Since it's so hard to find great online courses for the Logic Stage set, I thought I'd post about our recent experience with online class providers.
First, CLRC (Classical Learning Resource Centre)
My son just finished Intermediate Latin A with them and it has been a wonderful experience. The teacher is knowledgeable and the workload perfect. Oxford Latin (the textbook they use) is clear and not overwhelming, like some other Latin texts. I really liked that he got to SPEAK as well - the class did little plays, etc. (They offer Latin at all levels - elementary to high school.) The online social interaction in the class was enjoyable to my son and always positive.
We are so impressed by this company, that I have enrolled my DS into 2 other classes offered by CLRC - Literature and Composition as well as Critical Thinking/Philosophy. The last course is listed as a high school course, but after emailing back and forth with the teacher, it seems like it would be fairly accessible to a strong middle school student.
Their teachers are highly qualified - and it shows.
Another big plus is that they offer very reasonable payment plans with no extra or hidden costs. (Early registration discounted fees end May 31!)
Next - Barbarian Diagrammarian and Witty Wordsmith with Lukeion.
Another great experience. The teacher is very knowledgeable and strict - this was good for my son. (I was going to enroll DS in their Latin program but did not want to spend so much time per week on it - DS just does not have time.) The course material was provided and excellent. I would highly recommend these courses.
And now we never have to do grammar again!!
And then there is Clover Creek Physics. My son actually cried when this course finished. It's a high school course, so I will not go into to much detail over here - but it has made our year. I would go as far as to say that it has been the BEST homeschool course we have ever done. If your child is not ready for it now, get on the waitlist, it fills up VERY quickly.
Looking forward to hearing about your online experiences.....
