Self-Directed Learning: Documentation and Life Stories

 
9780692407615: Self-Directed Learning: Documentation and Life Stories

What guarantees success? Four years of high school? A college degree? A nine-to-five job? Perhaps, but many teens yearn for a different path. In his latest book, “Self-Directed Learning: Documentation and Life Stories,” Wes Beach argues that people who recognize their genuine interests and talents need only their self-knowledge, confidence, enthusiasm, determination, ability to persevere, and sense of autonomy to carry them where they want to go. Wes shares stories of people whose needs were not met by traditional education, and thus created their own paths. Wes also includes transcripts and information that his students used to gain admission to colleges and universities throughout the country. “Self-Directed Learning” speaks to people who desire to pursue their passions and grow into productive and fulfilled adults.

About the Author:

Wes Beach worked in public schools for 31 years, mostly in high schools, and in a private school for one year. He taught science, math, and English, and directed programs for gifted and “at-risk” kids. He wised up in 1993, left the system, and has since then directed Beach High School, which consists of a home office and an attitude–the attitude expressed in this book. He is at present the Teen Adviser for both the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum (GHF) and the HomeSchool Association of California (HSC); he served on HSC’s board for two years. He has spoken at many conferences (especially at HSC’s each year), written a number of articles, and authored another GHF Press book, "Forging Paths: Beyond Traditional Schooling." He is an outside consultant for the Davidson Institute for Talent Development, and in 2005 received a Distinguished Service Award from the California Association for the Gifted.
