    General Information

    Four Divisions:

      I - Parent-Teacher Education
        In our school, we periodically called-in experts or gave lectures on subjects helpful to parents in teaching their children. Here, we continue that practice. The early classes help you get started in the curriculum. Later classes help you hone your parenting, homeschooling, or personal life skills.

      II - Early Childhood Education - Levels 0-4

        This division covers from before birth through age four, providing instructions to parents on how they can facilitate their child reaching his academic potential. It also includes the student Early Childhood Curriculum through age 4.

      III - Beehive Academy - Levels/Ages 5-11

        These courses are NOT normal Kindergarten through 6th grade fare. No. While some students will be just fine starting in Level 5, others may need to start in Level 3. Look-over these early Levels to determine where to start YOUR child. Fortunately, a student at Beehive may advance from one level to another within each subject as soon as he/she is able. Time spent at the lower levels depends upon an individual's former education and maturity. Beehive staff stands ready to help you in the correct placement of your student.

      IV - Beehive Preparatory School - Levels/Ages 12-18

        Again, these courses are NOT your normal 7th through 12th grade fare. Many subjects start with upper division high school and advance into lower division, and some upper division college. WHY? It used to be that what is now taught in high school - and more, was once taught in Grammar School, Grades 1-8, and High School was a preparatory for advanced work at the college or university. The High School years were when the student received his Liberal Arts education! The college or university was basically for specialization such as the law, the ministry, and so forth. Through the educational 'reforms' of the last 150+ years, our education system has become severely 'dumbed-down'. At Beehive, we are committed to 'smarting-up' education, and thus have adopted the older tradition of Grammar School, Liberals Arts, and then College or University. This and reliance on the Holy Ghost for help in learning are the two reasons why we term what we offer "A Higher Education".

    BEEHIVE STUDENT CURRICULUM

    GENERAL INFORMATION

    The Beehive Student Curriculum:

    1. Aligns with LDS principles.
    2. Builds patriotism.
    3. Teaches effective, proven learning strategies.
    4. Emphasizes religious, academic, and life skills subject mastery.
    5. Follows D&C 88:118 "...to seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, by study and also by faith." and D&C 90:15 to "...study and learn, and become acquainted with all good books, and with languages, tongues, and people."
    6. Develops Christ-like Character.
    7. Includes God in the Educational Process, especially Learning by the Spirit.

    Levels, Scope, and Sequence

      Levels - The curriculum is designed for students to begin at birth thus including the all-important first three formative years and continues through age 18. Therefore, the Curriculum boasts 18 Levels, beginning with Level 0 corresponding to the first year of life and continuing with Levels 1 through 17, corresponding to the age of the student.

      Scope - The curriculum covers building early cognitive and physical prowess in the infant through college level courses. It covers religious and character education, life skills, rigorous academics, talent and interest exploration, plus - in some cases, where there is interest, career and business development.

      Sequence - The Curriculum begins with very simple weekly efforts by the parent to awaken and develop the infant's intellectual, cognitive, and emotional skills. Then, it moves incrementally through the various disciplines and ends with professional or college level instruction.

    Curriculum Delivery and Use:

      The curriculum is published online; however, most is worked off-line.

      WHY? Experience and studies show that working continually on the computer is detrimental to
      physical, mental, and spiritual health, mental acuity (brain performance), and eyesight.
      We prefer to protect the health and well-being of our students by having most courses worked off-line.
      Therefore, our online video lessons are brief, and to the point.

    Why We Are Putting Our Private School Curriculum Online

      In the spring of 2009, after operating our private school for twelve years, we decided to test the curriculum.

      The results were phenomenal: the elementary class scored an average of the 98 percentile in reading and the 92 percentile in math. "If the curriculum is that good," we thought, "we've got to get it out there." So began the quest to put the Beehive Curriculum on line.

    What the Curriculum Includes

      A 'curriculum' is "courses of study given in a school". That is exactly what we present here, Beehive School's courses of study. The courses are revealed in syllabi that denote objectives of a particular course, resources required, and a general schedule of lessons. In some cases, courses are self-contained within the syllabi. In the majority of courses, additional resources are required. Since the Beehive Curriculum has been developed "Out of the Best Books," most of the additional resources required are books. These, along with pricing and information as to where they can be purchased, are listed within the syllabi. Beehive subscribers are reminded that purchasing used books, in good condition, is a prudent way to stretch the education budget.

    Brief Subject Descriptions

      PARENT-TEACHER EDUCATION - These classes and short courses begin by introducing the Parents to Beehive and helping them help their student or students get started in the Beehive Curriculum. As the courses progress, insights are given in a variety of areas to help the parents enrich their own knowledge and their student's education.

      EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION - Encompassing the first 5 Levels, Early Childhood Education endeavors to at first awaken and stimulate the nervous system and help develop it and integrate it with the body to produce an individual with optimum learning potential. It also teaches basics of music, math, reading, science, and much more. By the end of Level 400, the student should be reading well at a second grade level, doing simple math and more.

      OPENING EXERCISES - This subject encompasses the Opening Devotional of a song and a prayer, plus the brain integrating exercises that awaken one's learning potentional. Absolutely essential. Foundational to success at Beehive.

      RELIGION - While in the early Childhood division, Religion centers around the Church Scripture Storybooks, and is attended to once a day. However, beginning in Level 5, we incorporate President Benson's instruction to the children of the Church to read from the Book of Mormon and one other scripture every day. Thus, for every succeeding Level, we offer a Book of Mormon course and a course in another scripture, or a combined course which incorporates the Book of Mormon with an other scripture. We encourage parents and students to follow President Benson's invitation to study from the Book of Mormon and another scripture every day.

      SUCCESS SKILLS - Success Skills deals with righteous character traits and practices that lead to success in school, in life, and in eternity. Students read about, learn, and then practice these skills throughout the level.

      STUDY SKILLS - Study Skills deals with ways to hone our academic skills and make the most of our school and learning opportunites. We have a full curriculum of Study Skills which work together to enhance student performance, from learning to seek help through prayer, to learning day-to-day study strategies, to learning critical thinking skills through the James Madison Critical Thinking Course, to learning the principles of becoming a genius, and much in between. Our students learn how to learn and apply those lessons to their studies and their lives.

      LANGUAGE ARTS - It has been proven that learning to read and write the wrong way can actually impede a student's progress and cause learning dis-abilities. Therefore, we teach the correct way, the way the brain works! The beginning levels concentrate on learning to read, write, spell and comprehend. In the middle levels emphasis shifts to concentrate on virtuous literature - childhood, LDS, World, American and English - as well as learning to write and speak in a number of different modes. It's aim is to produce an articulate, able communicator who also listens and understands with heart and mind. The upper levels concentrate on expression in speech, journalism, creative writing, and debate, as well as survey courses in the Great Books, making our upper levels on a par with some college classes.

      GEOGRAPHY-HISTORY-GOVERNMENT - Each is intended to familiarize the student with his world as directed in the Doctrine and Covenants 93:53; "And, verily I say unto you, that it is my will that ye should..., obtain a knowledge of history, and of countries, and of kingdoms, of laws of God and man, and all this for the salvation of Zion. Amen." We emphasize knowing about the countries and peoples of the world; real history - starting history where it started in the Garden of Eden and Adam-ondi-Ahman; knowing the promise upon this land as denoted in the Book of Mormon, Ether 2:12, and 2 Nephi 1:9,20,31; and knowing the US Constitution and our rights and privileges under it.

      SCIENCE Referring to Doctrine and Covenants 88:79, "Of things both in heaven and in the earth, and under the earth; things which have been, things which are, thing which must shortly come to pass;..." President Henry B. Eyring, said, "There is also an endorsement for questions we study in the sciences." Our courses begin with examining scientific principles inherent in Creation and following the history of science, then breaking into individual courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth & Space Sciences, Human Biology, Marine Sciences, and Advanced courses in Chemistry and Physics.

      MATHEMATICS - I once heard a General Authority say that the three secular subjects of most worth to us in eternity, would be Science, Music, and Mathematics! We begin with Mathematical Reasoning in Level 3, and continue through the Levels to arrive at College Level Calculus, Logic, Statistics, and Real Analysis. Our math curriculum relates math to the real world and requires that our students T-H-I-N-K, thus developing their minds.

      HEALTH & FITNESS - If we are to serve and carry out our missions upon this earth, we need to observe the Laws of Health and pursue a Fitness Regimen. Beehive Health & Fitness helps the student, and the whole family, know how to be healthy and fit. After covering the basic Laws of Health as given in the Scriptures, we venture to natural healing methods such the medicinal properties of Nature's Super 7 Medicines, plus herbs and spices, the importance of water, flax, clay, fasting, walking, rebound exercise, sleep, the Word of Wisdom, and more.

      FAMILY STUDIES - In Family Studies, the child first reviews his divine heritage, then develops his personal history, and moves into gathering a history of his family, immediate, extended and ancestral. He learns how to do research using Family Search and other sources and how to archive properly the documents and other items he finds in his research and gathering. Along the way, he learns how to find and prepare names for the Temple. The last four levels of Family Studies uses BYU developed texts and present the Family: A Proclamation to the World in great depth, thus preparing a student for his own future family.

      FINANCIAL LITERACY - Financial Literacy spans the gamut from studying Personal Finance along with how to become Self-Reliant in Financial Matters, to Careers, Business, Entrepreneurship, and Economics. LDS authors and proven experts with excellent insights and advice.

      FOODS & GARDENING -

      FOODS - Why Foods? Why Cooking? Many nutritionists and health professionals are sounding an alarm that is two-fold. One, eating-out and eating easy-to-fix processed meals full of additives at home is ruining Americans' health and causing major problems from cancer, diabetes and heart disease to ADD and Alzheimers. Two: We are fast losing the art of simple, healthy home-cooking.
      To help alleviate these problems we offer fun and informative foods classes, highlighting a plant-based or Word of Wisdom way of eating, especially vegetarian and vegan cuisine. However, we also include several courses on regular cuisine, and kid's and plant-based recipes from around the world, as well as Raw and Live Cuisine and the proven heart disease free, cancer free, diabetes free diet pioneered by Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr.
      As the levels increase, so do the the skills involved. We even have a course in the 1000 Level that deals with food preservation. This course presumes that you will either be growing your own and be buying in bulk from a Farmers' Market, and want to preserve and store foods of high nutritious quality.
      In addition, we have courses in the speciality areas of Live Food, Herbs & Spices, Food and Behavior, and Food that can enhance memory and protect the brain from dementia and Alzheimers.

      GARDENING - Why Gardening? - Preparedness, Health, and Obedience. Gardening, growing our own food, is one of those items listed in Preparedness - Self-Reliance. What if the power goes out and food cannot be trucked-in? Do you have seeds on hand? Do you know what to do with them? Aside from the scary Preparedness aspect, growing one's own food just makes sense from the health standpoint. Trucked-in, days from being harvested food, has lost much of its nutrition. Also, because the soil in which the food is grown is severely depleted of minerals, the food is not as nourishing as it should be. The solution is to do as the prophets, particularly Presidents Kimball and Benson, have counseled: 'Grow as much of your own food as you can on your own property'.
      Our gardening classes begin with growing sprouts and include everything from raised bed Square Foot Gardening to container gardening of vegetables, fruits and flowers, to worm composting to growing fresh air to gardening year round to intensive and nutrient dense growing to self-sufficiency on a 1/4 acre to growing in your back yard, basement or windows for profit.

      HOME CARE SKILLS & PREPAREDNESS -

      HOME CARE SKILLS - The courses are designed to help the students learn 'housekeeping' skills, first in their own homes, then acquire skills in sewing, knitting, crochet and how to perform simple maintenance and repairs. Budgeting and home management with an emphasis on how to create a celestial home are also presented.

      PREPAREDNESS - The Church expects us to Be Prepared - for any eventuality, - natural disaster, flood, fire, earthquake, civil unrest, famine, disease, or unemployment. Level by level students learn to prepare from knowing exit stategies in case of fire to managing their own 72/96 hour kits, First Aid, and much more. Orienteering anyone?

      MUSIC-ARTS-THEATER -

      MUSIC - Give your child the absolute BEST EDUCATION, have him involved in music throughout his academic career and hopefully, he will continue it throughout his life. WHY? simply because it is a great stress-reliever and also a great brain organizer. During WWII, when the government wanted persons to oversee a major military-scientific project, did they choose Generals or scientists to over see it? No. They chose musicians! Musicians can learn faster, correlate information easier and coordinate multi-facets better than any other profession! Hence, since we desire these atrributes for our students, we ask that they be involved in some way in music on a continuing basis. We offer music right from the start - learning rhythm, and work-up to singing, playing, appreciating, and composing. One course is devoted to LDS musicians.

      ARTS & CRAFTS - Begins with simple art work and advances into the princples and practice of art in several media and forms, including painting, drawing, photography, print, computer graphics, fibers, book arts, ceramics, sculpture, and architecture, as well as several forays into Art History and Careers in Art. Of special interest are the Craft projects, required of students four times a year, to help them further appreciate and explore what is Art, - as well as perhaps find a talent or interest in a praticular area that might even turn into a career or profession. There is even a special course about LDS artists and their works.

      THEATER - Brigham Young was a great friend of theater. We follow his guidelines: "Upon the stage of a theater can be represented in character, evil and its consequences, good and its happy results and rewards; the weakness and the follies of man, the magnanimity of virtue and the greatness of truth. The stage can be made to aid the pulpit in impressing upon the minds of a community an enlightened sense of a virtuous life, also a proper horror of the enormity of sin and a just dread of its consequences. The path of sin with its thorns and pitfalls, its gins and snares can be revealed, and how to shun it (DBY, 243). "Tragedy is favored by the outside world; I am not in favor of it. I do not wish murder and all its horrors and the villainy leading to it portrayed before our women and children; I do not want the child to carry home with it the fear of … the sword, the pistol, or the dagger, and suffer in the night from frightful dreams. I want such plays performed as will make the spectators feel well; and I wish those who perform to select a class of plays that will improve the public mind, and exalt the literary taste of the community." (DBY, 243–44). Thus, we study theater and choose plays which inform and teach, as well as entertain. A special course is devoted to LDS playwrights, actors, etc.

      WORLD LANGUAGES - We offer Foreign Languages so that those who wish to, may liken the scripture, Doctrine and Covenants 90:15 to themselves: "...and study and learn, and become acquainted with all good books, and with languages, tongues, and people."

      ASL: We offer 3 Levels of ASL through an online course.

      SPANISH: Spanish available in Level 5, and will gradually be available through Level 17.

      LATIN: Latin will eventually be available in Levels 8 and up.

      Other languages we may host in the future are: Arabic, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian. Please let us know your interest.

      ** EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 201 ADJUNCT - The Real Mother Goose

        What a find! Download and print. It is this year's literature read. Fantastic!

    Level 3 - Age 3 to 4

      ** EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 300 - SLOW and STEADY, PART FOUR - AGE 3-4

        The LEVEL 3 All-in-One course syllabus for three year olds includes a year's worth of lessons and activities in Opening Devotional; Brain Integrating Exercises; Book of Mormon and Old Testament Stories; Language Arts, Music, Math, Slow and Steady which contains the weekly incremental physical and mental development plan, Art, Thinking Skills, Dance, and Closing Devotional.

          Some of the objectives for the year are:
          To learn 26 Brain integrating exercises
          To learn the alphabet
          To learn to read
          To learn proper manusraipt (printing) penmanship
          To learn the numbers
          To be able to add and subtract through and to 10
          To learn thinking skills appropriate for this age
          To learn 10 different dances and to dance in rhythm to any music
          To learn several songs of early childhood
          To begin instruction in playing either the xylophone or hand bells
          To refine fine motor skills through coloring, folding, pasting and stickering, cutting and making several craft projects
          To listen to several rhymes of early childhood as well as fairytales, and The Complete Beatrix Potter(Peter Rabbit)
          To participate in the Slow and Steady program for incremental physical, and mental development.

      ** EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 301 ADJUNCT - Teaching Proper Penmanship

        Contains lessons on how to teach penmanship, the proper way to hold a pencil; a template of both lower and uppercase letters, as well as numbers that show how to form these correctly; templates of lined penmanship papers for all ages. Surprising, but true - how we learn to form our letters can either be with how the brain works, or against how the brain works. Learning to write our letters with the brain helps to avoid some learning challenges that learning to write the wrong way can cause.

      ** EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 302 ADJUNCT - The Beehive Brain Box Learning System

        This is the system that allowed even some very learning challenged students to actually learn, and others to excell in their studies. It is one of the 'secrets' to our success.

      ** EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 303 ADJUNCT - The Good Turn Journal
      ** ECED 304 ADJUNCT - The Good Turn Journal Instructions

        Read the instructions and then commence on a life long adventure of daily service. This is begun in mid-year or at 3 1/2 years old to be in line with normal development and maturity. A true winner.

      ** EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 305 ADJUNCT - Alphabet 8s Template

        Print the template IN COLOR, then insert it inside a sheet protector. Acquire an erasable marker and have the child practice his Alphabet 8's on the sheet protector. Then, when he is finished, evaluate his progress and have him clean-off the sheet protector. Sheet protectors have lasted up to 100+ uses before needing to be replaced! Better than printing 100 sheets of paper in color! Mom's, Dad's and older siblings should try this also. A great exercise for the whole family.

    Level 4 - Age 4 to 5

      ** EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 400 - SLOW AND STEADY, PART FIVE - AGE 4-5
        The Level 4 Success Skills course includes: Opening Devotional; Opening Exercises; Music, Science; US Geography; Slow and Steady, Part 5, the weekly activities for physical and mental development; Dance & PE; Thinking Skills & Games; and Closing Devotional. This 358 page syllabus introduces the parent to the Level 4 curriculum, the resources required, and the lesson line-up for the subjects mentioned.

        A great place to start in the Beehive Curriculum. Weren't with us for Levels 0-3? No worries. Just follow the instructions in this syllabus and the others of the Level 4 series and you and your child will be fine.

        NOTE: Level 400 Religion, Language Arts, Mathematics, Art, and Government are individual downloads and have their own separate descriptions and syllabi. They are located under their individual subjects in the lesson line-up.

      ** ECED - RELIGION 400 - SCRIPTURE STORY TIME - DOCTRINE & COVENANTS & the BOOK OF MORMON

        The course syllabus is 5 pages and includes the objectives, materials list, instructions, and reading schedule for the 52 week course. Parents are encouraged to discuss and testify concerning the principles and contents of the stories.

      ** ECED - LANGUAGE ARTS 400 - BEEHIVE LEARNING-to-READ COURSE #2 with ADJUNCTS

        This is the Learning-to-Read program that caused our elementary students to receive an average grade in reading of the 98th percentile on a nationally normed test. It is also one of the main reasons we decided to put the curriculum online. We wanted others to have the same success as our on-campus students. The course comes in 12 units of 15 lessons each, with several adjuncts. It reviews elements of the reading course given in the last half of Level 3, and further develops reading and language skill abilities. If the child did not take the Level 3 course, no worries, this is a stand alone course that can get your student started reading. The student will read at least at second grade level by its end. 180 lessons, including reviews, plus an extension for weeks 37-52. Can be and ought to be stretched over the course of the Level 4 year. Completed at the student's pace. One of an excellent trio of reading courses.
          **LA 400 - Introductory includes instructions, elements for the Level 4 Learning-to-Read Binder.
          **LA 401 - Handwriting Basics - How to teach, hold a pencil, penmanship charts and graduated penmanship paper templates for practice and copy work.

          **LA 408-419 - The main 180 lessons of the course in 12, fifteen lesson units.
          **LA 420 - The Language Level 4 Extension. Covers weeks 37-52. Encourages the child to read Dr. Seuss books, if appropriate, and especially his own interests. We hope each will set a goal of reading 100 books during this period. Instructions and tips for parents in how to help and encourage.
          **LA 421 - The Phonics Drills from the Level 400 course, all-in-one convenient download. Used during weeks 37-52.

      ** ECED - MATHEMATICS 400 - ELEMENTARY MATH I: BEEHIVE BASICS with BEGINNING LIFE OF FRED (LOF)

        A true winner. The student learns his numbers, addition and subtraction facts, quantities, the calendar, time, money and much, much more, plus is introduced to the Life of Fred Apples and Butterflies in the second half of the 180 lessons. As with the Language Arts course, these lessons can be stretched to cover the full Level 4 year as all other courses are by the week for 52 weeks. Will easily be at second grade level in math.

          ** MATHEMATICS 401 - Resource 3 - Numeral Formation and Practice Frames - Needed in Lesson 1

          ** MATHEMATICS 402 - Resource 6 - Analog Clock Needed in Lesson 1

        A WORD about LIFE of FRED MATH: We have chosen Life of Fred Math because it is a total curriculum that spans elementary through upper division college math. But, more than that, it requires the student to think and analyze and figure things out for himself. This is a great gift. In addition, it boasts more actual math information than other courses and includes many, many adjuncts in the way of character education and general knowledge. Also, LOF books explain math in a way that makes it all relevant to everyday life and everyday people.

      **ECED - ART 400 LEVEL - Two courses. Choose one.

        **ECED - ARTS & CRAFTS 400 - PRESCHOOL ART: EXPLORING MEDIUMS and TECHNIQUES

      ** STUDY SKILLS 515 - THINKING SKILLS 2

        This colorful, engaging 272-page book develops critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and standardized tests in Grades K-1. It uses a series of lessons with math manipulatives and language integration techniques to teach thinking skills. This program is designed to:
      1. Improve young children's observation and description skills;
      2. Stimulate vocabulary development;
      3. Clarify thinking processes that underlie content learning (observing, describing/defining, identifying similarities and differences, sequencing, classifying, and recognizing analogy);
      4. Improve students’ conceptualization of mathematics, social studies and science concepts taught in the primary grades.

      5. The five cognitive skills developed in this series (describing, finding similarities and differences, sequencing, classifying, and forming analogies) were selected because of their prevalence in academic disciplines and their frequency in objective tests. Since improved academic performance is an important goal of thinking skills instruction, many variations of each of these thinking skills are promoted in the activities.
        Thinking skills are sequenced in the order in which a child develops intellectually. A child first learns to observe and describe objects, to recognize the characteristics of an object, and then to distinguish similarities and differences between the objects. Describing, comparing, and contrasting skills are necessary to a child's ability to put things in order, to group items by class, and to think analogically.
        Complete course kit: $81.86, includes book, manipulatives, and teaching support. Course syllabus: 5 pages. 44 weeks. Excellent.

      ** LANGUAGE ARTS 500 - ELEMENTARY ENGLISH 2 - IN REVISION, OLD VERSION ONLINE - PREREQUISITE: LA 400

      NOTE: We test each student at entry to make sure each one has the knowledge taught in Language Arts 400. WHY? Learning to read and write the correct way is so very important because learning in an incorrect way can actually result in dis-abilties! Therefore, we require young students just starting out to take LA Level 400 first. Older students either test out or review the course until they master its content. In either case, after completing Language Arts 400, the student moves on to Language Arts 500. Older students review and test out of each LA Level until they find their true working level.

        Language Arts 500 - Furthers the student's reading, penmanship, and spelling skills. It highlights children's literature and introduces grammar and composition.

          This engaging, colorful 152-page book teaches the most important critical thinking concepts every student should know. Many workbooks claim to teach or develop critical thinking skills, but most of these products never define critical thinking or try to teach the meaning to students. This book defines and teaches critical thinking in a way all students can understand through simple explanations, diagrams, and short, engaging activities. In addition to being a course in c ritical thinking, the activities in this book can be used to supplement lessons in all subjects. Although the book teaches common argument forms, its primary focus is identifying and evaluating evidence–the very basis of critical thinking. Most propaganda, advertising schemes, legal trickery, and bad science are not the result of complex arguments; they are the result of half-truths and simple arguments. Students who successfully complete this book will have a fundamental set of critical thinking skills they can use their entire lives. Text: $29.99. Syllabus 4 pages.

        ** HEALTH 1200 - THE MORNING MIRACLE: LIVING in CONGRUITY with the DIVINE

          "There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated - And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated." Doctrine and Covenants 130:20-21.

          In the area of Health, we have discussed laws of exercise,(Not being idle); laws of food (The Word of Wisdom); laws of sleep and rest (Going to bed early, arising early and observing the Sabbath); laws of cleanliness (Purity and Honesty, the Commission and Omission of Things). NOW, we get to the crux, the center, the focal point of all these Laws: Congruity. Simply put, Congruity is living in Harmony with the Divine.

          In this course, we discuss and explore this law, while perusing the work of Hal Elrod and analyze it from a scriptural and spiritual point-of-view. Living in Congruity works, not only in the area of physical health, but especially in the areas of mental, emotional, and spiritual health also. Let's explore and work on becoming the person each one of us is meant to be, fulfilling our POTENTIAL. Text is $15.33 new and $9.99 & Up used at amazon. 14 Week Course. Sixteen page syllabus

        ** ART 1500 - SECONDARY ART II, Part 1
          This course, after a few preliminaries, is an STUDENT'S CHOICE COURSE. That means that the book we advise that you purchase is jam-packed with wonderful art lessons and projects - of which YOU, the Student, choose what you will do. We ask you to peruse the book thoroughly, then sit down and make a list of the projects you would like to do. Lastly, prioritize by determining for which projects you have the most passion - and BEGIN! PST! Please remember to include Quarterly Craft projects and 16 days for holiday art. The text is $23.67 new from amazon and is used for the 1500, 1600, & 1700 level art courses.

          After the initial chapter, which will NOT be of interest to you, the text delves into Elements of Art, Principles of Design and Art History. Next come the activity sections: Drawing - 17 projects; Painting - 18 projects; Printmaking - 21 projects; Photography - 14 projects; Computer Graphics - 19 projects; Fine Crafts - Fibers, Book Arts and Ceramics - 14 projects; Sculpture and Architecture - 26 projects; Careers in Art - 19 projects. This totals 148 projects altogether, most of which have multiple week time lines. Therefore, it is not unrealistic to expect that you may want to repeat the course a second, or even a third year with totally new projects.

          Note: Some art terms are not explained in the book. Most of these, with physical demonstrations, can be found on youtube or elsewhere on the internet. This is a 'grown-up' art course and you are expected to research and learn the terms and techniques you need for your projects, as not all of these are thoroughly explained in the book. Nevertheless, the book is a treasure-trove of artistic ideas, each of which includes notes for the teacher(parent) and information for the student. 180 days; Thirteen page syllabus details times for craft and holiday projects, if so desired.

        ** SCIENCE 1600 - ADVANCED CHEMISTRY

          Prerequisite: High School Chemistry. This, along with the first chemistry course, are the equivalent of an AP or first level college course in Chemistry. The author advises students NOT to challenge the AP chemistry test, however, citing the fact that college chemistry will be an easy A after taking this and H.S. Chemistry I. We, however, have a different view. Yes, the AP test is brutal and exceptionally hard to pass. But, we feel that our students, using the Beehive Brain Box Learning System and seeking and receiving the help of the Holy Ghost in understanding and cementing the knowledge available in these two chemistry courses, will be able to tackle and pass the AP Chemistry test – if that is their desire. Therefore, knowing that there may have been years intervening between this and the previous Chemistry course, a time of review for Chemistry I is given at the beginning of this course.

The Study Guide is $18.99. It is a supplement to the Talmage volume, and discusses knowledge and dicoveries that have ome to light since Talmage wrote Jesus the Christ" in 1915. The goals for this course are taken directly from the Church Study Guide in the 1964 Sunday School Program:
            "Our study this year is going to take us beyond the study of a single book. Elder Talmage based his writing mainly on the scriptures, particularly on the Gospels in the New Testament which portray the life of Jesus Christ briefly, but with artistry and conviction. We, too, shall be led back to the original sources. However, our main purpose will be neither a study of Brother Talmage's work nor of the Gospels. These are but means to an end, the vehicles by which we see our goal. Our study this year is of Jesus Christ, Himself - His life, His teachings, and His mission among men. We would come to know Him more fully for He is the head of our Church, the chief cornerstone of our faith. We belong to His church, bear witness to His Gospel, and aspire to be His disciples. Even the study of Jesus Christ, Himself, is not our ultimate goal this year. We wish to go beyond study and come into a new relationship with our Lord and Savior. We seek His companionship , the sweet influence of His Holy Spirit. We would that under this influence, our lives might change, that we might find new goals, establish finer relations with loved ones, associates, and mankind; and that the quality of our faith, repentance, humility, and love might improve..." (1963-64 Study Guide, 406).

The goals for this course are taken directly from the Church Study Guide in the 1964 Sunday School Program:

          "Our study this year is going to take us beyond the study of a single book. Elder Talmage based his writing mainly on the scriptures, particularly on the Gospels in the New Testament which portray the life of Jesus Christ briefly, but with artistry and conviction. We, too, shall be led back to the original sources. However, our main purpose will be neither a study of Brother Talmage's work nor of the Gospels. These are but means to an end, the vehicles by which we see our goal. Our study this year is of Jesus Christ, Himself - His life, His teachings, and His mission among men. We would come to know Him more fully for He is the head of our Church, the chief cornerstone of our faith. We belong to His church, bear witness to His Gospel, and aspire to be His disciples. Even the study of Jesus Christ, Himself, is not our ultimate goal this year. We wish to go beyond study and come into a new relationship with our Lord and Savior. We seek His companionship , the sweet influence of His Holy Spirit. We would that under this influence, our lives might change, that we might find new goals, establish finer relations with loved ones, associates, and mankind; and that the quality of our faith, repentance, humility, and love might improve..." (1963-64 Study Guide, 406).

It uses a series of lessons with math manipulatives and language integration techniques to teach thinking skills. This program is designed to:
        1. Improve young children's observation and description skills;
        2. Stimulate vocabulary development;
        3. Clarify thinking processes that underlie content learning (observing, describing/defining, identifying similarities and differences, sequencing, classifying, and recognizing analogy);
        4. Improve students’ conceptualization of mathematics, social studies and science concepts taught in the primary grades.

        5. The five cognitive skills developed in this series (describing, finding similarities and differences, sequencing, classifying, and forming analogies) were selected because of their prevalence in academic disciplines and their frequency in objective tests. Since improved academic performance is an important goal of thinking skills instruction, many variations of each of these thinking skills are promoted in the activities.
          Thinking skills are sequenced in the order in which a child develops intellectually. A child first learns to observe and describe objects, to recognize the characteristics of an object, and then to distinguish similarities and differences between the objects. Describing, comparing, and contrasting skills are necessary to a child's ability to put things in order, to group items by class, and to think analogically.

          This engaging, colorful 152-page book teaches the most important critical thinking concepts every student should know. Many workbooks claim to teach or develop critical thinking skills, but most of these products never define critical thinking or try to teach the meaning to students. This book defines and teaches critical thinking in a way all students can understand through simple explanations, diagrams, and short, engaging activities. In addition to being a course in c ritical thinking, the activities in this book can be used to supplement lessons in all subjects. Although the book teaches common argument forms, its primary focus is identifying and evaluating evidence–the very basis of critical thinking. Most propaganda, advertising schemes, legal trickery, and bad science are not the result of complex arguments; they are the result of half-truths and simple arguments. Students who successfully complete this book will have a fundamental set of critical thinking skills they can use their entire lives. Text: $29.99. Syllabus 4 pages.

        NOTICE: Language Arts 500 and the following Language Arts Courses are under revisiion. What we had planned was excellent, but there were tthree insurmountable problems. One, books and other materials we had chosen totaled more than we wanted you to have to spend. Two, the time required for the courses was not learnaing friendly. Three, the courses were NOT user friendly and required too much parent prep. So, we have gone back to the drawing board, streamlined the texts required, and prepared free online resources to take the place of others. In addition, we have cut down on both student and parent work, thus fitting into the brain-friendly timeframe that we have found is best for optimum learning. And,the courses are still excellent.

        LANGUAGE ARTS SPECIAL OFFERING: EXPLORATION of the GREAT BOOKS

          In Levels 1200 through 1700, we offer courses in the Great Books as designated by scholars, especially out of the University of Chicago and the Encyclopedia Britannica Board. The set of the Great Books of the Western World have been around since 1953, added to and deleted from at various times, and supplemented here by Great Books of the LDS Tradition. The levels follow the general outline of study as presented by the Great Books Home School Academy and also several liberal arts colleges, such as Hillsdale and St. John's. While this study is normally a four year course, at Beehive we begin at a slower pace, spreading the Greeks studied over the first two years, and the Romans the third and fourth years. Then, in Level 1600, writers of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Enlightenment are studied, and writers of the Modern Era in the 1700 Level, the final and sixth year for the Great Books. Study of the Great Books is completely OPTIONAL, but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Work on memorization of the text of the Constitution that was begun in former classs continues here. It is our intent that our students are well enough versed in the Constitution that they will know whether a proposed law or government action is or is not Constitutional. This is important as the Lord has directed us in the Doctrine and Covenants 98:5-7; 101:77-80; 109:54 to befriend the Constitution..."and (that it) should be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles; That every man may act in doctrine and principle pertaining to futurity, according to the moral agency which I have given unto him, that every man may be accountable for his own sins in the day of judgment."

We, however, have a different view. Yes, the AP test is brutal and exceptionally hard to pass. But, we feel that our students, using the Beehive Brain Box Learning System and seeking and receiving the help of the Holy Ghost in understanding and cementing the knowledge available in these two chemistry courses, will be able to tackle and pass the AP Chemistry test – if that is their desire. Therefore, knowing that there may have been years intervening between this and the previous Chemistry course, a time of review for Chemistry I is given at the beginning of this course.

      9 - Health & Fitness including Dance

      The Health, Fitness and Dance curriculum sports three or more courses per level. The courses are presented by level here with the Health courses first, then the Fitness and finally the Dance course for each level.

      Health courses deal with the Fundamental Laws of Health, the uses of ancient and traditional remedies using certain foods as medicine, especially herbs and essential oils as a way of assisting in the healing process.

      Fitness courses at Beehive are limited to four activities which we highly recommend and endorse: Brain Gym, walking, rebounding, and dancing. We have chosen these four activities for their relative inexpensiveness, their wide spread availability, and their lifelong usefulness. For other activities, we suggest that the parent enroll his student in local sports leagues or lessons or pursues meaningful instruction from reputable coaches.

      The GOALS of the Beehive Dance Curricula are fourfold.
      The first goal is fitness. There is nothing like dancing to help maintain fitness. Those who dance have more vitality and mental prowess in their early years, and live longer and have more mental ability longer.
      The second goal is a measure of DANCE LITERACY; that is, having a wide knowledge and experience in different dance forms. If a student is found to have a particular affinity for a dance form and proficiency is desired, it is expected that his parents will seek further training through local instructors.
      The third goal of the Beehive Dance Curricula is to inform the older student about forms of social dance, and provide a bit of etiquette and instruction in that area.
      And, fourth, for students so interested, a course is presented in dance cultures throughout history and around the world.

      NOTE: - Several of the dances presented here require a partner or a group setting. We suggest that family and perhaps friends, or maybe even your homeschool group participate. As a family, you could designate one day a week as dance day and participate together for 10-30 minutes, depending upon age and interest. Fun (& exercise) will be had by all.

        ** HEALTH & FITNESS 500 - FOUNDATIONAL SERIES, Part I -
          This course has three objectives. One is to learn Brain Gym exercises as presented in Opening Exercises 500. If you are a continuing student, you will already know these. If this is your first course, dig-in and enloy the exercises. They will help you tremendously in daily getting your mind and body ready to learn. The second objective is keeping you safe. It covers the BEST SAFETY TIP, the making of an ID Kit and the student learning his vital information. The third objective is to learn both a warm-up and a cool-down routine, plus the three fundamental skill of tossing and catching a ball, rolling a ball at a target and kicking a ball at a target. 36 Lessons, taught once-a-week and practiced as determined by the parent. A parent-delivered course. Items to purchase: those for ID Kit, an all round utility ball and a puffer ball. 12 page syllabus.

        ** FITNESS 750 - REBOUNDING, Part I

          In a Seminar called "Broken Brains," the physicians and other experts who deal with brain injuries and brain deficiencies, all recommend exercise as one way of healing and rebuilding and rejuvenating the brain. They recommend two types: cardio - meaning to increase heart rate, and strengthening - meaning to increase the strength of muscle groups. Traditional exercise requires several different exercises and even different types of equipment to fully strengthen all muscle groups, and also exercise the cardio system. Rebounding covers BOTH areas, takes only ONE piece of equipment, and very little time. This is why, along with walking and dancing, it is one of our three Foundational exercises. Learn a bit about rebounding and enjoy the benefits.

Hence, our students will indeed reap the promised results, and THAT's what we are after, too. Doctrine and Covenants 89:18-21:
          "And all saints who remember to do and keep these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow in their bones;
          "And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures;
          "And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint.
          "And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them."

          GARDENING 501 - Sprouting Mania - Uses the Text: Growing Your Own Living Foods: Sprouting the Easy Way by Brian Hetrich, available new through our store for $19.95. This gets us growing in the fall. It teaches a lot about seed sprouting and sprout growth, leading into growing in soil in containers or raised beds.

          GARDENING 502 - First Year Square Foot Gardening - Uses the text All New Square Foot Gardening II: The Revolutionary Way to Grow More in Less Space, available through our store. After decades of gardening and teaching gardening, we believe that the Square Foot Method is the best and most adaptable to various needs - half an acre to a patio or windowsill. It requires the construction of a 2' x 2' planting area for the student. This may be four 1 square foot containers in a sunny location within an apartment or on a patio, or a 1' x 4' or 2' x 2' actual grow box in the back yard. The text at this point is more for the parent than the student, but will also be used by the student in later courses. Subjects covered: planning, position, construction, soil, planting, watering and thinning and harvesting.

          GARDENING 601 - First Year Container Gardening - This and the next several courses use the superbly written text, McGee & Stuckey's The Bountiful Container, available new & used in our online store. Book description:

            With few exceptions-such as corn and pumpkins-everything edible that's grown in a traditional garden can be raised in a container. And with only one exception-watering-container gardening is a whole lot easier. Beginning with the down-to-earth basics of soil, sun and water, fertilizer, seeds and propagation, The Bountiful Container is an extraordinarily complete, plant-by-plant guide.

            Written by two seasoned container gardeners and writers, The Bountiful Container covers Vegetables-not just tomatoes (17 varieties) and peppers (19 varieties), butharicots verts, fava beans, Thumbelina carrots, Chioggia beets, and sugarsnap peas. Herbs, from basil to thyme, and including bay leaves, fennel, and saffron crocus. Edible Flowers, such as begonias, calendula, pansies, violets, and roses. And perhaps most surprising, Fruits, including apples, peaches, Meyer lemons, blueberries, currants, and figs-yes, even in the colder parts of the country. (Another benefit of container gardening: You can bring the less hardy perennials in over the winter.) There are theme gardens (an Italian cook's garden, a Four Seasons garden), lists of sources, and dozens of sidebars on everything from how to be a human honeybee to seeds that are All America Selections.

          Course content: We begin with the basics, starting in the fall with reading, learning and planning, covering Chapters 1-6, Managing Your Space; Planning for Good taste; Making Your Garden Beautiful; Hardware - Containers, Trellises, Tolls, and Storage; Software - Soil, Seeds and Plants; and Keeping a Healthy Garden. Armed with this information, we begin planning our VEGETABLE GARDEN in earnest and execute those plans with a modest numbers of containers throughout the growing season.

          GARDENING 602 - Second Year Square Foot Beds - This course is specifically for the Square Foot Gardener who last season made a 4 Square Foot Garden. This year, we ask that you expand to 8 square feet and include two vertical growing crops like tomatoes or watermelon or cucumbers or peas. This reminds the student of how to plan, construct, fill, plant and manage his Square Foot Garden and also how to construct and place trellises. Also, we recommend that you purchase, The Gardener's A-Z Guide to Growing Organic Food, available new or used in our online store. This book is a tremendously wonderful resource that you will want to refer to again and again. In addition to its general information, it includes information on 765 varieties of vegetables, herbs, fruits and nuts, plus 201 formulas and techniques that control pests and diseases organically.

          GARDENING 701 - Second Year Container Gardening - Expand. This Level calls for the renewal and expansion of vegetable containers, especially growing-up, and the addition of one or two fruit-bearing containers! Requires re-study of the vegetable chapter and first study of the fruit chapter in The Bountiful Container.

          GARDENING 702 - Third Year Square Foot Beds - This course, again, is specifically for the Square Foot gardener. We ask that the student double his bed to 16 square feet, grow food upright in four squares, and include both fruits and vegetables. He should also include two to three flowers.

          GARDENING 801 - Third Year Container Gardening - If the student has room, we ask that he increase his numbers of containers to include not only vegetables and a few fruits, but also flowers. This requires study of the flowers chapter in The Bountiful Container. You will note that these are EDIBLE FLOWERS, so be sure to get the right varieties, have fun garnishing salads, soups and more with the edible blossoms!

          GARDENING 802 - 4th Year Square Foot Gardening: Planning a Winter Harvest - This year, you may wish to put the X shaped PVC pipe poles over the bed and drape it with plastic - the colder the weather, the thicker the better. Also, as a guide to what to plant, etc. for a winter harvest (-mmmm - we have had greens, beets and other foods YEAR ROUND for a number of years; fresh food is absolutely WONDERFUL at 20 degrees or below!), please purchase, The Winter Harvest Handbook: Year Round Vegetable Production Using Deep-Organic Techniques and Unheated Greenhouses by Eliot Coleman, (Author), and Barbara Damrosch (Photographer). Eliot Coleman is THE EXPERT on this subject as he has been harvesting year round in Maine for over 20 years. Book description:

            Choosing locally grown organic food is a sustainable living trend that’s taken hold throughout North America. Celebrated farming expert Eliot Coleman helped start this movement with The New Organic Grower published 20 years ago. He continues to lead the way, pushing the limits of the harvest season while working his world-renowned organic farm in Harborside, Maine.

            Now, with his long-awaited new book, The Winter Harvest Handbook, anyone can have access to his hard-won experience. Gardeners and farmers can use the innovative, highly successful methods Coleman describes in this comprehensive handbook to raise crops throughout the coldest of winters.

            Building on the techniques that hundreds of thousands of farmers and gardeners adopted from The New Organic Grower and Four-Season Harvest, this new book focuses on growing produce of unparalleled freshness and quality in customized unheated or, in some cases, minimally heated, movable plastic greenhouses.

            Coleman offers clear, concise details on greenhouse construction and maintenance, planting schedules, crop management, harvesting practices, and even marketing methods in this complete, meticulous, and illustrated guide. Readers have access to all the techniques that have proven to produce higher-quality crops on Coleman’s own farm.

            His painstaking research and experimentation with more than 30 different crops will be valuable to small farmers, homesteaders, and experienced home gardeners who seek to expand their production seasons.

            A passionate advocate for the revival of small-scale sustainable farming, Coleman provides a practical model for supplying fresh, locally grown produce during the winter season, even in climates where conventional wisdom says it “just can’t be done.”

          This year's emphasis is reading and applying the applicable techniques to extending the harvest ALL YEAR ROUND!

          GARDENING 901 - 4th Year Container Gardening - Bring on the Herbs! - Herbs are wonderful plants to grow. They flavor foods, add nutrition extraordinaire, and serve as medicines!

Tucker, and determines which herbs to add to his vegetable, flower, fruit garden. He is required to pick a minimum of four to grow and then use them in cooking or for their nutritive value.

          GARDENING 1001 - Containers for Fresh Air - Inside air can be tons more polluted than outside air, yet few know what to do about it. The solution: GROW FRESH AIR! Yes, if you have been growing an inside container garden you probably do have better fresh air, but let's look at the champs in this department. There are poisonous gases that emit from paint, flooring, carpeting, furniture and more. These can be eradicated and the poisons removed by selecting the right plants for your home. Hence, How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 Houseplants that Purify Your Home or Office by Dr. B.C. Wolverton comes to the rescue. Students study the information, size-up their internal environment and then, with parental approval, begin to grow and propagate plants that increase the air quality in the home. (Do YOU see a business opportunity here? Yes. There are companies that lease plants to businesses and then have a maintenance contract with them. What about schools? Schools are very much in need of FRESH AIR. What a project! What about government offices? Hospitals?? Nursing homes?? What places can you think of which could benefit from Fresh Air?) From the book description:

            How pure is the air you breathe? Plants are the lungs of the earth: they produce the oxygen that makes life possible, add precious moisture, and filter toxins. Houseplants can perform these essential functions in your home or office with the same efficiency as a rainforest in our biosphere. In research designed to create a breathable environment for a NASA lunar habitat, noted scientist Dr. B.C. Wolverton discovered that houseplants are the best filters of common pollutants such as ammonia, formaldehyde, and benzene. Hundreds of these poisonous chemicals can be released by furniture, carpets, and building material, and then trapped by closed ventilation systems, leading to the host of respiratory and allergic reactions now called Sick Building Syndrome. In this full-color, easy-to-follow guide, Dr. Wolverton shows you how to grow and nurture 50 plants as accessible and trouble-free as the tulip and the Boston fern, and includes many beautiful but commonly found varieties not generally thought of as indoor plants. He also rates each plant for its effectiveness in removing pollutants, and its ease of growth and maintenance. Studies show that Americans spend ninety percent of their lives indoors, which means that good indoor air quality is vital for good health. How to Grow Fresh Air will show you how to purify the environment that has the most impact on you.

          GARDENING 1002 - I LIKE WORMS! +++SHOULD START THIS ONE in the Early Fall or Mid-Spring+++ - Yes, they are the best garden helpers ever. During this year, in addition to planning, growing and harvesting the sixth year of Square Foot Gardening, the student AND parent learn about worms, establish a worm bin and grow and use worms in the garden. Required: How to Start a Worm Bin - Your Guide to Getting Started with Worm Composting, available through amazon. This guide will teach the parent what is necessary to know and has tips for the student worm bin and experiments the student can perform. We suggest getting the worms in the fall before it is too cold. Temperatures for shipment must be above 40 and below 85 degrees F. (A possible business opportunity coming out of this course is providing worms to other gardeners!!!) :)

          GARDENING 1101 - Flowers for All Seasons - This course uses, Container Gardening For All Seasons: Enjoy Year Round Color with 101 Designs by Barbara Wise. This is a great book about container gardening flowers and ornamentals to provide year round cheer in the home. From the book description:

            More than a collection of inspiring container gardening photographs, Container Gardening for All Seasons provides a shopping list of materials and a helpful planting diagram for each of the more than 100 container options. Designed like a recipe book, the book offers even the most novice gardeners a no-fail, easy-to-follow instruction format for each container. Gardeners can choose the recipes by season that fit the sun and shade conditions of their landscape. Author Barbara Wise includes all you need to know to plan, plant, grow and maintain a container garden. Fabulous colorful fall and winter container choices are also included.

          Students are required to make four arrangements. (Do YOU see the business opportunity here, too? How many businesses, or homes, for that matter, would like a nice display of one size or another on a year round basis? MMM-- Something to think about.)

          GARDENING 1102 - Growing Up! - You have now, if you started at the beginning, been Square Foot Gardening for six years. This is your seventh. You have grown from 4 square feet to 16 square feet - or more and have learned how to grow a variety of vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs. You have also learned how to over winter your garden and how to protect it from various pests and diseases. NOW, it is time to share your experience and expertise - teach someone else how to become more self-reliant or self-sufficient by helping them establish their own Square Foot Garden. Perhaps, there might be an young couple at church, or an older couple who would like help in establishing a Square Foot Garden. Maybe, you could teach your Home School Group! See the course syllabus for information. NOTE: This, too, can be a business. See the Square Foot Gardening site: http://www.squarefootgardening.com/ and look-up the Instructor Classes. Is this of interest to you? Is there an instructor in your area listed on the website? If not - hey, if this interests you - GO FOR IT!

          GARDENING 1200 - Increasing the Nutrient Quality of Your Food - Uses The Intelligent Gardener: Growing Nutrient Dense Food by Steve Solomon & Erica Reinheimer, available through our store. This is an important and extremely excellent course in how to boost the nutrition of your food. Book description:

            Vegetables, fruits, and grains are a major source of vital nutrients, but centuries of intensive agriculture have depleted our soils to historic lows. As a result, the broccoli you consume today may have less than half of the vitamins and minerals that the equivalent serving would have contained a hundred years ago. This is a matter for serious concern, since poor nutrition has been linked to myriad health problems including cancer, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. For optimum health we must increase the nutrient density of our foods to the levels enjoyed by previous generations.

            To grow produce of the highest nutritional quality the essential minerals lacking in our soil must be replaced, but this re-mineralization calls for far more attention to detail than the simple addition of composted manure or NPK fertilizers. The Intelligent Gardener demystifies the process while simultaneously debunking much of the false and misleading information perpetuated by both the conventional and organic agricultural movements. In doing so, it conclusively establishes the link between healthy soil, healthy food, and healthy people.

            This practical step-by-step guide and the accompanying customizable web-based spreadsheets go beyond organic and are essential tools for any serious gardener who cares about the quality of the produce they grow.

            Steve Solomon is the author of several landmark gardening books including Gardening When it Counts and Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades. The founder of the Territorial Seed Company, he has been growing most of his family's food for over thirty-five years.

          GARDENING 1300 - Growing More! - This course uses the 8th Edition of a text I have used for over two decades: How to Grow More Vegetables, Eighth Edition: (and Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops) Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Ever Imagine by John Jeavons. This is a highly individual matter, depending upon what type of garden you are growing and to what extent you are able to implement the ideas expressed. It is WELL WORTH THE TIME to increase your yields, especially if you want to be able to grow more food for your family, or if you are thinking of earning a bit from your gardening endeavors. Book description:

            Decades before the terms “eco-friendly” and “sustainable growing” entered the vernacular, How to Grow More Vegetables demonstrated that small-scale, high-yield, all-organic gardening methods could yield bountiful crops over multiple growing cycles using minimal resources in a suburban environment. The concept that John Jeavons and the team at Ecology Action launched more than 40 years ago has been embraced by the mainstream and continues to gather momentum. Today, How to Grow More Vegetables, now in its fully revised and updated 8th edition, is the go-to reference for food growers at every level: from home gardeners dedicated to nurturing their backyard edibles in maximum harmony with nature’s cycles, to small-scale commercial producers interested in optimizing soil fertility and increasing plant productivity. Whether you hope to harvest your first tomatoes next summer or are planning to grow enough to feed your whole family in years to come, How to Grow More Vegetables is your indispensable sustainable garden guide.

          GARDENING 1402 - Grains - If you have the room, this course will help you grow a few grains in your suburban or more expansive setting. Growing grains on a small scale is a good skill to know, not only to be able to produce food for a family, but especially as a Preparedness skill. The text for this class is: Homegrown Whole Grains: Grow, Harvest, and Cook Wheat, Barley, Oats, Rice, Corn and More by Sara Pitzer. Book description:

            Learn to grow, harvest, store, grind, and cook nine popular whole grains. Sara Pitzer provides complete instructions for growing your own wheat, corn, barley, millet, oats, rice, rye, spelt, and quinoa, as well as recipes for using these grains in tasty dishes. Cultivating these crops is surprisingly easy, and it takes less space than you might imagine — with just 1,000 square feet of growing space in your backyard, you can grow enough wheat to supply ingredients for 50 loaves of delicious fresh bread.

          What a blessing growing your own could be, Non-GMO and ORGANIC! :)

          GARDENING 1501 - Microgreens - Oh! The blessings of being able to eat microgreens - otherwise known as sprouts, but more. They encapsulate the highest amount of nutrition, are fairly easy to grow, and can turn into a cash crop under the right conditions. (Another $$$ earning opportunity if you have interest, space and time.) The text for this course is Microgreen Garden: Indoor Grower's Guide to Gourmet Greens by Mark Mathew Braunstein. Course and book description:

            Microgreens, the young seedlings of herbs, vegetables, beans, seeds, and grains, contain four to six times the vitamins and phyto-nutrients found in mature leaves of the same plants. This comprehensive resource explains how to grow microgreens at home, both inexpensively and easily. It provides detailed instructions for selecting seeds and soil, along with guidance on proper temperature, light, and ventilation. Also covered are methods for both small- and large-scale growing of microgreens, how to extend harvests, and techniques for preventing contamination by bacteria and mold. Filled with how-to information and vibrant full-color photos by the author, the book explores every aspect of this unique form of gardening. Included is a helpful guide to 55 species of microgreens, which profiles each green according to its flavor, preferred cultivar, special handling needs, and more.

          GARDENING 1502 - Mini-Farming and Self-Sufficiency - This is important if you are the type who wants to make sure you can supply your family's needs or want to make the land you own pay for itself! The text here is Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre Paperback by Brett L. Markham, A Best Seller in Gardening and Landscape Design: (#1 in Fruit, #2 in Organic, and #3 in Reference). Course and book description:

            Start a mini farm on a quarter acre or less, provide 85 percent of the food for a family of four and earn an income.

            Mini Farming describes a holistic approach to small-area farming that will show you how to produce 85 percent of an average family’s food on just a quarter acre—and earn $10,000 in cash annually while spending less than half the time that an ordinary job would require. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying and saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, crop rotation, farm planning, and much more. Because self-sufficiency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high. Materials, tools, and techniques are detailed with photographs, tables, diagrams, and illustrations.

          You may not have a 1/4 Acre to work with, but this course teaches you to make the most of what you do have, (even if it is more)!

          GARDENING 1600 - Gardening for an Income - Whether you are a container or a Square Foot gardener, you can use the principles in this course to earn extra income from your property. Coming on the tails of Gardening 1002 - Mini-Farming and Self-Sufficiency, this course seals the deal with all you need to know to make Growing for a Profit profitable. The course follows the outline of the text: The Urban Farmer: Growing Food for Profit on Leased and Borrowed Land by Curtis Allen Stone, #1 Best Seller in Green Business. :) Book description:

            There are twenty million acres of lawns in North America. In their current form, these unproductive expanses of grass represent a significant financial and environmental cost. However, viewed through a different lens, they can also be seen as a tremendous source of opportunity. Access to land is a major barrier for many people who want to enter the agricultural sector, and urban and suburban yards have huge potential for would-be farmers wanting to become part of this growing movement.

            The Urban Farmer is a comprehensive, hands-on, practical manual to help you learn the techniques and business strategies you need to make a good living growing high-yield, high-value crops right in your own backyard (or someone else's). Major benefits include:

          1. Low capital investment and overhead costs
          2. Reduced need for expensive infrastructure
          3. Easy access to markets
          4. Growing food in the city means that fresh crops may travel only a few blocks from field to table, making this innovative approach the next logical step in the local food movement.

            Based on a scalable, easily reproduced business model, The Urban Farmer is your complete guide to minimizing risk and maximizing profit by using intensive production in small leased or borrowed spaces.

            Curtis Stone is the owner/operator of Green City Acres, a commercial urban farm growing vegetables for farmers markets, restaurants, and retail outlets. During his slower months, Curtis works as a public speaker, teacher, and consultant, sharing his story to inspire a new generation of farmers.

                        ** ART 1500 - SECONDARY ART II, Part 1
                          This course, after a few preliminaries, is an STUDENT'S CHOICE COURSE. That means that the book we advise that you purchase is jam-packed with wonderful art lessons and projects - of which YOU, the Student, choose what you will do. We ask you to peruse the book thoroughly, then sit down and make a list of the projects you would like to do. Lastly, prioritize by determining for which projects you have the most passion - and BEGIN! PST! Please remember to include Quarterly Craft projects and 16 days for holiday art. The text is $23.67 new from amazon and is used for the 1500, 1600, & 1700 level art courses.

                          After the initial chapter, which will NOT be of interest to you, the text delves into Elements of Art, Principles of Design and Art History. Next come the activity sections: Drawing - 17 projects; Painting - 18 projects; Printmaking - 21 projects; Photography - 14 projects; Computer Graphics - 19 projects; Fine Crafts - Fibers, Book Arts and Ceramics - 14 projects; Sculpture and Architecture - 26 projects; Careers in Art - 19 projects. This totals 148 projects altogether, most of which have multiple week time lines. Therefore, it is not unrealistic to expect that you may want to repeat the course a second, or even a third year with totally new projects.

                          Note: Some art terms are not explained in the book. Most of these, with physical demonstrations, can be found on youtube or elsewhere on the internet. This is a 'grown-up' art course and you are expected to research and learn the terms and techniques you need for your projects, as not all of these are thoroughly explained in the book. Nevertheless, the book is a treasure-trove of artistic ideas, each of which includes notes for the teacher(parent) and information for the student. 180 days; Thirteen page syllabus details times for craft and holiday projects, if so desired.
