One-on-One instruction benefits children, as does the proper Environment and Devoting Time to the process. Books on Basics can be collected, and Self Teaching principles applied so that the Natural Child can develop. Knowledge can be learned By Heart and shared, or Preserved in Many Forms such as Paper and Ink, CD-ROM, HD-Rosetta, Floppies, Hard Drives or Slates.
