"I am "surrounded" by people who participate in an Options - program - one day a week of free classes provided by the school district. It has left me with a little difficulty remembering why I home school - I just know I would waver if it wasn't for your classes. The children both said that they do not want any one else to teach them Literature."

The Premise: Teen learners know much more than they realize – they just need instruction to realize what they know and/or to recognize when/how to access and use their existing knowledge.

The Process: Students work through a series of 12 lessons, each involving from 15 to 22 Greek morphemes, and each building on prior lessons. Each lesson includes learning activities of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, as well as practice in using contextual clues reading strategies. Lessons engage all three brain pathways: visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic. Creative lesson reviews and student-made study cards help firmly fix knowledge in memory.

 

The Program: Unlike typical vocabulary programs involving big words and big definitions, this program involves small word parts and small definitions, and then using those small word parts to analyze words and to construct word meanings. Learners find this approach more challenging, more fun, and more effective in producing lasting results
