1 additional session

Registration for this class has moved to: Archaeology and the Bible | Jumbula


Archaeology & the Bible is a hand's on/lab approach to understanding this fascinating topic. Students will progress through all phases of an archaeological dig, while digging deeper into many phases of this science, such as site location & survey, tools, timelines, conducting a dig, pottery, tools, ancient writing types, anthropology, radiometric dating, agriculture and daily life, all cast in the realm of the book of Genesis, specifically Gen 18-19, and the catastrophic event that caused the destruction of Biblical Sodom. Learning "through a variety of biblically-based academic disciplines, to uphold the divine authority of the Bible as God’s only inspired representation of reality to humankind, and equipping them to apply its eternal truths to all phases of life." (TSU Mission)

The 10 unit study will end with a trip to the Trinity South West Museum.

This ancient city is currently being excavated by Dr. Steven Collins, and I am collaborating with them in this project. The Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project (TeHEP) is a joint scientific project between Trinity Southwest University's College of Archaeology & Biblical History (Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA), Veritas International University's College of Archaeology & Biblical History (Santa Ana, California, USA) and the Department of Antiquities of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

Personal Finance - Middle School

Calendar Next session starts Sep 14, 2021 at 10:30 am, runs for 12 weeks

Registration for this course has moved to:


This course makes use of the Dave Ramsey Foundations in Personal Finance: Middle School curriculum, which is a 9-week curriculum.  The curriculum includes video instruction as well as activities and a student text.  My goal is to complete all activities and textbook work in class.  Students should not expect to have "bookwork" to complete outside of class unless they do not complete the activities during class.  Instead, homework will involve observing, practicing and thinking about money in their daily lives.  In addition, we will be supplementing the curriculum with some experiential learning by planning and operating a small business venture.  *During weeks 7, 8 and 9 we will be operating the business and we will have the need for some of the students to stay until 12:45 during these 3 weeks.  This will be a fun opportunity for them.  As some students have classes starting at 1:00 we will make sure they have the opportunity for a quick lunch and get to their next class on time.  Please plan to have your student stay an extra 15 minutes these weeks if possible.

*Poetry Memorization (using Linguistic Development Through Poetry Memorization from IEW)*Grammar (Fix It from IEW)

This class is designed to complement the All Things Fun and Fascinating IEW class offered at 9:30.  Fix It is a curriculum that reinforces IEW concepts and integrates grammar instruction.  The basic format is to proofread and correctly rewrite a classic story, 10 sentences per week.  Linguistic Development Through Poetry Memorization is simply memorizing poems.  Why?  Because, as IEW’s beloved Andrew Pudewa explains,  it is “a vital source of powerful and significant linguistic patterning.”  In other words, it is a great way to foster your child’s language development.  Homework will include assignments for poetry memorization, and “Fix It” exercises. 

For 3rd-5th grade or if enrolled in All Things Fun and Fascinating

This class is one semester.  If there is enough demand, it will be offered again in the spring.
