Around the World Stories: discount codes, today only!

Are you looking for a way to inspire your kids to learn about the world? Around the World Stories creates original audio stories for kids that make learning about other cultures an unforgettable adventure.

You can get 20% off the  6-story Artists set, TODAY ONLY (11-30) when you use coupon code “ARTISTSATHOME”, and/or a FREE month to try out their Europe stories monthly subscription when you use coupon code “EUROPEMONTH”.

We just purchased the Artists story set and my kids are realy excited about incorporating a new element into our artist study this year. Of special interest: the Georgia O’Keeffe story, as we are studying O’Keeffe in our Classical Conversations co-op this year.

Here’s more info on Around the World Stories:

Each week subscribers receive a 30-minute story told from the perspective of a child in another country, so young listeners learn how kids in other cultures live, play, learn, eat and celebrate.

Your kids will catch a cotton-tailed tulip thief and meet the king of the Netherlands. They’ll celebrate New Year’s Eve in Madrid and find a treasure map in Greece. They’ll race a Leprechaun in Ireland and help solve the case of Mozart’s missing violin in Austria.

The stories are written for kids ages 5 to 12 and each includes a story guide with discussion points, recipes and activity ideas.

Europe Stories

Subscribers receive a new audio story each week in their inbox along with activity ideas, background, discussion topics and recipes related to the story and the country. Four stories are dedicated to each country.

Artists Around the World Stories

Also available is a fun 6-story set about important painters and artistic styles throughout history. Through this exciting series, listeners can travel back in time to meet Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Michelangelo, O’Keeffe and Kandinsky.

To follow their travels and stories, you can visit their Facebook page or Instagram or website at Around the World Stories.

Get ticket deals NOW for “A Christmas Carol” at the Clarence Brown Theatre!

Last year my two daughters had the amazing experience of performing in “A Christmas Carol” at the Clarence Brown Theatre. They learned so much from the experience, and of course I wanted to see them perform as many times as possible. I sought out all the best ticket deals I could find so I could share with friends and family. Although it is a wonderful thing to be able to support live theater through the purchase of full-price tickets – and I greatly admire those patrons who do! – sometimes your budget will only allow you to experience theater if you can find a really great deal.  Part of the Clarence Brown’s mission is to educate the local community about theater, and they offer some great ways to allow families to experience shows even when budgets are tight. Here are some of my favorite deals at the CBT.


The Clarence Brown Theatre (CBT) offers a special evening called “Family Feast”, where each ticket is $10 and includes dinner before the show! The stated purpose of this evening is “to promote the fading practice of family dinners and to celebrate community through theatre,” and you must make reservations as a family or group – however you define family! There are two Family Feasts each year, one for their spring show and one for A Christmas Carol. This year the Family Feast night for Christmas Carol is Wednesday, December 6. You have to call the Clarence Brown box office directly to get tickets. (865) 974-5161. They’re only open from noon to 5 weekdays. You can’t get this deal online, and it sells out very quickly! For more info about Family Feast, go here.


The CBT also participates in the Penny for the Arts program – absolutely one of my FAVORITE deals. When you buy one discounted adult ticket ($22 or so) you can get up to 3 kids’ tickets for a penny. (Additional tickets for your group will be regular price.) Yet again, you have to call the Clarence Brown box office directly to get these tickets, and make sure you ask for Penny for the Arts tickets. You can only get the Penny for the Arts deal for the following weeknight shows: Nov 29-Dec. 1, and Dec. 5-8.

 

For more on Penny for the Arts, go here.

The CBT offers a “Pay What You Wish Preview Wednesday” for most of its shows. Tickets may be purchased in person from 4:00pm until curtain the day of the below performances at the CBT Box Office kiosk in the lobby. Cash only, in full dollar amounts accepted and tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. Limited to 8 tickets per purchase.

In my experience, the Christmas Carol “Pay What You Wish” night sells out very quickly, mostly from University of Tennessee students who see the show for free on the same night with their student IDs (which is also a great deal!) I would go ahead and have tickets in hand from one of the other above deals. But, since it’s a great deal, I’m including it on this list. Here are this season’s Pay What You Wish dates:

And here’s where you can go for more info on Pay What You Wish Wednesday preview nights.

 

Finally, a REALLY great way to see free shows is by working as an usher! When you commit to usher before and after a show (and during intermission) you can see the show from a special usher’s seat for free! Go here to sign up for ushering spots.

Penny for the Arts: see Peter & The Starcatcher for $0.01/child at the Clarence Brown Theatre!

There are some amazing deals coming up for performances at the Clarence Brown Theatre! I highly recommend the Penny4Arts performances. For my family, one adult and two children attended the last show at the Clarence Brown Theatre for just $14 total! Here are details:

Peter and the Starcatcher

In this multiple Tony Award-winning play with music, a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable roles take to the high seas to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? This magical evening of madcap fun is suitable for younger audiences but most enjoyable for ages 10 and up.

Tickets available for September 5-8 (entire show run is August 30 – September 17) at Clarence Brown Theatre Mainstage. Seats for Penny4Arts are available on a first come, first served basis and are subject to availability.

Open to students outside of Knox County? YES
Advance reservations required? YES – call the box office Monday-Friday from 12-5 PM

Review and HUGE sale on history curriculum: Dave Raymond’s Modernity DVD set

I recently had the chance to review Dave Raymond’s Modernity, the newest history series available from Compass Classroom. This series is available on DVD, via Streaming, or by download. Modernity usually retails for $120, but through August 9 you can purchase it for 50% off – just $60! You can find info on the sale on Compass Classroom’s website here.

About this history series (from the creators):

In this exciting addition to his history series, Dave Raymond turns his attention to the period of Modernity and the maturity of Western civilization (covering world history from 1500 – present). Under Dave’s instruction, students will learn how to apply and refine a Christian worldview to major developments in philosophy, science, and government; personalities such as Newton, Bach, Napoleon, and Austen; and movements including the Enlightenment, Darwinism, Nationalism, and Victorianism.

Modernity is a one-year class that consists of:

  • 27 lessons (5 videos per lesson, 47 total hours)
  • 4 projects
  • Student Reader, 400p (PDF, EPUB and MOBI)
  • Teacher’s Guide with Scope & Sequence (PDF, ePub and mobi)
  • Weekly Exams
  • Year-long Portfolio

You can find a complete breakdown of hours spent per area to qualify for high school credit on the website.

Dave Raymond lives in rural Middle Tennessee with his wife and 6 children where he has taught the humanities for the past 12 years. He teaches the disciplines of history, literature, composition, and Latin through Quiller Tutorials and Foundations Christian Academy.

Contents:
  • Formats: DVD, Download, Streaming
  • Lessons: 27 (47 hours of material)
  • Additional Materials: Student Reader, Teacher’s Guide (PDF, EPUB, MOBI)
  • Credit: 1 HS
  • Age: 14+
  • Teacher: Dave Raymond

My Verdict:

My husband is a history guy, and I knew he would love going through this series with me. He is teaching a class for 7th & 8th graders as part of our homeschool co-op this year, and there are a number of areas that he will be able to incorporate into his lectures. We homeschool our rising 3rd & 5th graders, and look forward to using this series as part of their curriculum in the future. It is targeted at students ages 14 & up, but I think it would also be good for really advanced 7th/8th graders. Dave Raymond is a really engaging teacher, and the combination of his lecture style with the visual elements that the DVD/streaming mode allows makes Modernity way more interesting than any history class I remember sitting through. It’s such a great way for parents to provide a modern history education for their high school student while possibly re-learning many things themselves. Also, much of history, especially modern history, is often taught from an anti-Christian worldview. It’s nice to be able to approach these events from a specifically Christian perspective.

The lessons included are:

Part I

  1. Orientation
  2. The Great Stage: Introduction to the West
  3. Ideas Have Consequences: The Enlightenment
  4. The Sacred and the Secular: Empires, Missions, Pirates, and Rulers
  5. Royal Science: The Scientific Revolution
  6. The Creators: Pascal, Vermeer, Johnson, Bach
  7. The Devil Has No Stories: The French Revolution,
  8. I Am the Revolution: Napoleon
  9. Deus Ex Machina: The Industrial Revolution
  10. The Antiquary and the Muses: Scott, Austen, and the Romantic Poets
  11. No Vision Too Large: Wilberforce and Chalmers
  12. Culture=State: Nationalism
  13. Eminent Culture: Victorianism

Part II

  1. The West and the Rest: Victorian Missions
  2. The New Priesthood: Scientism and Darwinism
  3. The Square Inch War: Kuyper and Wilson
  4. The Pity of War: World War I
  5. Domesticity Versus Tyranny: Versailles, Dictators, and America’s Roaring Twenties
  6. Modern Art and the Death of Culture: Art and Architecture
  7. I’ll Take My Stand: The Thirties
  8. The Lost Generation: Literary Converts
  9. The Wrath of Man: World War II
  10. The Cross and Perseverance: World War II, Bonhoeffer, and Churchill
  11. Personal Peace and Affluence: The Fifties
  12. The Great Divorce: The Sixties
  13. The West Like the Rest: The Seventies and the End of Modernity
  14. The Triumph of the West: The Fall of Communism and Postmodernity

Here’s the trailer:

If you’d like to check out Modernity it is currently on sale for $60 for the regular DVD – half off the regular price of $120!
