Unit Studies:  Unit studies teach subjects around one theme, integrating learning.  More preparation is required by the parent, but most subjects are taught together and can be taught to children at different grade levels at the same time.  If pre-package curriculums are used, then children will be exposed to the same scope and sequence, but in a different order than what peers in school are doing.

Unschooling:  Unschooling is child-directed learning.  Children explore their environment and learn what interests them.  Parents help nuture the child's interests by helping the child access community resources and get information from a variety of sources.  Unschooling can involve using traditional learning and unit studies when the children is self-motivated to learn using those methods.
