Learning in Freedom

Welcome to Learning in Freedom, a blog all about the learning adventures (and mishaps) of the Allen family. My four children are unschooled, following their interests and passions every day and living the lives of their choosing. The purpose of this blog is to share our every day lives (and my not-so-humble opinons) with anyone interested in stopping by. We hope this will give a glimpse of how natural learning unfolds from day to day......

Word beads

Brandie posted this link at Imagination Tribe today: Word Beads on Sentence Strings
I clicked on her "in other words" meme and found this quote as a writing prompt:

"When a thing ceases to be a subject of controversy, it ceases to be a subject of interest." -- William Hazlitt

We watched "The Libertine" last night with Johnny Depp. Brilliant film in my opinion, with Depp at his finest (which is saying a lot, because I think he's an amazing actor) as the irreverant, passionate and self-centered Earl of Rochester, John Wilmot. Talk about a controversial figure. Apparently controversy is a healthy way to edge yourself into the history books, because here we are over 300 years later, making a movie about him. I found him intriguing.

Controversy IS interesting. That might be why unschooling is getting so much attention recently.
