Does making a model of the body systems equally satisfy learning needs of both a seven-year-old and a fifteen-year-old? Probably not. Kathryn Stout's Science Scope helps you identify appropriate activities for different age groups within each science area. This is an extremely useful resource. Divided into four main areas—general science, life science, earth science, and physical science—it takes specific topics under each heading, then suggests methods to use with students at primary, intermediate, junior, and senior high levels. It offers more detail than does Teaching Science and Having Fun!. Science Scope also makes it easy to select appropriate resources for whatever topic is chosen for study. one crease in cover (I dropped a stack of books!) otherwise new $7 Bright Ideas Press: The Scientist’s Apprentice by Hilary Welliver, New except for back cover crease when I dropped it to list it: This exciting, complete one-year science curriculum is presented in an easily understandable manner and is just as easy to use. Introductory information for the teacher provides guidance. Experiments, games, crafts, recipes, writing, songs and more are used to reach different learning styles. Orderly thinking skills (based on the scientific method) are reinforced throughout. Use the recommended student notebook approach as you spend eight weeks on each of four topics: Astronomy, Anatomy, Earth Science, Oceanography. Reproducible pages and a pleasing layout make this a practical choice for busy homeschooling moms. Teach multi-grade levels at the same time. More interesting than a text and easier than creating your own study, the work’s been done for you! Pbk. 200 pages. One year. K-4th $12 Beautiful Feet Books: A History of Science Primary/Intermediate by Rebecca Berg $4 Pasteur’s Fight Against Microbes by Beverly Birch $2 Very minor shelf wear, good to very good condition.$2 Marie Curie’s Search for Radium by Beverly Birch – very good condition. $2 Ellen McHenry: The Elements: An introduction Target audience: ages 8-13 . Very self-explanatory and fun. Description: A basic introduction to the fundamental concepts of chemistry (see “Topics covered” below) but with the interest level of the text and activities geared to students who still like to play while they learn. The student text combines very “meaty” content with whimsical humor, and the teacher’s section has lots of activities, games, songs, crafts, etc. All of these activities provide high-quality learning– they are not “fluff.” The overall theme of the curriculum is cooking and recipes, using cooking to explain chemistry concepts. The curriculum is intended to prepare students for high school chemistry. Topics covered: The definition of an element, the structure of an atom, the invention of the Periodic Table by Mendeleyev, chemical formulas, electron orbitals and shells, the octet rule, arrangement of elements on the Periodic Table, atomic bonding (covalent, ionic and metallic), plus an up-close look at the families on the table: alkali metals, alkali earth metals, transition metals, true metals, non-metals, halogens, noble gases, and lanthanides and actinides. Great activities too! Really fun. I copied pages I wanted the kids to write on for their notebooks. If you want the brain song, it costs .99 to download on her site. $10

  12. We loved the Black Stallion series by Walter Farley. They are older, so very clean material. Gives you real insight into the world of horse racing.
  13. Thank you to everyone who has submitted ideas so far. I can only use books for this co-op literature class, no short stories or poetry. I am willing to consider anything that people have liked. I also need one american lit book - preferably an African American experience book, but really open to anything even remotely uplifting. I picked up Secret Life of Bees yesterday and Things Fall Apart. Forgot to say we read Herriot, Austen, Importance of Being Earnest. Thanks again for any more suggestions!
  14. Hi Everyone, I would love any suggestions for world literature that is NOT depressing. I have spent the summer reading to prepare for my modern world literature class, and am having a difficult time finding books I love. I am really looking to expose the students to different cultures. Students have already read: Cry the Beloved Country The Hiding Place Red Scarf Girl The Road from Home One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich The Chosen All Quiet on the Western Front I have read far and wide, including many much more modern books. So far, they will read: Mountains Beyond Mountains (doctor who works to change life in Haiti, Peru, Russia) Love in the Driest Season (Aids crisis in Africa, life of a journalist, difficulty adopting in Zimbabwe) - a few graphic scenes of bombing Zeitoun (Arab American who tries to be helpful in New Orleans after Katrina, jailed for being a terrorist - Arab discrimination) The Joy Luck Club ( four chinese american immigrant families in San Francisco who start a majong club) Nectar in a Sieve (India-fictional history of a marriage between Rukmani, youngest daughter of a village headman, and Nathan, a tenant farmer) Books need to be no longer than about 300 pages, or these guys won't get it done. If you really love something, even if it is depressing, let me know. Native American, European, African American experience etc is fine. Any help or input is appreciated.
  15. I would like to use Hewitt's Conceptual Physics 9e with my daughter. I have several questions: 1. Does anyone have a syllabus of which review questions/exercises/problems that were assigned? 2. Is there any sort of answer key for this stuff? I cannot sort out even what to try to purchase! 3. Is there anything else that I need or that is useful/helpful? Thanks for any help!
  16. My older daughter felt that she learned a lot from the Apologia text, and in-depth, without being overwhelming. She went on to complete the Anatomy course as well. Her public school friends had texts that covered more, but she feels that she actually UNDERSTANDS complex concepts that her friends do not.
  17. I agree with JennW. I also expect effort and improvement in skills. Rubrics are for busy classroom teachers mechanically grading a large pile of papers. That being said, I always provide written expectations for my kids before they write a paper - what skills I expect them to focus on as well as clear parameters for the assignment. For instance, an argument essay should clearly take a side of an issue, as well as recognize and refute the OTHER side of the argument. I expect a clear introduction, organized body points and a conclusion. We have a meeting beforehand and jot down some notes so that we are both clear on the expectations and how the paper will be graded. A first draft is submitted, feedback is given, and a re-write is done. Final grades are given only when we are both satisfied with the paper. I keep all drafts of papers to show improvement and justify grades. Hope that helps you!
  18. Hi, I am trying to schedule chalkdust Algebra 2 - how????? My child tends to be slow in math, so I need some idea of how others have done it so that I can hold her feet to the fire enough to get through the material. Does anyone have a schedule, or a written record of which problems were done on certain days. I am doing this for another student as well as my own, so I don't feel like it can be as flexible as I usually am - I can't just see how it goes because someone else is depending on me too. Please help me! I thought I would be able to do this easily, but I am absolutely hitting a roadblock and panicking. Thanks for any help! Jen
  19. Does anyone have a schedule that they used for Chalkdust Algebra 2? I really don't know what to do and don't want to reinvent the wheel! Thanks for any help! Jen
  20. Hi everyone,I just purchased the older editions of Chalkdust Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 for my daughters. I have no clue how to schedule this. Does anyone have a list of how long the DVDs are? What about a daily schedule mapping out which problems to do? General advice? Please someone rescue me so that I can have some sort of summer! I am teaching another child as well and need a syllabus for him to follow when he is not with me. Thank you for any help in these two areas! Jen
  21. Yes, they do sell the disks separately at $25 per disk x6 disks=$150! I was hoping for a more economical option:tongue_smilie:
  22. I need some help finding which chalkdust dvds line up with my book ...do they have an isbn or a date? My book is Algebra 2 second edition special edition for chalk dust company isbn 0618107789 I hope somebody can check their set and tell me which ones they have. I would also consider buying another full set, perhaps a newer version.... Thanks for any help! Jen:)
  23. Around here, most kids strive for honors and AP courses. Our local university REQURES many of these. I will go with both college competition, as well as outside pressure regarding homeschooling. I know a lot of homeschoolers in our area who don't worry about it, but they usually don't end up going to top universities, either. My daughter just wants to go to our local university, but she is hoping to get a scholarship so that she can live on campus instead of at home. I feel a lot of pressure for my kid to take AP and honors courses, as we live in a college town, and many of her friends have professors for parents. These parents put a HUGE emphasis on school, and are constantly questioning and evaluating what I am doing in our homeschool. Needless to say, I have become very good at switching the subject!
  24. I couldn't find a price on it either. I emailed them, but haven't heard anything back yet.
  25. I just posted on another thread checking to see if anyone knew about "Economics in a Box". http://www.economicthinking.org/curriculum/EconomicsinaBox/ It looks interesting, but it's impossible to tell what it is like. No student or teacher pages shown. I can't even find much info on the materials used. I just thought you might want to see it. Jen
