Have you heard of BasisEd? one of the top 5 schools system in the country. So when in the news some school like that comes to light I usually ask myself what are they doing right that I can use in my homeschool... There are many things, but one thing jumped out at me... they start their AP exams in 8th grade with the US History AP. By the time they take the May test they have covered US History for many years, and are prepared. By graduation they have taken 9 to 11 AP exams. They spend their Senior Year doing a Thesis, or a project that of course needs to be aproved. My kids are in elementary school. so why am I still thinking about AP tests? If I set my eyes on the US History AP, then I have a few years to drill the content into my kids and then let them try it. What are yourt thoughts with mimiking succesful "schools" or with AP tests early on? If you have taken AP courses, how have you prepared your student? Thanks Mrs Q
Could someone give me any feedback about AP Geography course with PA Homeschoolers, especially the workload that comes with it and the teacher's involvement? My daughter will be 15 and it would be her first year taking AP courses. She will also be taking AP Psychology, which she really wants to do, but I am wondering if it would be wise to add another AP course. She works hard if she is interested in the subject or if she really likes the teacher. At this point she is cautiously (or somewhat) interested in the subject and I am not sure how much of the teacher's feedback they will be getting, being that it is an asynchronous class. I think of the Geography as more of an exposure class that would introduce her to the new concepts, and as a bonus, would serve as another outlet for practicing her writing, in somewhat different setting other than her English class. Her workload maybe a bit heavy next year: Latin 2 with Lone Pine Algebra 2 with WHA AP Psychology with PAH Biology with WTMA Essay class with the local teacher Lit. possibly with Center for Lit. Still thinking what to do about History Thank you so much for any feedback on this class!!
