  1. You might want to take a look at Roman Road's wonderful Old Western Culture "Christendom" or "Early Moderns". Christendom covers the medieval period and Early Moderns takes off from there and covers British history. They are from a Christian perspective, too.
  2. Has anyone used this course who will review it for me?
  3. My son only went through FF and then moved on to French and has done very well. I think when to stop Latin will depend on your goals, time, and interest. It was becoming a battle in the middle school years and was not something I wanted to continue to fight over with a strong-willed child because he wanted to move on to French. He's in French 2 now and I had plans for him to go through at least French 3, but he isn't interested.
  4. Shormann Math is integrated. Algebra 1 is combined with geometry, as is Algebra 2. When algebra 1 is completed, the student will receive 1 credit in algebra and 1/2 geometry credit. Same in algebra 2. You have a year and a half to do each course, or do the honors option and complete them faster . https://diveintomath.com/shormann/
  5. My boys take classes through Shole Academy and they require the cameras to be on. My son took a class through MP Online Academy last year and the teacher did not require the students to have their cameras, which was not good for my inattentive kid. I heard it varies by teacher with MPOA.
  6. My son is doing American History this year and he really likes it, so I am happy, and he will continue with Modernity next year. He rarely likes anything, so I am going to stick with what works. We are reformed, so the perspective doesn't bother me, of course, but my son has also had teachers with Catholic and secular perspectives, and we just discuss the differences. I don't think it is overly providential because that would be a problem for us as well. There were a few things he said in the beginning of the course I didn't agree with, but over all I've been pleased. I really like t
  7. I have her book, Setting the Record Straight, and found it very helpful. Another good one is The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling Teens by Debra Bell.
  8. Thank you. We are going to have him evaluated for adhd, but might not be able to get an appointment quickly. In the meantime, I need to find something he can succeed in, which seems to be geometry. I had him try CTC today and tomorrow he'll try TT. Maybe if he has a say in this, we'll find the one that clicks because I really don't know what to pick. Math curricula really seems to be hit or miss. It's so frustrating.
  9. What are you using now? He said he dislikes the way the course jumps all over the place, so I think I'm going to put my son in geometry and try algebra 2 again next year. Shormann Algebra 1 wasn't too bad for him. Did your daughter do that?
  10. What do you think the issue is? We have done everything suggested, even starting over. He did very well going back and did better the second time around on the first exam, but is now back to being completely confused and thinks he just can't do math. He is on lesson 33 or 34 and we've just had it with this curriculum.
  11. OP, I read your post this morning and your son sounds very similar to mine from birth to now. We are going to have him evaluated asap.
  12. Oh, no worries. I didn't take it as prying.
