  2. Has anyone made tests to go with The History of the Ancient World? I am using the Study and Teaching Guide and I know they say that you may use any of those sections as quizzes or tests. I am looking for more cumulative tests like a quarter, mid-term, or final. Thank you! Blessings, Cheryl
  3. Hi, all. It has been a long time since I have been on this board, but I hope you will still help me :001_smile: . I am using The History of the Ancient World to teach my son and one other young man (both 10th grade) in the upcoming school year. I have paired it History of the Ancient World: A Global Perspective by The Great Courses. I am using the Study & Teaching Guide for weekly assignments. I would like to add two projects or research paper assignments. I have searched the web for hours for ancient history project assignments and have found a lot geared at sixth grade. Could anyone sh

  7. We live in Manassas, VA (First and Second Battles of Manassas) and we have been to the Manassas Battlefield and the Manassas Museum. This weekend is Civil War Weekend in Manassas but we are not going to any of the events. We also live in a suburb of Washington D.C. and have visited various museums and historical sites there. One of our favorites in VA, though, is the historica triangle: Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. Over the years I have really tried to incorporate the nearby museum, historical sites, and fine arts opportunities into our schooling. It gets harder as they get older and
  8. My son starts at George Mason U next week and I was surprised to find out that three of his classes don't require a textbook. His science teacher will be posting notes to Blackboard. Of the two classes that require a textbook, his math class will be an expensive text but he needs one book that is less than $45 new for English! He is paying for the textbooks so this is a huge relief for his wallet. Anybody else finding this pleasant surprise? Blessings, Cheryl

  13. So I just posted this in another thread. Instead of sending you there I just cut and paste it. Well, here is the list of books that my 9th grader will be reading with world history this year. These are historical fiction and one autobiography. From the Christian Heroes Then and Now series: William Booth, Lottie Moon, Nate Saint, Eric Liddell, and Jacob Deshazer. The Call of the Wild The Story of Thomas Alva Edison (an easy read but keep in mind that I have a dyslexic, reluctant reader) Bully for You, Teddy Roosevelt The Yanks Are Coming Flight of the Fugitives The Winged Watchman K

  15. Do you want American lit books or just history readers? For what time period? I have three boys and my final one that is starting high school only reads what I assign to him. I agree with To Kill a Mockingbird and Old Man and the Sea although my other sons read those junior or senior years. We are studying the civil war and he is about to read Across Five Aprils.

  17. Margie, I tell Parents that attend my workshops to convert outsourced grades to the grading scale they have chosen. So if the grading scale from the online instructor gives an A- for 90-92 but that is an A on your grading scale then put an A on your transcript. You can put a note on the transcript that all outsourced classes have been adapted to your grading scale. Cheryl
  18. I use the same grading scale as my local public school and I state that on the transcript. It should be noted that some colleges will adjust grading scales so that everyone's GPA is calculated the same. So, if you are trying to give your student an edge it may be a moot point. Blessings, Cheryl
  19. I liked MFW English for 11 but was very disappointed with MFW English 12. The only thing that is scheduled is the speech unit. You get a little booklet about writing a research paper but it is not scheduled. I created a schedule for that. There is a list of suggested books and a "novel review" sheet. I selected a couple of books and used Progeny Press guides. I also scheduled a couple of movies and used Zezock guides. If you want to finish out BJU American history then you already have the books and you can schedule it yourself. Economics in a Box is already scheduled in the curriculum its

  21. Generation Change is a short overview and just gets the conversation going about personal finance. Foundations in Personal Finance for Teens is Ramsey's Financial Peace University with clips added for teens and a workbook and tests for teens. Blessings, Cheryl
  22. I suggest adding a PowerPoint project. This requires the same research skills as a term paper but requires different presentation skills. I require that the student do an oral presentation with the PowerPoint slide show. Blessings, Cheryl
  23. MFW uses BJU for American History. My son liked the textbook. He answered the section and chapter questions, completed the student activity pages and took the tests. It is a thorough course. You can have the student check their work and you check the tests. Blessings, Cheryl
  24. If he will eventually go to a 4 year school then, yes, he needs a transcript. Also, you never know when a transcript will be requested later on for another reason. In VA, if a student attends CC and receives an associates degree, then the student does not need ACT scores. The student is also guaranteed enrollment into state schools after receiving an Associates. (The schools do have GPA and course requirements, though.) Check to see if your CC has a guaranteed enrollment policy for transferring into four year schools. Because of your son's age, I would say any coursework done at this point
  25. Thanks for posting this links to past threads. I am putting together a 20th century study for my rising 9th grader. I did it with his older brother but will be changing it up a bit.
