Another reason to love homeschooling high school




Reading Canto V of The Inferno to my kids, with Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini for the soundtrack. 





And check out these illustrations from a 14th century manuscript. They are copyright protected which is why you can't see them here.  

I've been waiting to share Dante with my kids for a long time.  Rather than just hand the book off to them to go through alone, I'm reading it aloud.  We spend a good bit of time talking about it.  I suppose I should make them do some sort of writing on it, or at least give them a quiz.   Talk of putting a grade on "work" like this requires another post, another time. For now...

This is what makes my homeschooling heart sing.

We may be reading that in another few years! would like to share that book with my children. I think for now, the reading and discussion is probably sufficient, but that's just my humble opinion!

Hi there! I'm creating a blogroll of blogs that blog (at least occasionally) about homeschooling high school. (http://letshomeschoolhighschool.com/homeschool-high-school-blogs/) I came across yours today and would LOVE to add it. If you would consider this, could you email me? katie@letshomeschoolhighschool.com. Thanks in advance! Blessings...
