I’m going to preface this entire post by saying I am very much a novice at Interest-led learning. I’ve dabbled in it throughout our 8 years of homeschooling, but I’ve never been able to deep dive into this magical idea. Part of my hesitance is that my kids are very much like the husband and me – many interests but no real passion. The kids have never shown great interest in anything specific. The second reason I’m hesitant is that it is difficult to let go of the idea that certain subjects need to be taught with purpose. It’s difficult to fathom that my kids will be well-equipped to successfully adult if I don’t drill the math facts and make them diagram sentences.
So, how do I expect to discuss this?
