At Harvest, our goal is to holistically incorporate memory work into each Grammar-level class. We believe that memory work should be presented in context so that the information can be better stored and recalled. We will utilize integrated memory work in a number of subjects including Scripture, Hymns, Poetry, Art, Music, Math, Science, Latin, English Grammar, and Geography.
At the end of the year, students will have the option of participating in the Harvest Honors program, which allows students to demonstrate their mastery of the memory work by reciting it to one of their teachers. In this program, we desire to cultivate a capstone that not only maintains a standard of excellence, but also embraces the restful learning approach of scholé and is achievable by all students.
We believe that all accomplishments should be celebrated, and, as such, have provided three levels: cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum laude. Point values will be assigned to each piece of the memory work and students will be allowed to choose which memory work to recite to achieve the award level they aim to acquire. We will also confer a Sola Scriptura award, which will be awarded for mastery of all of the Scripture memory work for the year.
