5. Register Now for Spring Constitutional Law Online

Time is running out for students to register for the spring semester
of Constitutional Law Online, taught by Michael Farris, Chairman of
Home School Legal Defense Association and Chancellor of Patrick Henry
College. Registration ends the first day of class, January 5, 2009.
The course concludes June 1, 2009.

If you've always wanted to learn more about the history and background
of our legal system, from a biblical perspective, or if you're looking
for a good U.S. government class for your homeschooled students, then
this class is for you! This internet-based course follows Michael
Farris' textbook, "Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens," and
uses a computer-based audio CD-ROM to deliver the "classroom"
lectures. Live chat-room discussions held every two weeks allow
students to pose questions to Dr. Farris.

7. 'Home School Heartbeat': Homeschooling as a Vocation

Do you consider what you do every day as a set of necessary tasks--or
do you look at your roles in your family, church, community, and
workplace as callings from God? Dr. Gene Edward Veith illuminates the
importance of understanding vocation and explains how vocation can
change your perspective on your daily interactions.
