     Love the idea of unschooling, but struggle to find a balance between too much unproductive time and a strictly scheduled day? This resource may provide the perfect balance. Subtitled, “The Beginner’s Journal”, this animal and farm themed curriculum gently guides learning in several areas including reading, handwriting, logic, spelling, classic literature and music, mathematics including practice in addition, subtraction, and multiplication, creative writing, and more.

      Due to the open-ended nature of this course, you will notice repetition in many of the activity pages. For example, the backyard science/nature walk study pages, animals of the world, and reading time pages allow children to document varied observations and studies. Many struggling learners thrive on familiarity, which helps create a fun learning experience for struggling or younger students. Parents will need to assist their children in choosing topics of study, completion of some activities and securing additional, recommended resources.

      Recommended educational resources include a computer with your own Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music CDs, a variety of educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math-U-See are suggested). Necessary school supplies include pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler. Assorted dyslexia games from the author’s Series A and B are included, and the Dyslexie font is utilized. Author states a child may work in this book up to 3 hours daily for 6 weeks, with 30 minutes of computer time 3 days per week, although flexibility allows you to fit to your family’s needs. Reproducible for children in your household. Black and white graphics. SC. 294 pgs. ~Deanne

    The statistics are frightening: 5.4 million children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD according to the CDC and diagnosed cases are increasing at an alarming rate - nearly 6% per year. But this is not the only issue plaguing our children today. Many of them also battle focusing issues which may be overlooked in light of their overwhelming attention problems or behavior issues. Regardless of the picture presented, as parents we really want to know if our children's struggles stem from biological or psychological problems (or a combination of both), and what resources are available to equip us to help them.

    Drawing from multiple sources including research, input from various physicians and her own personal experience, Dianne Craft takes us on a fast-paced journey into the realm of alternative natural supplements in an effort to better care for children with attention, focusing and behavior issues.

    Working from the core belief that the body desires to be healthy and can heal itself with the proper nutrients, Dianne presents an incremental, eight-week nutritional supplement plan along with rationales, common signs of deficiencies and additional recommended resources. These supplements are not necessarily replacements for medication and families should consult with their personal physician before implementing the suggested regimen of supplements. Dianne puts forth that many children are able to reduce prescribed psychotropic meds as the body heals. Although the information presented here is not designed to replace your primary care physician, if you are one of many families who have not begun prescription therapy to treat your child's focus/attention/behavior issues, you may find the natural therapies presented to be effective in reducing the troubling symptoms. Audio CD with study notes and instruction card for nutritional intervention. 2 ½ hours. Deanne

    What a treasure! I'm mourning the fact that I no longer have students in my home. I would love to go through this course with them. If there was anything even remotely like it "back then," I was unaware of it. This course combines music history (learning about composers) with music appreciation (learning about their music) and shows how they interweave with as well as impact the intricate fabric of western culture. The scope of the course is breathtaking a survey of 300 years (right before 1600 to the edge of WWI) of Western Music and Arts. The author, Carol Reynolds, is a well-loved professor of music history who supplies students with an abundance of primary and secondary sources and encourages her students to learn from them. The course she's provided is professionally well-done, comprehensive in its depth and scope, amazing in its use of musicians and cultural backdrops and, in short, magnificent. In her words, "the history of music makes sense only when it is combined with the history of science, politics, conquests, religious movements, and the other arts. . . . . Music has the ability to enlighten, enliven, and enshrine in our memory the interaction of history, science, and art."

    Just to whet your appetite, here's what's provided in the unit on Mozart: a lecture that includes pictures from the Big Band era and rock and roll (to illustrate the similarity in terms of musical change between the Baroque and the following period), examples of music played on a piano that merge into orchestral presentations, pictures of political figures, art, architecture, places, clothing, a "sub-lecture" that shows how a grand piano works, vocabulary defined, dozens of musical examples. Through all of this, Mrs. Reynolds' sweeping commentary takes us from Mozart throughout Europe and even colonial America showing us relationships and a continual historical perspective. While the workbook provides "notes" (dates, places, definitions, etc.), the student will need to pay attention to the lecture in order to fill in all the blanks. Questions involve extrapolation from the lecture rather than just a regurgitation of it. The lecture introduces many musical compositions; listening to required and recommended works will provide others, but it's expected that the student continues to learn by drawing on provided internet sources.

    There are 17 units:

    • Using music history to unlock western culture
    • Music entwined with great events in western history
    • Technology, terminology, and cultural perspective
    • Fanfare and power: the court of Louis XIV
    • Sweeping away the Renaissance into the Baroque
    • Liturgical calendar, street parties, and the new church music
    • A lively journey through the life of Johann Sebastian Bach
    • Enlightenment, classicism and the astonishing Mozart
    • In the abyss: the century struggles with unfettered imagination
    • Beethoven as hero and revolutionary
    • Salons, poetry, and the power of the song
    • A tale of four virtuosi and the birth of the tone poem
    • Nationalism and explosion of romantic opera
    • The absolutely new world of Wagner
    • Imperial Russia a cultural odyssey
    • Load up the wagons: the story of American music
    • Turning the page on western tradition with the explosion of war

    Course components include a set of DVDs (lively lectures that include "on location" film clips, interviews, and a wealth of information; professionally done) and a student Resource Book that will ultimately become a resource/reference for the student when the course is completed. Recently revised, the audio CDs that were previously included have been replaced by links on the publisher's website (www.professorcarol.com) to required and recommended musical works. The spiral-bound student Resource Book provides the student's path through the course. The pages for each unit provide a list of Key Figures and Places, Vocabulary, Notable Dates, suggestions for Listening (some of which are included on the CDs), and a listing of Websites for further research. The Putting It All Together section provides study projects for the student and the Viewing Guide provides a place for note-taking through the lecture series. Also included in the Workbook is a set of Quizzes for each unit, texts and translations for the music provided, and an answer key for both the Quizzes and the Viewing Guide pages.

    Although it doesn't say so, this course seems like it was developed with homeschoolers in mind all instruction is directed toward the student so a motivated student could work somewhat independently (although in my home, I would have wanted to be learning these things right along with my student). Easily a full high school credit in Music History/Appreciation, it might be more properly called by an old-fashioned name Humanities.

    The Teacher's Manual on CD-ROM is available separately and includes PDF files for the following: Syllabus, a unit-by-unit Course Plan, four Exams with Answer Keys, and a Listening Plan. Appendices include a Listening Selection Chart and a Listening Progress Form. Although not absolutely necessary, this does provide some nice features and gives the course a little more cohesive "feel." The publisher recommends the addition of the Teacher's Manual especially if taking the course for credit. ~ Janice
