The Ethos Logos model is designed to combine
- Classical Education
- Charlotte Mason Philosophy
- Thematic Units
We find this combination gives your family the most flexibility with the greatest structure or roadmap to ensure you have a plan or path for your instruction.
Homeschooling is exploding in the United States. The reasons families choose to homeschool vary and how they teach their children is limitless. The main types of homeschool instruction methods include...
The Grammar stage serves as the foundation for the entire educational model. This stage of learning involves a focus on facts and memorization. Think math facts, grammar conventions, early spelling, sentence structure, and foundations of science and history.
As students move to the Logic and Rhetoric stages, these facts are built upon for deeper understanding. In blending Classical with Charlotte Mason (and a bit of Thomas Jefferson philosophies), families set up daily family learning time, reading, discussion, journaling, and plenty of free time. The implementation and study of classic literature with an emphasis on connecting history and literature is an intentional feature of the Ethos Logos model.
All our units of instruction (10 per year) are based on thematic units with history as the major theme. We have spent years in classrooms aligning the themes, matching age-appropriate classical literature to the history theme your family will be studying. These theme-based units create a natural flow from subject to subject and month to month. Your family will explore dates and times, what society was like, and how characters dressed, lived, struggled, and celebrated. Thematic units give your instructional approach a foundation.
