Fabiola - a Tale of the Catacombs

A legendary book that I was overjoyed to find in an Op Shop way back in 2001 (before kids). Something about pre-natal check-ups and waiting rooms meant that I read a lot of books that year.

Anki Catechism

Some years ago I had a go at using Anki to help learn the Baltimore Catechism. It probably helped a bit, but one of those things that dropped by the wayside.

Chemistry Videos

Chemistry lectures - no - open day Chemistry lectures were a memorable highlight of my time at University. One thing you miss with homeschooling is easy access to test tubes, magnesium ribbon and hydrochloric acid.

A Term on Medieval History

Last term we read through Charlotte Yonge’s History of Rome which leads up to my favourite topic - Medieval Europe. Now, because of the Protestant Revolution, it is nigh impossible to find a public domain text of this period from a Catholic perspective, but here is the plan.

Moodle For Home

Moodle is a Learning Management System - the big open source megalith of the Learning Management landscape. One drawback is that it needs more resources than can comfortably be supplied by your average cheap shared web hosting.

Matching up Psalms

When we sing the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Latin I often wonder how much my children understand. So, today I cut and paste Psalm 84 into two columns, printed out four copies, cut them up and asked my students to put them back together.
