A new school year is a lot like New Year's Day; it offers the chance to wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start, the chance to move ahead in new and productive ways and the chance to work harder and do better than you did the year before. If you've made a new school year "resolution" to help your child succeed in school this fall, you'll need to some homework. Here is a new book to put in your backpack before the first bell rings.
"...In Guerilla Learning: How to Give Your Kids a Real Education With or Without School Grace Llewellyn and Amy Silver focus on homeschooling, or education outside the traditional classroom, but they too contend that when adults embrace life with wonder and excitement, the children observing them as role models will be more likely to as well. Guerilla Learning means "taking responsibility for your own education" and supporting your children as they learn to do the same." (Linda Stankard, BookPage, August 2001)

Llewellyn, a lecturer on the subject of home schooling and author of the classic Teenage Liberation Handbook, who teaches parenting workshops, have come together to write this how-to book for parents who want to become more involved in their children's education--whether through home schooling or by supplementing traditional instruction. The authors offer five fundamental principles--opportunity, timing, freedom, interest, and support--that, they claim, will transform the way we relate to our children and greatly assist them in growing up to be joyful, passionate creators. Useful for parents and teachers alike, this valuable book closely examines how young people learn and illuminates its practical advice with many stories that make for both insightful and enjoyable learning. Whatever schooling venue parents choose, this book will help them instill a lifelong love of learning in their children. For large public and school libraries. --Samuel T. Huang, Univ. of Arizona, Tucson (Library Journal, September 2001)

"One of the most important books yet written on education and our current school-child crisis." (Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of Magical Child)

" is a good, calming read..." (Adoption Today, April 2002)


"A big-hearted book of important ideas. Be prepared to have your eyes opened to secrets the classroom hasn't learned!" (John Taylor Gatto, author, The Underground History of American Education

"Guerrilla Learning takes embattled parents out of the trenches where they've been all too often waging a frustrating war against antiquated school methods, and empowers them with skillful tools to help their kids develop their natural genius and engage in learning at its best: through inquiry, enthusiasm, and passionate engagement with self, others, and the world." (Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D., author of Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom, Awakening Your Child's Natural Genius, In Their Own Way, and The Myth of the A.D.D. Child)

"One of the most important books yet written on education and our current school-child crisis. Written with a clarity and simplicity that makes it available to any and all parents, it is a delight to read and remarkably informative." (Joseph Chilton Pearce, author, Magical Child and Evolution's End: Claiming the Potential of Our Intelligence)

HASH(0xa1982cd8) von 5 Sternen Real learning despite school 11. Januar 2002
Von Paul Lappen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
School is a place where young people are fed all sorts of meaningless information and forced to give it back on equally meaningless tests. This book aims to change that.
The authors show how parents can help their children can get a real education by helping the child find something about which they are interested, and proceed from there. The process includes five phases:
OPPORTUNITY-Don't just expose your kids to life's possibilities (arts, science, history, community, etc.) without overdoing it, the parent should also stay passionate and involved in learning. The enthusiasm will be contagious.
TIMING-If your child is not progressing according to some school bureaucrat's schedule, don't panic. Not every child learns at the same speed. Early bloomers may need extra stimulation to keep them interested. Late bloomers may simply need time and extra help.
INTEREST-Honor your child's passions, even if it something of which you disapprove. Children are her to grow into the best person they can be, not what the parent or anyone else thinks they should be. Also know when to back off.
FREEDOM-Give the child the chance to take on projects and solve problems. Make it clear that promises are expected to be kept, and also make clear the consequnces for broken promises.
SUPPORT-Be there for your kids. Supporting children does not equal martyrdom. Check to see how much support they need or want. Make sure their goals stay theirs. Well-being is most important.
I learned a lot from this book. It easily reaches the level of Highly Recommended, especially for any parent whose child is having problems in school.

HASH(0xa41e60d8) von 5 Sternen "Guerrilla Learning" celebrates loving life and learning 9. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
While the book is about HOW your child(ren) can begin to love life and learning, whether enrolled in school or not, loving learning is presented in a much larger context: transforming your family relationships so that they themselves are based on love, trust, responsibility, and the love of learning. The authors lay out the characteristics of a child who is uninspired in or has been "turned off" by school. Because loving to learn develops in a family context, adult readers are asked to consider their own experiences as children when their own expressions of creativity were thwarted or interrupted. They are even encouraged to resume their own love-of-learning project. In five chapters, adults are quietly introduced to what it takes to support their childrens' innate curiosity and love of learning. The book does not preach, cajole, or seek to proselytize. Instead, it "merely" lays out some options for the characteristics of family life in which it is asserted that children learn and grow and love it. The book is beautifully written and some of the vignettes of real families taking a stand for their childrens' love of life and learning are inspirational. Finally, the authors say something important about the "standards" movement sweeping the country's schools: the tests which are implementing that movement have little or nothing to do with your kid's education. Of course, they, the authors, have a special definition of education and ask the reader to consider the schools' definitions. The pages of the book are poorly formatted, a matter I hope the publisher will correct in subsequent editions.

HASH(0xa1a5dc9c) von 5 Sternen Beautifully written ... for anyone with kids 22. Juni 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"This book helped me relax and do less about my kid--less worrying, less trying to cram information into him when he wasn't responding as I wanted him to. Using the approaches recommended by Llewellyn and Silver, I now have fun observing my little boy, guiding him gently, and enjoying his forays into the world as he explores and learns on his own."

HASH(0xa1dcd3cc) von 5 Sternen Expected More But Not Disappointed 4. März 2006
Von JCB - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Like someone else said, I read this because we homeschool. I had heard what a great book this was but when I got it I was honestly a little disappointed. I'm sure if my kids were still in public school it would have been more useful but it just wasn't any help to us as homeschoolers/unschoolers.

I'd still recommend it to people who are disenchanted with the public school system but I know now not to recommend it so much to my fellow homeschoolers.

HASH(0xa197a174) von 5 Sternen Something Amiss in the Classroom? 16. Juni 2002
Von J.W.K - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
For most of us who grew up inside a public educational institution, it is difficult to imagine alternatives. Indeed, it may difficult to imagine anything at all. After twelve (in my case 19) years of absract inundation, most of us have lost the trees in a forest of abstractions. We inhabit a vacuous matrix of unispired, cynical defeatism, where teachers can't level with us as human beings and test questions bear no resemblance to reality. Until graduation day, that is. Then the world opens up before us, free for the plunder of active, self-interested engagement. What if we had never left that world from start? What if from birth to grave our lives were naturally interesting and piquant? What if we didn't educate ourselves for the test, but instead focused on the context of our life and followed our natural curiosities? Einstein (a college drop-out) certainly thought this was the right approach to education: "It is in fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet strangle the holy curiosity of inquiry." This book a refreshing, imaginative, and likewise extremely practical guide to context-driven education. All my life I had been vexed with the notion that contemporary education is utterly wrongheaded and thwarting, but until now I had never had the language or facts to back up my intuitive, gut feeling. Whether you are thinking of making the great experimental leap and homeschooling your kids, or whether you simply want to better understand how to get the most out of your local educational institution, this book is essential. Although you cannot relive the wasted years, it will send you in the right direction for future learning, and help you give your children an education that will truly unlock their deepest potential. Isn't that what education is supposed to be about: unlocking our native potential and stimulating genuine growth? With this book the relationship between information and the world becomes transparent again, as it should have been from the very beginning.
