  6. Thank you, Creekland. I just hope it doesn't last too long. My family is directly affected - forced leave without pay. We'll find out tomorrow if benefits are affected in addition to pay. ETA: This on the heels of the summer furlough, all on top of the pay freeze that went into effect in 2009. This is wrong. I also keep seeing comments on FB showing ignorance about who government employees are. They are not just in high-ranking positions or cush upper-class jobs, they are very much also the lower working class and everything in between.
  7. For those that want to make a debate or argument out of this, I did state I wasn't interested in that from the start. I was answering the OP. What you choose to research further and suspect is true or false is up to you. Like I said, I don't care to argue this. I don't have that kind of time. You do & think whatever you want. I put my 2 cents out there b/c the OP asked. Those are some of my reasons for not liking CCS. Some quick internet searches are all I had time for, and below is what I got. No, it doesn't address every point you asked for a link for, but I figure if you really
  8. None of this even touches on the fact that federal involvement (RttT funds or otherwise) in CCS violates the constitution (see Article 1, Section 8; and the 10th Amendment). I agree with the recommendation to read the actual standards. Don't forget the appendices, your state's own legislation & budget measures relating to CCS implementation, and commentary by CCS authors themselves. You'll likely have to read outside of the actual standards to learn about the student database plan. That is written elsewhere by the various authors, consortiums, companies, and others involved; not in
  9. That common core is more rigorous is a deception, IMO. The changes in the ways children are guided to think actively goes against logic & promotes emotion-based "mob-think", from some of the CCS materials I've seen. I'm thinking of the changes Zaner-Bloser made to their L.A. program to align, specifically. Many people take issue with CCS not so much because of the dumbed down standards - and if you watch how they are implementing those standards, often it is sadly dumbed down even from what it was before - but because of other requirements written into it. Surely you've heard the re

  19. OH yes, I've been googling & finding a lot more, but no concise core text, really. I'm just going to have to stick with the outline of the course & fill it in as I find things. Thanks for the links, Shannon! The 4-H Dog books are one of just a few things that come close to being a core (or "spine"). Alison, yes, that one is in my Netflix queue with quite a few other dog movies. One person IRL told me about an AgriScience & Technology and Companion Animals textbook by Prentice Hall/Pearson. That's not the exact title, but I know it's close. From the bits I've been able to

  21. I need help planning my 7th grader's elective. He wants to do "Dog Science"; sort of a Canine Science/Veterinary Medicine course, but on a middle school level. I've got a home-made rough syllabus outline based on the TOC of an Equine Science book I was able to look at, but I'm not sure what to use to flesh it out. I don't mind putting together my own thing or using something wholly or partially pre-made (or multiple things to fulfill multiple points in the syllabus). I'm looking for either canine- or veterinary-specific resources. I have a few bits and pieces - websites, an online game fro
  22. What a blessing; thank you so much! I let my 7th gr. son look through various history texts and he said he likes the K12HO best. He has also mentioned numerous times a desire for "movies" to be part of his history course. He & my other children want to study American history this year, so this is perfect! Thank you for sharing your work so generously. :thumbup:
  23. I'm not sure how "secret" these are, but Bright Ideas Press has a history/literature-based language arts program called Illuminations and science programs called Christian Kids Explore (Biology, Earth & Space, Chemistry, Physics). Usually people associate BIP with MOH. DK makes teacher's materials in a binder w/ a CD-Rom; I have one titled "Earth". HHMI (Howard Hughes Med. Inst.) puts out DVDs & CD-Roms for review - free of charge. I have 3 that I got just for agreeing to review them. Instructional Fair (now Frank Schaffer or Carson-Dellosa) has some good materials in th
  24. Beef it up per the instructions in the logic stage of TWTM. Somewhere in there, it says if you still have grammar age students using SOTW, just have the logic stage students join in the main lesson and then do the WTM logic stage history assignments on the SOTW chapter topic. You could also use it in addition to another program (scheduled alongside it, such as Hakim's History of US, MOH, etc.) or use a program that schedules SOTW such as Biblioplan or Sonlight. I think History Odyssey uses SOTW as well. Some of these programs rearrange the order of the SOTW chapters for various reasons.
  25. I'm doing what Wendy did - sticking it out w/ Abeka through 6th grade. That was my plan all along, but it's been so long now that I can't remember the reason. If you do decide on Saxon, I think it was Swimmermom (Lisa) on these boards who made an extremely helpful post detailing points in the lessons where you might need to step in and give the child the big picture since Saxon inches forward in tiny increments. Some kids need to understand that what they are doing now is part of a bigger process. If her post doesn't list the level(s) you're looking at, you could simply look ahead in the b
