Drawing with Children - Lesson 2 - Lesson Segment Descriptions and Sample Schedules - I have edited this page for clarity, ease of use (added anchor links), and, most importantly, I have added more sample lesson plan schedules to go with the class sequence options.

Of interest to home educators, aka, homeschoolers. 

Quoted from Pat Farenga:
Published on Nov 15, 2013
John Holt's book TEACH OUR OWN had just been printed and controversy over homeschooling was quite strong in 1981, when Holt joined two homeschooling families on live, national television to address strong opinions from a restive audience about homeschooling and schooling in general, moderated by Phil Donahue. 

John Holt appeared on The Donahue Show once before, a year or two earlier, speaking about Growing Without Schooling (GWS), a magazine Holt launched in 1977 to promote self-directed learning. That appearance, which I have never seen, helped put GWS on the radar of parents who were dissatisfied with their school options: the Holt office was flooded with mail for over two weeks from people seeking homeschooling information after the show aired. When John came out with his book about homeschooling, TEACH YOUR OWN, he was asked back on the program—this is what is recorded here. The families who join John are the Kinmonts from Utah and the Van Daam's from Rhode Island.
You can read the back issues of GWS here: https://johnholtgws.squarespace.com/gws-issue-archive/

I want blueberry shrubs, lettuce edging, thyme ground cover, and an apple tree house, just kidding about the tree house.

"Top five regrets of the dying
A nurse has recorded the most common regrets of the dying, and among the top ones is 'I wish I hadn't worked so hard'. What would your biggest regret be if this was your last day of life?"

Interesting. Mine is going to be #3 without a doubt. I have a hard time expressing what I am feeling to the person who should hear it. Other people seem to get the honor. Lol
