Welcome to the Master Class in Learning!
Each month we deep-dive into a single topic to help you in your homeschooling journey. Featuring readings, videos, audio lectures and more, our Master Class in Learning explores topics such as motivation, planning, the power of play and theories of learning. You can also join in the conversation around each post, sharing your thoughts and learning from other members.

We like to call this section: Professional development for home educators!
Featured Lesson: Brave Learner Book Club: Liberation from School
Brave Learner Book Club: Liberation from School
How do we abandon the trappings of school, harness the energy of home and family, and help our children make authentic academic progress? In this Master Class, we’ll consider The Brave Learner’s approach to helping our kids flourish educationally in “home not school.”
Julie will show us how our kids can thrive with routines rather than schedules and how they respond to invitation and inspiration rather than insistence. A marathoner herself, Julie will explain how interval training can build learning stamina in our kids.
But is this really enough?
We’ll consider concrete ways we can measure academic progress even as the role of inspiration-led learning grows. Planning from Behind with Narratives and Scatterbooking can tell us whether our homeschooling is “enough”—and helps us see and celebrate our children’s learning!
Join Julie for our webinar on Wednesday, December 11 at 7:00 PM (ET) for more ideas on how to let go of arbitrary school ways and embrace the power of family learning.
