Overview for 2008
1. We are reading
both Volume 5 and Volume 6 of The Original Homeschooling Series by Charlotte
M. Mason this year. You can choose to read one or both. We
will be reading Volume 6 every year, so if you don't get to it this year,
you can always join in next year. There are monthly reading assignments
for each volume starting with Volume 5. In July we will move on to
Volume 6. Record your favorite ideas/quotes and also jot down plans
for implementation in your notebook.

Guide for Christlike Service or A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching
a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-First Century. We will
be reading Leadership for Saints: A Practical Guide for Christlike Service
in January to April and A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation
of Leaders for the Twenty-First Century from May to November.
