Teach your own The indispensable guide to living and learning with children at home

John Caldwell Holt, 1923-1985

Book - 2021

"The classic guide to teaching children at home for a new generation of homeschooling parents. In 2019, there were more than two million children being homeschooled. That number doubled during the pandemic and is now likely to continue increasing as more parents worry that school might not be the best place for their children to learn and grow. Teach Your Own helped launch the homeschooling movement; now, its timeless and revolutionary message of recognizing the ways children come to understand the world has been updated for today's environment."--Amazon.com.
