    Default Global Perspective Studies

    I came across this curriculum the other day from member Farrar on here. Thought I would post a link to it since she does not seem to be posting on here currently to blow her own trumpet. It looks interesting.

    I bought this right when it came out and have been thumbing through it. It is what I thought I'd have to create myself - and dreading - so I'm excited!

    (Tries peeking over RTBs shoulder to get a good look at it.)

    Farrar always seems so sensible and attentive to the needs of the individual, I cant imagine it would be bad!

    Is she avoiding here because of the non-secular advertisers and site response?

    I am looking forward to trying Global Perspective Studies if we are still homeschooling then. I just enrolled DD for their summer mystery book club, it looks fun too.

    You are not on FB, right AM? Her FB group is full of really good information - maybe that is where she hangs out. I quit FB, but it might be the only thing I miss about it.

    I still have not decided if I will use it next year, or the following. Next year will be 1/2 high school classes for us. DS is an August baby, and there are a few skills I'd like to polish up before we are 100% high school classes.

    Oh NZ - report back on the class. All the classes look fun and unique.

    Sadly the summer book club DD was enrolled in just got cancelled as they did not have enough registrations. I hope they have more success with their courses in the future as they look great.

    Oh bummer. Do you think you'll do the Fall (US)?

    Re. Fall classes: maybe, I will definitely be looking to see what they are and what the dates are. I think Fall would still fit in with the NZ school year. we do school right up to mid-Dec and the break for about 6 weeks until the new school year starts in Feb.
