Your Child Will Be Academically Ready for Adulthood After 12 Years Spent With This Program
This program, when finished, will take children from kindergarten through 12th grade. At the end of this program, your child will be ready for making adult decisions: college, business, and service.
I cannot prove this yet. The program does not exist yet. But I have the academic and business background to deliver on this, plus the vision required to complete this project, with your help, teachers' help, and students' help. Now, if God will keep me alive and fubctional. . . .
This program is self-taught above the first-grade level. This means that your child will not be coming to you with questions, assuming that you stick to the program. The child is taught to be academically self-reliant.
The teaching model is Dr. Arthur Robinson's excellent program, the Robinson Curriculum, which is a bargain at $200, once, per family. He and I agree on this issue: a self-taught student is a student who has mastered critical thinking, self-discipline, and independence.
This site's program differs from his in several ways. First, there is video. YouTube and video hosting sites did not exist when he developed his program. Second, this site is explicitly and self-consciously based on a specific Christian worldview. Third, there are tutorials by and for students. This offers tutoring opportunities for students -- a major learning experience. Fourth, this site is free. But spending $200 on his curriculum is still a good investment.
This program will continue to grow for as long as creative teachers continue to participate. My goal is to offer multiple curriculum tracks. One size doesn't fit all. Different students have different needs, capacities, and skills. There will be different literature reading tracks for boys and girls, 4th grade to 8th grade. My goal is to offer three separate tracks for high school: small business, humanities/social science, and math/science.
Parents can monitor what is going on at all times. They can read the materials, monitor the forums, and share ideas with other parents on the forums for parents. This site is heavy on forums.
This site starts with the early grades and works up, year by year.
