Depending on your state, you should be able to unschool and keep a portfolio.

I do evaluations and have met unschooling families. They keep book lists, pictures of the children's projects or projects themselves, brochures from special trips, etc...Some writing samples like a letter to grandma..story..and so forth.

As for workbooks, they absolutely CAN be a part of unschooling. It's not about the tools as it is so much about the method. If her daughter likes workbooks and chooses to do one, that's still unschooling.

See the difference?

I think you're right Ramona. I have a friend who unschools and follows her daughter's interests. She says she won't use workbooks. I don't know how she'll be able to pass state evaluations though since we have to maintain portfolios. That is what really confuses me and causes me not to completely unschool.
