays a flute, a sax, a tnrmpet, a synth-reed, a clartnet and an oboe). I etart€d out playtng etmple eong. Wh€n I ggt to tltlngs t couldn't flgure out from the rnanuals, I aeked rry uncle. He declded to tcach nE rpne. He had rrr playtng bluea aonE, and I really ltked It.

Wasn't lt had to gtve up the career you had planned on, though? I thtnk a lot ofpeople sLnp$ flnd lt hard to change course even lfthey begln to doubt the @urse they're on. SSI:

GL: Yes. I read.Iohn Holt and uras an

tnventory of rry own past. I dtd u,ell tn school, but I d nerrer thought beyond the gradea thernsehres. Id nerrcr thouglrt aboutwhat Id gotten out ofschool. I assumed that slnce I d gotten unstly As, that rneant that I uns educated. But when I stopped and thoughL 'What dld I actually leam tn sdlool,'I cam up empty handed. I dldn't feel ltke I'd learned to r€ad or wrlte ln school, for enmple. I learned to r€ad when I was 3 wlth my rnotlrer, and I have strcng rremorles of reachers tn grade school complalntng that I r€ad too much, read when I uras supposed to be dolng sorrrtlrtng else, So school cnrghed a lot of that for me. And the other thlngs that I felt llke I kne{r how to do, I hadn't leamed tn school clther - muslc, dance, outdor stuff. Iuras ov€rwhelmed by thewasted Urne tn rry ourn llfe. 3E: When you began the tun-year teachtngJob, dtd you hope to put any of tlrese ns ldeas and realzatlons lnto pracflce there?

GL: I really dld have a bt of hope, becaus€ the sdrool waE sroll, and there was a very creaffrrc, hurnanltarl,an feelfng to lL go I thought a lot of 6ood thtngs could happen there. I sflll do belterrc tlrat a lot of

I thtnk the prognmuras a suocess for the people who were reall5r dr:awn to readfrg and rr'rldng, because lt gave them credtt, and ttme, for what they dld genutne$ vrant to do. But that was only about one tn five lidds. 8S: When dtd the turnlng potnt come for you, then? GL: I descrtbe thls tn my book one eyenlr4l, when we were tn Washlngton, D.C. on a fleld trtp, the Hds got angrtly scolded because they weren't paldng attenflon to a borlng lecture on how a blll becomes a }aw,

and suddenly the lnJustlce of tt all

onerryhelmed me. It was Just a feeltng of,

'Enough is enougfu' Before thls lncldent I had occaslonally alluded to homeschoollng wlth the ktds I taughl If they sald, 'I hate school,'I uould say, 'Well, you know, you don't luue to go,'and theywould say, 'Of coursewe

do, otherwtse urc1l be dropouts, qrc'll be fallures,' or theyd say, 'Ifs legally rcqutred.' I urould start to say, 'No, lt tsnt, rea$r,'but then I would back offbecausc I *ould feel tbat I uras getttng lrto sorncthlng I shouldn't be getdng tnto, professtonally spealdn& After the D.C. tnc'tdent, thougb, I began to feel rnore strongly that teenagers should know what thelr opflons are. I dtdn'trrnnt to say, Tou shouldget out of echol.'but I wanted them to know that ltc,as posslble, and I wanted them to know enough about lt so that tt realf wouldJeet posElble to thern That's when I got the tdea for the book. S8: As you weFe begtnntng to learn about homeschoolng; were there any thlngis you were concerned or skepflcal about?

GL: At flrst I rryas a llttle concemed about the Late readere I read about Just becauseIwaB anearly reader and maybe had a preJudle that there were some thlngs you learn better at early agea. I guess I thought there nrtght be eome car€leasnegs ln homeschoollng. But I don't feel thts way anymore. Ifs clear to rre that not only can people learn to read at arry age, but also that fn tnany oanes people benejtftoa

waltlng. I also uprrted about the tssue of people protecflng thetr Hds from knowlcdge that they thoughtyras harrnful, ard I admtt that I gttll do havc some dlscomfort wtth thlE, but no more dlscomfort than I trarrc wlth the school eyatem. 88: Wtrat madeyou declde to focus on teenagers? GL: I had alrays been tntereeted ln teenagera, whfch is wtry I

rcrldng wlth

l9 taught mtddle school tn the frst place. I also thought teenagera uould be rrpre

b pelfixdas old enough to make declslons on thelr own. I thlnh younger Hds are perfedly capable of maldng declslone, too, as long as they have the support they need, but I dtdn't thlnk the general publlc urculd recelrrc a book ltlc ttrts dtlected toward younger Hde as well as they mtght recctrrc a book dh'ected toward older ldds. llkely to

you thtnk there are epecl8c trs bad for teenagers, Hnd of as a subset of the ways that tfs bad ln SSI: Do

ways that school general?

GL: I thfnk adolescenct ls an espectally powerful tlme of llfe whlch ln other cultures ts recognlzed as a dme ofvlslon, a tlrne of lmportant transforrnadon. In our cultur,e nrc eort of recogntzc that but also block lt by rnahng tcenagers stt sdll and do the exact sarrr thtng as thelr peers, tnstead ofencouragfng them to orplore and dellne themselves as tndMduals. SS: One uray tn whlchyourbook ls

dlfrerent from GWS ts that tfs prlrnartly

addresslng ldds who are ln school and are consldertng leavhS, People often say tn GWS that homeschoollng ls harder for ldds who harrc been ln school for a long tlme, and I wonder fyou thought about tlre pardcul,ar challengee that the ldde you were addressfng umuld have to face tn

homeschoollng. GL: Yes, tturas apparent to rne that ldds who had nerrcrbeen to school had so much less to dealwtth ttran Hds who had spent a long ttme tn school - less gullt, fewer unnecessary complexes. I trted to address thts tn the chapter called The Importance of the Vacaflon,' whlch talks about the fact that fyouVe spent a lot of tlme ln school, you wlll need to hanre a

translHonal tlme tn wtrlch you essendall5r deschool your head. I thlnk tlrts ts really cmclal and that lf people don't recognlze the necd for thtg, they won't harrc as guccesafu I an experlcncc. In a uray I was r€ally taldng to rryself ln the booh to the person I rras fn hlgh school, knowlng that I would harrc needed

thls ldnd of lnformaflon and that ldnd of reassurance, but that I upuld have cranted to homeschool.

SS: Yes, I felt lt was a r€al strength of thebook thatyou dldnt hurry oagt the oonoerns Hds ln school wtll be ltkely to have about horneschoollng. As commltted as youVe beconr to hormchoollng, you haven't foqgotten all the questtons and doubts that these ldda may harrc, and you address each one. GL: The blggBet concem I anflc'tpated uras that hds *!uld feel that tf they qult

school they uould etmply

faI fn soctety, fn

Me - that werythlng would be over. One day when I rras sflll teachtng, I tok my seven advlsees out to breakfast, andJust casua$t I asked, 'If you glrqrs dtdn't have to go to school, would you?' Slx out of s€\ren sald theywould. When I asked why, they sald, -To get a good Job' or -To get lnto college.'When the one glrl sald she wouldn't go, e\rcryone elee looked at her

Gro\rlng Wthout SchooUng #84

dlsapprovtngly and asked why not, and she satd, 'Becaus€ I hate tL' I eald, "$rell, what would you do lnstead?'She answered, 'Rde horses." later, when I sent out noflccs about the book to my former students, she ordered tt rtght away. I lmaglned that the next concern urculd be about frlends, and I addressed

to do tt. So I uns aware that ldds rntght uorry about thls, and a lot ofthe suggestlons ln the book are thtngs that are out ln the world. Also, so rnarry of tlre homeschoolers that I heard from eatd that they got along wtth thetr parents rrcry urcll, that horneschoo[ng trtprolrd thelr relatlon-

horneschoolen ls the 8€cffon on 'unschoollng' all the academlc subJects. How were you able to learn so much about what all ttrose subJects are really about? GL: Itwas hard,

butl feltltwas

lmportant. Wlth some of the subJects En$tsh and the arts - I had some solld Inound. I felt that I kneqrwhat thosc Jubtcts vrcre ltkc ln the world outgldc of

sctrbt. But for somc of the others,


sclence and nrath, I dtd a lot of research,

and relled on ftends' knowledge. It was a blg educaflon for rrre to llnd all the material for those chapten, probably a hundred flmeg nnre valuable than ruy hlgh achool educaflon. - I wanted to convey that echool doesn't own thoee sublecta. Errcn |f sclrool has to sonrc degrec d;trned them, the dlsdplrnes are only unya of looHng at the world, and the world ta not echool. So there are nrany npne ways to wor* wtth thosc subJects tlran thc ways that the lnrsdtudon happens to work wlth them. 33: Why dtd you dermte so muchsPace

worthwhlle unrlr? brtngs up the lssue of needlng Parental approval, though. One dlflerence betrcen droppfng out and horneschoollng ts that for homeadroollng, you need your parents' support and lnnolverrrnt - for the legal aspcct of lt at the rrcry least. CrL: Yeg, I don't knouryet whether tlre chapter I *rrote about getdntyour Parents' support and the cbapter that I addresEed to parentE, wlll bc enough to help a teenager convlnce reluctant parenta that horrechooltng ts OK So often tn horneschoollng ltteratu€ I conr across dlscusslons about parents' rtghts, meanlng as opposed to states'rfghts, and I'mall for that. But then there's the lssue of ctrlldren's rlghts. I do thlnk teettaSlerg should have more autonomy, more legal rlghts, mre ponrcr to make dectalong about thelr own ltves. So thls is a touchy lssue. Maybe sonrc r€adero wtll be offended by my book because thry wtll feel tt undercuts parents' authorl$t.

8g: What about lilde who feel that they don't get along wlth thelr parente

pardcularly well? They mlght thlnk honrechoollng rneans that they have to be horrr all day wtth thelr parents, or have to do what thelr parents tell them. GL: I try to stress tn the book that not belng at school doesn t nmn you have to be at home, that there are rnanry ways to be out ln the world. IfI as a teenager had heard of horneechootng and thought of lt only fn terms of staylng horre and havtng rrry parents teach rne, I ctouldn't have nranted

GL: An tmportant reason that horrrschoollng can bc good for tccnagers ls that they're r€ady to contrlbute to the rorld, and |f you don't let pcople contrlbutc when they're ready, you're onlY blocHng thcm and encouraelng them to be ln gangs or do somethlng horrlble because they can't do aourthlng good.

86: I'm tnteregted tn the resPonaes you got to the survey tbatyou sent to homeschooltng tcenagers. Was there anythtng that surprtsed you? GL: The comnrnt about getttng along urcll wlth one's parents, wltlch canrc up agatn and agaln. I ltked tt, but a part of rre was a llttle nervoug about lt bccauge I thought that teenagers who cIErc tn echool

and who had a atereotSplcally dilncuh relattonetrlp wlth thelr parente mlght not relate to tlroec comments. I thought sch@led teenagert mlght dlsrntss the horneschoolerB as a bunctr ofgoodlegoodles. But lt rlas char that manJr of the

horschoole$ alfurtd Orclr good famlly reladonslrlpe to horcschoollng tn an atrnoephere of ruet and Hom. So I felt I couli offer some hope to Potcnual homeschoolers - alter all, rmst peoplc uronf to get dong wlth thetr parents. 88: What s€cm to be the igsues ln

JOHN HOLT'S BOOK AND MUSIC STORE The Kid's Guide to Social Action by Barbara A. Lewis #1602 $14.95 Do you ever feel that you can't make a differerrce in the world? That no one will ever listen to you and your ideas because you'rejust a kid? Tlw Kid's Guide to Social Action is the book fm you! Every kid (and maybe every adult) should own a copy. It's one of the best resources I've ever come &ross. It tells you literdly all you need o lnow to become politically and socially active. As smn as I started flipping through my review copy of the book, I decided that I wanted it forkeeps. It is forkids who want to do things that only aduls usually do. Kids who read and use it will get ttreir foot in the door of the adult world. The book is filled with case hisories of kids who made people in power ake notice of their important concerns. All of the kids are just normal, everyday kids like you and me. They leamed how o petition and lobby and get something really necessary done to help their community, state, and sometimes the whole nation. The book gives examples and word-for-word instnrctions about how to write to your political leaden ard local newspapers, how to brainstorm ideas, how to start your own watchdog group for your community, how to get TV coverage, and mrch, much more.It is jam-packed full of ideas. In the back of ttre book are forms to use for writing up petitions, surveys, interviews, grant applications, proposals, etc. If you're interested in learning how to tafte action, whether it be building safe playgrounds u stopping a war, you're going to love this book and want it for your own.

In my experience, most adults do not have any idea how to go about making their voices heard in goverilnent. Over the years, through our Homeschoolers for Peace newsleEer, we've received scores of letters from people who want o be involved in peace, justice, and environmental issues but just don't lnow what Eo do o help. This book is the most compretrensive tool ['ve eyer seen. In clear and simple terms Barbara I-ewis explains how the government operates at its various levels. How proposals become bills and how bills become laws makes fascinating reading when you're trrcing it ttnough the experience of a bunch ofkids trying to solve a pressing problern, rather than

through a boring government textbook Barbara Lewis has incredible respect for kids, which comes through in her every suggestion. This is not the kind of book yorn kids will throw down in iniatim because it tatks down o them. Instea4 the author inspires kids toward practical application of her ideas. As she says, "You have nothing to lose and everything to gain frrom the exper:ience." What a way for kids to leam that our govemment is really run by the people. The author makes it clear that kids don't have to feel responsible for solving all the wmld's problems while they're still kids, but whatever small difference they make will empower them forever. We in the homeschmling community could put this book to good use, learning how to get positive media coverage and lobby ourepresentatives to get liberal laws. But most of all, providing our children with the tools and resources !o tate charge of heir own lives and their own world is one of the greatest gifts we can give them. I srongly recommend this book to every person who cares about children and suppcts their

This is a story from Everyday l-owfor Young Citizens,and the book explains the law's answer to each of these questions.

treaure hunt once again.

tvlany of the sinrations in the book take place in school, which of coune is common in bmks that are meant for a student audience. But I dqr't think this will bother homeschoolers very much, because so often the schml sihntions have elements that could exist anywhere, and the underlying principles are compelling enough o be worth ttrinking about no matter what the context. Fc example, one scenario has to do with students who plan to wear arnrbards o schml to show their suppct for peace and nucler disarmament. Hearing of the plan, the principal makes a nrle forbidding shdents to wear armbands, but these students wear them anyway. The First Amendment issues that arise here - especially when the surdents ae suspended for wearing their armbands - can apply to so many situations that I didn't feel I was reading about something ttnt was strictly a schml issue. (There lear one scenario about which I could clearly imagine homeschmlers disagreeing with the law - the question of whetherkids who are not in school arc autornatically suqpect!) Often the book refers o acrual cases which serve as

precedens for the law's interpretation of a particular situation, and includes the full ciations. It's nice to see ttut the writen of the bookrespect their young readers enough to include tlnt sort of informuion. Wi0r it there, anyone who becomes seriously interested in the law can pursue the interest firtherby looking up the cases o which the book refers. Even if young readers don't do this right away, they may find tlnt the case names or the legal terms feel familiar when they oome across them at some liatertime. The book includes suggested activities u the end ofeach section, and, as with all such activities, they probably lose ttrcir apeal quickly if they are made mandaory and followed to the letter, but in fact several of them lmk interesting and families might find that some of them - like the role-playtng and the mock rials - are truly fun to do together. The book's title remfuds us that children are citizens, and therefore have as much right as anyone to evaluate the laws of the land - to consider which ones apply !o sihrations in their own lives, to argrrc over whether they are ruly jtst, and so on. Taken in this spirit, Ev eryday Law for Yowg Citizens makes a good companion aTlw Kid's Guidc to Social Actbn Both are about Susannah Sheffer being a real part of the serious adult world.


Unpuzzling Your Past is the most comprehensive guide o genealogy I have ever come ircross. The book is wriEen for the beginning genealogist, but it is also a wonderful addition to an e:rperierrced researclrc'r's library. Navigating you through an adventure in time, Ms. Croom describes numerous sources of information and how to get to them. She talks about family, local, staie, and federal sources and includes a national listing of hisorical libraries and archives. [f you're planning a rip to your ancestor's homelown, the chapter on local sources is trlpful. IV[s. Croom gives advice on researching in courthouses, graveyards, churches, and libraries. Another important aspect of family history and often the most fascinating one is interviewing olderrelatives about their lives. Ms. Croom writes extensively on this, including liss of questions and tips on conducting an interview. The chapter I use most is titled,'"!Vhere Do I Lo* fa That?" It brings ogether all the sources of information, providing answers to qpecific questiors. Fa example, if you're lmking for your geat-grandmother's birthdate, jrst check under birthdatâ&#x201A;Źs, and there's a list of places you can look. At the back, there are twenty different fcms !o help you organize your research, ready

o be photocqied.

Ms. Croonr shares herown experience with family hisory throughout the book, getting you excited and ready !o start digging. UnpwzlingYour Past is a real gold mine. - MikaPerrine

It's 1943 in Copenhagen, and for three yean there have been cruel Nazi soldiers on every corner, tqking gyer the lives of everyone in Denmark. The Nazis decide the Jews must be

collected and put into concentration camps. Annemarie Johansen realizes with horror that her best friend, Ellen Rosen, is a Jew. The Johansens hide Ellen from the Nazis, pretending she's a member of the family. That night, the soldiers come pounding on their dmr, suspicious at not having found the Rosens home. The next day the Johansens and Ellen take the rain o say at Annemarie's uncle's house in the country where they will be safe for alittle while @llen's Frents are hiding somewhere else). Soon, the Rosens and many otrer escaping Jews must make the final joumey across tlrc lvat€r to freedom in Sweden, a journey that cannot be completed unless Annemarie risks her life to bring a vital packet to her uncle. The sory is so real and suspenseful, it is impossible to put down.I have always avoided histry, finding detailed information and specilic datas boring. Reading ttris book really opened my eyes, and I realized that history can be all Dztboring! It was amazing to think that people actually went through these experiences. Some biographies make you feel like you're lmking through a window at the person, but Iois Lowry is such a descriptive writer, I felt likel was Annemarie. This book is a real nail-biter!

lnew about the things in the museums, how many books I'd read about Eskimos or [nuits, or how many lifeless dioramas I pondered over,I never felt I could create a picnre of the Eskimos' lives in my head, like I can picure the life of my family and the people around me. When I first read Once Upon an Eskinu Tittu , the stry of an Eskimo family living in the vill4ge of Rocky Point, Alaska, only then did I feel as if I knew the Eskimos. The book gives one of the bast pictures of Eskimo life I have ever encountered (and probably ever will). It is a rue story sold by a woman known locally in Fairbu*s as "Grandma Trrcker." ln 1967, when she was 109 yers old, strc told her daughter Edna Wilder of the year 1868 when she was a l0-year-old girl living at Rocky Point As interesting as Grandma Tucker may be (she didn't die until she was estimated to be 121), her sory of Eskimo family life on the beaches and andra of Alaska before the white man came is a valuable and scientific

narrative, as well as an entertaining sory. The book serves as a record of the stories ard sonp told by her people, as well as a detailed accormt of the animals ftey hunted and the methods and tools they used. In clear and urcluttered text, the book shows that ttre Eskimos lived differently from the way some people imagine, especially those who are familiar with the cartoon-type Eskimos who live in an igloo in the middle

of nowhqe with penguins waddling all around. The book shows an Eskimo family !o be much like a homeschooling one: the children helping tlre parents in the collecting of food - frorn hunting seals to picking benies - and the parmts always answering their children's questions. Nedercook appears to be a child who leams frorn naffie as well as from the old people of her village, and it is to her that her father tells the stories that were meant to be passed down the generations. Nedercook is a very bright, energetic girl who huns (there were no restrictions against women and girls hunting, and Nedercook was praised and encouraged by everyone) and joins in all the family's projecs, always willing !o learn how to cook and hunt and dance and tell the stories. The Eskimos of Rocky Point lived in underground houses called innes, not in iglms, and much of the book is set in the summertime when the days are long and there is no snow. The book is filled with accounts of many different kinds of animals, from mice ard stuews to beluga and killer whales. And it tells of the holidays and festivals in the village of Rocky Point, such as the day before the fint winter snow when all the chil&en go from house to house (inne o inne!) with wmden plates, collecting bits of frsh and berrie.s - lgtttcenurry Eskimo trickor-treating. Although this book is of good use !o som@ne who is studying Eskimo life and culture, it is also a beautiful sory and very well-written, and would make an excellent book to read aloud or for kids o read by themselves. Edna Wilder's illustrations are very welldrawn and complement the story. Anne Brosnan
