How it works:
You bring any questions or notes you have about your children’s current or upcoming school year. Catalogs, planning sheets, envelope backs; Any starting point helps with the process. If you have a specific area of concern, feel free to give me a heads up.
We sit down and go over materials that you’re thinking of using. Do you have the time to complete them? Are they right for your student? Your family has the last call, but sometimes it’s helpful to have someone to reassure you that doing two complete Language Arts programs is neither necessary nor desirable! New in 2014: CandleStar Curriculum Library — Get up close and personal with curriculum and resources in science, language arts, foreign language, Bible, geography, mathematics… You get the idea.
“Curriculum Planning” is really a fancy name for concentrated Q&A time… I can suggest different resources or assessment strategies, help you anticipate what you’ll need to collect for your next portfolio, or assist in streamlining several students into one unified “flow.” A quick chat can be especially helpful for high schoolers who are trying to anticipate credit requirements and create a portfolio plan.
It sounds a little daunting but the cost is minimal and most of my planning clients are set within an hour or two. Their most common response? A sigh of relief and “I should have done this sooner!”
