Donning rubber gloves and using stainless steel instruments, Rebecca Horton, left, and Melissa Jenks disect an earthworm and take notes as they learn body parts and terminology. Both attended Tuesday's Jefferson City Home Educators Co-op classes.

The classrooms at Memorial Baptist Church are filled on Tuesday afternoons this fall.

"Science You Can Eat," "What's Up With Them: Personality Types and Psychology," and "Drive-thru History: Character Series" are a glimpse of the course topics offered at the Jefferson City Home Educators Cooperative.

The philosophy of the program has remained the same. As home-school families, some topics are difficult to cover as individuals, said coordinator Stephanie Smith.
