Convention Coupons, Excellence in Literature, and other Good News
There are several interesting things happening this coming weekend. The CHAP convention will take place Friday and Saturday, May 8-9, in Harrisburg, PA. While I won’t be there personally, due to a very unfortunate conflict, I sent my able assistant Matt Wade to manage the Everyday Education booth (#1006, right by Tobin’s Lab).
Be sure to stop by and say hello and use the Convention Coupons I’ve made for you. There are three special offers you can use while you’re at the convention, but if you can’t make it to the convention, you will be able to use them on the website as well. Just visit the Coupon page between Friday and Sunday, and you’ll be able to enjoy the specials.
You’ll be able to see hot-off-the-press copies of Introduction to Literature, the first volume in the Excellence in Literature series at CHAP. Other than at the website (www.ExcellenceInLiterature.com), the four conventions listed below will be the only place you can get Intro to Lit for awhile. I’m trying to get the second and fifth levels (Literature and Composition; World Literature) out by summer, so that you can have them before school starts in the fall.
There’s another interesting sale happening this weekend. Lynda Coats, the author of Far Above Rubies and Blessed is the Man unit studies, is working to raise money to return in the fall as a missionary teacher to Native American children.
She’s offering 13 valuable bonuses with the purchase of the long-awaited FAR or BITM unit studies. These curricula have been very hard to find recently, so this is a wonderful opportunity! If you love unit studies and are looking for one for high school, be sure to check out this sale. It will run until May 15 only.
Finally, George Wythe College is running a beta version of online classes this summer. Tuition is heavily discounted: “For this summer only, undergraduates will be able to take up to 7 credits for only $550 in the part-time option, and up to 14 credits for $750 in the full-time option.”
This is a remarkable savings, and a good opportunity to take a few classes. According to the website, “Summer Semester will run on an accelerated schedule from May 18 to July 17. Full-time students will attend class online twice weekly, while part-time students will meet once a week.” Registration closes May 11.
