9780826479990: How Children Learn at Home

In his Educating Children at Home, Alan Thomas found that many home educating families chose or gravitated towards an informal style of education, radically different from that found in schools. Such learning, also described as unschooling, natural or autonomous, takes place without most of the features considered essential for learning in school. At home there is no curriculum or sequential teaching, nor are there any lessons, textbooks, requirements for written work, practice exercises, marking or testing. But how can children who learn in this way actually achieve an education on a par with what schools offer?
In this new research, Alan Thomas and Harriet Pattison seek to explain the efficacy of this alternative pedagogy through the experiences of families who have chosen to educate their children informally. Based on interviews and extended examples of learning at home the authors explore:
- the scope for informal learning within children's everyday lives
- the informal acquisition of literacy and numeracy
- the role of parents and others in informal learning
- how children proactively develop their own learning agendas.
Their investigation provides not only an insight into the powerful and effective nature of informal learning but also presents some fundamental challenges to many of the assumptions underpinning educational theory.
This book will be of interest to education practitioners, researchers and all parents, whether their children are in or out of school, offering as it does fascinating insights into the nature of children's learning.

About the Author:

Dr Alan Thomas is Visiting Fellow at the University of London Institute of Education. He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society.

Harriet Pattison is a Research Associate at the University of London, Institure of Education. Her three children are home educated.

Review:

"How Children Learn at Home is an important contribution to the research on natural learning and yet is very readable and accessible to non-academics. Whether you are a natural learner, are considering natural learning or just interested in how it works-this book will illuminate what natural learning is and how effective it can be. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Reading it will help home educators recognise and appreciate the natural learning going on in their homes-whether natural learning is their home education method or not"
Susan Wright, Home Education Network, 2008
