Everyone knows Cathy Duffy is often called the “end-all, be-all” of homeschool curriculum, since she’s been doing it for 40 years!  We are so grateful she chose to review and detail our curriculum!  Here are some of the AMAZING nuggets we pulled from her remarks, as can be found on her website

– “I found the units that I examined for this review to be very interesting, often containing information new to me…”

– “Each lesson begins with information presented in a living book format–like conversations or storytelling rather than a textbook.”

– “The open-and-go design of Campfire Curriculums makes it easy for dads to be involved.”

– “There’s an adventurous spirit behind these studies.”

– “Think Tank [included in each lesson] raises problematic ethical issues and personal applications that are likely to provoke great discussions…”

– “Scattered in various places within the lessons are ‘Cool Teacher Moments,’ which are simple experiments, demonstrations, or activities designed to grab the interest of students…”

– “The information is presented in a very engaging fashion with stories, thought-provoking questions, and fascinating facts.  Instead of completing worksheets, students respond with discussion, research, writing, projects, and presentations (including public speaking).”

– “For language arts, each unit study focuses primarily on one or a few area.  For instance, the primary focus of Through the Eyes of A Storm Chaser and Meteorologist is public speaking.  In the Season of Independence Day, literature-based writing, grammar, and copywork all receive attention.  And Through the Eyes of A Volcanologist teaches how to write a persuasive essay…”

– “Developing self sufficiency is another recurring theme that shows up in some of the studies…”

– “Campfire Curriculums offer unusual topics in a format that allows the whole family, including dads, to learn together…”
