What I Did Not Know:
Unschooling is an intresting form of at-home-schooling where very little guidance or structure is given to a child allowing them to learn at there own pace, time and method. As a very tactile learner and autodidact (read below), I can understand where this kind of education would be extremely powerful. However, I dont understand how you could guide a child in this manner to where they arent just goofing off. Or how would someone learn basics like reading, basic counting and math, etc. without some structure at least in the beginning.

While researching this I found a term that I thought was intresting: Autodidacticism. Learning something on your own in a non formal setting. Something that I find myself doing on an almost daily basis.
