  1. OK, please bear with me as this is a long story but I am hoping someone out there has had a similar experience. This past school year, my 9th grader took a physics class at our co-op. Why physics in 9th grade? Well, for many reasons but the main one was that it was supposed to be conceptual physics. This class was advertised as a dual class for both conceptual AND honors being taught at the same time. We have another teacher at the co-op who does this quite successfully so I thought it would be ok. Well, as you have probably guessed from my title, it ended up being only an honors course. The honors kids needed to have a basic understanding of trigonometry. My son isn't super strong in math so he was in Algebra I at the same time. So obviously, he did not have a basic understanding of trigonometry. Against my better judgment, he stayed in the class. Kudos to him, he pushed through, worked hard and made a B as his final grade. It was difficult but he did it. So here comes my question. I'm writing up his course descriptions for the year so I am not panicking his senior year trying to write up 4 years worth of school. Do I say something in the course description that this was way above his skill level yet he persevered? I think it will look odd that he took Algebra I and Honors Physics the same year so I wonder if I need to add an explanation. He made an A in Algebra I so at least his math and science grades for 9th grade are balanced. Am I over thinking this (as usual?)
  2. hi friends - two years ago i did this successfully. can i remember now how? no, i cannot. on the university of california applications there are two additional places for info. in the academic history one, i can upload either the course descriptions or the school profile. which? the second one is for an additional essay i think, but i could use it for the other of the two. suggestions? experience? help?
  3. I don't want to send more paperwork than is required or requested. However, I was wondering if sending course descriptions anyway to some competitive schools may make a difference in scholarship awards. Any thoughts? What did you do?
  4. I am new at all of this, and I have searched everywhere for an example of what I am looking for, but haven't found it anywhere. My son took an online film making class this past year, but he also took a 10 week film class at co-op (not really a class, but together the kids made a movie), read some film making books, took an intro to screenwriting course online, etc. How do I write the class description to include all of that? Or in general, what do other moms do when their kids utilize online courses (that maybe wouldn't equal a credit on their own, but paired with other things, do)? How do you explain it the the class descriptions? Thanks for any help!
  5. Well, here it goes. TRANSCRIPTS. I'm in 11th grade, and horribly so, as I have yet to construct a transcript/course descriptions for 9th, 10th, and 11th grades. Nothing. Nada. I've only started recording grades in 10th, so let's just say everything is a bit frazzled. Where could I start? What are some recommended formats? I'm currently taking AP Euro History, AP Literature (both with PA Homeschoolers), Psychology, Algebra II, German II, and an elective of film editing with Premiere CS6. Remember, this is a student who's considering majoring in Creative Writing or Comparative Literature or Germanic Studies at colleges such as Northwestern and UC Berkeley - even Columbia. If you all could point to a path, send a message in the sky, hand me some directions, something, I will be eternally grateful. Thank you! :D
  6. For those of you who submitted course descriptions (Required by Chapel Hill) with you common ap, which section did you submit them under? I see two possibilities: 1. As an addendum to the School Profile or 2. In the same file as the transcript so the file would include: 1 page transcript, outside documentation/grade reports from PA homeschoolers etc to support the transcript and then 3 my 7 page course description. I'm torn....will those familiar with the common app please give me your opinions? Thanks! Nancy
  7. I'm in the process of writing course descriptions. I am stuck at whether or not to include a short instructor bio. This is my basic format for each course: Title Instructor Description Materials I need advice about whether or not I should include a short bio after the instructors' names and credentials.
  8. Dear wise ones, DS11 is only going into 6th but I have started lurking on this board in anticipation of high school (it all goes by so fast - weren't we doing FIAR a moment ago?) I would like to practice now writing clear course descriptions so I can do it well when it counts. Would anyone be willing to share a couple that they have written? Thanks so much, Linders
  9. This is a statement on our local college's website that describes what additional info a homeschool child would need to submit for consideration. Can anyone explain what these mean more simply or if you have done this before would you be willing to send me a sample of what this should look like- I'm more visual! Thanks so much. My son is 8th grade, but wants to go into mechanical engineering and I want to make sure I do this really, really well! Tiffany Home Schooled Applicants UMBC welcomes home-schooled applicants. In addition to the above admissions materials, home-schooled applicants should submit curriculum vitae describing course content, instructional materials and an evaluation of the student’s work.
  10. I am in the process of writing course descriptions for my 9th grader. They are not hard, I hope I am doing them right :001_huh:, but they are tedious. How much information do you include? I have been cutting and copying from different websites and sources and then changing the information around. I am also writing some in my own words. My concern is that when, and if, some college 2-3 years down the road asks for the information, I will have it ready and waiting. Plus, it is wonderful to see what and how much information we are covering. That said, the process is still tedious and a little boring.
  11. I just spent the day writing 25 course descriptions. I have never detested anything about homeschooling as much as I have this! Absolute and total yuck!!
  12. How important is it to put the dates of classes on a transcript? The way we homeschool, the dates are going to look crazy. For example, right now we're doing 10th grade history, 11th grade science and English, 11th grade math (algebra II) but only partly completed 10th grade math (geometry) which we will go back and finish after algabra II is done. Algebra I took us 2 1/2 years to get through (we started in 8th grade), but it looks like ancient history will only take about 6 months. As soon as we finish one course, we go right into the next course in that content area. So when we finish ancient history next month, we will start American history the next day. We homeschool year round. We don't take scheduled breaks, though we do take procrastination breaks. I believe in letting my son learn at his own pace, which is much faster in some subjects than others. In short, if I put dates on the transcript, it will look really weird. I'd rather just put grade levels. What do you think?
  13. Is there a recommended order in which the courses should be listed (by grade, by subject, alphabetically, by order of importance (to you) based on the student's planned college major? I appreciate your thoughts as I polish things up for submission. :)
  14. I can't figure out what to say...algebra - trig. It's just not that exciting! Do I need course descriptions for math courses? TIA
  15. My dd took a photography course for her 9th grade year. She used Oak Meadow's Introduction to Photography which is just a semester course but she also edits photos online and has countless hours built up doing that. Would that constitute a full year's credit in your opinion? If so, should I just title the course with one title or break it up into 1/2 credits with different titles like: Introduction to Photography/Digital Photography? Any good advice? Thanks :)
  16. .....what do you name them? Do you just put Bible 9, 10, 11 and 12 or do you have a name for each course? We are going to do the Trail Guide to Bible Geography so I thought under the Subject Bible that I'd list that as a course as "Bible Geography."
  17. My eldest child is entering 9th grade in the Fall and I am attempting to write course descriptions that would end up in his school district "file". I would like to write the course descriptions well enough to be able to include in a college "resume." Help - does anyone have some good samples for me to follow or a great website? I'm looking to start.... with courses he's already finished like .... Jacob's Algebra Jacob's Geometry Latina Christiana I and II Intro To Chemistry Intro to Biology Story of the World (all 4 volumes) Thanks, Myra
  18. I was curious what others have discovered when applying to colleges. Do they want Course Descriptions? Did you include it just in case?
  19. Those would be the course descriptions that you included with transcripts for college applications -- Interested in wording, types of things included, etc. I am not the most creative person, and would really benefit from seeing how others worded things. Thanks --
