What’s Included in The Good and The Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum

TGTB isn’t just a literature curriculum. This homeschool curriculum is for all grades, is Christian based, and emphasizes literature study. However, in the younger grades there is an integration of math and science where as in the older grades students are covering mainly literature, geography, art, composition, spelling, and vocabulary. The Good and The Beautiful is just that, it is beautifully laid out. For those of you who are looking for a free homeschool curriculum, TGTB also offers their lower grades as free downloadable pdfs. Yes, seriously, you heard that right. You can head to their site and download printable versions of the curriculum for free.

Ways to Use The Good and The Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum

We used The Good and The Beautiful for Middle School and High School and found that the curriculum was very enjoyable and really encouraged my children to read more (one of our weaknesses). It is beautifully designed and structured. We were able to move into an independent learning rhythm with this curriculum and my students were able to schedule their own studies throughout each book they studied. We loved that geography and art was integrated throughout. The art was a nice creative reprieve from typical study. We used this curriculum in conjunction with other math and science homeschooling curriculum.

 

Student Comment about The Good and The Beautiful

“This was our first year using The Good and The Beautiful for Middle School Literature study. I enjoyed reading the book about Abraham Lincoln and studying him in more detail. I liked how this course used art as part of the study because I got to draw during literature class.” Chloe ~ GA
