Planning with Laura's Parent Classes

Laura offers a series of pre-recorded parent classes on the different stages of formation. These classes provide an excellent overview of the MODG methodology and can be a great way to begin planning for the new school year. Laura's curriculum classes provide valuable information about methodology and course content at each grade level. These classes are free for enrolled families.
