Cornerstone Cottage School Home Schooling Together! Cottage Schools are undefined in Colorado. For us, it is neither in a cottage, nor is it a school. A "Cottage School" is a learning center where parents and teachers partner to create the best educational opportunities for home-schooled students.
Cross-Curricular ~ connections that exist between concepts, vocabulary, and skills from different subject areas (including the arts), particularly those connections that lead to deeper understanding. Integrated Curriculum ~ educators and artists working collaboratively to create a plan to advance educational objectives in the arts and other curricular areas. .
*Our goals are to share the administrative load of home school by providing lesson plans, helping with grading and other record keeping, and purposeful field trips.
*We want to offer parents the opportunity to teach the subjects that they enjoy in their home schooling.
*We want to provide small co-op style Literature and History tracks where students who learn in different ways can find a teacher that is teaching at an appropriate level and style that fits their needs. Each teacher presents the same material, but in way that they love teaching.
*We want to continuously improve our classes by working as a team with our parents, teachers and section leaders by listening to suggestions, changing as needed, and rethinking patterns that are not working.
*We want to work towards having the family learning history and (when possible) science along together. We love the idea of families having conversation around the dinner table that can feed off of each other.
