High School American Literature

Join us as we dive into American Literature! We will be reading two books this fall semester—The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. By utilizing the accompanying Progeny Press study guides, we will be doing some in-depth study of both of these books for a total of 16 weeks (8 weeks per book). These study guides will help your child learn about vocabulary, comprehension questions, literary devices, various hands-on projects, as well as connection to biblical references. Before meeting the first day of co-op, I will assign two weeks’ worth of lessons so we have a head start on the first book. Following the last day of co-op, students will still have two weeks’ worth of the study guide to complete the semester for the second book and we may have a chance to touch base online as a class through Basecamp. Lesson plans for each week will be posted on Basecamp. Each week, we will discuss the previous week’s study guide pages. I think we will have lots of great discussion and this will be a great way for kids to interact with each other as well as be held accountable for completing their work. I plan on offering this class in the spring semester too for some studies of other great American novels.
 
Supplies Needed: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain and The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, Progeny Press study guides for both books, pencil, folder, dictionary, thesaurus
Study guides are available through https://stores.progenypress.com/high-school/ or a bit cheaper through rainbowresource.com. Thriftbooks.com has great deals on used copies of books or you may find them for almost the same price (brand new) on rainbowresource.com. *As stated in the front of these study guides, most Christian high schools would assign ¼ credit per study guide. It is up to you as a parent to determine if your child spends long enough on each book to count this as ¼ of a credit (or about 37.5 hours). If your child spends an hour a day, 5 days a week, for 8 weeks on each of these books, that is more than enough time to count as ¼ credit (and ½ credit total for the semester). I will not be grading work, so it will also be up to you as a parent to determine how to assign a grade. Answers for the study guide are included in the back of the book. 
 

Arts and Crafts

This class will be based off of The Usborne Art Treasury plus additional projects. Most classes will contain some introductory information on a famous artist, view samples of their work, and then kids will create their own work of art.
