  1. I responded to your pm, jess4879. Thanks! I'm still wondering if anyone can tell me if chapter 11 is a chapter with a test or not. Anyone? Thanks!
  2. Unfortunately, the result was just as I feared. I emailed them and they got back to me rather quickly. But they have no idea as this is a former, not current edition and they do not have access to the old edition. Anyone :confused1:
  3. Thanks! Off to track down an email address for them.
  4. I have a question about the tests. I just bought a used set of tests and the test key. It was described as complete. There is no test or test key for chapter 11. However, in the teacher edition it is stated that there is a test available for this chapter. So, I'm really confused. Does anyone know if I'm missing something or if its a mistake in the teacher edition? I don't want to order another set just to find out its the same. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Especially need sotw 2 and moh 2 and 3 and sotw 3 and moh 3. Thanks!
  6. I've heard of some only counting test scores without grading daily work. I've heard of some who count daily work and grades; some give an extra 10% for the childs attitude, etc... This is our first year of High School (grade 9) and I've just been grading the daily work and the tests as is with a goal of final grade being composed of 60%tests and 40% daily work. Now I'm wondering if what I'm doing is right or if I should be doing something differently. I'm also wondering if its necessary to have quarterly/semester grades for the transcript, or do I only need the year end grade? We go year round 4 days a week with breaks here and there which makes it a bit difficult to break it up into quarters/semesters. So, I'd love to hear how others handle this. Thanks a lot!
  7. My sets are complete.I'm not sure on the right price though. Any ideas?
  8. I have all 4 cycles just sitting there like they need a new home. But is there a market for these?
  9. Thanks, everyone. I don't feel comfortable or knowledgeable enough to try to put something together. I was hoping to find something all put together for us. In my internet search I came across A Beka computer applications. But, I think its now called Document processing, not sure if the two are the same. I suppose that might work, but I don't know anything about it. Anyone have any experiencewith either of those? Thanks!
  10. I just found out that most of the colleges around here are now requiring a 1/2 credit of computer applications. To be honest, I'm not even sure what this is, much less where to start looking. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. :) Thanks!
  11. Thanks. There is a lot to think about here. :001_smile:
  12. I'm having my 9th grader do Writing with Skill, R & S English writing assignments as they come up, and composition suggestions in Abeka Literature as they come up. He thinks it's too much. He says he loves WWS, just not the others. He's never been a great fan of writing. He did complete the Writing Strands series, but I was never able to get him to do the writing assignments for History/Science as outlined in the Logic stage of TWTM, so I'm avoiding it for high school now as well. But, I do want to give him plenty of writing anyway. WWS does include sci/hist topics so that helps. Any advice or opinions would be helpful.
  13. TM's for your edition are easy to find on ebay and amazon for cheap.
  14. This will be our first year homeschooling high school. So thankful to have this forum.
  15. If you had to choose between English from the Roots up or Critical Thinking Co. Word roots, which would you choose? We're going to do both over the next four years, but I can't decide in which order to go. Thanks!
  16. Maybe Jensen's. Format Writing would be a good fit.
