Idaho Families - Learn How You Can Access Individualized and Flexible Home-based Educational Programs for Free
The Harmony Core MAP Program
Available at select locations.
MAP is a core program available for students in grades 1-8. Students meet one day a week to learn key concepts in core curriculum for Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. MAP is designed to help students meet the school’s Power Learning Goals objectives. MAP teachers collect student work and submit it for the student’s PLG portfolio.
MAP is a 28-week program that meets on Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. MAP coursework is based on Idaho Standards and the school’s Power Learning Goals.
During the rest of the week, students continue to work on their core coursework at home. To build a program at home, parents may continue using a program of their choice or use the resources provided in the MAP class. Sample home schedules, along with online subscriptions and various books and curriculum, will be available.
MAP uses exceptional curriculum resources, such as Excellence in Writing, Four Square Writing Method, Easy Grammar, English from the Roots Up, Words Their Way, Literature Circles and leveled books, various math materials, Story of the World, A History of Us, and Interactive Science Notebooks, as well as other exciting resources.
Students may occasionally have a required project or assignment to work on at home. Each family will develop their own at home plan with the MAP coordinator.
MAP does not include electives. Students may enroll in another elective course, including Options Day.
