Ten Unforgettable Web Memes
(How many are you familiar with? This is interesting!)
What Defines a Meme?
(Here we find out that Richard Dawkins coined the word in 1976.)
On with the questions!
1. One homeschooling book you have enjoyed -
For the Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay
2. One resource you wouldn't be without -
One? Come on, I can't do that!
First would be the canvas tote that holds my morning readings. (Gratefulness Journal, Bible, Pen, A Diary of Prayer by Goudge, Scale How Meditations by Mason, Edges of His Ways by Carmichael and yes, Our Daily Bread)
Second would have to be Charlotte Mason's Original Homeschooling Series (6 volume set).
3. One resource you wish you had never bought -
About 10 years ago, I bought a Switched-On Schoolhouse - Minnesota History course. The contrast in method was so jarring to us, it was quickly returned. Besides, I have since found some wonderful living books for our Minnesota history.
4. One resource you enjoyed last year -
I enjoyed my ipad. It has enhanced some of our schooling while cuddled up on the couch. Have you seen Victoria Falls at Google Earth? Quick - how do we pronounce Couperin? My collection of 225 Yesterday's Classics titles is rather delicious, too.
5. One resource you will be using next year -
Well, I hope to dig in deeper at the Charlotte Mason Digital Collection. The upper level exam examples are, IMHO, breathtaking.
6. One resource you would like to buy -
I would like to buy a camper - does that count?
7. One resource you wish existed -
I have wished this resource existed and know now that it will exist very soon! It's taken up much of my time over the past year. Here's a blurb about it -
Non-profit ChildLightUSA Developing New Mason Curriculum
Dedicated to recovering and promoting Charlotte Mason's educational theories and practices, ChildLightUSA is developing a curriculum meticulously modeled after what Mason describes in her six volumes. A seven-member Design Team is changing the current paradigm of education, collaborating on a rich, modern and flexible K-12 Mason curriculum. This new curriculum will feature Mason distinctives such as 18 subjects per grade level for use in various educational venues including public, charter, private and web-based learning communities. The projected release date is fall of 2012.
8. One homeschool catalog you enjoy reading -
Honestly, I don't read any. At least not in the past 5 years or so. Is that weird?
9. One homeschool website you use regularly -
That's easy - Ambleside Online. I mainly use it because of the wonderful search engine. It is so helpful for any research and writing.
