  1. Thanks so much! Looking forward to checking these out.
  2. My plan is that this would be a history course, but would tie in literature as well.
  3. It has been quite a long time since I've been on the forums and for some reason I am having a terrible time with the search feature. I was planning on putting together a 1 semester course on the Civil Rights Movement for my rising junior. I have not had any luck finding something already put together, but I thought I would check here to see if there are must include resources at least. If any of you know of something that has been put together previously, I am open to that as well. Thanks! Laura
  4. The swim suit rule alone would keep my daughter from being able to attend this camp. Not every body type can fit in one piece suits. I'm kind of annoyed by most dress code restrictions anyway as my daughter is long and lean. She can wear 5" inseam shorts to work, but those would not fit the fingertip rule so many have adopted.
  5. Thank you all for your ideas. After sharing with my daughter, she's most interested in forensics.
  6. My oldest will be a senior in the fall. She has taken Biology, Advanced Biology (Anatomy/Physiology), and this semester she took a concurrent Conceptual Chemistry at the local uni. She knows where she wants to go to school and she should be admitted without issue, but because she also wants to play a sport at the school, we won't have 100% certainty of attending until she signs her NLI. All of that info just to show that while she should be admitted to this school regardless of a 4th science, I like to be prepared and would hate for her to be in a bind if something fell through. She isn'
  7. There are homeschool sports leagues all over, though I imagine it is mostly in larger cities. Our local homeschool athletic league offers football, basketball, shooting, track, volleyball, tennis, cheerleading, baseball... I think that's it. We travel at the end of season to play other homeschool leagues from across the country. SO thankful for the opportunity for my kids.
  8. Our local CC has signs posted that you may not take photos or write down information about the textbooks, which are all located behind the counter. So bizarre.
  9. Oh, my... reading this makes me a little sick to my stomach. Thank you, Corraleno, for the head's up. I am so sorry for the headache!
  10. Omnivore's Dilemma or In Defense of Food - both by Michael Pollan.
  11. Every state accepts ASL as a world/foreign language for a graduation requirement. But you'd need to check with universities to see if they will accept ASL (and Latin, for that matter) as an admissions requirement. There are schools who do not accept Latin, as it is a "dead" language.
  12. ​Curious what the older did not like as the course progressed? We are planning to use it for the upcoming year.
  13. Saxon Algebra II at co-op ​BJU World History at co-op ​Chemistry at local uni ​Comp I at local cc Mythology at home Photography local class Health/Nutrition at home Volleyball
  14. I would just want to make sure that a) the class is high school level and b) that the colleges where the child would be applying accept your 9th grade selection as a science credit. :)
  15. This happened to me as well. Although, I was not nursing in the office, no one said anything to me about breastfeeding. I just happened to hear someone else say something about it right before I was prepped. I was disappointed that I had to wait, but thankful I discovered that I needed to wait! ​My LASIK was done in 2004 and I was 20/15 for several years. Currently, my vision is 20/20. :) It was life altering and after a lifetime of glasses I was just beyond happy that I could wake up and see the clock, or go swimming and see what was going on. I am very sensitive to sunlight, so oft
  16. I am in the process of going through the teacher training and getting connected on Yammer. If you are planning on using Big History Project (Alicia!), start here. You won't be sorry. There are book lists and videos and sharing of ideas and ... just get connected! ​Thank you Rose & Tracy for your input.
  17. I didn't even know there was a teacher guide. Not sure of its helpfulness. However, when I went looking for that, I did discover that there is a sample of the student book. This might be helpful. http://schoolstore.sadlier.com/productsList.aspx?CategoryID=61
  18. I have not used it, but I did purchase it. Unfortunately, I almost immediately loaned it out and have not yet received it back. I like the way it is broken into bite size chunks, so it doesn't make things seem so overwhelming. ETA: There are other editions as well. This one has more reviews. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/0821507613/
  19. What about something like this? https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/0821581805/
