  1. Crosspost Have any of your children taken Online G3 Lightning Literature 7? How did you like it? Any pros and cons? Tips on making the best of this class? In previous threads I learned that there is not much feedback or accountability for this class. That might not be a good fit for my dc. Any other classes where the literature discussions are vibrant, there is some writing, and a little more accountability?? Would greatly appreciate your input on this. Thank you 🙂

  3. I feel for you two. It happened to one of my dc. All tests taken at the same location but for no rhyme or reason one of the AP scores was missing. My dc immediately contacted the CB and did so regularly. 4-6 weeks after the release date, the results finally arrived. I hope your experience is better and faster than ours. I’ve heard in some instances it is.
  4. Memoria Press Online also has a good one https://www.memoriapressacademy.com/catalog?pagename=economics
  5. This is great https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Guide-Math-Richard-Corn/dp/0998584916/ref=dp_ob_title_bk If you want to over prepare for ACT math, do SAT 2 Math 2 prep: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1523381531/ref=dbs_a_def_awm_hsch_vapi_taft_p1_i0 This is a good list of ACT books by subject https://blog.prepscholar.com/best-act-prep-books
  6. I haven’t checked all the links above, but in case this is not listed the following science videos are very good and trusted by many in this forum: Corresponding test he discusses: http://www.allpencilsdown.com/preparing-61C.pdf While the ACT science has changed a little, the video series above is still relevant. Pair it with reading scientific journals and https://www.amazon.com/Love-ACT-Science-innovative-standardized/dp/0996832203/ref=sr_1_2?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInNG1sqHX4gIVD9tkCh1bCQH3EAAYASAAEgI4IvD_BwE&hvadid=241929030173&hvdev=t&hvlocphy=9052003&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=10773912269542378554&hvtargid=kwd-218253899608&hydadcr=22567_10346631&keywords=for+the+love+of+act+science&qid=1559906730&s=gateway&sr=8-2.
  7. Speaking of calculators and standardized tests, the daughter of a friend (in another school district) was asked to clear her SAT approved calculator before going into the SAT Math 2 test. I checked the SAT 2 calculator policy and didn’t find anything about having to clear the calculator https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat-subject-tests/taking-the-test/calculator-policy. Anyone has heard of this? Also for AP tests my dc couldn’t even take a sound free timer that was allowed in years past. This change bothered me because often the clocks in the test rooms are not functioning. Some other districts in our area project timers on the smart board, ours mainly relies on the teachers giving the 5 or so minutes warning. My dc was allowed to bring a basic digital clock with no alarm for a later AP test in which timing was of essence. Thoughts? Should my dc bring a printout of the calculator and timer policy in case there is ever an issue in our district?

    In our local group everyone loves typing.com, as recommended above 🙂
  9. Thanks a lot for sharing. I have a child who’d enjoy taking this class 🙂.
  10. We have enjoyed Angela Harris (Outschool)’s classes, both live classes and flex schedule. At first, I was curious how the flex schedule would work with my child, but fortunately it worked out quite well. I think having participated in the live classes before also helped set the expectations. Angela’s teaching and insightful feedback have helped my tween’s writing skills blossom. As they approach the teen years, my kids seem to process external teachers’ writing feedback more constructively than mine. Thus, I begin to outsource at this point (with this child in particular, I hadn’t had the opportunity to do much formal writing instruction, so I’m grateful for the progress with Angela). She mentioned her summer schedule will be posted soon, we can’t wait. She is a former Bravewriter instructor and as such was held in high esteem in this forum (which is how I first learned about her). Her Outschool is at: https://outschool.com/teachers/Angela-Harris#us1WkQx8yR I am also intrigued about Schole Academy’s Writing and Rhetoric online classes. I have one of the books and they’re amazing. https://www.scholeacademy.com/by-subject/writing/ I’ve also heard good reviews on: http://www.onlinescribblers.com/ourmission.html, https://bravewriter.com/ Hope this helps 🙂.
  11. Would the Norton Sampler 8th edition suffice or is the 9th edition significantly better? Appreciate your feedback Thanks 🙂
  12. Arcadia: by the way what is your kids’ favorite test site? I bet is a good one for me to check 😀. Thanks a lot.
  13. @Arcadia thanks so much. You always keep us all informed. Your kind help is always appreciated.
  14. Wanted to let you all know of an Outschool class I found that starts on April 15 "No Fear" Nonfiction (The Mini-Report). It’s flex schedule and taught by Angela Harris, former Bravewriter teacher and well regarded in this forum. My child just finished taking a class with Mrs. Harris and learned so much. dc is looking forward to starting this one 🙂 https://outschool.com/classes/no-fear-nonfiction-flex-Ar1b2wVM#us1WkQx8yR
