Classical Copywork

Classical Copywork Logo

Have you heard about copywork, but want to know more about exactly what it is and why you should include it in your homeschool day? Copywork is reproducing words, sentences, and paragraphs for the sake of improving handwriting, grammar, spelling, and more. The beauty of copywork is that the practice is short and sweet, yet incredibly effective. While your child could theoretically copy anything, another benefit of copywork is being able to put before him material that will encourage, inspire, and challenge him.

Tom Woods Liberty Classroom

(Non-Marxist, non-politically correct, Libertarian point of view)

Most of us learned politically correct U.S. history in school. It’s never too late to learn the truth.

At Liberty Classroom, you can learn real U.S. history, Western civilization, and free-market economics from professors you can trust.

Short on time? No problem. You can learn in your car.

Got questions about what you’re learning? Get them answered in our discussion forums.

Plus monthly live sessions, recommended readings, optional quizzes, and, coming soon, even more courses.

Lectures range from 30 to 55 minutes. Each one is available as an mp3 audio file you can download to your iPod or iPad, or burn onto CDs. Listen and get your libertarian education while you mow the lawn, do household chores, or drive to work. Liberty Classroom can turned wasted or idle time into a fun,entertaining, and valuable learning experience you will treasure for life!

Every single audio lecture is available as a video as well, so you can watch the professors deliver their talks on your screen, usually with PowerPoints and other visuals. You get access to both the audio and video versions of every course.

In addition to the dozens of audio and video lectures, Liberty Classroom also provides recommended reading lists that take the guesswork out of your reading choices when you want to explore topics more in depth.

Or what if you’re cornered and don’t know how to answer a socialist argument you’ve never heard before? Then ask our faculty for the answer directly – either in our Q&A forums, available at all times, or in one of our monthly live sessions, in which our faculty appear on your screen and take your question in real time.

Plus, your membership privileges are not restricted to you alone. Liberty Classroom can give your children a head start in understanding the principles and politics of freedom and free enterprise – and teach them things they won’t learn in high school or college.

Internet & Movies


My family uses VidAngel and we love it. We can now watch nearly everything we want without the cussing, sex, gore, and all the other activities Hollywood keeps trying to shove into our home. Watching 13 Hours, American Sniper, and other good American movies is easy to do just by setting up the filters. No kidding, watching those movies without one single cuss word. Just Amazing.Isaac Moffett
