What is Discovery Learning?

“Discovery Learning” is a working title for my personal homeschooling philosophy. I expect my thoughts and ideas to grow and transform as I learn more in the years to come.  I call it Discovery Learning because I believe that true education is about giving children the tools they need to discover. Children are naturally curious and want to learn. As home educators, we can help that spark stay alive in our children as they discover their world, beliefs, identity, passions and goals in life.

I am building my philosophy through reading, research, observing, and studying various education philosophies (both homeschool and conventional schooling styles).  I see this blog as my mental playground. I do not believe any educational style or philosophy is one size fits all, but I hope that through my sharing, you may find inspiration, support, and encouragement to break the mold and define your own homeschooling philosophy.
