Carlo Ricci’s: Learning To Read Naturally

Sometimes we get stuck doing things in certain ways and invest so much energy in trying to do what we have always done better, that we do not substantively and fundamentally challenge what we are doing and explore what others are doing. In this talk I hope to get us to rethink how we teach reading and share what other ways people are using to successfully learn to read. In our current system of mainstream schooling, I believe it would be safe to generalize that at least two assumptions around learning to read are prevalent: First, that children should learn to read early and, second, that learning to read requires deliberate systematic and plenty of intervention from someone else. Through personal experience, other people’s experiences and what researchers and scholars say, I hope to share how people learn to successfully read on their own at different ages and by asking for help when they need it rather than having instruction externally imposed on them.

Carlo Ricci’s Freedom: Children Are Capable

Children are among the last acceptably oppressed group. The way to release them from this condition is to give them rights that they currently do not have, but need to have. Unschoolers are in a unique position to lead this battle and to convince the rest of the world that children are capable. I know this intuitively and from my personal experience, which I will share.

Carlo Ricci’s: Learning From Children

The assumption all too often, unfortunately, is that children learn from adults because adults have more experience and knowledge. By observing, listening, and following, I want to share some of the greatest lessons I have learned from my two remarkable teachers who are now aged two and four. In paying this respect to their influence on me since their birth, I wish to celebrate the wisdom we can glean from children and ultimately contribute to ending the oppression that so many children sadly endure.
