What people are saying about the online Psychology course:
7 Sisters Homeschool My 16-year old sophomore is finishing up this psychology course with the online component. She has really enjoyed the course material, and said that the videos really help to make it come alive. She said that the videos offer both examples from Vicki’s role as a professional on the field and examples of how the material relates to our everyday lives. She does the suggested activities that Vicki mentioned in her post, and said those also add depth to her learning. She thought it was worth the money we spent on adding the online component. -A.M.
Hey, ho! Look what’s new! It’s Shakespeare for One High School Semester, a self-paced ONLINE course for teens on Teachable, with Mrs. J leading the way to entertainment and learning!
The problem with High School Shakespeare courses is that they often aren’t very much fun. Well, William Shakespeare wrote to ENTERTAIN. He told brilliantly crafted stories about characters who needn’t be bound by time and place, because they are so wonderfully HUMAN. But too often, we introduce Shakespeare’s plays to our teens as complex literature to be dissected, as something difficult to be STUDIED. So, what if we honored The Bard’s wishes, and presented his work to teens in a way that could be EXPERIENCED…even ENJOYED? Well, that’s the philosophy behind Sabrina Justison’s SHAKESPEARE for One High School Semester course.
Here’s a video that will give you a feel for the course:
