So I thought this was something that I didn't really care about and wasn't going to spend time quibbling over. My boys have taken some great classes from some great instructors. They've been happy with them; I've been happy with them. Who cares what they're called.
After visiting colleges, though, and hearing about how admissions weights grades and having an admissions counselor tell me to be sure to make it clear on the transcript whether any courses were honors or dual-enrolled or AP or college level, I guess I have to care.
Some courses are listed by providers as being "honors" courses, even some that I wouldn't really consider honors, but, ok, I'll take it.
What about other courses that aren't designated as "honors" by the provider, but which definitely seem to fall into that category? I'm thinking particularly about Lukeion's Latin 3 & 4 and Greek 1-4. I can't find anything in Lukeion's descriptions labeling those courses as "honors" courses, but those are pretty hard-core classes and the texts (Wheelock's, Athenaze, and the reading texts) are supposed to be also used in college courses.
For those who've BTDT, did you designate as "Honors" only those courses which the provider designated as honors?
