  1. My son is taking 3 self study AP courses this year. I know that I cannot list the courses on his transcript as "AP" because that is a trademark of the College Board. My question,then, is how do I indicate those courses on his transcript? Also how is credit determined for AP classes? For example, AP micro-economics and AP macro-economics....are they worth 1 credit each? Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Has anyone used "The 5000 year Leap?" for American Government? What did you think? If you haven't used it....what did you use? I need help planning a course in American government for my ds, a sophomore next year. Thank you.
  3. Has anyone used History Odyssey for high school history? What did you think about it? Did your high school student enjoy it? Thanks for any input!
  4. Well this is quite interesting and affirms what my original thoughts were regarding the grammar portion of a High School English credit. I do agree that literature analysis and composition would be high school work. A book list for each semester for the literature portion sounds simple enough although I am sure it really depends on the specific college and their individual requirements. Thanks Denise in NE!!:001_smile:
  5. Thanks everyone. This has really helped me as I think through my planning for next year. If anyone else would like to chime in, I'd love to hear your thoughts/ experiences as well. I need all the input I can get. :thumbup: ~S~
  6. Pamela, Thanks for sharing your thoughts and opinions. I am asking because my son just finished the 7th grads R&S book in 6th grade. People have told me that you can start giving high school credit in 7th and 8th grade if the child is ready for high school work but I don't necessarily know what constitutes a "high school level" grammar program. The chart in TWTM suggests that the 7th grade R&S book would be the equivalent of freshman grammar and I just needed some input as to whether I was interpreting that correctly. I agree about students needing to continue with grammar stud
  7. In the WTM p.477 it states that you should use the Rod and Staff 7th grade grammat text for 9th grade, the 8th grade text for 10th grade and so on. Am I to understand that after completing RS 7th grade text that it would be the equivalent of 9th grade grammar? I am trying to start a high school transcript this coming school year which is new to me. Please comment/ clarify if you would. I'd appreciate the help.Thanks
