I bought this book when we switched our method of homeschooling from using textbooks to using unit studies (Ch 11 Journaling with School Groups even has a few pages about using journaling as a part of "an interdisciplinary hands-on curriculum" that helps a newbie like me add journaling to unit studies) I have 5 children ages 3 to 17 We needed something that could cover many grade levels and be used over and over This manual serves both of those purposes We were almost completely new to journaling and this book has taught us many new things like how to sketch an object even if you can hardly make stick figures We have started to incorporate days in our school year for the kids and me to pack up our drawing materials notebooks water and snacks and go exploring Sometimes we drive to a new place sometimes we stay in our front yardThis book was meant to be read by the teacher and the ideas in this book are to be shown/taught to the students Older children could read through the book and use it on their own Just the feel of the cover and the heavy sheeny pages make you feel like you are picking up a special bookThere is one drawback to this book especially if older students are using it on their own It has references to both evolution and mother earth At first it is subtle then builds towards the end of the book Some of the comments are quotes from other people in the margins of the pages but the quotes make up a lot of the book I feel this book has a lot of good to offer I just wished I would have been "warned" before I bought it
