We have decided to leave Classical Conversations and go back to homeschooling on our own this next school year. My son is 11, going in to 6th grade and has completed one year of the CC Essentials program. We actively participated and he did well for the most part, however the rush of the program stresses both of us. I am looking to use Rod & Staff English but having a hard time figuring out which book to choose. Do I choose book 4, 5 or 6 after using CC's Essentials of the English Language? Can anyone here help me?

Hi all, I have an old copy of Warriner's English & Composition course 4 and the answer key from Seton. I really like Warriner's and was looking around wondering if I could build the rest of the set. Does anyone know if Holt Traditions newer publications are the same? Or have they been changed? http://www.hmhco.com/search?segment=All;mm=all;q=warriner's It's not clear if the editions have been changed or abridged. But there are online editions! http://www.hmhco.com/shop/k12/Holt-Traditions-Warriners-Handbook/9780554002231 I've written the company but does anyone know if these materials are available to homeschoolers?
Hello, I am putting together a class for my 9th grader (and some others) for next year to cover the core and standards of WA ELA. I am doing this though from a science perspective so that my student will in fact learn and engage with the course. I am combining Botany and Mythology together to meet said standards required. I am looking for suggestions or resources that are not costly that will help with this process. I have a microscope and a Intro to botany book on its way. The two areas separately are easy enough to teach, but putting them together is where I am having some questions. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
Hi all; I need your help please! I'm going around and around and around in circles trying to figure out what my daughter's english sequence will be for high school. I'm feeling fairly pathetic right now. Here's some background: My dd loves creative writing and is finishing up the One Year Adventure Novel. I think she's behind in expository writing She's not done any real sentence diagramming before I am looking for her writing to be taught in a live class (online) and graded by the teacher My dd is college bound and science focused (but I want to keep a good focus on english as I think she has some aptitude in there) We'd appreciate curriculum that is secular-friendly Here's what I have come up with so far. Thoughts? Suggestions? Am I doing this all wrong? As far as I can tell there seems to be 4 sections to Language Arts. - WRITING: My dd loves the Bravewriter classes but I believe they only have one-off classes and not full semesters or a full year comprehensive class. 9th grade: IEW (I read somewhere a recommendation it's good to start here to get the structure down but it gets repetitive and good to move on after the first year. My dd would not do well with repetitiveness but needs help on getting the structure down.In October take: Bravewriter "Writing the Short Story" to prepare for the National Novel Writing Month in November. 10th grade: Well Trained Mind - Preparation for Rhetoric Writing 11th grade: Well Trained Mind - Rhetoric I 12th grade: Well Trained Mind - Rhetoric II - GRAMMAR: 9th grade: http://www.english-grammar-revolution.com/daily-diagrams.html (my son does MCT Grammar Town but not sure my dd would find it interesting enough to hold her attention.) or Analytical Grammar: https://www.analyticalgrammar.com/our-products/analytical-grammar/ - VOCABULARY: We're going to try http://membean.com this year and if it goes well, continue with it for the 4 years. - LITERATURE ANALYSIS: I'm not sure! Does anyone know of good, online discussion literature analysis classes? Is literature analysis a combination of reading comprehension, understanding literary devices and figurative language and reading into deeper meanings? On my current list to consider is (including non-online live classes because I haven't found anything that is ongoing): Holt Mcdougall Literature Student and Teacher books: â€‹https://www.amazon.com/Holt-McDougal-Literature-Student-Grade/dp/0547618395/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1467320584&sr=8-3&keywords=McDougal+Language+of+Literature%3A+Teacher%27s+Edition+Grade+9 I REALLY like LitCharts: http://www.litcharts.com but not sure if that is enough to suffice for literature analysis? ESC Novel Units: http://www.ecslearningsystems.com/webstore/store/showproductslist.asp?cmsAbout=1&idcategory=107& Skills for Literary Analysis: http://cathyduffyreviews.com/homeschool-reviews-core-curricula/phonics-reading/readers-literature/readers-literature-grades-9-12/skills-for-literary-analysis Teaching the Classics: http://cathyduffyreviews.com/homeschool-reviews-core-curricula/phonics-reading/readers-literature/readers-literature-grades-1-8/teaching-the-classics-a-socratic-method-for-literary-education-and-ready-readers (this sounds like the way to go but requires high involvement from the parent) Thank you!
I know this has been discussed before, so if anyone can direct me to a thread where it has been hashed out, that would be most welcome. I have 9th grade (yikes!) mostly planned, in concept: Geometry Biology Integrated Health & Fitness (OM) Spanish 2 But I'm not exactly sure how to manage credits for English and History. What I have planned feels like 3 distinct things, although each might not be a whole credit: English: Rhetoric & Composition English: Ancient Literature Ancient History Or, it could be 2 things, which is actually how many credits worth of work I want to do: Great Books - Ancient History & Literature - more than one credit's worth of work? English: Rhetoric & Composition - less than one credit's worth of work? How have people handled Great Books study, integrating English Lit and History? On the transcript? In practice? Do you count hours and then figure it out at the end? Do they spend equal amounts of time in the "english" and "history" pieces? Do you separate out the composition/rhetoric piece, or is it built in? I'd love to read how different people have handled this, both how you've actually done it, and how you have transcripted it. ETA: I should mention that creative writing is my dd's passion, so she will be doing that on her own time for sure, and it could easily be counted as an elective credit or packaged up with other writing stuff into a full English/Writing credit. I was trying to keep it down to 6 credits, though, to leave plenty of time for extracurricular writing and the other time consuming activities in which dd participates - theater and horseback riding.
