Literature Based HS Curriculum

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Are there any books or articles that specifically talk about building a literature based curriculum. I've seen this mentioned here or there, and I would like to look more into it. I think it makes sense for me since I'm heavily educated in literature.

There's www.amblesideonline.com. We are using Sonlight next year, which is lit. based. There's several others as well. But Ambleside is free.

Thomas Jefferson Education. Google George Wyth College. It's in Cedar City Utah. Or Leadership Education. Awesome homeschool stuff!

You could read the books written by Charlotte Mason. THey are available online through www.amblesideonline.com

I also like www.oldfashionededucation.com

we are using aspects of five in a row - it is literature based. anything with charlotte mason utilizes literature as the base of the curriculum. in addition to what has been mentioned, may people like tanglewood as well. here's the link: http://www.tanglewoodeducation.com/

I found tanglewood much more helpful, personally, than ambleside... though I know lots of people love ambleside more than anything!

Another good site is simplycharlottemason. Very helpful.

I just switched to a Charlotte Mason style a couple months ago. We're not completely, strictly, literature-based, but we've greatly upped that aspect of things and incorporated (or are in the process of incorporating) other CM ideas (in regards to narration, scheduling, planning, nature). DS is almost 11, and is really enjoying it.

Thank you for all the great links! I'm getting pretty excited. There's a lot of really great stuff out there.

I'm surprised noone has mentioned Sonlight.
It's expensive to buy a whole curriculum, but just having a look at the booklist is helpful.

For some reason I had the impression that the OP wanted free resources, but your right momtokea, that wasn't the request. We are using Sonlight and adore it! There is also Winterpromise and Tapestry of Grace.

We have used WinterPromise and really loved it.
