This sounds like 'unschooling' to me. Basically let the child's interest become what they learn about. The adult doesn't assign lessons, the adult notices what the child's interested in and then gives them the tools the child can use to learn more about that interest themselves while the adult discusses the topic and guides the child to something connected to that interest for the child to discover more information about that topic. Is that about right?
