  1. My ds loves the WTMA German classes! He has learned so much.
  2. Thanks for your help. I'll look into Blue Tent as well.
  3. I’m looking for an online AP Bio class for my son for next year. I’ve read that CTY’s course is good, but I’d like to hear first hand from people whose kids have taken it. I’ve also heard rumors that they’ve switched from Thinkwell to something else - anyone know if this is true, and if so what? Also open to other ideas of providers for AP Bio! Thank you!
  4. Hello, Can someone provide me with some feedback on the AOPS precalculus class at WTMA with Erin Kennedy? I mainly want to know about quality of instruction, also workload, what is typically assigned for homework, etc. I am familiar with classes on artofproblemsolving.com, but am interested in how WTMA's AOPS precalculus class compares. Thank you! Jackie
  5. I'm glad to hear about the positive experiences with Marissa Henry. I also am curious about the class content. What kinds of topics are addressed in the Rhetoric I class? My DS is on the young side, so I'm trying to decide if the content will be age appropriate for him. Does the class cover any literature or do any literary-based discussion/essays? I guess what I'm asking is what the difference is between Rhetoric I and something like Lange's persuasive writing.
  6. Thanks for the suggestion, SeaConquest. I was looking at CLRC Great Books, but we already have history covered. It looks like Dr. Turscak teaches Great Books at CLRC.
  7. Thank you, RootAnn. I need to decide whether we can afford Lange. I assume from what's been said on this forum that she is worth every penny. Kalypso, I agree. I would like to hear some reviews before deciding.
  8. I see that the teacher for Rhetoric I has changed from Thomas Hummel to Marissa Henry. I read stellar reviews of Hummel's class, but can't find anything about Henry's class. Could anyone with experience provide a review please? Other possibilities we're considering for after EW2 are Lukeion's Muse on the Loose, Lange's Intro or Year 1 Lit, and MCT online Lit or AAW. Thanks in advance! Jackie
  9. DS12 has taken EW1 and EW2 and is thinking of Rhetoric I for 2019-20, but I see that the teacher has changed from Thomas Hummel to Marissa Henry. I read stellar reviews of Hummel's class, but can't find anything about Henry's class. Could anyone with experience provide a review please? Other possibilities we're considering are Lukeion's Muse on the Loose, Lange's Intro or Year 1 Lit, and MCT online Lit or AAW. Thanks in advance!
  10. Does anyone have feedback on the new PA Homeschoolers Honors English Language Arts taught by Jody Best? Thanks!
  11. We get the HIG, textbook, workbook, and challenging word problems. In my opinion, this builds the strongest foundation for later math.
