Parent Powered!(Spring 2018)
Group learning lets students exchange ideas and absorb new perspectives, hone communication and listening skills, delve into new interests, and build on the shared energy of cooperative enterprise. No wonder so many parents are incorporating it into their homeschooling! Check out this edition of Living Education to find out how you might bring the rich benefits of cooperative learning to your family.

Roots: Place-based Education (Fall 2017)
What gives you a sense of place? What does it mean to have a sense of place? this issue explores the value of place-based education. When we use the resources all around us—environmental, cultural, community, and human—we build in our students a stronger sense of themselves and their place in the world.

Flow (Spring 2017)
Flow brings to mind an athlete, artist, or musician who is totally focused and performing optimally. Flow can also relate to how the seasons flow into one another, or how the phases of our lives (or our careers) flow from one to the next. Flow is seen in the stages of parenting, and the relationships between family members. Read about what “getting in the flow” of teaching, learning, and living means to several guest authors.


Submissions from homeschooling and homeschool-minded parents, educators, administrators, and students are welcome. Please view past issues of Living Education to get a feel for our audience and content. We are especially interested in articles that highlight unique and innovative paths that the educational journey can take. ~DeeDee Hughes, Managing Editor
