Memoria Press is the tool we have decided on as the core of our coop. I have been home educating my children primarily for the last 23 years. This fall we will begin our sixth year using Memoria. There is a long story of how I got there, but it immediately worked its way into my heart as a beautiful, simple and effective tool to get the job done! They use the saying “multum, non multa” which means much not many. They slow down in the early years, breaking lessons down into wonderfully small bites, incorporating recitation, repetition and memory work. Then there was the Latin issue, such a scary and foreign idea to me. I had known many who used Latin roots but didn’t personally know anyone in my area that made it central to their curriculum. Three years of waffling, researching and finally with the help of my husbands counsel I fully embraced Latin. I can now wholeheartedly testify to its value and rightful place as “center”. Should you have questions regarding “why Latin?" Please don’t hesitate to ask, we did, over and over, and more knowledgeable people than myself answered again and again.
