Tapestry of Grace Virtual Co-op Option (Cross-Posted)


Recommended Posts

Online co-op using Year 3 of Tapestry of Grace for the 2020/2021 school year has openings at the Dialectic and Rhetoric levels.

Our virtual co-op, Virtual Threads, has been in existence for more than 13 years. For 2020/2021, we will be meeting on Thursday mornings for Dialectic & Rhetoric literature classes and Friday mornings for Dialectic & Rhetoric history classes. On Thursday mornings we also offer Art Appreciation class for member families. Exact class times:

  • Dialectic Literature (Thursdays 9-10 am EST)
  • Dialectic History (Fridays 11 am-12:30 pm EST)
  • Rhetoric Literature (Thursdays 11 am-12:30 pm EST)
  • Rhetoric History (Fridays 9-10:30 am EST)
  • Art Appreciation (Thursdays 10:15-10:45 am EST)

It is not a requirement that students participate in all classes - a student may be in just history or just literature, but Art Appreciation is limited to families who are in one or more of the core classes - but we do encourage participation in both history and literature, if possible.  We encourage students to turn in written homework to that week’s teacher, but we support individual family’s leadership as the homeschool parent for their student.

We prefer that new families have at least one year’s experience with Tapestry of Grace, but we encourage you to apply even if you are new to the curriculum .

We share the teaching load among the moms and/or dads. We use a team-teaching approach with multiple parents assigned to each unit. This helps provide continuity from week to week as the unit team splits the actual teaching duties and works together to make decisions about which themes to emphasize, which assignments to reduce/add to, which resources to cut, etc.

We are not an online class, but a co-op. Our families get to know each other - online and in real life, where possible. We support, encourage and pray for each other as our kids grow up together walking through the dialectic and rhetoric years with a group of friends.

We have been using CourseSites as our free platform, both for sharing of information and for classroom meeting space, but are looking at new options for the upcoming year.

If this sounds like something that you could commit to and would benefit your homeschool, please complete this application form.

In his grace,
Carrie
