Astronomy for the Logic Stage
One-semester course. This class studies astronomy at a logic-stage level by making use of Astronomy for the Logic Stage Student Guide (Well-Trained Mind Press edition), and The Kingfisher Science Encyclopedia (KSE), as well as numerous instructor-assigned supplemental materials. Students will use various internet-based sources, time lines, summaries, and outlines to learn about astronomy, from the earliest stargazing to the newest scientific discoveries.
We signed up for another WTMA course in the fall so I guess that's a good review! This was a fantastic course. My child was inspired to learn more and more. - Parent Evaluation Spring
