  1. @SanDiegoMom in VA I just started watching the Big History of Civilizations yesterday and have been really enjoying them. We are getting ready to start BHP next week and are really looking forward to it. I'm also thinking of adding in SWB History of the Ancient World, et al. on audio. Anyone else adding in more world history? Does BHoC cover much of that same info? We are hoping to also get in an year of Western Civ with this as well.
  2. I wish GC had a government series. I agree with aaghomeschool, Crash Course. My boys find these much more tolerable than GC lectures.
  3. I was here for the Tohoku earthquake and am originally from CA. I figure if I had to go through a "big one" I'm glad it was here and not in So Cal. I couldn't even imagine the chaos that would take place compared to the calm and orderliness I saw of the Japanese. I would say it's a good idea to be prepared either way though. It shakes A LOT here.
  4. Anyone have insight on these? I found a few at our library. Otherwise, I've been using REA too. http://www.passyourclass.com
  5. I live in Japan and am freaked out about visiting the US this summer, let alone the idea of having to send DS there to college in a couple years. I love it here, and yeah nothing has changed regarding anything. ETA: yes, the bigger threat is natural disaster as we remember the Tohoku earthquake today. It's been six years.
  6. This is fantastic! Thank you for the input. I really like the Experiencing America idea.
  7. I went to Sonoma State and it's a great school. Small cal state. The campus is gorgeous and the "dorms" rated some of the best--they're townhomes. There's been so much construction since I graduated I didn't recognize some areas.
  8. Not sure about online, but in college I took a 20th century world history class. Is that what she's looking for? Sounds like a great idea.
  9. We are road tripping across the US this summer hitting as many parks as we can. If I want to give my son high school credit for a course, how much should we be doing? Anything to add? We'll do the Geology of the National Parks GC lectures and I just ordered a Geology text. His math skills are lacking so he's not really had a physical science, and I was thinking this might be a better alternative to chemistry. (He's slowing making his way through Fred Chemustry.)
  10. My mom used to use this in her geometry classes ages ago.
  11. I purchased an older edition of Prego, an Italian text book, and managed to find some of the accompanying materials too. Another one is Ciao!
  12. We are road trippers and my teens are really looking forward to one next summer. We didn't find much to stop for in Texas, but in New Mexico, White Sands, Carlsbad, and Roswell were fun. Those are Southern New Mexico though, so you'd have to go north to get to the Petrified Forest and Grand Canyon. In LA, I'll second the La Brea Tar Pits--my boys like to go there whenever we're back.
  13. Celebrated as a federal holiday. It also coincides with Japanese Sports Day which really catches the Americans off guard thinking they've chosen a good Monday to go do something fun.
