Curriculum of Joy
As a veteran home school mom and a leader in the local home schooling community, I'm often asked "What's the best curriculum for my kids?" My answer? "Seek Joy - everything else will follow."
The Art of Non-Conformity is a guidebook for a joy-based curriculum for adults. It's filled with examples of people who've consciously chosen to live unconventional lives. I gave it to my 18-year-old, I want my husband to read it and I'm adding it to my list of recommended reading for new homeschooling parents. Guillebeau's "Alternative Graduate School Experience" is a must-read for anyone who believes education has to cost a fortune.
Part cheerleader, part tour guide, Guillebeau gives a whole host of practical suggestions for living a non-conformist life. I'm eager to apply his ideas to my OWN life as a singer-songwriter and to share the book with others who are open to looking at the world differently and living a gratifying, joyful life outside-the-box.
