Ask Sam about the Spring 2020 Group Sessions. See if they are a good fit for you.
Why you may want to work in a group
Working in a group is a different experience than working individually with a support person. In a group, we focus on being witnessed in both our struggles and joys. Together we engage in learning, collaboration, mutual support, play, and sparking curiosity: our learning process becomes "mentionable and manageable." Our groups are non-comparative and highly adaptable. We draw from a long history of approaches and tools, and are skilled at adapting to the needs of the people we work with. Groups can be: small or large; co-created academics for unschoolers or support for the participants' own learning projects; early learning through high school levels; a mix of independent and collective work. We welcome learners of different ages and stages within a learning group.
This is a great fit for:
homeschoolers who want some collective academic experience, but still want to root their learning in unschooling practices
families who want their multiage children to share a learning space
friend-groups who have their own projects or curriculum and would like support from a helpful adult.
Contact us to talk about what might work for you.
Families will gather the groups and host.
Meeting space can be provided for an additional cost.
If you are an individual who would like to be part of a group, but don't have one set up, let us know we will keep a running list of interested people and see if we can form them into groups.
Sessions are 2 hours in length. Price includes administrative and preparation time.
Bringing in a 2nd teacher allows for one-to-one support to happen at the same time as the group is meeting as well as much more opportunity for focused support.
Before our first session, we would meet as a group to talk about expectations, approach, and possibilities.
