In which I am a Contributor

Even though I have resigned myself somewhat to this whole child-led learning idea, I haven’t quite beat back my need for Checking Stuff Off A List. I am still trying to find a middle ground that satisfies all parties. I flailed around and finally came up with a starting point that works for me. I wrote about How to Create Your Own Unit Study at Heart of the Matter last week.

And yesterday they graciously printed one of my favorite Christmas recipes – Quick and Easy Cake Mix Cookies. These are unbelievably easy, with only a few ingredients. They are a true staple of mine. One year I gave away something like 50 dozen of them.

As a matter of fact, I think I have all the stuff to make another batch…

    Hey Deb, I loved your post on HOTM, but the thing that nailed it, that made it YOU, was your ipod reference at the end. Because not only are you wise, exploring all these wonderful ideas and sharing them, but you are also hilariously self-deprecating and irreverent and always make me laugh. I love how you write. Always look forward to what you write. Thank you for everything that you write!

    I am going to try those cookies tomorrow.

    I’m starting to think that unit studies might be a good way to go with my kids but I feel entirely unsure how to do it. Your article helps me a bit but I think I will still have to do more research so that I can figure it all out. Unit studies make so much sense but the idea of putting one together really intimidates me!
