If your high school student just wants to take a class or two but you don’t want to commit to joining coop, you can pay for my classes and several other co-op classes. Your student can come with or without a parent and sign up for one or two classes without the work commitment from mom (or dad). The classes offered for pay students are:
- Cooking to Live
- American Short Stories
- Current Events
- Ready? (Worldview class for ages 16 and above only)
- Bible Story Isn’t Boring
To sign up for pay classes or for more information, please contact Karri Wilson at (989) 660-4790 or email@example.com.
American Short Stories – taught by Lisa Wagner and Darlene Hamblin
Thought-provoking Socratic (question-based) discussions focusing on literary analysis will bring students face-to-face with some of America’s best short stories so they can know themselves more fully as God’s creatures. Mrs. Hamblin and Mrs. Wagner will encourage students to ponder well-designed questions about structure, style, context, and theme in every story they read. Opportunities for extracurricular enrichment will periodically be offered. Note: Students must be in 9th-12th grade.
