Tapestry of Grace


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.)

    Tapestry of Grace is very in-depth and includes lots of resources – with activity pages,
    online links, hands on projects, writing assignments, integrated philosophy. It works well for all the different ages I’m teaching at home. It’s a Christian perspective and it works well for us.

    This is our first year with Tapestry and I only wish we would have found it sooner.
    TOG has four years that you repeat through the years. It follows the classical method.
    I love how complete it is. It gives you plans for all grades from 1st through 12th making it much easier to school multiple ages/grades. That also helps if you have children that fluctuate between a couple/few grade levels.
    It does take some planning for day to day assignments but the depth of study is worth that trade off.
    The books they choose are fun yet packed with information. Many of the books we have been able to find through our library so that helps keep the cost down. Also after your first purchase of a year you only purchase what books you need/want, which helps the budget as well.
    They have optional pop quizes, tests, and lapbooks which help add to the already thorough unit study.
    There is so much wrapped up into TOG that it is very thorough and fun. The activities, end of unit celebrations and books make for a fun way to learn.
    I would highly recommend this to any homeschooler.
