"What a treasure of a book! Study is Hard Work is written by William Armstrong. It is a very small paperback book packed to the brim with wisdom." -- Catholichomeschool.org
Laura Berquist, of Mother of Divine Grace School, is offering a series of classes on the different stages of formation. In these live classes Laura will review the methodological goals for the class, the texts used, and how to implement both the methodological and content goals.

This will be a day of educational and fun activities designed for homeschoolers age

workshops will center on the types of communication that were used at the
lighthouse, including flags, telegraph, Morse Code and voice. Optional
activities will include an opportunity to meet and talk with the last child born
on the lighthouse grounds; to examine, touch and guess the identity of items
used in an early 20th-century household; and to climb the lighthouse tower. The
total number of students will be limited to 100, and T-shirts will not be
offered this year. Online advance registration and payment is required and will
be open as of 1 p.m. on October 4. To register, visit www.ponceinlet.org, click
