Creative Drama 1st-5th

Description:

The focus of this class is to introduce students to basic theatrical skills through the medium of storytelling.  The class will be divided into 3 segments each class period:  We will look at the history of storytelling and its role in culture, basic theatrical terminology, stage direction, and components of the stage.    I will then illustrate theatrical skills to the students during story time.   The student will follow by then practicing the skills of characterization, pronunciation, facial expression, movement, and projection through their own class presentations.   During this time they will learn listening skills and will be given constructive tips by the instructor following their presentations.  The students will present their stories at the end of the semester to our nursery students, as well as participating in the Fall program.   We will also do a segment to prepare them for auditions.  The goal for this class is for the students to grow in confidence in the area of public presentation and if it is the goal of the student and parents, to be more prepared to participate in theatrical productions in their community.

This class is for grades 1-5.

Drama Lite/Reader's Theater 6th-12th

Description:

Reader's Theater is a genre of theater which allows actors to focus on the dramatic interpretation of a piece (using minimal, if any, costumes or props), without the use of sets or the need to memorize lines.

In this class, we will examine and dramatize several selections from great literature (titles TBD). Our focus will be on developing some of the most basic, but very crucial elements of good acting, such as emotional expression, vocal projection, clarity of speech and interpretation of character.  Some use of dialects/accents will also be explored.

Every class participant will have lines to perform, but these will not require memorization, as this type of theater involves well-rehearsed reading from scripts.  Students will study the literary selections and rehearse their parts during our weekly class meetings, but some minimal, weekly at-home rehearsal  will also be required.  The semester will culminate with a performance at the CHFM fall program.

No prior theater experience is necessary for participation in this class.

This class is for grades 6-12.

Practice. Practice.  And we’ll give the ACT/SAT essay form a try or two.  Our writing will be “spiced up,” embellished with analogies, similes, and metaphors and metalepses, polyptoton, and other schemes and tropes.  Students will come to class each week ready to read the short essay that they have written and eager to hear the positive feedback and constructive criticism from their teacher and peers.

Five in a Row 1st-3rd

Children will enjoy reading great quality books while learning more about math, science, geography, literary features and art!  My hope is that each child will want to read outside of the classroom while we continue to study each Five in a Row story and learn more about things like central themes, characters, and plot development.

IEW 6th-8th

Description:

Does your child struggle to get a single sentence on the page when you give him a writing assignment? Or when asked for a summary, does your child respond with a 10-page paragraph? Young writers need help with both what to say and how to say it, and Andrew Pudewa’s Institute for Excellence in Writing method provides an objective structure with which to guide students as they learn to write. In this year-long course, students will learn pre-writing skills such as note-taking, outlining, and brainstorming. They will practice composition structures including paragraphs, fiction and non-fiction summaries, reports, creative writing, formal essays, and book or movie critiques. They will also learn important writing skills such as effective word choice, sentence variety, and organization. For students who took IEW with me in 2016-17, I will use all new source texts for the 2017-18 class, but we will work through the 9 IEW units again with pacing similar to last year’s class.

What you can expect from the co-op instructor:

  • a weekly homework calendar with instructions as a recommended plan for pacing the homework throughout your week
  • a clear checklist and point system so that students know how to be successful on assignments
  • weekly email reports from the teacher with a brief summary of what we did in class and hints for helping your student with homework
  • firm deadlines to motivate students to complete weekly goals
  • increasing challenge throughout the year: we will start with  2 single-paragraph assignments per week and gradually increase to 5-paragraph assignments
  • faithful implementation of the IEW instructional method
  • weekly grading of student work along with mid-term and final grade reports each semester
  • teacher is available to help with questions and needs via text, email, and phone

Home teacher responsibilities:

  • keep your student accountable to complete daily and weekly work (homework calendar should make this easy—just get him going each day and he should be able to work pretty independently)
  • help your student with editing compositions for spelling, grammar, and mechanics issues (instructor’s grading will focus on content, organization, and completion of IEW elements of style)
  • home teachers may modify assignments according to student needs, for instance, in the case of learning disabilities
  • communicate any questions, problems, concerns, and suggestions to the instructor

Other information you may want to know:

1. All formal IEW assignments must be typed. If your student is not accustomed to this, please have him practice a bit this summer with a program that teaches the “home keys.” I have found that a student’s typing ability improves dramatically just by typing weekly writing assignments. Typing will also make editing much easier. Other assignments, such as outlines and brainstorming activities, may be handwritten.

2. Parent involvement is required for this class, particularly if your child struggles with writing. I am happy to be a “consultant” in this and will gladly take phone calls to discuss issues. I have experience working with both fluent writers as well as dyslexic students.

This class is for grades 6-8 and is a year-long class.

Intermediate Science 4th-6th

Description:

This fall, Intermediate Science will explore just how “fearfully and wonderfully” we are made as we explore the amazing intricacies of the human body.  Working through the different systems of the body, the class will use hands on experiments and activities to gain a better understanding of how the body works and all the parts are interrelated. Since this class is for older elementary aged children, there is minimal writing and introduction and use of the scientific method.   There are endless fun things to do with this topic, so join us for an adventure from the inside out!

This class is intended for grades 4-6.

Intro to Chemistry & Physics 8th-10th

Description:

This class is designed to be a stepping stone into harder and more math dependant sciences students will encounter in high school, and will spend half the year on chemistry topics and half on physics.   It can also be used to fulfill high school science credit for students who are not science oriented.  The class will use BJU Press’s Physical Science text, and most certainly can be used to fulfill a physical science high school credit; however, other material will be used to build skills that will help students be successful in harder sciences.  Some of these topics will include algebraic manipulation of equations, metric and English conversions, reading of scientific graphs and charts, critical thinking skills applied to science word problems, and the use of the scientific method in both experiments and lab write ups.  Although this might sound daunting, it will be taught in a consistent, step-by-step, encouraging manner preparing the student for an academic undertaking of other science classes.  Students will also gain experience in note taking, study skills and time management as they learn to prepare and organize for class.   Creation science will be an underlying theme that is emphasized as often as possible.  In the end, this class will intermingle a fun, learning experience with a pursuit of some higher level thinking skills.

This class is for grades 8-10 and is a year-long class.

Literature Circles 4th-5th

Description:

Literature Circles provides students with the opportunity to interact with one another in a small group setting and engage in discussion that is centered on a common chapter book.  Students will be placed in groups based on their book choice.  They will increase their knowledge of literary elements and sharpen their reading skills as they read an assigned section in their group’s book and complete a "job" to share each week.  Students will also participate in teacher directed mini-lessons throughout the semester that will focus on reading skills and improving group discussion.  The primary goal, however, is to give students the chance to get excited about reading and discussing their books with their peers!

Students will be responsible to read their assigned section at home each week.  The remainder of the work will be completed in class.

I have used a Literature Circles framework in classrooms at the 2nd through 5th grade levels and have found it to be a great asset to any reading curriculum.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give homeschool students a place to read and share with other children their own age!

This class is for grades 4-5.

Public Speaking 9th-12th

Description:

We can and we must be able to give an account for the hope that lies within us.  We have been given the ability to speak and what more important skill is there, than to learn to speak well in front of others and to share the gospel. This class is based on a wonderful curriculum put out by Communicators for Christ called Beginning Public Speaking.  Students will practice speaking in front of others (something we can’t practice at home very well) by doing informative speeches, impromptu, and recitation to name a few.  This will be a wonderful opportunity for your student to learn or improve their ability to communicate.

Benefits to Students

  • Increases understanding of technical concepts and speaking principles
  • Provides real-world experience within the classroom.
  • Encourages abstract thought, self-directed learning, and problem solving
  • Promotes participation and ability to take coaching and advice from others.
  • Produces confidence in being in front of others.

This class is for grades 9-12.

Spanish 1 7th-12th

Description:

Spanish 1, (part I) is a 16 weeks class for 7th-12th graders. Previous Spanish classes can be helpful for new students, but they are not necessary or required at all. We will start from scratch and move up. Spanish I (part I) introduces the students to basic vocabulary, personal pronouns, descriptive adjectives, feelings, professions, among others.  They will be introduced to the Present tense of some regular verbs and few irregular yet useful verbs. In Spanish, understanding the verb “to be”=”ser” & “estar” is very important and can be a little bit confusing.  This semester is important for the understanding of when and how to use it. A more specific syllabus will be provided at beginning of the semester but you can call me or e-mail if you have specific questions or concerns.

This class is for grades 7-12 and is a 16 week year long class.

Description:

Do you use your hands a lot when you talk?  Do you use lots of facial expressions when trying to get a point across?  Wouldn’t it be cool if people could understand you while you did those things?  Well, guess what, you’ve come to the right place!  “Talking Hands: Beginning Sign Language” will teach beginning signs in order to learn how to communicate simple sentences.  These signs will be discussing your family, clothes, the weather, the alphabet, numbers, food and more!  The Sign Language that will be taught in this class is “SEE” or Signed Exact English, which is where every word in English can be translated into a sign.  Some basic history about the Deaf Community and culture in America will be discussed over the semester as well. 

(The reason for the homework scale being 4-5 is because students WILL need to practice their signs multiple times a week.  Therefore the scale is placed that high due to the need to practice, not the difficulty of the material).    

This class is for grades 6-12.

Trig/Pre-Calc 8th-12th

Description:

This course will equip students for college calculus.  Lessons will emphasize functions, graphing, conic sections, polar graphs, complex numbers, matrix algebra, sequences and series, trigonometry, limits, and an introduction to calculus. 

The pre-requisite for this class is Algebra 2.  A number of the topics covered in this course were introduced in Algebra 2. 

We will be using the Bob Jones Precalculus , 1st edition book for this course.  I am choosing not to use Saxon Advanced Math for a number of reasons.  1) There is a lot of geometry at the beginning of the book that we won’t have time to cover.  2) There are additional algebra topics that need to be covered to be successful in calculus.  3)  Now is a good time to transition to a more traditional math text. 

Taking a CLEP test for College Algebra and Trigonometry would verify to a college that a student is prepared for calculus.  Passing a CLEP exam would also give students math credits at a number of universities. For some students, College Algebra will be the final math class a student needs, but for others, it is the launching point for their college math classes. 

This class is for grades 8-12 and is a year-long class.
