     Designed to meet the needs of families transitioning to Memoria Press from other educational pathways, this curriculum manual incorporates the first half of D'Aulaire’s Greek Myths, Latina Christiana, States & Capitals, Christian Studies I, and English Grammar Recitation I which are started in grade 3 and completed in grade 4. While the pacing may be faster than your current program, families may find it helpful to start grade 4 earlier than your other children to ease the transition or allow two weeks to complete the 1-2 weeks of assignments. Allowing an extra week is only temporary to help the student transition, with the goal of following the schedule as written as quickly as possible. pb. ~ Deanne

    This text is by the same author and follows the same standards and format as Traditional Logic. Basically, it is a guided tour through Aristotle's Rhetoric, and you will need a copy of that book to complete the course. It covers the first two books of Aristotle's thoughts on writing and oratory, basically concerning the speaker and the audience. Those familiar with Aristotle will know that he valued content and quality of writing more than technique, and this study reflects that philosophy. It should be noted that this is not an introductory course on writing, but is meant to refine those skills that students should already have, for the specific purpose of persuasion. The book is well laid out and is designed so that students can be taught even by those with little experience with this topic. The course is designed to be consumable and will lead students every step of the way through a study on rhetoric over the course of a year. Tips on how teachers can grade the work and keep students accountable are included in the book. The first part of the course covers Book One of Aristotle's Rhetoric: "Rhetoric as it Concerns the Speaker". It starts with lessons on the scope and purpose of rhetoric and the definition and division of rhetoric. The rest of the speaker section is then divided into political, ceremonial, and forensic rhetoric, with several lessons per topic. The second part of the book then covers Book Two of Aristotle's Rhetoric: "Rhetoric as it Concerns the Audience". It then gives a basic introduction to Aristotle's views on the subject and gives lessons covering Pathos, Ethos, and Logos. The text includes several ways to test students and helps them to thoroughly review and understand the content. Reading Comprehension Questions are the main part of the course and are designed to help students glean as much from Aristotle's Rhetoric as possible by completing short answer questions. Evaluating Writing Assignments require that the student not only know what Aristotle said, but assess it on the basis of their own assumptions, which may differ from Aristotle's. Weekly Research and Writing Assignments are designed to apply the lessons the student has learned. Reading Lessons are made up of questions based on Mortimer Adler's How to Read a Book, which are designed to help the student fully understand what, how, and why Aristotle says what he does. Logic and Latin Review Questions are review questions related to Traditional Logic. Though that book is not a prerequisite for this course and these questions can be skipped, the author does recommend completing that before beginning this. Finally, there are Case Study Analyses focusing on four speeches, which are classic examples of the three kinds of speeches discussed by Aristotle. Each case study is accompanied by questions relevant to the section of Aristotle just covered. These are designed as models for the students to imitate in their own persuasive discourse. The user-friendly format and multiple-aspects of reviewing make this a very complete review and guide for Aristotle's Rhetoric. A Teacher Key can be purchased separately and provides detailed answers for the lessons and exercises. ~ Rachel S.

Fast-paced and requiring an ample amount of forethought and carefulness, this game would be excellent for chess aficionados or logic puzzle lovers alike. ~ Mark

    Traditional studies of philosophy often bog me down. I struggle juggling the terms and different schools of thought. But this book overviews 3 centuries of philosophy’s big ideas in a playful, easy-to-grasp format. The presentation is chronological, grouped by schools of thought, and outlines key ideas of major philosophers. The almost tabloid-like format shares the meaty ideas in bite-sized pieces interwoven with side notes and 2-toned drawings. Although not written from a Christian or even religious perspective, the author spends one chapter discussing the influence major religions have had on philosophy. As the author states in his preface, “philosophy without an engagement with Judeo-Christian thought only takes thought—and life more generally—so far.” A fine introduction to philosophy by Dover publishing. Author’s revision of his 1999 edition. 6” x 9”, 225 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    A Thomas Jefferson Education (a.k.a. Leadership Education) approaches education from a startlingly different direction. Utilizing classic literature and individual mentors, it’s a process of preparing for life by participating in lots of discussion, simulations, writing, public speaking, and exercising leadership skills. It maintains that logic, reason and good analytical thinking along with deep caring and passion can improve the world. An about-face and twenty paces away from a traditional high school education, it takes courage and vision to start down this path. Written directly to teens, this companion to other TJEd books outlines a reading list, a to-do project list, and motivational reasons behind it all. Consider this a MUST READ! 147 pgs, pb Janice

    The philosophy of the Singapore Math Approach eludes many, but this book breaks it down into bite-sized, understandable pieces so that you can teach your child the math basics in a logical conceptual manner.

    This book explains that math should be taught using the C-P-A Approach – concrete, pictorial, and abstract. Concrete employs manipulatives, pictorial uses visuals or drawings, and lastly, abstract uses math symbols. The idea is that a child cannot do math with symbols until they have adequately worked through the concrete and pictorial methods of doing math. For example, a child will work with blocks or cubes to do basic addition, then use pictures on a page or draw pictures to represent the numbers, then they are ready to do addition problems using the + and = symbols.

    This 122-page book is divided into four chapters, after explaining the philosophy behind the approach. Each chapter deals with the four basic functions – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Within each chapter, activities are presented according to the suggested sequence of stages of the Singapore strategy. For example, the stages of addition are number bonds, decomposing numbers, left-to-right addition, place value disks and charts, vertical addition, and traditional addition. By working through stages in the proper sequence, students will have a better understanding of the function and will master it more quickly.

    The author suggests there are a few manipulatives that will be needed for the activities in this book – place value strips, place value discs, place value charts, number bond cards, part-whole cards, decimal tiles, and decimal strips. She explains how they will be used and even offers suggestions for making your own.

    If you are one of those who have been scared off by the Singapore Approach, this book might alleviate some of the fear. Pretty easy to understand and apply and could be used easily with any curriculum as you try to explain mathematical functions to your children. pb. ~ Donna

    This book by Gilbert Bilezikian may be viewed as controversial by Christians who support the "traditional" roles of men and women, but his reliance on Scripture and biblical research will provide food for thought to even the strictest traditionalist. By examining the Scriptures as a whole from Creation to the Fall to the Old and New Testament views of women, the author argues for complete equality between men and women in the home and in the church. He points out how suppressing the gifts of women damages human relationships as well as the effectiveness of the church, and he uses the Bible to make his points valid. The book is fairly easy to follow, with no complex terminology or logic, just passages from the Bible and straightforward explanations and arguments. The book also shows how the traditional roles of men and women have been formed and points out the poor logic that was used to push the thought of the superiority of men. The back of the book contains an extensive study guide/exercise section that can be completed individually or in a group which prompts readers to truly explore the Scriptures and see for themselves what the Bible says about equality and the roles of men and women. In efforts to understand what the Bible really says about the responsibilities and character of women, this is an important book for both men and women to read. 270 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

      Written for homeschoolers by Rebecca Celsor, The Write Foundation Level 1 Sentence to Paragraph curriculum is not flashy but is certainly deep and incorporates biblical content. Lessons give step-by-step teaching instruction which help you teach your student how to be an independent writer. Emphasis is placed on the writing process, writing structure, and word usage (basic grammar and figures of speech). This level quickly advances from writing descriptive sentences to writing creative and informative paragraphs by teaching how to use the fundamentals of brainstorming, outlining, drafting and editing. Originally these lessons were designed for those who struggle with or dislike writing but this program works well for all students.  This curriculum can easily be used with 1-2 students or in a co-op setting.

      The basic daily lesson format is organized into 3 main areas: sentence structure (practicing grammar, developing sentences, vocabulary and figures of speech); paragraph and essay writing; and poetry instruction (to build vocabulary, grammar, and figures of speech within writing instruction context). The course provides 30 lessons guiding the student from sentence writing to 2-paragraph writings. Two schedules (5-day or 10-day per lesson options, from 30 min to 1.5 hours daily) complete the course in either one or two years.


      The teacher and students are equally engaged in the step-by-step process. All information needed to present each lesson is provided in the spiral teacher instruction manuals which include teaching instructions and Teacher Presentations (TP) which are examples and suggestions to help present the lessons. During the lesson, students discuss ideas with the teacher as the teacher models and highlights items using the Teacher Presentation (TP) information and student input while students copy and highlight on worksheets. Students practice grammar skills through sentence and poetry writing practice and through parts of speech games. The course includes poetry writing as a method of mastering language skills. Literature reading is also strongly recommended. Students choose from a provided list of books with pre-assigned points from 4 to 24 (based on challenge level); students read a minimum of 48 points worth per semester. This system provides variety and encourages students to read frequently. A final recommended component is Mind Benders Book 3 (#003026) to be used to train students to think logically.

      The driving force of the course is contained in the two spiral-bound Teacher Instruction manuals. Teaching instructions and Teacher Presentation (TP) information of examples and suggestions needed to present the lessons, is provided in the spiral-bound Teacher Instruction manuals. The instructions and Teacher Presentation information (TP) in the lessons guide you step-by-step in the daily lessons and show examples and suggestions for the materials discussed. The teaching format is more of a traditional teacher-guiding-the-students format. You, the teacher, will guide the discussion about different writing skills: sentence writing, paragraph writing, and poetry writing. As the students brainstorm or suggest possible answers, you explain the lesson material visually by writing possible answers on a white board or paper while students copy onto the student worksheets. The program allows flexibility. Also, optional technology is provided in the Digital Additional Resources to present each lesson on the computer. The online TP files are interactive, allowing the teacher to type information directly onto the daily lesson's Teacher Presentation (TP) on the computer as the teacher and student discuss and the student copies onto the student worksheets (WS). This original “tech design” requires a computer with Adobe Reader. Internet and Adobe Reader are required to access the digital daily Teacher Presentation (TP) pages. Not techie? Don’t be dismayed! This element is not required or even necessary to teach the course in either a co-op or a typical home setting: good ol’ paper or white board will suffice. With purchase of this product, you'll receive access to the digital and interactive resources through the publisher, The Write Foundation. If you desire the digital full-page Teacher Presentation (TP) lesson materials for teaching using the computer, this material must be downloaded from the publisher. Information is included in the Printed Additional Resources on how to get the Digital Additional Resources. The instructions also give you good direction in grading. Grading rubrics are provided for all student assignments.  A thorough explanation of grading, rubrics for each of the 29 lessons, rubrics for poetry, and how to compile a final grade is provided. The course grade will consist of three portions: composition, poetry, and literature. However, the publisher states that other books could be substituted.

      With this writing curriculum you'll receive one (1) set of student worksheets, two spiral bound Teacher Instructions (Lessons 1-15 and Lessons 16-30), and some Printed Additional Resources. Consumable Student Worksheets (about 230 pages) for one student come printed on 3-hole punched paper to be stored in a 3-ring binder (not provided). More student worksheets may be purchased on TheWriteFoundation.org for multiple students. Directions to more educational games and grading rubrics are included in the Printed Additional Resources. Students will also need a thesaurus, dictionary and highlighters in 6 different colors (pink, blue, yellow, green, orange, and purple). A list of student materials is provided in the Printed Additional Resources. ~ Ruth
