How to find a mentor - Zak Slayback returns to the Studio of Champ-yinz to discuss how self-directed learners of all ages can build an enriching "Cabinet of Models." This cabinet includes teachers, advisors, and mentors. Early in the show we'll make the distinction between teachers, advisors and mentors, outline the desirable attributes of each, how long each relationship should last, the type of knowledge and benefit you should seek from each, and the weight to give their advice in the context of your larger goals and plans. Later we'll focus in on how to find a mentor. Zak has gone through this process himself, building a strong relationship with Isaac Morehouse of Praxis that helped him launch his career. Zak advises an understanding of opportunity cost - looking for busy people, identifying tasks that aren’t worth their time but are worth your time. We'll also discuss some strategies to bring value to these people when making introductions.

Jamie Crane is here to close out the year with a feel-good show and a stroll down memory lane. Today's main topic was intended to be fitness. When I see someone go through a significant personal transformation, I like to know how and why they did it. What changed? What worked? What didn't? When I was visiting Jamie in Oklahoma last year, I assumed he was kidding or embellishing about Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Turns out he was serious and quite committed. But at SSP we offer no prescriptive diet and fitness advice; Jamie tells his story, and I listen skeptically. Here is a resource if you'd like to learn more about the basics of low T: Slideshow: A Visual Guide to Low Testosterone We'll also talk about why Jamie got off Facebook, kindness, the old days of the liberty movement, and our attempts to mix comedy with outreach.

Nathan Fraser joins me to discuss the recent T.M. Landry scandal - revelations that threaten to dash many people's hopes about self-directed learning models disrupting and possibly even healing a corrupt and failed schooling system. T.M. Landry fashioned itself as a revolutionary college prep school. It was promoted to national (half) attention through viral college acceptance videos, while boasting an 100% college acceptance rate.

An Inventory of T.M Landry's Educational Promise

- student led - self directed learning - teachers or mentors who didn't jump through the state hoops to be "qualified" - no textbooks In reality, L.M Landry was a predatory operation against parents and charities looking to help disadvantaged teens escape failure and despair. But T.M. Landry is a symptom of larger problems, both in the public K-12 system and in higher education. The Landrys were able to exploit the hopeful people willing to give to them so generously, as a response to the dismal failure of the schools in that area; Louisiana ranks 49th in the country in education. The Landrys also took advantage of an increasingly ideological college admissions process, which I will argue is prejudiced and even white supremacist (but in a warm and fuzzy, socially acceptable progressive way).

Scott Hambrick is a home educating parent, entrepreneur, strength coach and the creator (Reader In Chief) of OnlineGreatBooks.com. He joins me today to discuss the Great Books of the Western World and the Great Conversation contained within, as well as tips on how we can improve our mental and physical strength.

What are the Great Books? What Is the Great Conversation?

- How was the collection created, criteria - Syntopical organization vs chronological order - Mortimer Adler's List over 500 books, goal: informed participation in a democracy - shared inquiry model - How to Read a Book

The Benefits of The Great Conversation

- diversity of ideas and presence of the clash of ideas - "breaking the script" from parents, school, culture - disciplines engagement in your own mind, and in the minds of others - understand where we are now and why - Many of the idea men behind the design of modern societies have read these books; some of them wrote these books - understanding where we are now and why: a foundation for a discussion about where we could go - The Story of Philosophy (Will Durant), - Leonard Peikof's collection; through an ideological lens, I was dismissing a lot of people wholesale

Academic Opposition To The Great Books of the Western World

- What do these books still have tell us in the 21st century? - Diversity of thought discouraged. Postmodern influence - The Closing of the American Mind 1987

Online Great Books: The Program

- how it started - how it works - Building the habit of reading - good faith interlocutors

Pat Farenga is a leading unschooling advocate, and the father of three adult unschooled children. He worked closely with unschooling pioneer John Holt on the Growing Without Schooling Magazine, and in the mid-1980s he took over as publisher of GWS and the president of Holt Associates. Today Pat runs the website JohnHoltGWS.com, which archives all the issues of the magazine, plus a variety of unschooling books and resources. He joins me to discuss the history of unschooling (the idea and the movement), his experiences as an unschooling parent, his relationship with John Holt and the language we use to convey our ideas.

Pat Discusses The Impact of John Taylor Gatto

He met John in 1991 and they became friends. John spoke at several of Pat's conferences.

Pat's Personal History of Unschooling

He and his wife raised three girls, and while embracing the unschooling philosophy, they left the door into and out school open for them. The embrace was a very gradual process, from idealism about teaching to John Holt's impact on his ideas about learning. The importance of avoiding the creation of an adversarial relationship with school in the minds of children.

A Mindset For Unschooling

- slowing down, living consciously - The Legend of Zelda teaches reading - appreciation of choice - trying school

The Language of Unschooling

- We discuss the words we use in relation to branding and outreach. - My discomforting revelation about the low volume of searches for unschooling and deschooling. - John Holt's issue with the words "education" and "educator" - The interesting etymology of the word "Education" and how the meaning was changed

The Professional Rejection of John Holt's Ideas

- Holt: learning is not the result of teaching; it's the result of the activity of the learners; teaching can be helpful, but the prerequisite is the intrinsic motivation of the learner - Gatto: "professional interest is served by making what is easy to do seem hard" - Escape From Childhood (1974)- advocacy needs and rights of children and the ephebiphobic (fear of young people) response

Her website SandraDodd.com is one of the most comprehensive unschooling resources on the internet. She joins me for a fast-paced but fairly comprehensive discussion on her unschooling experiences, influences and philosophy.

From Public School Teaching To Unschooling

How did Sandra's revelations as a teacher help her embrace unschooling? How Sandra was able able to take ownership over her classroom. John Holt and others informed Sandra's approach to teaching

Unschoolers and Reading

Sandra share the stories of her three children learning to read, and how there might not always be clear incremental steps.

A Mindset For Unschooling

- "read a little, try a little, wait a while, watch" - patience - what are we watching for? - addressing problems a discomforts - appreciation of choice and projecting optimism - power-with, instead of power-over relationships, partnership - beware of blindly "supportive" unschooling communities Other Topics - what's the problem with the word "education" - navigating unschooling resources and making connections in the early 1990s - Influences: John Holt and the school reform ideas of the 1960s and 1970s, laboratory "open classroom" schools under the supervision of universities and why the effort to insert this into public schools failed

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
