High School Course Intro
Hello Parents of this Fall’s 9th Graders!
I am creating the first part of a prototype Christopherus high school program this Fall (2018) for 9th graders.
The program will focus on Language Arts and History and be a set program with assigned reading, recorded talks by me and back and forth individuated assignments for the students.
I do not want this to be a computer-based program and so so-called snail mail will also be used. My talks will be recorded on CDs – there will be some back and forth with the parent and a bit with the student using email but it will not form the basis of our working together.
I will only take about 12 students per semester for this work – eventually the materials we use will also be available for purchase by those homeschoolers not wishing to work with me – or those who would like to do so but who find that my class is full. Or who live outside the US and possibly Canada.
The program will only be open to folks in the US – if you are in Alaska or HI (or actually Canada for that matter) I might be open to this but there will have to be an additional charge for first class postage so we can keep to deadlines. This program will have specific opening and ending dates.
This is, in part because there will be times that I speak by phone with the student – there might also be times when I arrange conference calls for all the students to discuss our work or to give reports to the class. I want to use a conference call format and not the computer for that so I have some research to do on this (anyone who can suggest good conference call programs – not skype and not googlehangout- is warmly invited to do so!)
My goal is to offer, in 2 years time, 6-week residential programs for 11th and 12th graders in my home in WI – and those students working with me leading up to this will get priority as I will only take about 12 students for the residential programs.
At some point soon we will create a high school section of the Christopherus website and a full description of these various high school programs will be provided.
There are many more details of course (including costs) so do contact me for details! firstname.lastname@example.org
