KONOS is a Bible-based unit study that combines character training with academics, using a hands-on approach that inspires kids to love learning.
The program is meant to be used by students of a variety of ages, and integrates the study of literature, history, Bible, arts, crafts, music, writing, drama, geography, social studies, health, critical thinking and practical living skills. Parents will need to add their own math, spelling and grammar program.
The original guides are sold in three volumes. Each volume has 30 interchangeable units that are typically used over a time period of 2-3 years. History is not necessarily presented chronologically, so parents may want to purchase a timeline offered by the company that provides children with a visual as to when events took place in relation to other historical events.
The Original KONOS is for parents who enjoy creating their own lessons and gathering their own materials. KONOS-in-a-Box is for the busy parent that prefers to have all the legwork done for them. It provides a curriculum guide with daily lessons, craft materials, and resource books, as well as a complete writing and reading analysis program. These deluxe kits come in a suitcase-style box. They are designed to last one semester but can easily be adapted to take up to a year for younger students.
KONOS-in-a-Bag is another option for busy parents. It includes 18 weeks of curriculum for studying one country or culture, daily lessons plans and activities, a map, a resource book, and a craft kit - ideal for one semester.
The company also offers History of the World for high school students, as well as a mentoring program that provides weekly 'how-to' lessons teaching parents how to use the curriculum with their children.
This is an ideal unit study for co-op settings or for the large family that is looking for something they can use to learn together.
