TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching in a homeschool co-op for about 25 years. I've developed lots of curricula for chemistry, biology, earth sciences, anatomy, geography, and art. I have a BFA in fine art, which shapes everything I do: line drawings and cartoons illustrate my books, and there are many art projects included in the learning activities. Additionally, at my own website www.ellenjmchenry.com I offer video courses that use drawing to study world geography and anatomy. I invent a lot of games and puzzles which I hope to share with the TPT community.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Activity-based classroom, learning through art I often present material to middle school (and even younger) students that would be considered high school or even university level topics. With good explanations and interactive games and projects, students can learn far more than we think. They enjoy it more when they learn it at younger ages, too.
