Unit Study or Multiple-Subject Curriculum or Schedule based on The Well Trained Mind

Recommended Posts

I'm heavily considering TOG to use with my upcoming 5th, 3rd, and 1st graders, having just finished our first four-year cycle with TWTM / SOTW but I am not sure I can justify the cost and labor for just humanities (history, geography, literature, writing) when we also want to cover the other classical subjects: math, science, grammar, handwriting/typing, spelling, Latin, Spanish, Intro to Logic (last two are for my oldest).


With such a focus on one area, I'm concerned about it swallowing up the time energy that needs to be distributed among the others. And it sounds like a scheduling nightmare. In the past, we haven't formally studied writing because it happened organically with the narrations - same with geography, so I'm not sure whether we need to specialize like that.


So I either need people who have successfully made the above scenario work to encourage me or I would like to find a program (or even just a scheduling tool) that is more aligned with TWTM. I considered Classical House of Literature but again, it's a lot of emphasis on one area. Maybe that's okay but I'm worried about overkill...
