Has anyone used the Schmoop European History course? Trying to cover that with 11th grade dd, and we are floundering a bit from a lack of structure. I'm considering moving to this, but we haven't used any Schmoop courses before. Also, do I need to have both a teacher and a student account, or could I just subscribe to the teacher option and let dd work through that?

 

Thank you!

We used Schmoop for some test prep....my student hated it. Lots of flash, not enough content. I had to consider it a loss (we were going to use it for my other kid but the back of content was troubling). I'd definitely recommend going through any samples.

Thank you! Helpful input. My dd disliked even the brief how-our-courses-work video, so this is not looking like the right choice for us at this point!

We looked at Schmoop, briefly, for AP European History supplementation.  It was so dumbed down, as your kids have already figured out.
