Eclectic, because I use many approaches. I like the appeal of multiple intelligences, and try to tailor everything we do to be able to be absorbed by as many senses/ways as possible. The world is out encyclopedia, and we use it. I like to find real-world applications for what we learn about, and expand as his interest permits, so we explore a lot.

Eclectic - as we are all of the above! We use internet school, and lapbooks, and Charlotte Mason and some unschooling, and Units, and anything else I think might be fun and informative! I try to switch things up pretty regularly, plus my 2 kids learn in completely differnet ways, so one learns Math better with worksheets and books, the other needs videos and online practice, as a for instance. Sometimes I'll find an adult book on a subject and I'll just read it aloud and we discuss the concept - like A People's History of the United States.  I try to follow the kids curiosity, but admit that kids can't be curious about that which they have never been exposed, so I'll toss out a lot of different concepts, books, museums, etc...

I put Charlotte Mason, because our cirriculum is a cross between Charlotte Mason and Classical. But honestly, we don't really use any sort of approach. We don't do anything that is classroom like. I guess we are sort of unschoolers, but not really. I dunno.
