What is the Delayed Academic Method and how do I use it?

Delayed Academic - Nuts-n-Bolts

Dr. and Mrs. Raymond Moore invented this method. It involves following the Moore formula:

zStudy every day, from a few minutes to a few hours.
zManual work, at least as much as study.
zHome and/or community service, an hour or so per day. Focus on kids' interests and needs; be an example in consistency, curiosity and patience. Live with them! Worrly less about tests.

This is not an unschooling program; it is placing work interests before "book-ish" academics.
