Trailer Park Unschoolers

Because you don't need to be rich to unschool!

Corde’s Challenge


Corde has decided she’s a smart, educated, really capable kid.  She wants all of you to be smart, intelligent, capable people too.  It would be really easy for her to just say, “go read a book” or share her knowledge with you, but that wouldn’t allow you to bring your own perspective into things.  As a result, she’s come up with this brilliant challenge.

Here’s what you do.  Go to the Documentary Challenge page.  Choose a documentary.  Watch it alone or with your family.  Discuss what you learned with at least one person that didn’t see the documentary with you.

Why?  Learning is good!  Sharing what you know is better.  We’re going to try and keep the documentary page updated with all of the latest selections so you’ll have plenty to look through.

And how is this a challenge?  Corde and I are still trying to devise a way to figure out how to keep track of everything so we can tally the results.  I think the general plan is to put everyone’s name in a drawing for each of the documentaries you watch and then Corde wants to draw names for a hand-made gift for the winner.  I’m not sure how often she intends to do drawings, and how many prizes she plans to give out, but we want to get the idea going in your minds, and get you thinking about those documentaries, maybe watching a few.  While the knowledge you’ll get should be reward enough, Corde wanted to give an additional bonus.

So for the time being, just leave a comment on the Documentary Challenge page with the name of the documentary you saw and we’ll start collecting names for our drawing.  We’ll keep the details coming, so stay tuned in!

With four kids, who has time for much? We spend a lot of time together, which translates to a lot of knitting time for me when we hang out. We've been trying to get back to our unschooling roots. We watch a lot of videos, play a lot of games, and pay attention to the things we notice in our everyday life. It's been quite the big adventure!
