Claritas Classical Memory Program

Taking a classical approach which focuses on the grammar stage of the trivium, the foundation of this class is the Claritas Memory Work Guide Cycle 2 (The Dark Ages through Early Explorers).  The Memory Work Guide covers 28 separate grammar pegs for the following subjects: Hymns, Scripture, English Grammar, Latin, Math, History, Geography, Timeline, and Science.  Each week the students will memorize the grammar peg for each of the subjects for that week.  New memory work will be introduced on Mondays and reviewed on Wednesdays.  Students will be expected to work on the Claritas Memory Work at home.  

The following core subjects will be taught on Mondays and Wednesdays with homework required on the other days of the week:  Literature, Math, Grammar, History, Science and Latin.  These courses will follow a classical method of teaching, keeping in mind the grammar stage of learning and centering around Claritas Memory Work Cycle 2 when applicable. Parent involvement at home will be necessary. 

 

Claritas students are highly encouraged to take the Claritas Music & Art class elective and the grade appropriate IEW writing elective. 

 

Please note that Handwriting is not included in the core class, but we recommend A Reason for Handwriting curriculum to do at home as it fits well with the classical approach to education.
