About the event

Families for the World, a twenty-year-old ministry created by the Cantrall Family, is starting a home school co-op centering around world missions and the Great Commission.  Through studying various missionaries and the countries they served, we hope to instill a passion for the lost and create a desire to reach them no matter what the cost.  Co-op classes will be held on Tuesdays from 9 to 3:30 and will include the following spring 2023 classes. . . 

* Cultural Geography taught by veteran home-school dad Darren Cantrall.  Darren has a bachelor's degree in secondary history education and has been on numerous mission trips to India, Burma, and Thailand.  Using the YWAM Christian Heroes Then and Now biographies, Darren will delve into the history, culture, and geography of India, Burma, and China.  Gleening from the examples of various missionaries and his own passion for the lost of Asia, Darren will lead in-depth discussions that will leave students challenged and inspired.  Interactive activities will be emphasized so that students of all learning styles will remain interested and engaged.  Older students will be provided with more challenging biographies if desired.

.* Interactive Storytelling taught by Lizzie Cantrall.  Lizzie has been a serious writer for over ten years-- receiving raving reviews from her professors who have encouraged post-graduate work and ultimately publication.  She is also an accomplished scriptwriter with experience in directing and performing her own plays.  In this class Lizzie will guide her students in building characters and plots, creating tension, writing dialogue, and learning how to write scripts as a team.  At the end of the semester, students will have written a complete play containing the information learned throughout the semester.   They will perform their play at an end-of-the-year gathering.

* Cultural Art taught by Haddie Cantrall,  art major at the UWM Pecks school of arts.  Haddie has experience in teaching a variety of art forms to a wide array of students.  In this class, students will develop a keen knowledge of ceramics, multi-media painting, graffiti art, Chinese water color,  and jewelry making.  They will also develop a critical knowledge of the art practices of Asain culture.  Students will have the opportunity to display their artwork at the end-of-the-year gathering.

* Literature taught by Anna Cantrall,  book lover extraordinaire and Journalism major.  Anna owns more books than the Kewaskum library, has read them all at least twice, and remembers every minute detail of each of them.  In this class, Anna will delve into the rich world of various Asian authors.   Books will be read together during class, followed by lively discussions, and ultimately the viewing of classic film renditions of each book.    Simpler books will be used for younger students.

The Families for the World Co-op is geared toward students ages 10 through 18.  Parents are not required to attend or participate, but they are welcome to observe if they desire.  No child-care is provided, and packed lunches are required.  An additional fee will be charged for all needed art supplies.
