  8. We're using Mr. Q and like it a lot. I am not a science teacher, so I can't compare it with other chem courses, but it has been easy to teach, and dd enjoys it. We do chemistry three school days and the kitchen labs on Saturday. Mr. Q has been a good fit for us, and it isn't expensive. No special lab materials needed.
  9. Lisa, Thank you, thank you for starting this thread! We will begin this in two weeks after the next ACT test and prep cycle. We're still putting some things in place for the school year, but we have to get going with the app process and still a few visits. Yikes! 1togo
  10. I guess my point is that there really aren't lots and lots of forms. Learn the basic essay and use it for different topics, subjects, etc.Then, work on improving those essays LToW I does this. Lesson 1 - very, very basic essay. Lesson 2 - add a technique. Lesson 3 - add another technique. The final, persuasive essay is a complete, persuasive essay with every point generated from the student's thinking. Using invention worksheets may seem tedious, but the goal is internalizing the tools of invention to use in other essays and arrangements. Bravewrite EE also teaches the persuasive ess
  11. I am just going to throw this out for you to think about. If your son got everything from Lively Art, then he is ready for more advanced topics/concepts. I have Lively Art..., and it does an excellent job of teaching essays. Although I love Bravewriter Expository Essays, your son has learned the same material in Lively Art. Lively Art..., Bravewiter EE, and even LToW I, although in a slightly different and more structured format, all teach the 5-paragraph/basic essay. Have you looked at SWB's suggestions for writing at your son's level? "The high school student will be writing continually abou
  12. Just curious. If your son mastered essay writing with Lively Art.., why not have him write essays this year on topics from his studies? Lots and lots of short essays where he practices and expands on what he already learned For example, our dd took Bravewriter Expository Essay class at the beginning of the summer, and she is going spend this year practicing that form, which includes most of the skills she needs for college writing, until she achieves fluency.
  13. Encouraging your son to understand that the ANI process is something he can use for any issue in his life might help. Also, keeping the focus on thinking; i.e. why something can be both positive and negative when considering an issue, etc.
  14. Regarding 5 Topics and ANI. You begin with the 5 Topics to get some ideas on the ANI. Then, you use other invention tools to add to the ANI. Eventually, you have ANI columns full of ideas that are grouped and sorted to be used for an outline and essay. The process teaches generating ideas as well as ordering and prioritizing those ideas.
  15. P.S. The ANI chart is the basis for thinking through both sides of an issue. It is as much about critical thinking as writing. The ANI chart and the other invention tools generate original thinking not just a rehash of a teacher's thoughts or the typical essay consisting of quotes or paraphrases from someone else with a bit of interp. Just curious. What else have you used that helped to generate original thought for writing?
