  1. Hello, I apologize if this has been covered here already. I couldn't find anything when I searched the older threads. I have family in Lebanon (which, if you have heard all the news lately, is really in crisis) and they are facing not being able to get enough gas to drive the kids to school, if it will even be open at all. Of course, they called their American cousin who is doing that crazy homeschooling thing over there and asked for help. Normally, I have no problem helping folks get started here in my state, but they need an accredited school-at-home in case their teens want to attend a European university later. They have an electric generator and internet, so they will be able to do online streaming. I am also unsure whether I can safely send the necessary books to them, as imports are being seized randomly be whoever and having a cousin fly into Beirut with a giant box of boxes might not be feasible either. So suggestions that are completely online are welcome. They do have the ability to have materials printed fairly easily, so options that offer digital .pdfs of the resources would be ok as well. They are able to afford a good program. The children are 16 and 13. So highschool level is the aim. I know Calvert is a fairly well respected option, but I'd like to steer them towards a Christian classical program if I can. (Their American private school there is an elite school and they need rigorous academic coursework.) Suggestions? Thank you very much in advance. Who knows, we might jump start a Lebanese home school movement. 😉
  2. Hi! I'm new here. :) My 8th grade daughter is reading The History of the Medieval World this year. I would love to integrate some appropriate historical fiction and non-fiction literature into her school year, much like the WTM elementary level history booklists. Am I missing a WTM suggestion list anywhere? Thanks. I tried searching this forum, but came up empty. :)
  3. Is it feasible to combine students of different ages when the oldest reaches high school? I'm all for the independence that my oldest has (she is a VERY good student), but she feels isolated doing everything on her own. Can it still work to combine history, science, and other subjects in family-style learning in the high school years? // I'd appreciate all feedback -- for the positive or negative. Also any suggestions of how (if it's possible) to make it work well. My daughter will start high school this summer. Amber :)

  6. Has anyone used the textbook America: A Narrative History? I did a search in the forum and it didn't pop up anywhere. It looks to be a high school/college textbook. On the publisher's website, they offer many resources in study guides, quizzes, etc. but you have to be part of a school to order. Ugh. Looks like a great American history textbook but I don't think I realistically have time to create study guides, quizzes, discussion questions, etc. Would love, love, love if anyone has recommendations for this book or one like it. I really wish Susan Wise Bauer would write an American history book for high school. We adored her History of the Ancient World.
  7. Just starting to lay out our high school plan and wondering if there are current thoughts or ideas on the online or software packages available. Is Edu-Track still a useful program? What about Donna Young and her planners/programs? are they still relevant and applicable? any new programs or products that folks have tried and liked? Thanks in Advance!! Pam
  8. I have been immersing myself in all the posted topics regarding Language Arts for high school on the High School boards and have reviewed the WTM (not 4th edition because I don't own it) as well as my copy of Teaching the Trivium for guidelines about what to do as I plan my oldest DS's 4 yrs of high school. And yes, I've read Ruth's epic post . . . . My head is swimming. Please offer help if you can wade through my post! I'm most thankful for anyone to jump in here and give advice! I hate to be a "needy" mom on here, but I need some shoulders to lean on from those of you who have gone before me and have accumulated invaluable experience and perspective. Here's some background that might help you as you advise. As an elementary and middle school student, he has completed the following: IEW SWI-A plus some of the Theme-based books WWE1-4 WWS 1-2 Lively Art of Writing (LAW) IEW unit VIII of TWSS MCT: Island, Town, CE,1 ML1, WWW, 4practice, R&S Grade 8 Killgallon SCES & SCMS VCR A World of Poetry (CAP) Fallacy Detective Art of Argument Discovery of Deduction He is currently enrolled in a Humanities local tutorial class (going into his 3rd year) which teaches cohesively (as one would expect) wonderful literature, challenging presentations/ projects and writing assignments based on the Progym, and deep study of history. He is a strong student in this class and writes well, thinks well, and loves all of it. I just don't know that it is enough actual writing to call it an entire credit hour. Thus . . . my search for something to just fill out and ensure everything is in place. How to navigate the high school years' English/Lit/Speech credits without overloading him . . . . (we'll have 2 others after him . . . just fyi) On my bookshelf (and/or written in my accumulated notes) for the high school years are the following resources: Elements of Style On Writing Well On Speaking Well A Rulebook for Arguments + Wkbk Intermediate Logic (Nance) Hands on Essays New Oxford Guide to Writing The Elements of Rhetoric VCR level D & E Figures of Speech (Quinn) How to Read Lit Like a Prof They Say, I Say How to Read a Book Aristotle Rhetoric On my radar but I have no idea whether they are needed or just duplicates / redundancies of what I own are the following: LTOW (it seems he would be better suited to level 2 but you're supposed to start at level 1 :( ) IEW SICC C or Theme Based level C or SWI-C --> i get conflicting opinions about which would be best given our trail up to this point IEW WTTW MCT ML3 & WWW2 MP's CC <-- i think he could jump in at book 6 and continue through 8, even though I know you're supposed to go from ground up Rhetoric Alive 1 Writing Strands 7 plus Writing Exposition Write Foundation level 2 or 3 EIW level 10 What is my problem, then, you ask? Sequencing this and making it not too robust but just enough to fill out the need for High School level writing instruction/English credits in light of what he has done and what he will need to be able to do. We are just on the brink of 9th grade studies (we school on and off all year long). What order could I use for the books sitting on my self? WHat would be missing, or would I need nothing from the radar list? {Oh, and we really cannot do online classes because we're on satellite internet} I talked with the gal from LTOW (circe) and she recommended he go quickly through LTOW1 and then roll into LTOW2 but this seems so expensive. And I cannot tell really whether that is the right kind of writing instruction for him, or whether that is unnecessary. It seems that LTOW is a thinking program, not a writing skills program. I need something that is just bare bones practice in writing but can be flexible to fit in with the sometimes hefty loads of writing he does in his Humanities class. I need something that is nuts and bolts, ongoing, not overwhelming, exposes him to all the different types of essay writing he needs to be able to do. Also, in which order should I do the rhetoric books I currently own? Also, how do I assign credit hours for the Rhetoric studies. I am so confused because WTM talks about Rhetoric being the replacement for Logic . . . but the Rulebook for Arguments and the New Oxford Guide are more like nuts and bolts to writing out his arguments, whereas the Intermediate Logic curriculum is all about mastering the propositions. (Would I do Intermediate Logic prior to Rulebook for Arguments or concurrently?) Do I give an elective credit for Intermediate Logic? What do I call it? I know I call it "Speech" when we do a Rhetoric class for elective credit, right? I am drawn to the official-ness of the Progym model (as it is called out in LTOW, CC, CAP), but came to it late in my schooling with him, so he hasn't had official instruction in that. DD2 and DS3 are getting that with CAP's Wr&Rh. We have generally always been a mesh of WTM and Charlotte Mason . . . . I'm beginning to see the fruit of all of it in DS1. . . .but I want to finish strong during these last four years, bringing to completion what I began with such fervor at the beginning.
  9. Hi, I'm Adam Boyd, I work at the American Chemical Society, specifically in the Education Division, which developed inquiryinaction.org and middleschoolchemistry.com. I hope it's OK to do so, but I just wanted to mention that we finished a free online resource for teaching high school chemistry that uses lab investigations, student reading, demos, and multimedia to teach the big ideas about energy. As always, all of the content is available for free at highschoolenergy.acs.org. I hope this is helpful for a few people!
  10. I have a question...can anyone help? If my child just started /or started over her high school requirements - starting in the "11th grade"...how could/would she complete 4 years in two? I hope I am making sense? This girl needs to complete ALL her required high school requirments starting in the 11th grade...she is VERY behind!!!!!!!
  11. Hi There, I'm just wondering what you all are doing... if you don't have Challenge available? It's a bit early... but we have until the summer to decide. My daughter will be in 7th... and she doesn't need another year of F/E. Thanks! Carrie
  12. Hi There, So, I'm totally covered until 7th grade. BUT, then I'm really nervous; I was thinking that we would do Classical Conversations for 7th-12th. I already know that we would need to add some lessons in different areas to complete what I want her to know by the end of High School, but now I'm not even sure that we'll have a complete Challenge program for quite a few years. I'm not concerned about Math, so it's all the rest that I'm thinking about. Mostly history and subjects that it's nice to have a group for. I'd love to hear any programs that seem to flow nicely from 7th-at least 10th, but preferably 12th. We are a Christian family, but I am open to looking at any curriculum. I don't really want to do a pop in for what subjects you want to take method. I really want a 1-2 day a week program. Anyone have a program (or belong to something) they think is great? Thanks! Carrie :bigear:
  13. Who's used this? Did you take the whole 10-12 wks to do this, or did you kinda cram at all? I'm thinking of purchasing this for our homeschool group to view before we start classes. Has anyone used it in a group setting? Hints?? Would you say it's ok for junior high? Carrie:-)
