Creek Edge Press Home of the Task Card Approach
We publish materials with roots along the Classical-Charlotte Mason-Montessori continuum, specializing in materials that promote engaged learning in the home-school and Montessori classroom.
The Task Card Series covers grammar and dialectic stage science, history, geography, culture, music, art, and grammar. These sets direct students toward the use of trusted tools of learning within a prepared learning environment. They are easily customizable and provide a pace and structure that balances self-direction with attention to detail.
Each volume of the Recitation and Enrichment Series covers recitation and enrichment objectives for all grades in an open-and-go, week-plan format. These volumes facilitate relational learning in home and school settings. They correspond to the Task Card Series and include cumulative recitations in history, Latin, math, and science. An innovative tiered approach is applied to copywork and dictation exercises. Enrichment plans are based on the work of Charlotte Mason and include vocabulary, nature study, habit training, music, art, and material to be read aloud.
*The High School History and Literature Series is designed for rhetoric level students and is comprised of four volumes: Ancient World, Medieval World, Early Modern World, and Modern World. Each volume covers 36 weeks of assignments which direct students toward research objectives in history and literature. These comprehensive volumes rely on student directed inquiry with a focus on factual facility, exposure to increasingly adult narratives,broad historical themes, interaction with vocabulary, and the development of analytical skills. Dynamic interaction and varying focal points provide meaningful experiences with course material. *Volume 1 is available for purchase now. Volumes 2-4 will be available soon.
