  1. Where is she teaching? Do you mind to share a link? Thanks.
  2. I am interested. ✋ We have three more years but it goes so quickly that this has been on my mind.
  3. :iagree: I have a son going into the 10th grade and am looking at class options. Please PM the name so I don't sign up. Thanks!
  4. I just signed my son up for ASL beginning in the fall. The instructor has excellent reviews. He teaches from his own platform here, or at Bright Ideas Press. I also saw an ASL offered at Empower recently.
  5. This 8 qt Instant Pot is on Amazon's Deal of the Day right now for $81.99. I just got mine! :hurray:
  6. Following, as we are planning to use LA1 next year. I have Henle but am unsure about it. I thought about trying to use it as a backup for explanations when ds needed more help, or I needed more explanation.

    Apologia Biology Set to include: *Instructional DVD (retail & paid $147.75) *Text, Tests & Solutions Manual (retail $61.95) *Microscope Kit from Home Science Tools *new* (paid 52.95 +s/h) *Printed flashcards (paid $21.99 from Christianbook) *Book: A Short Guide to Writing about Biology (used $5.99 Amazon) These together would be $290.64. I am asking $225 with media mail shipping. This is less than buying the DVD, Text set and lab together. I also have a Student Manual I can include, but there is writing in the first three modules. If you are interested, just let me know. We used this set for a few months but it was not a good fit for my son and we have switched to another curriculum. My loss is your gain! Please message with any questions or if you are interested. Thanks! --- Scope: Exploring Creation With Biology is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation. Methodology: This course was written specifically for homeschoolers. It is designed with the idea that the student is working alone with the course. This means that all of the explanation that a teacher would normally give orally in class is included in the book, step by step. This is also why the course is written conversationally, to make the student feel like someone is speaking directly to him or her. Labs: Exploring Creation with Biology contain 3 different types of labs: microscope labs, dissection labs, and household labs. The household labs use only household equipment and should definitely be done. Pacing: This text contains 16 modules. Each module should take you about 2 weeks to complete, as long as you devote 45 minutes to an hour of every school day to studying biology. The one exception to this rule is Module #6, which will take you tree weeks to complete. At this pace, you will complete the course in 33 weeks. Pre-Requisites: This course has no formal pre-requisites. This course is designed to be the student’s first high school science course. Typically, we recommend that the student take this course during the same year that he or she is taking Algebra 1. Students who take and understand this course will be very well prepared for a tough university biology course.

    From Oak Meadow's description for this high school course: This course presents a clear and comprehensive coverage of geography, encourages active learning, and introduces the tools and technologies used by geographers. The course is organized into eleven units by geographic region, with individual lessons on each region’s physical and cultural geography, and its place in the modern world. Throughout the course, students learn how geography has affected historical events in various regions of the world, and case studies provide opportunities to discuss the environmental challenges facing the world’s regions. The following books are included with this course: World Geography Syllabus Glencoe World Geography *** (Used, Good to Very Good condition) ((This course sells for $135, plus the TE)) I am also including the Teacher's Edition (paid $35) and two extra workbooks that were included with the Glencoe textbook. I purchased this set and another to compare. Both Oak Meadow books are new/unused. The Glencoe textbook is worn (outside) and older but usable. Oak Meadow also has a Common Core Supplement pdf for this course for those who need it: Link Asking $125 OBO (Posted on a local homeschool page as well) Please message with any questions or for additional information. Thanks!
