  1. We're in Hampton Roads and all cancelled.
  2. Thanks! That's a great place to start!
  3. Thanks! Might be worth considering, too
  4. Thank you! That's a great idea. (I mean, my way is the right way, of course, but I'll entertain other ways! HA!) I'll definitely take a look at those. I'm not opposed to middle school level if it makes it easy to understand. Appreciate the help. That sounds interesting! I'll take a look at that Great Courses option!
  5. My ds is a rising sophomore. He's a pretty smart cookie with a good memory, so his note taking skills are poor! However, I know this is a skill he needs to develop now! Does anyone have suggestions for a short course or workbook even that we could use before we resume homeschooling in late August? Thanks so much!
  6. Thank you! This is also an idea worth pursuing for sure! Are you using just the two books or the student study guides as well? In looking over the lesson plans, I see final exam--is that something in the student guide or something created by Starts at Eight?
  7. I saw that. It sounded like they were just worksheets to go along with the videos which isn't exactly what I wanted. I want a course with some depth but Crash Course for a little fun. Thanks though!
  8. I'm looking for a semester long government class that perhaps uses Crash Course and a spine already prepped and ready to go! Does anyone know of such a thing or has anyone created something like this?
  9. That's what I thought, but I couldn't remember and all our test prep stuff is packed up as we are currently moving. Thanks!
  10. My son finished pre-cal this year, and my original intent was to have him do the Math 2 SAT Subject Test in June. Obviously that didn't happen, so we stopped preparing for it. He will do calculus starting in the fall. Should I have him prepare for Math 2 test over the summer and test in August or October or wait until he completes Calculus? On the practices we were doing, the questions he was missing were Geometry with a little bit of Algebra 2 thrown in, so I feel like he needs to hit Khan Academy hard and take the test early in the fall but would love second opinions!
  11. Thank you, LoriD! I always appreciate your viewpoints and thoughts. I had stumbled on Art of Poetry after I posted above. It does look pretty great! Thanks so much! So, you've used it over several years just doing little bits at a time?
  12. We're doing World History this year (Notgrass) and using some of their literature choices as well as some I've supplemented and mixing in Illuminating Literature: When Worlds Collide. Neither Notgrass nor Illuminating Literature cover any poetry at all. I do not have the time or the energy to create something from scratch. Can anyone point me in the direction of something pre-made for poetry? Ideally I'd like something that fits in with world history study but it doesn't have to. What I'm looking for is something similar to what Lightning Literature did for grades 7 and 8. A unit that foc
