Homeschool Friday

The SCCRRMM’s “Homeschool Fridays” are a FREE program offered on the second Friday of each month during the academic year. Sessions are at 10:00AM and 11:00AM (the same lesson is taught, both hours). The programs are geared toward students of all ages, and include lectures and activities.

Please note: from September through January, we are offering an additional lecture, a biographical sketch of a military hero (or, in one case, villain), focusing on character qualities. The biography lectures will be held on third Fridays, at 11:00 only.

Session Schedule:

The Chieftain: Life and Legacy of Wade Hampton III
Date: 01/15/2021

Wade Hampton III, Confederate cavalry general, went on to become one of the state’s most pivotal governors.  His equestrian statue dominates the state house grounds.  Why, though, does he also have a chapter devoted to him in a book about bear hunting? We’ll examine Wade’s life experiences, his accomplishments and his character.

Tigers Over China
Date: 04/09/2021

It’s a terrific World War Two adventure story – American fighter pilots secretly travelling overseas long before Pearl Harbor, to help defend China from the Japanese invasion.  The “Flying Tigers” were legends in their own time; in our time, their stories have much to teach us!
