  1. My daughter is in the Arch program at KU. It’s great! They are NAAB accredited. It’s a five year master’s program (straight to M.Arch out of high school-no bachelor’s required). It’s a great school. If you happen to be in KC, you can even get a head start by taking the first year studio classes in high school at JCCC. First year studio classes are killer, though. Crazy amount of work. Not for the faint of heart.
  2. The box for these fits perfectly! https://www.amazon.com/Blank-Flash-Card-Dispenser-cards/dp/B001HA93H8/ref=sxin_7_ac_d_rm?ac_md=3-2-YmxhbmsgZmxhc2ggY2FyZHMgMngz-ac_d_rm&crid=1GOQJY2WIFUJ5&cv_ct_cx=blank+flash+cards&dchild=1&keywords=blank+flash+cards&pd_rd_i=B001HA93H8&pd_rd_r=f9ee00ce-f149-45b2-a5ab-a766c70e6857&pd_rd_w=NAlL7&pd_rd_wg=XG9KQ&pf_rd_p=e3dc9e0c-9eab-4c3e-b43a-ba36f8522e14&pf_rd_r=P1BJBQ3PS5F3CJHZFAHX&psc=1&qid=1595382005&sprefix=Blank+flas%2Caps%2C170&sr=1-3-12d4272d-8adb-4121-8624-135149aa9081
  3. Thank you! The instructor listed was Gunther. Was this the teacher your child had?
  4. Has anyone taken these classes at Excelsior? Reviews? Thanks!

  6. My son has asked for one. He’s mid-way through intermediate logic now. He does programming and is great at math.
  7. My daughter used this book at WHA. They skipped the trig part because it is covered again in precalc. So I’d consider any trig learned as extra prep for precalc.
  8. I’ve found the Dociani textbooks Algebra and Algebra 2 easy to teach and comprehensive.
  9. My daughter wants to major in architecture (and possibly sign language). She also prefers a small-medium size Christian college. She loves Hillsdale and would like a similiar college that offers a B Arch or M Arch. She’s an excellent student with great act scores. I’m having a hard enough time finding schools with a B. Arch, but I’m completely striking out on Christian college that offers it. Anyone?
  10. So if my kid says he absolutely can’t visualize a word—imagine it is written on a page or a board, what would you suspect?
  11. What would you do? My 8th grade son has significant problems with spelling. This is not new. We've worked on it for many, many years. He has no reading problems. He reads difficult, long books without trouble (Lord of the Rings, Adventures of Huck Finn, everything by Orson Scott Card). We've tried All about Spelling, Spell to Write and Read, Logic of English, always with the phonics based emphasis. This last year we switched to Rod and Staff with an additional 15 minutes/day word drill on spelling city. That seemed to work better than anything and I saw significant improvement.
  12. It isn’t new for bookshark. We used about half of it last year. We thought we’d love it, but my kiddo ended up switching to BJU at semester. It may just be us. As much as sonlight appeals to us, we’ve tried it before and always drop it. This science oriented kid just didn’t find it challenging enough and wanted the feedback of tests. I have a complete set I’m getting ready to sell if you are interested.
  13. What’s the quality of the new 7th science teaching? Clear? Does it have enough review?
