A Structured Approach to Interest-Led Learning Podcast

January 9, 2019

Back in October 2018 I recorded a podcast with Homeschool Snapshots and it was released in mid-December. It was a lot of fun and I hope you will check it out!


The Homeschool Snapshots podcast is all about getting a glimpse into the lives of other homeschoolers. I’ve enjoyed listening to the podcast in the past, so when they asked if I was interested in being interviewed, I jumped at the chance!

Amy and I discussed everything from how I stay organized (spoiler alert: I don’t!), how I define success in our homeschooling, and how I use literature as the foundation of our homeschooling. One of my favorite question during the podcast has to be when she asked me what literary classic our homeschool day most resembles. How would you answer that question?  Tune in to find out which book I chose!
