  2. Hi WTM forum folks! We wanted to let you know that Susan will be speaking at two homeschool conferences this summer: California: Central Valley Homeschool Convention, July 11-13 in Fresno, CA. http://centralvalleyhomeschoolconventions.com/ Georgia: Southeast Homeschool Expo, July 26-27 in Atlanta, GA. https://www.southeasthomeschoolexpo.com She'll be giving multiple talks at each convention (see their websites for schedule details), and WTM Press plans to have booths at both conventions, where you can browse our books, purchase materials, ask questions, etc. See you there!
  3. Hi there! We're sorry this isn't working for you. It's working fine for us on Firefox and Chrome. If you can give us some more information, it may help us fix the problem. Which browser are you using? And are you on a phone or a computer? Thank you.
  4. A W.T.M. Press employee here, just chiming in to clarify that this discussion is talking about an unofficial Facebook group called Well-Trained Mind....NOT talking about our company Facebook page (which is facebook.com/welltrainedmind). The moderators of that WTM Facebook group aren't connected with the Press or Susan in any way. We haven't banned anybody from our company Facebook page in a long time, and the ones we did ban were folks who denied the reality or distorted the size of certain historical events that happened in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s. Otherwise, we're fairly wide-open in terms of topics.
  5. Oh, I am sorry that is happening! It doesn't seem to be happening to others; I can't replicate it on my end. But we will absolutely make sure that you get only the items you want, and at the sale price. Please email support@welltrainedmind.com with the following info, which will help them help you: What items you were trying to order; What items got added to your cart; whether or not you were "logged in" to the site at the time, and what internet browser you were using. They'll make sure that you get what you need!

  8. This might not be exactly what you're asking about, but Well-Trained Mind Press will be having a Cyber Monday sale. All day Monday, all downloadable products (MP3, PDF) will be discounted by 40%.
  9. Thanks to everyone who emailed us! We've received enough submissions, so we'll be unpinning this thread now.
  10. Hello Hive, Well-Trained Mind Press is in the early stages of revising the book-lists (fiction and non-fiction) in the Activity Book of "The Story of the World, Volume 3." We'll be adding new titles that have come out in the past 15 years (or titles that we missed the first time around!), and deleting some that are so thoroughly out of print that no parent could be expected to find them. We have a plan for doing it that we think will provide a variety of parental viewpoints, and keep any one contributor from getting stuck with too much work. We've divided the book into sections (chapters 1-7, 8-14, etc). Each section would pay a little differently, based on how many books we need to find (you'll notice that some sections need a lot more work than others do). Each contributor can do one, two, or three sections, but no more (to spread the work around). Each section will end up being a combination of the work of two contributors plus our editors. Time Frame: We will ask you to submit a sample list from a particular chapter, to evaluate your abilities. Your full booklists would be due by mid-to-late January of 2019. Here's what we consider a "successfully found" book:- age appropriate - period appropriate - in print (we make occasional exceptions if it's REALLY good) - available in physical form (you can make 1 fiction exception and 1 nonfiction exception per chapter...kindle, etc...but not more than that) - relatively easy to find - write a one-sentence summary like we did in the first edition We will provide a PDF of the original booklist, and a PDF of the actual textbook; we have gone through and crossed out the out-of-print ones or ones we want to delete, and we'll tell you how many fiction and nonfiction books are now needed for each chapter (it's usually between 2 and 8 books needed from each genre). If this interests you, and you feel you could do a good job with it, please contact Justin Moore (justin@welltrainedmind.com) for further information.
  11. Hi all...Many of you had asked about Olive Branch Books' Telling God's Story series, and wondered when Year 4 would be available. Well, the wait is over! Telling God's Story, Year 4: The Story of God's People Continues is now available as a digital download from Olive Branch Books. Author Rachel Stone takes the elementary Bible curriculum into new territory: the Book of Acts and the New Testament Epistles. These weekly lessons guide elementary students through the Scripture texts, while also deepening the understanding of parents and teachers. Each lesson provides background information for the teacher and a scripted explanation of the biblical passage designed especially for children to grasp with ease. When combined with the coloring pages, games, and review activities in the Activity Book (also now available as a PDF download), the Instructor Guide provides a whole school-year of religious instruction. To read samples, explore the whole series by Peter Enns and Rachel Stone, or purchase copies, click here. Churches and schools can contact Olive Branch Books at 1.877.322.3445 for licensing information.
  12. Lady Florida, I've updated your signature with the change you requested. For all of you: I don't have immediate answers to your questions, but I am going to work on finding out and we'll get back to you.
  13. I'm so sorry this is still an issue. Email me [justin@welltrainedmind.com] with the change you'd like to make to your signature.
  14. Win a $200 shopping spree at the Well-Trained Mind Store! It's easy and free (and fun), and no purchase is necessary. We'll provide you with a Paul Bunyan script from our American Tall Tales book. Send us a video (using the link below) of your kids performing the short play. Get creative!

Submissions must be less than 3 minutes long (which means you'll most likely need to select a portion of the play). On July 4th, we will announce the following winners based on participant voting: One First Place winner, $200 in store credit at welltrainedmind.com Two Second Place winners will each receive $150 in store credit at welltrainedmind.com Four Third Place winners each will get a copy of all four companion readers and their accompanying audio MP3s We can't wait to see what you come up with! Enter here.
  15. I don't see any of the clubs/groups missing...it looks like they're all here. Could you please PM me a list of the ones you were involved in that you're not seeing now?
  16. Hi forums folks...just wanted to let you know that we're running a big sale at Well-Trained Mind Press. We're discounting most of our history, grammar, writing, and math titles by up to 36%, and our Jim Weiss audio recordings are also 15% off or more. It's a great chance to stock up on books for next school year, or for summer learning. Want something for yourself? Susan Wise Bauer's books for grown-ups (Rethinking School; The History of Western Science, etc) are discounted by 25%. Sale ends on April 30th.
  17. Hi Tibbie! Thanks for letting us know. We've found a fix that seems to be working for people. Instead of PM'ing me, can you instead send your info to support@welltrainedmind.com? It'll be faster that way. Thanks!
  18. Thanks! We have this on our list of things to fix.
  19. We can change your username if you'd like. Would you like us to change it back to Arctic Mama?
  20. Rod and Staff is grammar and composition, and our curriculum is pure grammar, with no "composition" component--meaning that the books probably will NOT take the 120 hours per year to complete that are necessary for a high school credit. We would suggest awarding a half credit per year for the grammar books and another half credit for writing that the student does using a composition program, in order to come up with a full high school language arts credit.
  21. Many of you saw this on our Facebook page last night, but I wanted all the forum folks to have a chance too: Until 10 AM Eastern Time today, just about everything on Well-Trained Mind Press's online store is discounted by 30%. No coupon codes needed. Save on books, downloads, and CDs by Susan Wise Bauer, Kate Snow, Jim Weiss, Boris Fishman, and more!
