GUERRILLA LEARNING IS CREATING A HOME ENVIRONMENT THAT FILLS YOUR CHILD WITH THE JOY OF LEARNING

Let your daughter read her library books instead of finishing her homework . Ask your eleven-year-old's beloved third grade teacher to comment on his poetry. Invite a massage therapist to dinner because your daughter wants to go to massage school instead of college. Give your child the freedom to pursue his interests, develop her strengths, cultivate self-discipline, and discover the joy of learning throughout life.

If you've ever felt that your child wasn't flourishing in school or simply needs something the professionals aren't supplying, you're ready to become a ""guerrilla educator."" Revolutionary and inspiring, Guerrilla Learning explains what's wrong (and what's useful) about our traditional schools and shows you how to take charge of your family's education to raise thinking, creative young people despite the constraints of traditional schooling.

Filled with fun and exciting exercises and projects to do with children of all ages, this remarkable approach to childhood, education, and life will help you release your child's innate abilities and empower him or her in the wider world that awaits beyond the school walls.

From the Publisher:

"A big-hearted book of important ideas. Be prepared to have your eyes opened to secrets the classroom hasn't learned!" (John Taylor Gatto, author, The Underground History of American Education

"Guerrilla Learning takes embattled parents out of the trenches where they've been all too often waging a frustrating war against antiquated school methods, and empowers them with skillful tools to help their kids develop their natural genius and engage in learning at its best: through inquiry, enthusiasm, and passionate engagement with self, others, and the world." (Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D., author of Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom, Awakening Your Child's Natural Genius, In Their Own Way, and The Myth of the A.D.D. Child)

"One of the most important books yet written on education and our current school-child crisis. Written with a clarity and simplicity that makes it available to any and all parents, it is a delight to read and remarkably informative." (Joseph Chilton Pearce, author, Magical Child and Evolution's End: Claiming the Potential of Our Intelligence)
