Nothing says "Christmas break" like vampires and werewolves! Join Mrs. Eleanor Nicholson and Homeschool Connections for a Gothic book club, reading Mrs. Nicholson's novels!
Total book club meetings: 4 Club dates: Wednesdays, Dec. 14, Dec. 21, Jan. 4, Jan. 11. Starting time: 2:30 PM Eastern (1:30 Central, 12:30 Mountain, 11:30 Pacific) Duration: 60 minutes per club meeting Prerequisite: Read the books before club meeting (see Parental Warning below) Suggested grade level: 9th to 12th grade (see Parental Warning below). Suggested credit: ⅓ semester Gothic Literature Fee: $19.95 for all four book club meetings. (Registration closes one week before the first day of class. After that date, registrations are not guaranteed. There is a $20 surcharge for late enrollments after the course is closed.) Book Club Leader: Mrs. Eleanor Bourg Nicholson, author of the books (!) Book club description: Join Mrs. Eleanor Nicholson in reading her two Gothic novels, A Bloody Habit and Brother Wolf. In addition to having a lot of fun (and having the daylights scared out of us all), we will learn about Gothic fiction, folklore, and the writing “process”! Book club outline: (day by day) Week 1: A Bloody Habit Week 2: A Bloody Habit Week 3: Brother Wolf Week 4: Brother Wolf Books: A Bloody Habit [Ignatius Press], https://ignatius.com/abloodyhabitblhp/ AND Brother Wolf [Chrism Press], https://chrismpress.com/books/brotherwolf/ Homework: This is not a class! Read the books and have fun! PARENTAL WARNING (from Mrs. Nicholson) This book club is NOT appropriate for students younger than 9th grade. A Bloody Habit and Brother Wolf are Gothic novels written according to the rules of the genre. That means a strong preternatural presence and some violence (almost entirely "offstage"). My tone is very Victorian, so it's pretty pedestrian by today's standards. Nevertheless, recognizing vampires as evil, preternatural bloodsuckers means dancing on the edges of the Church's teaching on demonology "the edges" because I personally cannot stomach the details of exorcisms and leave them to the experts. Further, the novel is deliberately humorous in the midst of some intense themes. Nevertheless, I want to be quite upfront about the content. If your student would be frightened by Dracula (which is, at moments, quite frightening), your student will be frightened by my books. In my classes, we always pledge we won't give away plot points, etc. We'll do the same here but with this very important codicil: if your student is reading and is frightened or disturbed, you can email me to ask any questions I will answer them, even if you're asking me to reveal the fate of a character. Your student's ability to sleep is more important than maintaining absolute suspense. (Also I flatter myself that I can continue to entertain, even if you know what is going to happen.) Additionally, in A Bloody Habit especially, setting of the Gothic and the particular context of my novel involve a close look at the legacy of English antiCatholicism. My narrator, in fact, is a strongly antiCatholic agnostic. As I will explain in our meetings, this makes him quite perfect as a narrator in this genre. Other characters include a representative of the High Decadent movement, occultists, Masons, addictlike vampire victims, carnage brought about by feral werewolves, and gypsies. Depending on the age of your student, any or all of these could be shocking. In the end, I think both of these novels are more about goodness than about any of the above. While we will not have quizzes or tests, I plan to guide the students through the above themes. If any of you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me! More

Register for Geometry with Mrs. Nardozzi to dive deep into the incredible world of two and threedimensional shapes as created by our majestic God. We will learn how to think critically about math situations which will help us build a way of logically coming to truthful conclusions. This is a skill desperately needed in our world!
Special Notes: This is a 2part course. Students are expected to also sign up for Part Two in the spring. Each lesson from the textbook will have a recording for students to watch before meeting for the live class. Total classes: 14 Class Dates: Mondays, January 9 to April 24, 2023 (No class February 20 for midsemester break or April 3 for Holy Week) Starting time: 1:00 PM Eastern (Noon Central 11:00 Mountain 10:00 Pacific) Duration: 55 minutes per class Prerequisite: Algebra 1 Suggested grade level: 9th to 11th grade Suggested credit: One full semester Math or Geometry Fee: $227 if you register on or before November 15. $247 after November 15. (Registration closes one week before the first day of class. After that date, registrations are not guaranteed. There is a $20 surcharge for late enrollments after the course is closed.) Instructor: Emily Nardozzi Course description: Each lesson from the textbook will have a recording for students to watch before meeting for the live class. This means that there will be 23 recordings (around 1520 minutes long) for students to watch before we meet. In the live class, the teacher will answer questions and lead the students through practice problems. This course will allow students to study the size, shape, and characteristics of two and threedimensional shapes. It will also increase a student's capacity to think using logic and critical thinking skills. In McDougal Littell students are introduced to proof early in the text. At first they are given the proof with pieces of the proof missing that are to be filled in by the students. After this is practiced, students will then be asked to create a twocolumn proof from start to finish. The text is not full of proofs, but they are continually sprinkled throughout the text so that students continue to see them and continue to get stronger writing them. Tests and quizzes will not be full of proofs but will likely have a proof to fill in and occasionally do completely on their own. The textbook itself has large, easy to read print. It has a combination of several practice problems for students to grow in their comfort of the new topic and then also some application problems that are more challenging. Course outline: Week 1: Transformations Week 2: Transformations Week 3: Similarity Week 4: Similarity Week 5: Right Triangles and Trigonometry Week 6: Right Triangles and Trigonometry Week 7: Right Triangles and Trigonometry Week 8: Circles Week 9: Circles Week 10: Circles Week 11: Area of Polygons and Circles Week 12: Area of Polygons and Circles Week 13: Surface Area and Volume Week 14: Surface Area and Volume Course materials: Geometry, Grades 912: Mcdougal Littell High School Math (McDougal Littell High Geometry) 10th Edition, ISBN: 0618250220 (https://amzn.to/3sqIZU8). Plus, compass, protractor, ruler, graph paper (this can be printed when needed from the internet), and a scientific calculator that contains the basic trigonometric functions (buttons for sin, cos, tan). A TI30XIIS calculator will be sufficient. Homework: Each week we will cover two to three lessons from the text which means students will be completing 23 homework assignments. Students should plan to spend around 3040 minutes on each homework assignment. Daily homework is selfgraded using the back of the textbook with weekly checkpoint quizzes and chapter tests graded by Mrs. Nardozzi. More

Taking the concepts learned in the 7/81 and 7/82 courses, the successful student finishing this course has the tools and is ready for successful high school essay writing. Take the 7/84 course with this course to gain a full semester’s credit of writing.
Special Notes: This course, a continuation of the Simplified Writing series for 7/8 students, is scheduled during several different time slots in the spring semester. The smaller class size ensures excellent feedback on your student’s work. This is the third of a fourpart series. Continue with the MS 7/8 Series for a full year of Writing. Total Classes: 8 Class Dates and Starting Times: Mondays, January 9 to February 27, 2023 4:00 PM Eastern (3:00 Central 2:00 Mountain 1:00 Pacific) Duration: 55 minutes per class Prerequisite: Registration in Simplified Writing for Middle School 2: Introduction to Essays & Papers I (MS 7/82). The prerequisites may also be taken in recording through the Unlimited Access program. To check eligibility to skip the prerequisite, an assessment is available.

Instructor: Reilly Starrett Course Description: It’s time to help your student dive into longer essays and advanced writing concepts used in high school! In this course, your student will put all previous writing knowledge and skills learned into practice, writing for longer pieces with specific feedback and coaching to help your student's writing improve. Your student will go through the starttofinish process of creating an upperlevel academic essay, with special attention given to choosing the right rhetoric, diction, and syntax (words and order) while specifically tackling your student’s weaknesses to give your student the critical writing improvement and practice needed for upperlevel writing. While previous classes taught the “how and why” of writing skills (with firsttime introductions to ideas), this course gives your student critical practice that allows the knowledge to “sink in” within actual writing, to master those skills under the tutelage of a teacher and professional writer and be fully prepared for high school writing and beyond. Course Outline: Class 1: Types of essays – an introduction to rhetoric and choosing an essay topic Class 2: Narrowing topics (from last class) brainstorming content for your topic and creating the thesis statement Class 3: Analyzing and improving thesis statements (from last class) creating outlines Class 4: Analyzing and improving outlines (from last class) creating introductions Class 5: Creating rough drafts Class 6: Revising the essay Class 7: Editing the essay Class 8: Formatting for the academic essay an introduction to style guides Course Materials: Course materials are included free. Microsoft Word or the ability to convert a document to a Wordcompatible document is required, as all assignments are submitted in Word. If you do not own Microsoft Word, you can use a system such as Google Docs that converts to Word documents FREE.

Over both semesters, we will cover a wide range of topics, including Structure of Matter, States of Matter, Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, Equilibrium, and Thermochemistry. We will also consider how Chemistry is important in our daytoday life. There will be three tracks through this class: Chemistry – This is the classic Chemistry class that most students will opt for. Honors Chemistry – When students on the Chemistry track earn enough extra credit, they have completed enough challenging material to list this course as Honors Chemistry. This option is designed for academically gifted students or those who have a desire to complete more rigorous work. The extra credit is available to all students, even if they are not attempting Honors Chemistry. General Chemistry – This option is a bit less intense the math is a bit easier, students skip a few topics, and the required assignments are a bit easier. This option is designed for students who struggle, or those with limited time or desire. This option is only available by parent request. Requests must be made before the first day of class. Course outline: Topic 1: Chemical Quantities Topic 2: Chemical Reaction Topic 3: Stoichiometry Topic 4: States of Matter Topic 5: Solutions Topic 6: Thermochemistry Topic 7: Reaction Rates and Equilibrium Topic 8: Acids and Bases Topic 9: Nuclear Chemistry Course materials and technology: 1.
