Group Description

Homeschooling "Heart of Dakota" Moms is a (non-denominational) support group for families that are interested in or use Heart of Dakota curriculum for homeschooling. HOD is a Christian curriculum that incorporates Charlotte Mason's philosophy of "living books" and "her personal belief that knowledge of God and His Word is foundational to all learning." HOD also incorporates unit study and some quality texts while keeping it economical and Christ-centered.

The curriculum was written by Carrie Austin after 11 years of teaching in the public school system and has been implemented in Mike and Carrie Austin's own homeschooling family. It has been enjoyed by their four boys. HOD is not a one-size-fits all curriculum, but rather allows flexibility to individualize it to your child(ren)'s needs, yet the teacher's manual is organized and requires little preparation and planning. Carrie Austin doesn't reinvent the wheel with her curriculum but instead utilizes some of the best resources available, and still allows each family to choose what works for them. It is Bible-based but also includes those classics (not to be confused with 'classical education') that you do not want your children to miss out on. Christian education incorporates your faith and character-building into every aspect of learning, but should also offer a well-rounded foundation of history, literature, mathematics and much more. HOD helps establish that love for learning that will take your children onto many new horizons throughout their lifetime.
