Torchlight Level 1: Myth and Magic



Product Description


Torchlight’s Level 1 curriculum for learners ages 6-9 is entitled Myth & Magic. In Level 1, a large focus of our literature studies is reading analysis through Socratic-inspired discussion. Myth & Magic uses the art of story with historical fiction and non-fiction to focus on history and culture, exploring social norms, both Ancient and modern, to build understanding, empathy, and character.


Torchlight Level 1 will take us around the ancient world from early people to the Fall of Rome, and we will listen to the ancient and cultural myths that were told around a crackling fire between families of old and some still today. Myths tell us about what a culture of people held in the highest esteem, the challenges they once faced, and the questions they sought to answer.
