  2. I am in a unique situation. Either in December or in the beginning of the year we will be placing our four children, grades k-7th in a traditional Christian school. I have been homeschooling since the beginning, mostly following the Classical Conversations track along with a smattering of Sonlight, Tapestry of Grace and Veritas Press online courses and their self-paced Omnibus course. Most of these curriculums use living books. My kids have Memory Mastered multiple times and my 7th grader is really doing well this year in Challenge A. Since we have been following a CC model it will be a huge pedagogical switch for me to place my kids in a school that is very traditional in curriculum and methodology. The curriculum they are using mostly is Bob Jones and Abeka for Science and history. What I want to know is multi-facted: 1) How did your kids adjust to a pedagogical difference in teaching? 2) Has anyone afterschooled with Classical Conversations, on all three levels, Foundations, Essentials and Challenge? If so, how did you schedule your afterschooling days? 3) Are there things I should be aware of in regards to the curriculum? I am excited for my kids and the path the Lord has provided for them in regards to being able to go to a quality school. However, I love the CC model and what the classical model of education is all about. I have known for a while that we would follow the model of the trivium that classical education lays out. I am mostly concerned with my oldest who is entering the dialectic stage and will have no one who has been studying like he has been. I have previewed some of their curriculum and I find it lacking in some ways, but in other ways I can see how it will only enhance what we have all ready have done. I would love some insight here of those of you who have gone before. Thanks!
  3. I know world history is a lot to cover in 1 year, but that's the plan. I want to cover the ancients through 1900, leaving 20th century world history for another year. I think I've read every thread here on world history. I've definitely ruled out Notgrass, Omnibus, and Sonlight 200. These are the ones I'm considering, and I can't make up my mind. Can you help push me off the fence? Option 1 Bob Jones World History using BJU tests, but not DVDs Option 2 Glencoe World History (Spielvogel) w/the Glencoe Quizzes & Tests (I currently own both) Option 3 Glencoe World History (Spielvogel) w/Oak Meadow syllabus Option 4 Glencoe World History (Spielvogel) w/Covenant Home "stuff" (what would I need to order?) Thanks for your opinions! Cherie in IL
  4. I am running behind on getting the school year together and I am struggling with a decision. I am used to using Abeka complete curriculum, I have used it for 5 years, but some subjects are just getting too hard for me to teach my kids and I feel they would "get it" better if there was an instructor explaining things. I know that Abeka has a dvd option, but I have heard that it is boring and dull. I have been checking into the BJU hard drive curriculum, and would like to know if anyone hear uses it and what your take is on it? Is it truely everything that I will need for the school year? What other supplies would I have to purchase? Does it keep the kids interested and do the instructors really help? And is the BJU curriculum advanced like the Abeka? Please, any help is very appreciated. Thanks!
  5. I'm considering using Bob Jones Complete 7th grade package with my will be 8th grade son (Joshua) in the fall. This will include the Grammar and Writing program. A few questions; I've read that the writing instructions is really in BJ graded 1-6. My son hasn't had too much writing instruction, so I should add that in, correct? If so I plan to use Easy Classical's writing program. How teacher intensive is the Grammar/Writing. I have five other kiddos to teach, so wondering if the Grammar and Writing can be done mostly on his own. With Exploring Literature, same question; how teacher intensive. I really do need Josh, to be able to do most of his schooling on his own, with me to help of course. My son Josh, works best with textbooks (and lots of free reading to flesh things out). Too many books for one subjects really overwhelms him. How doable is Bob Jones complete package. I can't afford the DVDs :( Thank you!
  6. Can someone compare BJ math with CLE? I don't know much about BJ math. Am interested in grades 2-6. I'm considering using it with a 2nd grader next year and maybe my 3rd grade ds. I currently own CLE 3rd and 4th and at one time owned 1st-2nd, so I know some about CLE. Is it spiral, mastery, workbook or textbook, teacher intensive etc.? I see at Christianbook BJ has 3rd edition not sure if that makes any difference. Appreciate your time :)
  7. I've said a few times this year that I've been disappointed in Foerster's Algebra 2 and that it's been a big struggle. So I've been looking at some other programs. I was all set to buy one of the video programs when I remembered one of my friends (whose son majored in some kind of engineering in college) suggested I look at Bob Jones, because it is rigorous. So I was able to see Bob Jones Alg. 2 in person today and I bought it. I spent a few hours with it this afternoon, working random problems and mapping out the rest of our year. Here are my impressions about some differences between the two books: Bob Jones is more certain than Foerster. I mean, there are a doable number of chapters in the book, and a certain beginning and end, unlike Foerster, where the beginning and end of the Alg. 2 program is what you make of it. This seems like a minor thing, but as far as parental comfort, it's major. The teacher's manual gives a small-medium-large amount of problems to do, sort of like Jacobs does. That's really helpful to know. There is a review for each chapter. There is a test for each chapter. There is a whole lot less guesswork. Bob Jones seems to cover a similar scope as the "advanced algebra" course recommended in the Foerster book (chapters 1-12), and BJU covers a little extra. Linear equations, graphing, functions, inequalities, quadratic formula, determinants, radicals, exponents, complex numbers, rational expressions and equations, two chapters on trigonometry, inverse functions and logarithms, probability and statistics, and analytic geometry, including conic sections. Matrices are handled really nicely, I thought. They are spread out all over the book so that the student can either tackle them all together or in smaller bite-sized pieces. I think Bob Jones probably does a better job integrating the different topics to enhance understanding. Foerster has more proofs at first, but Bob Jones incorporates proofs later in the book. Both are similarly laid out. One of the things I liked best about Foerster Algebra 1 is the way the chapters are arranged. The student is first reminded of something he already knows, then each section in the chapter builds a little more on that basic concept. The last section in the chapter is word problems to apply the concepts learned. There are probably an equal number of examples in the Bob Jones and Foerster books. Both give a commentary alongside the problem being worked, explaining what is happening in each step. I think Bob Jones is a laid out a little bit better. The examples are set apart from the text in a clearer way, even though the definitions in Foerster are set apart from the text in (arguably) a clearer way. The clear advantage of the Foerster book is the teacher's edition. A small version of the page is visible in the teacher's guide, and expanded solutions are in the wide margins, sort of like A Beka and Rod & Staff (and SRA Explorations and Applications, if you used that one). The answers are given stepwise. For example, if a student is supposed to do cancellations in a problem, they appear in the teacher's guide. Meanwhile, the simple answers are written in such a way that it's easy to grade. This is a help that a mathematician mom might not appreciate as much as the rest of us, but it will be a tremendous help to me. Another clear advantage of the Bob Jones text, to me, is the tests. So these programs are extremely similar. The Bob Jones seemed more in line with Foerster than the video programs that I was looking at. Bob Jones does have a video program to go along with their math texts, which I might look into next year for pre-cal. They're not as flashy as Thinkwell or Chalkdust, but the sample I saw moved slowly enough that a struggling student could actually follow. Thinkwell lectures were very entertaining, I thought, and helpful as long as a student already knew the material, but the professor moved too quickly, I thought, for a student learning material for the first time (and the textbook was vastly inferior to either Foerster or Bob Jones). Lastly, there's the religion issue of Bob Jones. As a Catholic I was hesitant to put any money into any Bob Jones materials at all because of their views, but I decided to look past that. There are scripture references in the text, but they don't frequently make it to the problem sets. I don't think this is as much of an issue as it was in earlier grades using A Beka math (especially 4th grade A Beka math). The section introductions are where the religion references are, and it would be fairly simple to look past them. I don't know how the video lectures would be in that regard.
