  1. Hello Ladies, I'm wondering about the outlining in Heart of Dakota. I know there isn't a lot required. It's taught in Rod and Staff, but I don't see it being applied. Am I missing something? Does it come later in the High School guides? If not, how have you been able to incorporate it into your students day? Thanks :)
  2. I just wanted to add, that I know exactly how you feel. In fact, I feel it several times a year! I can bang up a schedule with the best of them, but getting myself to do what is on the paper is a whole other story. It is so hard, especially when there are no other options. I look at other families who have the means for private school, and I admit I feel a little jealous at times. However, I try to remind myself that the grass always seems greener etc. I have to pray every single day before my feet hit the floor, "Lord, please give me the strength, discipline, and motivation to accomplis
  3. The child I want to use this with is in 8th grade. We tried Medieval Writing with IEW (2 weeks) and I just did not like it. I felt like the KWO didn't make him think enough. Anyway, I really wanted to like it, but now I am back to the drawing board. Is there one curriculum that teaches everything?
  4. We've done about half of WWS and now we are sampling Writing and Rhetoric Chreia. Would there be value in alternating between the two throughout the year? They seem to be teaching different things (expository vs persuasive). Or should I just focus on one? Is there a writing program that teaches both? Also, does Writing an Rhetoric ever teach outlining? I feel like I need some direction, because I'm so unsure of myself in this area. I don't think I've done so well with my older ones, and I don't want to repeat that mistake :sad:
  5. Wow, thanks! I will check it out. Did your kids like it?
  6. My son is starting his senior year and these are the credits he needs: US Govt. Economics Computer Technology NH State History He is a great student so it can be something independent. I just need it to be very inexpensive. Any suggestions? Thanks! :)
  7. Thank you, Karen! I will check it out. I see you are using LOE with a 7th grader. How is that working? I am using it with my 3rd grader and Foundations with my Kindergartener. I really love it and want to take the rest of my kids through it. However they are all older. How much do you do in a day? You can pm me if you want to. Thanks again, Renee
  8. Thank you all, so very much. I love the community here and how helpful everyone is! I have spent all day working on it, and I feel much better now. I did make a list of his resources, just so I would have it if I needed it some day. I called the CC and they do need a transcript, but not a portfolio or anything. It just feels good to have that done. It has been bothering me for so long! I used "Teascript" and am pleased with the results. Thanks again! :001_smile:
  9. Thank you so much. That makes me feel better. I know his SAT scores will be fine, so like you said, that would be "proof". You wouldn't include any of the resources used?
  10. I need someone to talk me down off this ledge! My son is a senior this year, and I am trying to make his transcripts. Well, lets just say I have not kept very good records. :sad: The last few years have been difficult (moving a lot etc.) and I really failed in this area. My son is a very good student, so I know he did the work. I just don't have a lot of "proof". I have some of his work in boxes etc. but nothing organized or anything. I don't even remember everything he did! The good thing is, he doesn't need to get into a prestigious college or anything. He will just be attending a co

  12. Thank you, ladies, for your help. :) It seems that when I open it up in "Onenote online", it formats the document to fit the page and I can print it from there. Just when I try to print from my desktop version it's a bit tricky. I'm new to Onenote, so I guess there will be some trial and error. Thanks again!
  13. I made these beautiful schedules etc..... then I go to print it and it's 6 pages long. It looks like it's printing from left to right and it's a real pain to resize it just right to fit the width of regular printer paper. Any suggestions to do this a little more quickly? Feeling a little frustrated :glare:
  14. I already have, and yes they were terrific. I probably should clarify….. we don't follow the Maxwells. I wasn't meaning my immediate family.
