  1. Anyone know of a secular book like Do Hard Things - the book that inspires teens to do big things with their life and this world? Looking for my 16 year old son. Thanks!
  2. thinking i'd rather have secular science for my new 3rd grade student. Any ideas for curriculum?
  3. I would like something secular for grades 7th, 5th and 2nd. I did a search and came across alot of either non-secular or high school levels.
  4. Does anyone subscribe? I do and I haven't gotten a magazine since the Feb/Mar issue. Has anyone gotten a more recent issue?
  5. Ok so we are almost 100% on this using sonlight thing LOL my next burning question is about the science for core 1 lvl up. Is it secular or is it ID based? I know I can just skip it and use something else but again it's that open box ready to go aspect that is really appealing LOL In all of my research science is the spot I have struggled with the most as I have found it near impossible to find a good everything you need science curriculum written in a secular way which is important to us. I keep going back and forth about doing science the WTM way or being easy on myself planning wise and just buying something that is already made for me and ready to go :tongue_smilie: I caved for K and got Mcguffy but I think I want something a bit meatier and more experimenty for 1st on up if possible. Dh and I are big science geeks and will supplement like crazy regardless but it would be nice to have an open box to use as the spine. ooo also does it progress in a WTM sort of way or does it sort of skip around topic wise for each level? thanks again all!
  6. My son will be starting 9th next year and I was re-reading TWTM. It doesn't seem to have much in the way of options other than my local CC and apologia. He can't start at the local CC until he is 16 so that is out. We did Rainbow Science this year. What are good secular options? I don't mind the creationism theory but I also want the evolution theory to be taught. Also my son says as of right now he would like to be an orthopedic doctor. Also I was looking at the books for Source Reading that were suggested. Has anyone used Joy Hakim's series for this? The Story of Science? They come with workbooks and such if you wanted them. If you have used these for your high-schooler, how was it used? Thanks!
  7. After having several years of an unschooling approach to science, I would like to do things more formally. Also, I've always considered my oldest daughter strong in science, but recent test scores showed otherwise. :glare: Any suggestions for something that is easy to implement, secular and can be combined with 1st and 3rd graders? Thanks in advance!
  8. This product is listed as "contains distinctly Christian content" on the IEW website, but is there so much there that it couldn't be used as a secular program? Has anyone tried this?
  9. I'm looking for a traditional program similar to R&S math only secular. I would be using it in conjunction with Miquon. Any ideas? :bigear:
  10. Hi- I am thinking of starting one in my town, as the closest one is 40 minutes away and it's quite Christian. Any tips/links/advice on how to start a coop? I'd like to offer Latin, perhaps Science, and Literature to start. Thank you! ETA: technically, I'd be happy to hire teachers and have people pay. For certain subjects, i think having a trained teacher might be better.
  11. I'm hoping that you can help me to decide what to use for my older ds next year. He's 11 and will be in 6th grade. He's advanced in LA and history is his favorite subject. For history we used History Odyssey Ancients 2. Ds really likes HO and would gladly continue with it next year. He likes writing, he likes mapwork, he likes the timeline entries. I like the fact that it is thorough and it looks (from what I can tell online) that the Middle Ages 2 touches on history in Asia and Africa and not just Europe. What doesn't appeal to me about HO is that it seems a bit dry. I will be using Oak Meadow with my 4th grader and now I'm wondering whether I should go with OM for older son too. OM appeals to me because it seems like the writing and projects require more creative thinking whereas the writing in HO is more just straight reporting of facts. However the first semester of OM6 is Ancients which we've already done this year and it doesn't seem quite so in-depth as HO as far as amount of material covered. Ideas? Suggestions? Thanks!
  12. I know this has been asked but I'm wondering if there is anything new out there. It is such a struggle to find non-Christian history curricula. If not a complete program, is there even a book list that has only secular titles? I am so tired of buying books only to realize too late that they are not secular! Thanks.
  13. I gave up trying to find an all-in-one LA curriculum long ago. So now I'm piecing together my own but much of what I look at is Christian. Can someone list for me some secular LA resources? So far I can think of: GWG Easy Grammar MCT AG CW Writing Strands Bravewriter AAS Sequential Spelling What else???
  14. Does anybody know of an academically rigorous secular biology course that includes a lab component? My dd is aiming for highly selective (secular) colleges, and we are having a terrible time finding an adequate biology course. I am considering having her do PA Homeschoolers AP biology, since she had a very strong middle school biology course (in public school). For various reasons community college isn't an option, and she would prefer not to just read a textbook (she's very social, and an auditory learner--also very bright).
  15. Have any secular families done CC and enjoyed it? There are three local home school groups in my area and they ALL require you to sign a statement of faith. We are not religious and can't do that, so we can't get involved in any of the local groups and are feeling pretty isolated. I do have one friend who is also schooling at home, but that's it. We're a military family, so we don't have a long history in the area and I'd really like DD to have more exposure to other people. Plus, it sounds like fun. Can anyone weigh in on this idea? Thanks!
  16. And if so, what do you think--too overtly Christian? I like the rigor from what I see on the exams, but was wondering how religious it was. Thanks for any input.
  17. We're starting ancients in the fall, and I'm thinking about maybe doing a tour of prehistoric times over the summer to get us geared up. In my ideal world, we'd focus on each era and/or period of geologic time and look at the general climate, flora and fauna. Of course, some time frames will provide more material than others, and it would also be fun to focus on different types of dinosaurs and things like that. Maybe a look at different types of fossils and how they are formed too. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had come across any fabulous materials that would approach the subject in this way. Children's encyclopedias or other "spine" type books? Activity book? Lapbook? Other fun stuff?
  18. Hey all- I enjoy reading WTM-oriented blogs, so post yours here and I'll add you to my google reader :)
  19. I would love the address to any and all secular blogs, especially those that tend to follow along WTM lines? I would also love any better Early, than late sites, preschoolers being homeschooled ? You can PM me if you wish. TIA !!
  20. I have a previous edition instructor's guide....its title is "American History In Depth Basic...it appears to be almost identical to the current Core 100. Anyway, I am wanting to replace a couple of books....Peace Child and Piercing the Darkness. Even though both these books got rave reviews on Amazon, there were a few voices of dissention. Plus, most reviewers felt Peace Child was a little gory. I was planning on using this core with my ds (he will be 13 by the time we use it). These books are targeted towards adults, not kids. Any suggestions for secular alternatives for these and any other books in this core that tend to have a particular slant would be appreciated. We are fine with a balanced view in the books, and are also fine with learning about all types of religions in a neutral manner...without bias. Thanks, Robin
  21. Does anyone know if there is any secular home ec books/curricula out there. I'd be especially grateful if anyone could offer something for boys. My ds did cooking with 4 other boys for 4-H. They all had a blast. Ds now wants to learn more and do more. I would like to have a curriculum or program, so that we can count it as a school subject. If there isn't such a thing, I'll just teach him on my own. I was just hoping someone might know of something. Please?
  22. I have a friend who is considering homeschooling and wanted my advice on how to get started. She is not a christian and is not interested in things like MFW, TOG, HOD, SL.... which is all the stuff I have used and am familiar with. I tried researching stuff online but I am not really having much luck. Do you guys know of anything out there that is not christian and yet still based on living books? Thanks Amy
