Individual Course Offerings (a la carte):

 

Studies in English Grammar and Composition
(for the proper keeping of sustaining knowledge)

 

      From a Charlotte Mason perspective, essays flow naturally from the mind that has been engaged with living books for several years already. The transition can be tricky, however. In this course, we will begin with detailed narration and from there transition into analyzing short texts. We will write poems and stories, dialogue, and description.

Weekly lessons will include Studied Dictation, Copywork, learning to keep a Commonplace Book, a Book of Centuries, a Nature Study Notebook, and an Enquire Within. This class will require some work at home: daily copywork, daily study of one single passage for weekly dictation, and work on biweekly short essays/narration.

This class will include: Grammar, Spelling, Composition, Critical Thinking, Creative Writing, Literature, Poetry, Handwriting, Punctuation, and Capitalization.


For ages 9 and up with exceptions on a case by case basis


Level I: Beginning Written Narration and flowing into writing paragraphs and poems
Level II: Advancing beyond basic formats into essays and stories

Taught by Megan Hoyt, children's book author and certified teacher with 24 years teaching/writing experience.


$85 per 10-week semester
