From A Tapestry of Grace’s website:
Tapestry of Grace is a plan of study that helps parents provide a Christian, classical education using a guided unit study approach, with the history of the world as the core organizational theme. From Grades K–12, all students cycle through world history every four years, with all ages studying the same slice of history each week, each at their own learning level. Detailed lesson plans and discussion outlines enable parents to be their children’s primary teachers and mentors and shape their students’ biblical worldviews.
Most Tapestry assignments are divided into four distinct learning levels. These levels roughly correspond with certain age ranges, but are broad enough that you can adjust your student up and down as suits his individual development.
Lower Grammar: grades K-3, or a non-fluent reader who enjoys learning basic facts.
Upper Grammar: grades 3-6, or an independent reader who enjoys memorizing concrete, sequential facts.
Dialectic: Grades 6-9, or a student who readst to learn and enjoys making connections and learning to debate.
Rhetoric: Grades 9-12, or a student who reads the Great Books and enjoys analyzing and synthesizing ideas and arguments.
(The overlap of grade levels is intentional. Students develop at different rates, while traditional grade levels are tied to chronological ages. Tapestry is designed for stages, not ages.)
