  3. He is a fabulous creative writer and that is all he cares about. He is great at writing narrative/descriptive essays because he still gets to tell a story. However, other essays and reports are unorganized with no clear thesis, structure, or support. He does not like taking advice from me or discussing his essays with me. I am a technical and business writer by profession so I have no problems teaching or critiquing him. We have completed IEW Ancient HBWL, TWSS, The Elegant Essay, and the HSEI Live Workshop. We have done more than 1/3 WWS 2 but it was like pulling teeth, we were doin
  4. For those of you who struggle with: · teaching your student writing, · your student’s inability to handle your evaluation or criticism very well, · questioning whether or not your student’s writing is on grade level, or · wondering how an objective third party would view your student’s writing, Would you consider purchasing an evaluation/critique of your students writing, put them in an online class, or enroll them in dual credit at the CC? If classes or CC are not an option because of money or you’re afraid your student would not rise to the ch

  6. The best laid plans...sigh, lol! The following is how science will look on the transcript: 9th Grade - Honors Biology with Lab (1/2 Connections Academy and 1/2 CK12.org honors text) 10th Grade - Anatomy & Physiology with Lab (Self-Designed using Anatomy & Physiology an Interactive Journey Colbert/Ankney/Lee and Anatomy Coloring Book) 11th Grade - Integrated Chemistry & Physics with Lab (DIVE CD with Prentice Hall Concepts in Action) 12th Grade - Marine Biology with Lab (Co-Op: Marine Biology 5th or 6th edition, Castro/Huber) He still wants to add in Forensic Science but
  7. I am definitely in!!! My ds 17 will be doing chemistry either through co-op or at home. Since I don't know anything about the subject we are leaning so far over that we might tip toward the co-op, lol!!!

    I am looking for reasonably priced used copies of Teaching Textbooks CDs and Books in very good or like new condition. Please email me at jibaker0107@gmail.com. I need Algebra 1 ASAP! Jennifer


  9. Thanks for the advice I think I will let him chose between Forensics, A&P, Conceptual Chemistry, and Conceptual Physics.
  10. So do you think it matters if ds has chemistry or physics on his transcript? So far he has taken Biology, Integrated Physics & Chemistry, and Anatomy & Physiology. He wants his forth science to be Forensic Science. All of these are with labs. Is this ok?
  11. Yes, my library offers it free. My son is taking the English Composition 101 course right now and likes it very much. I plan for him to take the other writing courses plus history, government, science, and anything else that strikes his fancy.
  12. My ds 17 struggles tremendously with passing Algebra 1 (this is his 3rd attempt with MUS). He is smart as a whip in all other subjects (TOG History, Literature, and Government). I have had him tested and he is at grade level or above in reading areas and college level in math calculation but a few years below grade level in math fluency and applied problems. Please help me choose a full credit high school level chemistry course that is light or at least holds your hand through the math involved. I have narrowed it down to three secular choices. Please vote and tell me why you have chosen
  13. My son has enrolled in one of the Universal Class writing class and loves it. He can go at his own pace, has an assigned teacher to ask questions and get timely answers, and graded assignments and essays. It eliminates the mom factor and therefore he receives an honest forthright opinion on his writing ability.
  14. My ds needs help with learning to write strong thesis statements, introductions, and conclusions using a variety of essay types. Also he has never written a long research report. I have decided to make it a year long class and teach it at co-op. What do you suggest for curriculum for 10th through 12th graders?
