  1. 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?
  2. I have a child that will be entering Challenge A in the fall of 2018. It's new to our campus, so all uncharted territory. I have some questions, but would like to ask them anonymously (hence, why I'm asking here, instead of my CC group). 1- I have read online that some families choose to opt out of Latin. If we choose to do this, how exactly do you opt out? For example, if your Challenge A student is on campus one day a week from 9:00-3:30, how do they omit one subject? I can see how this would be possible if Latin was offered at the very end of the day, then you could just pick your child up early. Which brings me to my next question..... 2- For those who have had a child in Challenge A, or tutored.....what is the 9:00-3:30 on "class day" schedule in your area? I'm hoping someone can give me a break down of how time is spent during that one day a week students spend with their tutor. Thank for your time!!!!
  3. I need to rant a bit here. Maybe you can help me process?? We jumped back in to Classical Conversations almost a year ago (week 12 of cycle 2) and joined a new group that started in my home town this school year for cycle 3. The Foundations program that I loved so much last year seems to me to be lacking in depth of information this year. I feel as if I need to add more depth to the memory work for my 5th grader but with the load that we are taking on with Essentials, where does one find the time? Also, my husband was looking through the EEL work we have been doing and thinks that the workload is absolutely ridiculous, especially for a 5th grade boy. IEW seems to be a good program for writing and the math drill seems that it is good but I just don't know how much more of this speeding through like a freight train I can take! It's only week 5! I am not sure we will continue with CC next year but we may have no other choice due to a lack of co-op options/homeschool support groups that are academically rich for my son's age. Has anyone else had this problem? How did you solve it? I know that the program is to prepare for the Challenge program but to be honest I'm not sure I agree or am sold on their philosophy. CC states that their Challenge students graduate with higher scores (insinuating that others don't) however my oldest son is now a junior in college and did not have a CC/Classical education and is doing well at his private college. I feel as if I'm in between a rock and a hard place. What does one do when feeling this way???
  4. Hey, just jumping up to the high school board. A little scary. :001_smile: (Haven't figured out avators and signature lines yet. ) Anyway, we've been doing MP Latina Christiana II and will move on to FF II after that....but I have a son (currently 5th) who is not crazy about grammar or language study in general, so Latin is his least favorite subject, with grammar and writing right on par in his dislike. We did JAG this last year and he did GREAT with it - I also used AG in full with my 7th grade daughter who loves language study. Was planning to use it with him next year, but we're considering the CC Essentials program since we could use the camraderie and IEW writing program. Think he'd do better with some positive peer pressure. I know there is some debate about whether Latin grammar teaches the English grammar or vice versa, but my son did much better in his Latin this year after working through the JAG - he seemed to understand it more clearly. So I thought that what appears to be the overwhelming amount of info in CC Essentials EEL might be benficial to us in our Latin studies. But honestly, I think the EEL is kind of....over the top. I think the Charlotte Mason part of me just rebels against needing to spend more time on things that I can't tell are worthwhile, and are (frankly) boring and convoluted. (Honestly, 112 model sentences to memorize? To what end? I'm not judging as much as genuinely asking....) I thought the AG was somewhat interesting and my kids actually didn't mind and liked it. I had no trouble teaching it. Was pretty hands off, really. But the EEL seems more thorough and with more formal terminology. And more teacher/time intensive. So my question: we're planning to move on eventually into Henle or Wheelock Latin - will the CC EEL help us immensely in our First Forms and Henle/Wheelock study? We'll do it if it going to help....or if you ahve another English grammar suggestion that would be helpful, I'd take that too! Thanks! DD 13 DS 11 DD 8 DD 6 DS 20 months
  5. 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!
  6. Hello to ALL! This is my first ever post, so I'm coming out from lurking in the shadows! =) Through my lurking, I've discovered MCT here about two years ago. I find mixed reviews. Again, I don't want to invest in a system only to discover it doesn't work for us. Would it be too much to do MCT and IEW together? How long does it take at the beginner level of MCT to do? Any other helpful advice/tips that I'm not thinking to question? My ds memorizes pretty well, but is very active. I'm thinking of using MCT to prepare my son for CC Essentials? Do you think it would be too much or that parts of it would be great to use instead of the whole thing? Thanks for the input and help! This forum is such a blessing! =) Hugs!
  7. Does anyone here have any idea what level of Rod & Staff to start with a 7th grader (thinking ahead about next fall) who has completed 3 years of Classical Conversations' Essentials of the English Language? TWTM says that if you haven't done Rod & Staff in the past, then start at Grade 5. But I'm thinking that may be going back too far. It's not like she's not had any english grammar! Just wondering if anyone has ever been in the exact same boat. Essentials is pretty intense. But she will need more english grammar going forward. Thanks.
  8. Is anyone else in the same boat as me? My dd will finish up her third and last year of Classical Conversations's Essentials of English Grammar program this year. If so, what have you used for 7th grade grammar?
  9. Hi Everyone, I wanted to see if we could get a Classical Conversations group going on here, so here's the group address: tell me if there's a better way to let people know. http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forum...php?groupid=83 Carrie:-)
  10. Hi There, I'm wanting to know if anyone has comparisons of the definitions of on the cd that you can purchase from WTM, Shurley Grammar's Definition and maybe how they work/don't work with the definition that Leigh Bortins uses in her EEL curriculum. I'd love it if the definitions in EEL coincide with either Shurley Grammar or the WTM's. Since I don't have anything except for EEL, I can't compare...Has anyone already done the work for me? :-) Carrie:-)
