This is the Support Forum for homeschooling users of Michael Clay Thompson Language Arts Curriculum, and other materials published by Royal Fireworks Press.In the Files section you will find answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the Curriculum, as well a number of articles by Michael Clay Thompson.
We ask that all list members keep the topic as close as possible to the topic of Language Arts.Do tell us something about yourself in the thread "Introduce Yourself" which is below the Sub-Forums after you have clicked on the MCTLA for Homeschoolers.
Other subjects such as social studies and science are also appropriate as they are related.
This list is monitored by Royal Fireworks Press staff and the author, himself.
"In my books I build in thinking taxonomies and whole brain approaches, and I try to communicate an enthusiasm about learning that makes over-excitability seem normal and right, which it is."--Michael Clay Thompson.
