". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Homeschool Literature

We had our second meeting of homeschool literature class today. Last year we studied a variety of works from different genres--short stories, poetry, novels, and plays--giving attention to the literary characteristics of each. This year we are doing a whirlwind survey of world literature. Check with me at the end of the year to see how far we got.

Here from left to right are Chris, Trevor, Shiloh (Teacher's Pet), Evan (Teacher's Helper), Caitlin, Stephanie, and Nicole. Talk about a dream class. Any teacher in the world would be thrilled to have these intelligent, pleasant faces looking back from his or her classroom.

Here's another shot with the teacher (yours truly) taking Evan's place (and by the way, Evan took this one--not bad for a 4-year-old, huh?)

I think we're going to have another great year.

I can tell that the person who took the second picture was a lot shorter! :) Otherwise, nice work!

He definitely has an exceptionally steady camera hand. I have it from a reliable source that the class is a good challenge for at least one of the pictured people. :)

This is the type of class I'd love for my kids to have when they are older. I can't wait to see what works you cover.
