A tranquil mind. Any chance you want one of those? I know I do. Today on the Read-Aloud Revival podcast, we're talking about how readers can give themselves the gift of a tranquil mind by reading old books. Wait, did I just say "by reading old books?" I did. And I have a feeling this episode will challenge and expand your expectation for what reading old books can do for us in the here and now. Alan Jacobs I like to describe Alan Jacobs as one of my favorite thinkers... ...and if you listen in to this episode, you'll know why. He's an accomplished author and a Distinguished Professor in the Humanities at Baylor University, and in this episode he's talking about why we can benefit from reading old books right now more than ever. His reasons might just surprise and delight you -- especially if you're feeling a little frayed by everything in the world demanding your attention. I'm not gonna lie, folks, a conversation with Alan Jacobs is always, always worth the time. I think you're going to love this one! Also, be sure to check out his newest book, Breaking Bread with the Dead: A Reader's Guide to a More Tranquil Mind. I loved it. In this episode: our own tranquility vs our own twitchinesshow to read books that contain troublesome and problematic ideas (because old books tend to do that... a lot!)what it means to read with generosity I also answer a listener question about whether we should let our kids do their own independent reading instead of listening to the group read-aloud.

You're so close to it, you can see certain things, but you can't see the overall composition. You can't see how the different elements of the painting relate to one another. So, what do you do? You step back."Alan Jacobs "Art is our chief means of breaking bread with the dead."W.H. Auden "If you've read the past carefully and patiently and you've developed a little bit of tranquility, then you have a chance of kind of carrying over that tranquility to your encounters with people who disagree with you ... and that I think people really notice."Alan Jacobs "The past is a foreign country.

What would happen if you decided to be your child's mentor, rather than their teacher? What if you awakened their wonder and curiosity, so that they became the kind of people who thirst for knowledge and understanding? What if you could fall in love with homeschooling your kids? In this episode, Sally Clarkson and I continue a conversation we started over on her podcast a few weeks ago. We discuss how Sally translated her own boredom with traditional education in order to find a different way for her four children... and the (rather fantastic) results of those choices. If you ever wonder whether homeschooling "works" or gets good results, you probably want to listen to this episode. 😉 ...and if you're about to set off on a year of home learning, be encouraged and inspired to have a glorious year of awaking wonder in your kids.

I believe that you've been made uniquely. I believe there is imagination to unearth, there are strengths to develop.'"- Sally Clarkson "A teacher covers material ... a mentor uncovers it.

We need a drumroll today, because on the podcast we’re revealing all of our autumn picks for RAR Premium. I'm also answering podcast listener Corrie's question about how to preserve her son's love of reading.

Recently, I posted on social media about my oldest daughter becoming our first homeschool graduate. I’ll admit to being a proud mama. I think for a lot of us homeschooling our kids, we hear that it works, we are told colleges want homeschoolers-- are actively seeking out homeschoolers-- but we still are a little nervous. We wonder if we’ve prepared them well, if this grand homeschooling experiment is going to work out. So when my oldest daughter was not only accepted into every single college she applied to, but received generous merit-based scholarships at each one, as well, I breathed a HUGE sigh of relief. At the end of that post about my oldest daughter graduating, I left a little note for homeschool mamas, letting them know that all the lessons, conversations, books, essays, projects, field trips, the good days and the hard days -- all of the WORK of homeschooling, is completely and totally worth it. Worth it in a way you can’t really see when you’re in the middle of it, but that’s crystal clear when you’re at the end of the road, looking back. Your homeschool does not have to be impressive. You can be ordinary. So can your homeschool plans. So many of us worry that we aren’t enough, or that our families aren’t the extraordinary type. But most of the homeschoolers I know don’t feel like they’re rocking homeschooling. They don’t feel like they’re doing an amazing job. They sort of feel… ordinary. I know many of you are considering homeschooling for the first time, and I know that you don’t think you can do it. You think you’re not enough. You think it will be too hard. Maybe you did some distance learning through your school last spring, and you’re ready to throw in the towel on the idea of homeschooling. Since many of us will be home educating in one capacity or another in the coming school year, I want to share 10 homeschooling mistakes I’ve made over the years (trust me, there are plenty more- but these are the 10 that I thought would be most useful to you as you set out on a new school year.) You can learn from mistakes. This is a podcast episode, so click the play button below to start listening. You can also grab the full transcript at the top of this post.

Why read aloud to kids who can read themselves? It's a fair question. Not many of us remember parents or teachers reading to us once we were old enough to read on our own. But the benefits of reading aloud to kids who are old enough to read themselves are numerous. That's what we're tackling in this episode of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast. In this episode, you'll hear: 5 major benefits to reading aloud to kids who can read themselvesHow reading together can help us connect during challenging timesWhy experts agree that reading aloud is an absolute game changer when it comes to academics For a one-page PDF you can share and distribute, pop your email in below, and I'll send it to you.

We know that we want our kids to love to read. And it's important (really important!) to give them the best chance fall in love with books. That's why so many of us get worried when we have a child who doesn't love reading. It's a valid worry. What can be done about it? On today's episode of the podcast, I share ideas for what to do when your child doesn't love reading.

Stephen D. Krashen, The Power of Reading "My credibility with students and the reason they trust me when I recommend books to them stems from the fact that I read every day of my life and that I talk about reading constantly. I am not mandating an activity for them to do that I'm not doing myself. I do not promote reading to my students because it is good for them or because it is required for school success. I advocate reading because it is enjoyable and enriching."

Being stuck at home is getting old fast, but finishing the school year doesn’t need to be a slog. We've heard you loud and clear: it's really, really hard to concentrate on homeschooling right now. And we all want to finish the school year strong, right? On today's episode of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast, I'm sharing something brand new that I am over-the-moon excited about: a workshop series we're calling WOW: Writers on Writing. This workshop series will help you spice up your home learning and finish your school year well. Here's what the workshop series looks like: The workshops cover a wide range of writing skills, and all of them are taught by published authors. Your kids attend the live workshop each Tuesday (or watch the replay later). They'll learn a specific writing skill from one of our favorite published authors. Then they'll complete simple writing prompts to practice that skill throughout the week. This can easily make up your kids' writing curriculum for the rest of the school year, especially for ages 8-16. It's a fun, rejuvenating, and effective way to get a win right here at the finish line of the school year. To participate, get RAR Premium. The workshops are just one part of our top-notch spring and summer lineup. Get RAR Premium Want to hear me talk about the spring and summer lineup? Click the play button below.

Did you know that when you plant bamboo, you will water it, protect it, nurture it...and nothing happens for 5 years? At least it looks like nothing is happening, because it's all happening underground, where the bamboo is growing a complex root structure. But above ground? Nothin'. You've got to faithfully water and care for that plant for f-i-v-e years before you get any proof that you're making any progress. Homeschooling is a lot like bamboo. In today's episode of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast, I'm sharing the audio from a recent Circle with Sarah (our monthly coaching sessions in RAR Premium) in which I'm talking about this same experience in homeschooling. You work, and you work, and you work, and you can't always see the difference that slog is making. But the seeming dormancy? It matters. In this episode, you'll hear: The power of one small action - it can change everythingHow to be sure we are using the right measuring stick (...are you?)How to know where to put your energy next I also answer a listener question about what to do if you cry while reading emotional books aloud.

If you have a gifted, twice-exceptional, or advanced reader, this episode is for you. Today I'm chatting with Colleen Kessler of Raising Lifelong Leaners. A gifted specialist and mother of her own gifted and twice-exceptional kids, Colleen understands the challenges of connecting advanced readers with books... ... and the challenges that arise when your advanced reader can read anything, but isn't emotionally ready to have free reign at the library. In this episode, you'll hear: what to do when your kids can read "older" books, when you know they aren't ready for the contentBook recommendations that feature gifted or twice-exceptional kidsThe answer to whether your child can read too much (we know... it sounds like a good problem to have, but it can be a struggle!) I also answer two listener questions about finding books for sensitive kids, and great book series for young, voracious readers.

In today's episode of the Read-Aloud Revival, you'll get to know why Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women, was such a wonder (and indeed, she was!). And who could be a better guest for this conversation than Jan Turnquist? Jan Turnquist Jan Turnquist is Executive Director of Orchard House, the home where Louisa wrote Little Women, and Co-Executive Producer, Director, and Host of the Emmy-Award Winning documentary, Orchard House. She's a true Louisa May Alcott expert, and has wonderful insight into the Alcott family, and why Little Women has endured. In this episode, you'll hear: my own very favorite part of visiting Orchard House (hint: it has to do with drawing on the walls!)the beauty in re-reading Little Women at different life stageslittle known details about Louisa May Alcott, and the very unique and rather revolutionary Alcott family I'll also tackle a listener question about whether it's worthwhile to have your kids watch movie versions of a book after reading it.

I really liked everything he had to say about reading aloud but I really could have without the snide tone about public schools and teachers.
