Yesterday’s mail brought a catalog from The Great Courses. This company produces educational DVDs and CDs: college courses taught by some of this country’s top professors.
Through April 4, many of these courses on sale for 80% off. This is a great bargain for anyone, but I’m thinking especially of homeschooling families, many of which aren’t exactly rolling in money since they tend to be single-income families.
One example: give your teens a top-of-the-line writing course from the University of Iowa (their writing program is very well-known): 24 30-minute lectures will cost you just $34.95 on DVD or $24.95 on CD. (Normally this course costs $179.95-$254.95). Remember, you can reuse these courses with your younger kids when they reach the teen years, saving you even more in the long run.
