You might remember reading about Philosophy Adventure, my first review for Home School Adventure Co. It is an impeccably researched and well-written curriculum which contrasts the beliefs and worldview of pre-Socratic philosophers with Biblical truths. It has fantastic writing assignments and throughout the course, the student will not only be learning about philosophers of the ancient world and how their thinking either lines up or doesn’t with God’s Word; they will also be constructing writing and speaking assignments which will really cause them to think. I loved doing parts of this curriculum with Jackson and we plan to revisit it again when he’s a bit older.
We also participated in the launch for Creative Freewriting Adventure last week, and Jackson and I also used and reviewed the curriculum. Once again, we were so impressed with writer Stacy Farrell’s research, creativity and vision as we used the freewriting assignments. I’ve linked to both the Philosophy Adventure and Creative Freewriting Adventure reviews so you can see more about these wonderful products and our experiences with them. And read on to discover more about these curricula and the other resources some blessed person will win!
Home School Adventure Co. is ready to release their latest biblical worldview resource — Creative Freewriting Adventure – A Journey Into Freewriting!
Creative Freewriting Adventure is a collection of thought-provoking freewriting exercises designed to inspire creativity and critical thinking, even in reluctant writers.
The official release of this wonderful resource will be at a Facebook Party on Thursday, September 18, 9 PM ET. I’ve heard there will be lots of prizes given away that night (and some free stuff for all guests, too). I hope you will join me! You can RSVP here.
I am joining author, Stacy Farrell, and Home School Adventure Co. to celebrate the release of Creative Freewriting Adventure with this impressive giveaway, valued at nearly $300! One winner will win PRINT copies of all of HSA’s resources, plus 4 biblical worldview books and a lovely canvas tote bag.
Here’s what you could win:
Bring joy and excitement into your student’s writing with these simple-to-execute (yet significant) writing exercises. No prep required. Just grab a pen and paper, set a timer, and have fun!
Writing can be hard work. Good writing most often results from much rewriting, and much rewriting can make a writer weary. Since Philosophy Adventure™ students polish one primary writing assignment over the course of several weeks (supported by clear step-by-step instructions and seven writing checklists), we created freewriting exercises to offset their hard work with play!
DO YOU NEED to teach advanced writing and speaking skills? DO YOU WANT your students equipped to discern truth as ungodly messages bombard them? DO YOU WONDER how to cover all they need academically as well as practically? Philosophy Adventure may be your solution!
Philosophy Adventure™ is designed to help students 6th-12th grade cultivate and defend a biblical worldview by teaching them how to write skillfully, think critically, and speak articulately as they explore the history of ideas.
Have we forgotten whose we are? In this “Age of Tolerance,” Christians are in danger of forgetting (or never learning) what distinguishes a Christian worldview from other worldviews. The Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal is a powerful tool to strengthen critical thinking while cultivating a biblical worldview. A companion to Lewis’s classic work, the Journal can be used for independent study with teenagers or adults, or as a group study in families, homeschools, co-ops, classrooms, Sunday school, and small groups.
This bundle contains the Print Edition of the Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal with a softcover edition of Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis’s original work.
What does it mean to love Him with all your mind? The Bible is banned in many countries. Countless believers have sacrificed their freedom—and many, their lives—to spread the message of God’s love and salvation contained within its pages. Are we exercising our freedom responsibly? Memorize the entire book of Philippians in 28 weeks!
How do you train a heart?
George MacDonald’s The Wise Woman enchants readers while it contrasts the ugliness of pride, selfishness and conceit with the beauty of humility, sacrifice, and compassion.
The Wise Woman is a perfect story for a family to read together curled up on the couch under a warm afghan or after a meal. (It is only fair to warn you: once you read the first chapter, you might not put it down. More than one mom has stayed up late to read after her children have gone to bed.)
Read each chapter and discuss the literary analysis questions and vocabulary. Clear writing requires clear thinking. The exercise of formulating and writing answers will strengthen your students’ thinking and communication skills. Middle school and high school students create a profound keepsake as they write their answers in the book.
By offering students 16 to 24 literary analysis questions per chapter, this 160-page spiral bound edition teaches critical thinking in a way that is engaging and transformational.
