Curriculum Choices & Resources

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.
