Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

What Exactly Have We Been Doing Lately?

Well, the girls and D went skiing and tubing in Vermont:

The girls have been working on an art project that seemed to take forever -- it is multimedia with watercolor, pencil, and colored pencil:



They have begun learning how to draw figures and I hope to post pictures soon.

They have been swimming (a lot). They both are swimming a national competition this weekend:





They have been researching HPV and making a video (the last 30 seconds of the video is cut off for some reason):

They have been researching Ruth Handler:

And, in their spare time they have both read about 5 books in the past 3 weeks.

So --- even though we haven't been posting, we have been busy. In addition to posting weekly challenges and solutions at Think! and teaching some seminars on Government and Women's History, I have been working as a volunteer for the Endangered Species Coalition, creating and compiling educational materials for Endangered Species Day. I have also been doing some book reviews for the Allied Cultures Against Discrimination. I plan to teach another seminar on technology in April. D has been working hard and when home, he has planted lots of things in our garden: lettuce, carrots, onions, blueberries, and tomatoes. We are planning a family reunion for the T family to coincide with the Relay for Life in May. We have 3 happy survivors to walk in the survivor lap! So, that's what we've been doing. Maybe we'll get back to posting more regularly in the next few months.
