  1. So, my brother in law was just diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and at first it was like living "a beautiful mind." We all felt like part of who he was died. Mental illness is so very sad not just for those around the person but mostly for the patient. Losing your mind cannot be easy. My only & best suggestion is to take advantage of his moments of clarity and beg him to be medicated. It makes a world of difference. Hugs to you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Well, this is our 6th year so I would like to think I have learned a thing or two by now about what works... but there are still some areas I need to perfect LOL.... 7th Grade: Loving: Saxon Math- After working though 1b-4a of Math in Focus my daughter tested into Saxon 7/6. We needed something more spiral. It has been slooooooow like we still have have 7 lessons, 2 tests and an investigation before we get to start 8/7 and we started 7/6 over a year ago! She still manages to test off the charts though so I will take it. I wonder sometimes if MIF wouldn't be more fun but I am so happy with how well she is doing and she is happy with how well she does that we see no reason to jump to something else. BookShark Eastern Hemisphere- We are longtime Sonlight turned BookShark lovers in this house. She adores nearly all the book selections and asks me to pick their books for summer reading also. She has been completely enthralled with Eastern culture since she was little because she was born in Korea while we were stationed there so this has been fun for her. Elemental Science Chemistry for the Logic Stage- She loves that the experiments come first and the DK book. I also ended up getting a subscription for MEL Chemistry just because she loves science. English LA- Easy Grammar, AAS, Vocabulit, Writing According to TWTM (Narrations in Science, History Outlines & Literary Analysis based on her readers) Latin For Children A Rosetta Stone Japanese 1 Sphero Shakespeare in Bits (A Midsummer Night's Dream) A Child's History of Art Sculpture
  3. My daughter is in 7th and struggled with outlining last year. I follow the Well Trained Mind Methods but apply them to the curriculum we choose. We are using BookShark Eastern Hemisphere which comes with a "notebook" to fill in. I tweak this "notebook" to follow TWTM. For example this is our first week studying Russia. So she read a section of the spine outloud to me. Then I sat with her and read each paragraph one at a time and asked her to tell me what she thought the main idea of said paragraph was and she wrote the answers down in her notebook. Then she had mapwork as assigned. The next day we did the same. Every few days we cook a meal or do a fun project around the topic. Her readers and read alouds are also scheduled and pertain to the history. I like that the books are already picked out for us, it keeps things simple. Our plan for outlining is to start with the One level outline and work up to a three level outline by the end of this year and I am having her write literary essays from her readers. Her science has narratives and outlining also so that everything gets covered. I think something that is key is the hand holding and walking them through the process several times until it clicks as a previous comment stated.
