Self-Directed Learning: Documentation and Life Stories
by Wes Beach and Sarah J Wilson

What guarantees success? Four years of high school? A college degree? A nine-to-five job? Perhaps, but many teens yearn for a different path. In his latest book, “Self-Directed Learning: Documentation and Life Stories,” Wes Beach argues that people who recognize their genuine interests and talents need only their self-knowledge, confidence, enthusiasm, determination, ability to persevere, and sense of autonomy to carry them where they want to go. Wes shares stories of people whose needs were not met by traditional education, and thus created their own paths. Wes also includes transcripts and information that his students used to gain admission to colleges and universities throughout the country. “Self-Directed Learning” speaks to people who desire to pursue their passions and grow into productive and fulfilled adults.
