People wonder what unschooled teens will choose to do, to read, if their time is not structured, if they are not required to "do school".
Will they choose unlimited video games and easy read books and TV?
They may do.
Or like Anthony this week, they may choose to read..and read widely...and talk about reading.
In Anthony's (self directed, self chosen) reading pile this week....
Dante's Divine Comedy (Hell) and Shakespeare's Coriolanus.
Scott O'Dell"s historical novel The King's Fifth and a French Reader.
The education of an autodidact.
With mum and brothers and friends around, for discussion.
That quantity time.
"The highest perfection consists not in interior favours or in great rapture, but in bringing of our wills so closely into conformity with the will of God that as soon as we realize that He wills anything, we desire it ourselves with all our might."
St Teresa is one of my "mentor" saints. I read her writings, I look to her for inspiration.
She is my friend.
Yes, dead people as friends...read my post here.
