    Circe Homer Literature Guide

    Well I went ahead and purchased the Iliad and Odyssey bundle. The samples looked really good.. I'm looking forward to adding this to our line up for next year!
  3. My daughter will be reading Odyssey and Iliad next year. I'm interested in purchasing the literature guides from Circe Institute. Has anyone used these or heard anything about them? I want something to help with comprehension, critical thinking and digging deeper, but I don't want something that going to be burdensome in amount of workload.
  4. How helpful or essential are the video lessons for Friendly Chemistry?
  5. I’m thankful that I came across this post. Thank you for the resources, Lori!!!
  6. Thank you so much, Marne!
  7. I'm debating whether or not to use Guest Hollow Chemistry in the Kitchen or Friendly Chemistry. I like that Friendly Chemistry seems to be a little more traditional in content and if we decided to use it I will still add in some living books. My concern with FC is that a lot of the activities seems to be geared toward a group/co-op setting. My daughter is the last one in the nest and would be using this alone. I don't want her feeling frustrated because she can't do many of the activities nor do I want to feel like we are missing out on educational opportunities because I choose the wrong curriculum. How necessary and valuable are the activities and games that require multiple people? Are the experiments the same way or can they be done independently? I'm wanting something that will still involve labs even if it's unconventional. Thank you!
  8. I agree! I thank you so much for your thorough review!!!
  9. Merry, have you used either of these? Other than Chem 101 being video based, how do they compare?
  10. Can anyone compare Friendly Chemistry and Ellen McHenry’s Carbon Chemistry? I’ve used CC and FC seems to have some similarities with the home labs, games and printables. What are some other similarities and differences? I’m also considering Chem 101, with Happy Atoms & living books. Thanks!

    Tragedy.... need advice...

    I'm so very sorry, GeoKitty! You've received lots of good advice here already. Will keep you all in prayer.
  12. I know that Master Books Chemistry for high school if fairly new, but I was hoping to find some reviews for it. Is anyone using it? How is it going? I have a slightly math phobic daughter who will likely not be a STEM major. I own the 2nd edition of Apologia chemistry, but don't think it will be a good fit for her. I'm considering Friendly Chemistry, but am curious about Master Books. I'd prefer something that teaches directly to the student that isn't too heavy on math. The lab supplies for Master Books is $$$ so that's a definite negative. Any other thoughts out there? I'm just looking for something high school credit worthy, to cover the basics of chemistry for my college-bound, non science kid.

    Future missionaries?

    I agree! We are missionaries and have graduated and launched two daughters from the mission field. One returned to the states to attend university to earn her degree in education, and my middle would like to remain in the mission field. She isn't sure where she will go or how she will serve, but she is currently attending a Bible college in Hungary where she did a one-year missions program. She recently decided to continue her studies to earn her degree in theology. She has a heart for MK's and supporting church planters in the field. She's learned that having a degree can help open up opportunities to enter certain countries, and to work/serve at international Christian schools, teaching English, etc.
