    4. 4. hoW do you WorldSchool?hoW do you WorldSchool? • It’s easy! • Include the world in what you’re doing. • If you’re reading, read about other cultures – or read books from other cultures. • When you cook, cook international meals, and talk about the culture while you’re eating. • If you can, travel as much as possible – whether local, national, or international. • Be Curious. Explore!
    5. 5. hoW do you WorldSchool?hoW do you WorldSchool? Ideas: Explore ethnic neighborhoods, grocery stores, and restaurants Cook international foods – make it a week from a different country! Explore photos and videos from around the world Learn new languages Host international students or visitors Read books from other cultures Learn about and play sports from other cultures What causes/subjects interest you? Explore those, globally (animal shelters, music, photography, weather, anime, textiles, etc.). Can you help, visit, make new friends, join an online community? Listen to international news and tv shows – youtube is an excellent resource for this. Do what you love – just expand it to include the world!

    16. 16. woRLdschooLed teenswoRLdschooLed teens Worldschooling teens – it’s worth it! As a teenager, your mind starts to open up and see the world around you. Being on the road at this time of your life makes it easier for you to understand how people of other religions, cultures, and countries interact and work together. Being in a classroom all the time doesn’t prepare you for the real world. Interacting with people of all ages and all cultures prepares you for life as an adult and being an adult in the real world (as opposed to being in a classroom). Makes you more creative – you’re seeing (and learning about) the world from outside the walls of a classroom.
    17. 17. woRLdschooLed teenswoRLdschooLed teens If you’re schooling a teen, there are many courses that you can take online. Some of them are cheap (or free) – check out Coursera, EdX, and others. Other ideas: Watch TED Talks. Check out the following inspirational articles:

    19. 19. Worldschooled TeensWorldschooled Teens It’s cold. Painfully cold. So cold, I begin to question the logic behind my thrill seeking madness. It’s these sort of crazy people that end up on the news, right? The headlines screaming American Found Frozen Between Tectonic Plates, Iceland. The water is only up to my ankles, and already, a string of eclectic language has escaped my lips. It’s now or never, though. The frozen body of a Hawaii teen was located in the chilly waters of Iceland… I double-check that my mask is on tight, dry suit valves are locked and closed. ‘Oh god,’ I mumble as I plunge into the unknown.

    21. 21. Worldschooled TeensWorldschooled Teens For many, summer vacation consists of a trip out of town, or a few consecutive days spent achieving a luxurious tan (or sunburn, as the case may be) on the beach. Maybe you’ll enroll in sports, or if you’re feeling adventurous, take a drive across the country. For me, summer has always been a continuation of our life on the road. You could say that our entire life is one long vacation. Of course, being on the road can have its’ moments of being less than enjoyable, but then again, so can staying at home.   We spent this summer traveling around Southeast Asia, where we will be staying for an undetermined amount of time. It’s a very beautiful part of the world, with lush green rice paddies and miles of jungle blanketed mountains. Elephants trundle through the hills, now carrying tourists as often as logs. Muddy men behind even muddier water buffalo plow the rice fields. Tentative green sprouts poke out of the water, carefully planted by wrinkled old grandmothers in pointed sun hats. Tall temples stand proudly in the forests, shining as the sun reflects off of thousands of pieces of colored glass arranged into spectacular mosaics on the walls. It is a land of enchantment. A Summer in Southeast Asia Worldschooled teen Hannah Miller
