  1. Thanks to you all for your responses. Our ds is actually a junior (barely) right now. He is finishing his third semester at this university. He stayed home and went to our CC his first year after high school and transferred credits to his current university. His first semester away was a disaster; he retook two classes his second semester. Time Mgmt and test-taking are his real issues. He has never been good at taking tests. We have been very supportive of our ds, and yes, we have asked many times, "How can we help you?" We're not doing this out of anger or as a punishment,
  2. Let me be clear...he's not failing, he's not partying, he's not gaming, his college has not kicked him out and he's not on academic probation. He is attending all classes and is turning in all assignments. His time management skills are poor; he thinks he's allowed himself enough time to study for a test or to complete a project, he thinks he's studied enough for a test, he thinks he understands a concept well, etc. He attends study groups when available, he visits professors during office hours to get add'l help with concepts, he has an academic consultant (that he's paying for) that h
  3. Wow, I wish I'd had something like this for last year. Good thing I have my younger ds to use this. Thank you!

    I'm looking for Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome. I don't care if it's paperback or hardcover but I'd like to pay $5 or less, if possible. If you have it and would like to sell it, please lmk what your price is. Thanks so much, Pam jpklehm@comcast.net

    I'm selling the hardcover textbook, in excellent condition, for $15. All accompanying materials (study guides, lab manual, annotated teacher's book, etc.) can be found at Amazon. Email me at jpklehm@comcast.net, if you're interested.


  6. I just had to bump this back up so others could read it. Nan's post is so touching and really made me sit back and think about how I interact with my ds who is 13. Just because he's taller than his dad and wears size 11 shoes doesn't mean he is an adult. He's just trying really hard to figure it all out and I need to remember that. So I put this back at the top so hopefully more people will get a chance to read a timely and moving post. :) Thanks again, Nan!
  7. Great idea...can think of many uses for a couple of these. Where would I find them? Any suggestions? Pam Oops, sorry...question has been asked and answered. Need to read entire threads before posting my question!
  8. Yes, thank you for the Lightning Lit suggestion. I actually had heard of this before and had saved it in my Bookmarks on my computer (all in caps, so I wouldn't forget it! lol) and then forgot about it. :huh: I needed the reminder, clearly! I ordered from them and am very excited. It's exactly what I was looking for! Thanks again, PAM
  9. Thanks, everyone who responded. Unfortunately I would probably need the answers for some of the books, but certainly not all. I've tried to find the IG from here, ebay, and local hs groups but with no success. But perhaps it's more important for me to have at least the schedule so I can follow that and make sure my ds has a good year of reading some classics! $10 isn't too much to pay for crossing that goal off my list, I know. I like the book lists a lot and was wondering if there is another company who offers something similar to Sonlight, with a schedule, comp questions, and a
  10. I've never ordered from Sonlight before and am confused by what they offer. I am looking for an organized and scheduled literature program for my to-be 7th grader. I like the books offered in the 130 Reading Packages and Literature program but it appears that since it's part of a "Core" that the IG isn't included. So the $177 is just the actual books but with no schedule and no summaries/comp questions? It also appears that I can't order this literature program separately? :confused: I'm lost here and would appreciate any help you can give me. Is there another program out there
  11. Hi, Does anyone happen to know if Forensics Competitions are available for middle schoolers, or if they start at the high school level? I've been reading the AFA's website and it looks like it starts at the high school level. Just wanted to ask to see if I could get my son into one locally or if he's too young. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you, Pam
  12. Thank you, Shalynn! I especially like Glencoe...I really appreciate your suggestion. I think this will work out well. I can refer to TWTM for a list and go from there. Perfect! I also had forgotten about No Fear, Shakespeare and the other link you posted reminded me of those. Super, thanks again! Any other resources, fellow posters? Pam
