  1. HELP! PLEASE!! I’m at a conference in another state with my husband this week. I came along to use this time as planning retreat: while he’s in meetings all day, I’ll be near the hotel coffee shop or pool, gearing up for the new school year and writing out my lesson plans for our first week next week. BUT!!! When I unpacked my bag, I discovered that I left my TRISMS DAW teacher guide book AT HOME!! I can’t believe it! This was the main thing I was planning to work on this week! 😖😫😩 Is there ANY way someone could send me a copy (picture, file, whatever) of the lesson plan grid for DAW Uni
  2. I need modern, easy-to-read versions (or both in one) that give the basics of The Iliad and The Odyssey but for high schoolers who are upper elementary or middle school reading level. Don't throw rotten stuff at me, but I don't like the formal language of Church or Colum. And I do NOT want graphic novels. Is there something *slightly* easier than Rosemary Sutcliff's versions or Roger Lancelyn Green's versions? I've been researching like crazy, and I'd love some feedback on the following: The Iliad by Nick McCarty The Odyssey by Robin Lister The Iliad and The Odyssey by G
  3. Thank you. 😊 This could be helpful, although I still need a physical book.
  4. Do you have a favorite book about music and musical instruments in the ancient world--Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, etc.--for middle school level?
  5. If I plan to use only the textbook (no CDs) and grade the student’s work myself using the Answer Key & Test Bank, would I do just as well to use the first edition of Teaching Textbooks Algebra 2 rather than buy the 2.0 version? Is there all that much difference in content, or is the main difference the self-grading aspect of the 2.0 CDs? Again, we will NOT be using the CDs and we’re also not interested in the online version, just the book and answer key. Thanks!
  6. Thanks. I guess I misunderstood what you meant. 😊
  7. I know these were old posts, but can either of you share a link to the PDF of Reading Through the Ages (2006)?
  8. Just curious... after CLE Math 800, has anyone skipped Teaching Textbooks Algebra 1 and gone directly into Teaching Textbooks Algebra 2? If so, did you use TT Algebra 2 first edition or 2.0?

  10. No, I'm not set on the history tie-in. They actually seem to notice (!) and enjoy (!) when they read something in one subject area that they are familiar with because of something we did in another, so even if it's loosely connected, I think it works best.
  11. I read it as a child and again as an adult, but I didn't like it as much at Little House.
  12. The girls I will be teaching in the upcoming year range from 13-16. NONE of them enjoy reading, and I generally have to pick books that are 5th-6th grade reading level. They recently read (or tried to read) Calico Captive--Scholastic says it's for grades 6-8--and they didn't get it at all. I had to explain EVERYTHING. It's hard to find books that are accessible to their reading level AND interesting to them.
  13. Thank you for your kind words! It is challenging, to say the least, but I feel that I am making a difference in at least a few young lives! My own children were gifted learners, so this endeavor has been QUITE different. ? My "baby" graduated 5 years ago and went away to college, and people in our community started contacting me about teaching their daughters. Most days I LOVE what I do. ?
  14. I agree. My daughter and I talked about this as well back when she read them around age 8 or 9. (She's 23 now and just got married!)
