You are most welcome, ladies! The combined wisdom on this Board is awesome when you see it all listed like that, isn't it! :D

And just to clarify about the above list: I included a wide variety of topics on each general subject (not just the same topic repeatedly) -- I separated topics with some space.

And I only included threads with quite a few responses (which gives lots of info from many posters all in one place) -- AND I only included threads I thought would be helpful to many people; I did not include threads that were responses to help only the original poster's specific question/need.

Happy reading! :) Warmest regards, Lori D.

.....ssssiiiigggghhhh of massive exasperation.... Apparently the switch to the new board broke the links. I am in process of relinking. I'm about 25% there. I started at the top of page 1, and will plug away in order down the list till done..... Warmest regards, Lori D.


ETA: Okay, page 1 is RE-DONE, with a few additions, and reorganized into a more coherent structure. Page 2 will just have to wait until I have another block of time...


ETA #2: ::gasp:: Almost killed me, but, all links have been reestablished. I also added a few recent threads, and reorganized into a better order with clearer headings.

please... no... more... Board... format... changes... ::gasp::

Ohmyword, Lori. I didn't mean that YOU should be the one to fix all those links! Holy cow, what a job! I thought there was some magic button a mod could press that would make it all work again or something. Then again, I'm woefully ignorant of all techno-stuff. But THANK YOU for taking the time to fix it all!

.....ssssiiiigggghhhh of massive exasperation.... Apparently the switch to the new board broke the links. I am in process of relinking. I'm about 25% there. I started at the top of page 1, and will plug away in order down the list till done..... Warmest regards, Lori D.


ETA: Okay, page 1 is RE-DONE, with a few additions, and reorganized into a more coherent structure. Page 2 will just have to wait until I have another block of time...


ETA #2: ::gasp:: Almost killed me, but, all links have been reestablished. I also added a few recent threads, and reorganized into a better order with clearer headings.

please... no... more... Board... format... changes... ::gasp::


Lori. A tip of the hat and virtual chocolate or wine to you for the hard work. Thank you so much.

Wow - this list is just amazing!

THANK YOU to all who worked on putting this together.  Now I need to find about 3 hours of extra time to read over everything   ;)

 

I'm thinking our local homeschool group could benefit from this immensely...  can I link to it somehow (with proper disclosures, of course!) and they would be able to read the posts, or is that not allowed?  

(Or maybe it won't even work if they aren't members on here?)

Can anyone answer that for me?

Just send them the link to the thread. Then they can browse the links at will.

Super!   Thanks so much - this list is just insane and there are so many good things on it... I know it will be of benefit.

I wanted to be sure it was okay to share it   :001_smile:

i noticed one of our favorite online teachers isn't listed here yet.

 

sheri jackson teaches specific high school science topics (eg. ocean environment, evolution).

 

her email is [email protected]

 

she also teaches middle school english courses.

 

she was a great introduction to online classes for our dd#3.

 

dd#4 is registered in both science classes for this autumn, and we'd love people we "know" to be there with us ;).

 

best,

ann

 

eta: her website is http://sherrisonline...ses.weebly.com/

Hi all! This is my last year to homeschool! Wow! So thankful to WTM and all the resources through the years! The past seven years I have taught English comp/lit at a co-op..classes grew from 24 students to over 100 the past two years.

The last four years I compiled lessons for 30-32 week schedules. All are free on my website www.wordlyways.com

This year, I was asked to do online classes since my husband's company moved us to Houston 3 weeks ago. I am holding Skype classes for 7th-10th and 10th-12th starting Monday in World Literature. You can review this year's course at my website.

I charge $100 per semester and grade assignments..anyone can try it out first before committing. It is heavier on reading the first semester (Les Miserables unabridged but we will skip sections in the senior class) but less in the second semester.

You can contact me via website :)
Kind regards
