"Life is either a daring adventure of it is nothing." So said the great Helen Keller. And so, Susan Cole Ross and her husband Jeff embark on their greatest adventure as a family and their greatest challenge as educators: A year of homeschooling in the mountains of New Hampshire. Sliding Home chronicles Susan's thoughts as she and Jeff observe, coach, and teach their preteen sons - one with dyslexia who leaps four grade levels in reading ability. This is a mother's memoir, exquisitely caring and personal, but also academically astute. Jean Piaget unveiled student learning and motivation by watching his children, and so does Susan as her sons explore books, projects, nature, and national pastimes across America. With genuine prose, Susan offers rich insights into child development and education that will benefit teachers and parents supporting student-directed learning. Informed by research, but reads like a novel, Sliding Home is a timely look at what our children need most to succeed.
