Carnival of Unschooled Life—November 2010 Edition


Go to life, not school.

As we enter the holiday-filled time of the year, let’s celebrate that we are living in the spirit of freedom and curiosity that unschooling brings. No construction-paper leaves stapled to corkboards three feet above our heads, unless we want ’em. Real, live leaf-crunching walks in the brisk, chilly air any time of day or night.

I hope you enjoy this month’s carnival.


Life at Home

Pamela at Blah, Blah, Blog presents Play, Play, Play All Day.


Out in the World

Laura Grace Weldon at Relentless Optimism writes about When Girls Think Their Looks Mean Everything.

Carrie Oakley lists 100 Awesome Blogs for Roadschoolers at Online Colleges. This carnival normally rejects “list posts” in favor of personal insights from actual unschoolers, but every rule needs an exception. Carrie’s list contains blogs you might find useful or just plain fun.



Steven at The Emotion Machine presents Your Own Self-Directed Graduate Program.

Karen at The Stone Age Techie points out The Intersection of Math and Art.


Dark Nights of the Soul

Pamela at Blah, Blah, Blog declares Enough with the Dire Predictions.


Encounters of the School-y Kind

Idzie at I’m Unschooled. Yes, I Can Write. presents The Need for Schooling, in which she states “No one *needs* schooling!”

Cristina at Home Spun Juggling tells about doing some Unschool-y Accounting.

My deepest thanks to everyone who contributes and everyone who reads this for supporting The Carnival of Unschooled Life. Words are beams of light. Let’s continue to shine them on the things we believe in.


The carnival will return on December 1, 2010. Submissions will be due by November 30, 2010.

To contribute a post, please use the carnival submission form.

Live, laugh, play, learn, talk, walk, hug, dance, sing, and shine—until we meet again.
