Ideas for Your Next Co-op Class

Last week, I wrote about a couple of the unexpected benefits of being part of a homeschool cooperative (co-op). It’s obvious that co-op must be on my mind, because I decided that I wanted to touch on co-ops in my post again this week.

This is the time of year that many co-ops are starting to piece together who will be teaching next school year and what they are planning to teach. Sometimes, I think that there are people who are willing to teach some fabulous classes — they just can’t think of what that fabulous class will be.

In searching through the Internet, I found not only some great co-op class ideas, but also some links to share (including one that has a twenty page document of class ideas and descriptions!).

A small smattering of co-op class ideas:
