  If this is your first Online Unit Study....


Welcome to Online Unit Studies! Whether you are a new user and old friend, I'm really glad you signed up.

Online Unit Studies are tech-based discovery learning experiences. I’ve done lots of research to find the best learning resources the web has to offer, and then laid it all out in an organized sequence of modules and lessons.

And guess what? You don’t need to download or print anything unless you really want to. No more piles of papers that you eventually “stash in the trash”? No more e-Books with broken links and outdated clipart. And no more piles of “additional resources” that you need to gather and put in the “schooltime basket”. The only tangible items you need for Online Unit Studies are supplies for hands-on projects, which we try to keep pretty common (no pig eyes needed). Everything is “right at your fingertips” - literally.

You should have received an email from me with a short list of "To-dos" before you get started. Did you get it? If not, check your "Promotions" or "Spam" folders. If you haven't done the tasks yet, I encourage you to do them now. Here's a summary of the "to-dos". I've made it easy for you to just click each here.


Working through any Online Unit Study is pretty easy, as long as you can remember the phrase "Just Click." Your family will “just click” through modules with multiple lessons to access websites and videos. Typically, each module can be completed in one sitting, but, since Online Unit Studies are self-paced, your family can decide what works best for you. And you can decide who will participate. The studies are designed for students who can read and navigate around the Internet, but younger siblings (and Grandma) can follow along too.

Wondering how to navigate? Easy peasy. After you finish a lesson, "just click" the "Compete and Continue" bar at the top of the page. Whenever you encounter website image or hyperlinks (aka those blue words), "just click" and your learning materials will open in a new tab. And when you see a video, "just click" to start it. If you get lost, just look at the course menu on the left. And if you have trouble understanding this, just ask the kids. It’s all second-nature to them.

Oh, and know how people think home educated kids are unsocialized? Well, our comments sections will take care of that “issue”. Whenever you see comments at the bottom of a lesson, check them out. You will feel a sense of community as you see what other families are doing. And be sure to share some of your family’s projects, so your kids will have a proper 21st-century “socialization” opportunity. Have fun!!
