Home Economics II

The three LightUnits in this course give step-by-step directions on how to prepare a conservative Mennonite-style cape dress pattern, sew a cape dress, and construct a three-piece, cap-style Mennonite woman's veiling.

The materials include guidelines on modest dress for Christian women, how to choose and alter a pattern, Biblical directives on the women's veiling, care of the veiling, three cap-style veiling patterns, a hanging veil pattern, and tips on care of the veiling.

The three LightUnits together make up three-tenths of a high school credit. (Grade 10 and up)

Spanish I

This course presents the content usually taught in a first-year high school Spanish course.

Students study the Spanish language first by listening and repeating, then by reading and writing. They will also study the basic rules and principles of the Spanish language. As they increase in their ability to understand the spoken language and converse in Spanish, students will also learn to sight-read Spanish communications from the LightUnits, write Spanish sentences, and develop an awareness of the cultures of Spanish-speaking people.

The tapes are not designed to be used without the LightUnits. Both the LightUnits and the tapes are essential for this course.



Sunrise Computer Basics

This course gives students a foundation for learning computer applications. A computer is not needed for the course, though having one available would be very beneficial to the student.

LightUnits 1 and 2 provide a basic history of computers and describe how computers work. LightUnits 3 and 4 deal with computer software including word processing, databases, spreadsheets, desktop publishing, and more. LightUnit 5 deals with computers in the workplace and choosing a suitable computer and compatible software.
