SCIENCES

 
Science and History: Christi Smith, Home2bluebonnets@gmail.com, I am happy to be entering my 22nd year in teaching this fall. I received my teaching degree from Texas Tech University in 2000 and have taught all ages in homeschool, co-op, private, and public school settings. I have four kids ranging in age from sixteen to ten. I love teaching and helping others in their homeschooling journeys. I am excited about the opportunity to teach your students at the CHC.


High School Chemistry 
Wednesdays 9 am-10:30 am CHC

Discovering Design with Chemistry is a high school chemistry course designed for students who have completed Algebra I. This honors college-preparatory course covers fundamental aspects of chemistry such as the classification of matter, atomic structure, spectroscopy, stoichiometry, solutions, ideal gases, acid/base chemistry, reduction/oxidation reactions, thermodynamics, kinetics, and chemical equilibrium. Weaving together concepts and their mathematical applications, the course teaches students how to think as a chemist so they can analyze the major changes that occur in matter.

We will meet each Wednesday to complete labs. I will have a weekly checklist for each student, so they will know the readings and homework to complete throughout the week. This is a graded course. I work with students to meet their learning styles and provide help as they travel through High School Chemistry. We will be using Discovering Design with Chemistry by Dr. Jay Wile as our text. It can be found used or at bereanbuilders.com. The book is also available in audio form for our auditory learners. The student will also need a 1” 3-Ring Binder and a composition book. 

Cost: One-time materials fee - $45(includes labs and printed workbook),  $55/month, Ask me about discounts.

High School Biology
Wednesdays 3 pm-4 pm CHC

I am excited to be teaching Biology with Dr. Wile’s new book Discovering Design with Biology. This course is a laboratory-based high school biology course. It is a college prep class(Honours). It can also be adapted to a regular level Biology class. It gives the student an introduction to how living organisms are designed, how they interact with one another, and how they interact with their physical environment.  Students are taught how biologists classify life, the chemical processes that make life possible, the structures of RNA and DNA, and the designs of the different cells found in living organisms.  Students also learn the means by which photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and cellular reproduction occur. They then learn about the current state of biotechnology.  With the molecular and cellular basis of life covered, the students are then given a survey of the different kinds of organisms found in nature: archaea, bacteria, protists, fungi, invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants. The students then learn the biogeochemical cycles that keep environments hospitable to life, which leads to a discussion of ecosystems. Throughout the course, students see that life is the result of design and that organisms have been given the ability to adapt to their surroundings. In addition, they learn about various problems associated with modern evolutionary synthesis.

We will meet each Wednesday to complete the labs, microscope work, and dissections. We will also review material and answer questions. I will have a weekly checklist for each student, so they will know the readings and homework to complete throughout the week. This is a graded course. I work with students to meet their learning styles and provide help as they travel through Biology. The student will also need a 1” 3-Ring Binder, a set of 32 colored pencils, and a composition book. The class is designed as an honors biology class and provides one high school science credit.

Cost: One-time materials fee - $45 (which includes labs, printed notebook, and dissections)

I love, love, love to talk about the Old Testament!  Just ask any of my students from last year’s world-view classes!  My degree is in Biblical studies.  

This course aims to give your student a big-picture overview of the Old Testament in historical context and outline.  We will look at the major players, discuss where they belong within the context of ancient history, and how they are part of the greater story of Jesus throughout the entire Bible. This is not a denominational course.  This course can be used as a history credit or an English credit, or a half-credit of each (if you are counting in middle school).  There will be a semester paper/project per semester and it is an academic course with weekly homework. 

When?

Mondays 11-11:55 a.m., back classroom in the back room. 

Who? 5th-8th grade

Cost: $10/class or prepay the semester and get a discount: 

$120 for the first semester (13 classes) and $160 for the second semester (17 classes).   

Ask me about sibling discounts.

Application fee: $30.  It is non-refundable but counts for all materials/copies I’ll be handing out.
All class payments are non-refundable.

Logic (Mondays, 10 a.m.)

Carrie McClung teachercarriebba@gmail.com

We’ll be going through “The Fallacy Detective” as a class. Let your student learn logic in the context of a classroom where we can debate, watch and analyze debate, and put some of this rather dry material into practice.  This is an academic course with weekly homework.  

High School Apologetics, Wednesdays 3pm: Suzanne Gose (Suzanne.Gose@gmail.com

This is a course focusing on knowing and discovering what you believe and why.

Asking the hard questions and asking why and why and why again. I have been delving into this topic more and more and realize — it’s not only important, it’s the MOST important. My eldest three, Mitch, Jake, and Annagail have all taken this class, and Audie will be in it this year as a 10th grader. It will be relaxed, and have just two homework assignments per week, focused on discussion. Cost is $30/month and is payable monthly rather than weekly. We will not have any classes in December or May for this course. So: this class will run three months in the fall, 4 months in the spring. Our text is "I don't have enough Faith to be an Atheist" with a sprinkling of other Ken Ham resources, Geology and Fossil Course Excerpts, and CS Lewis Books. Textbook fees are $25  to cover the text and guide.
