We have been thrilled with Ms. Christine’s class California Out of the Box. She interweaves science and history with living books and hands on activities. She is warm, patient and enthusiastic. Not only is this a high quality curriculum, Ms. Christine knows just how to motivate my 9 year old son to happily write paragraphs! What a gift it to have the author teaching the material the way she envisioned! Her curriculum is already fantastic, but if your child has the chance to take the class in person, grab it!-Charis (mom of 9 year old boy)
Christine will offer 2 live California history classes for homeschoolers — both in the San Gabriel Valley — starting Fall 2020. Both locations are superb. If you are out of the area — good news! She will offer one online class. Pick your day…it’s gonna be fun!
All classes will accept charter school funds through Home School Coaches. (Both live classes will go online, if there are still restrictions in place about meeting in person.)

California History: Literature & Projects
In this hour-long class, using an interdiciplinary literature-approach, over the course of one year, students will read 4 literature books; elementary-aged students will get a great bearing in California history through weekly fun projects, games, and optional writing and Student Folder assignments. Matters of history, habitats, earth science, and geography will be touched upon.
Online California Out of the Box Class
Not in the San Gabriel Valley area? We want to make our classes available to you. Classes will meet in a live online platform (details TBD), and use Google Classroom for assignments. See this page for enrollment information in the California Out of the Box (online) California history class; once the course fills, we will begin a wait list.
