Dynamic: An Inclusive, Self-Directed Learning Community (NW Indiana & Chicago) (startup)
Postal Code: 46321
Country: United States
This unschooling community is in the forming stage, with a soft launch in Spring 2023 and plans to convene regularly beginning Fall 2023. We are currently seeking families interested in getting involved!
DYNAMIC is a caring community for self-directed learning for young people of all ages and their grown-ups. Our goal is to create opportunities, throughout NW Indiana and Chicagoland, to get together to play, explore, learn, and socialize in community.
Self-directed: (a.k.a. unschooling) self-directed education is learner-driven, consent-based, and individualized to the needs and interests of each child.
Inclusive: We are an inclusive group that seeks to welcome diverse members, foster a climate of intentional belonging, and be an affirming space for all.
Relationship-first: In our interactions with young people we prioritize connection, cooperation, and mutual respect. We strive to hold developmentally-appropriate expectations of children and to collaboratively and gently guide them as we grow and learn, together.
Much of self-directed learning takes place as part of everyday life. We are committed to providing opportunities for children to cultivate their understanding and appreciation of:
Social Justice & Liberation
Nature & Our Environment
Free Play & Creativity
SDE Optimizing Conditions
