Books for Radical Unschooling
Books about unschooling, learning and mindful parenting.
John Holt books
John Holt coined the term unschooling. He began researching what helps and hinders learning with an eye towards creating better schools. He eventually realized schools weren't interested in the changes needed to support children's learning. He then turned to supporting homeschooling parents who wanted to help their children learn and not just bring school home. If you read them in order you can see the evolution of his thinking.
Especially for new unschoolers is the free Exploring Unschooling download. It's an introductory series of short articles that prompt you to think in new ways about learning. They're short but resist the urge to fly through them. Give each a few days to settle in and change how you see the world.
Titles are also available individually.
