My name is Virginia Knowles. I have ten children, ages 8 to 26. I started actively teaching my first daughter in her preschool years in the very early 1990's. I've certainly learned a lot in more than two decades of home schooling!
As of spring 2014, I teach in a small private Christian school, but will be home schooling my youngest daughter next year, as well as teaching integrated world history, literature, writing, and arts appreciation classes to home school students.
Many of the articles on this blog, especially the literature and vocabulary posts, are adapted from lessons I used in my home school co-op classroom from 2006-2013.
Others, including some video posts, are from workshops I have presented at the Books and Beyond literature conference in Orlando.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this blog, and welcome any ideas for future articles or improvements.
