Children and teachers work together to ensure that the students master the basics of an age-appropriate curriculum while exploring areas of personal interest. The students record their work choices and set appropriate goals. Regular meetings with their teacher encourage students to use the freedom of the classroom with responsibility. Students are free to choose worthy and appropriate work and have uninterrupted time to explore their own interests. Teachers guide them in goal-setting and completion. As independence is fostered, the children’s passion for learning often leads them to mastery that exceeds an adult’s expectations.
