ALL SUBJECTS COVERED WHILE ALSO LEARNING A LIFE SKILL, CAREER, AND MORE!
INTERDISCIPLINARY & CROSS-CURRICULAR LEARNING…
UNITS COVER THE ENTIRE FAMILY AT ONCE!
(PRE-READER TO ADULT)
THERE ARE NO TEACHER’S GUIDES. THE PARENTS LEARN WITH THEIR CHILDREN!
NO PREP REQUIRED! IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE OPEN-AND-GO AND CHARLOTTE MASON INSPIRATION!
MADE WITH DADS IN MIND
BUSY, WORKING PARENT WHO WANTS TO JOIN IN? WE MADE THIS SPECIFICALLY WITH YOU IN MIND…
Real experts provide the insight; the curriculum guides the experience; the family creates the bond.
What is it?
Job shadowing, skills development, life enhancement from home (that also covers your school subjects)… for pre-reader to adult. This is something that has never existed before.
Is it Core or Extracurricular?
Use these units as your family’s core curriculum, as it includes everything except math —OR–
Pair it with other core curriculum (and use it as an extracurricular for only 30 minutes per session, so even a busy, working parent can join in)
These are custom designed to be used by every family style out there. They are designed for university-aspiring high school students, those who have different aspirations, or even elementary students!
…Each unit is designed with flexible ending points and Core Connections so you can do it either way! See our Pamphlet which gives an overview of each unit, including subject focus! See our HOW TO video for how it looks in action! Or, see our high school credits page to see how high school students use it!
What ages is it for?
Designed for the whole family to use together (all ages).
The units are tiered and color-coded, so each person learns at his or her own age level, while still completing the lesson together as a family (no bouncing around with multiple children!)
No teacher’s guide! Adults learn alongside their children (and sometimes even purchase these units for themselves). Everybody has their own guidebook to learn together at the same time (all leveled guidebooks are included in every purchase and are uniquely color coded)
Do I have to print?
No printing necessary! We designed these so you could view electronically and write in blank notebooks as you go along, to save on ink and become more familiar with a real-world setup (note-taking, etc.)!
What is the teaching style?
Each unit includes an experiential style of teaching (little to no prep), while also incorporating all styles of learning. It is also OPEN-AND-GO because it was made specifically with busy, working parents in mind. We do not use worksheet-based learning but focus on note-taking (as in higher education), dictation, and learning through application. See more on why by clicking HERE.
Units are created after we job/skill shadow experts or professionals specific to the skill or trade (or life experience)
We aren’t just covering school subjects; we are covering school subjects while also teaching life skills, careers, and more.
We address all learning styles: auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, visual, etc…
How long is it?
Full units have ~12 lessons
This equals approximately 3 weeks for the extracurricular option
This equals approximately 3 – 6 weeks for those using it as their core curriculum
How do I make it work for core curriculum?
Our newer units have courtesy “Core Connections” for interdisciplinary teaching and cross-curricular implementation such as you see encouraged at Ivy League universities. This is for families who desire to use the unit to cover all school subjects equally (except math). See HERE for more on Core Connections or HERE for how many high school credits it is. These are included for free, as a courtesy!
How can “Dad” get involved if desired?
These unit studies are also the PERFECT way to allow “Dad” to get involved, if desired (not required). Everything is prepared! Just OPEN AND GO, and allow the bonding and learning to begin (see our “Made for Dads” page).
What comes with the downloads?
Upon purchase, you receive guidebooks to cover all ages. You can immediately download, use on any device (or print, if desired) and keep forever!
#1: The hard stuff is done by us. We do the in-person interviewing, the hands-on job or skill shadowing; we ask the professionals, learn their secrets, and cover the expense to get inside the minds of experts before we develop the units…
#2: Utilizing a combination of Charlotte Mason based techniques, we take everything mentioned in point #1 and very specifically develop our open-and-go units for you and your child(ren) utilizing multiple teaching styles…
#3: All guidebooks for all age groups correspond but are color codedfor deeper learning based on age level. The parents learn right alongside the children!
#4: And, finally, we place everything on the foundation of Christ. If you are not a Christian family, you can definitely get some benefits of the curriculum even if you decide not to apply the FAITH TALK sections. We do hope you will give them a try though. Regardless, grab up a unit and start exploring with your child!
