Curriculum Choices & Resources
There is a smorgasbord of choices when deciding on curricula for your family. It is often trial and error until you find what works best for you and your child. We offer you a complete look at the curriculum choices available.

 
Choosing Your Curriculum
  There are so many curriculum choices available that it can be overwhelming to know which, if any, to choose. We'll help you sort through these choices and learn what to look for in a curriculum package.

Design Your Own
  What do you do if you've tried curriculum after curriculum, spending time and money, only to find out that neither you nor your children like or thrive on them? The answer may be to design your own curriculum. It is not as daunting as it may sound. Here are some resources to help you find the right materials for your family.

Unit Studies
  Unit studies are a way to integrate many subjects into one topical unit, using one idea, subject, or topic to explore different approaches to study. In general, a topic is chosen and is studied, learning history, science, math, writing, reading, and other subjects while exploring the single topic. Unit studies work well for multi-age homeschoolers, for those looking for a creative way to learn, and for anyone who want real hands-on, real-world learning.

Literature Based Curricula
  All learning does not need to come through a textbook. In fact, using the world of books, especially "living books," will excite interest in your childen, will bring history alive, and can awaken them to new perspectives and ways of learning.

Language Arts Curricula

Math Curricula

History Curricula

Classically Eclectic
This loop was created for homeschoolers interested in presenting school materials, real books, and/or purchased curriculum in a manner consistent with Classical Education philosophy. Specifically, Classical Education refers to educational models (such as the Trivium) described by Laura Berquist, the Bluedorns, Dorothy Sayers, Doug Wilson, Jessie Wise, Susan Wise Bauer, and others, in which material is presented to children according to their stage of development (i.e., Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric stages). The purpose of this loop is practical in nature: to share resource suggestions, reviews, schedules, ideas, and encouragement, in order to help one another provide Classical Education within the homeschool environment.
