I've been really relieved and grateful to find that the AP Teacher Community has been pretty inclusive about letting me (homeschooling mom of 6) join the various discussion and resource boards, but haven't heard anything back from AP Biology (and received a hard no from the FB affiliated pages). I'm curious if anyone has encountered anything similar and if you have any great resources that you recommend. We have a 14 year old son who really loves science and already passed the AP Bio exam, but I'm wanting to make the curriculum a bit more interactive for our daughter as she isn't as in love with Science as he is (inhales literature and History, though!). Thank you! I've been so impressed with all of the information I've been able to find on here!
New possible homeschooler mom and I was wondering how to annual assessment works? I have a teenager in the 10th grade. I saw somewhere that you can take it online but I wasn’t sure if that was allowed or even actually accredited. And if I need a certified teacher, where do you find one to administer the test?
I currently have a 16 year old daughter that has missed over 40 days of school due to medical reasons. Because of this she has pushed for online school. Unfortunately I’m lost and concerned. We live in New York which has high homeschooling laws/regulations and I’m not sure how to fulfill them if my daughter decides to do online school. So I’m wondering if there are any other moms that have a online student in New York? I would personally love your help on how to write an IHIP for an online student or if things are done differently for children going to online school. Sincerely, A lost mother ：）
My son is 9 and entering third grade at a public school in Ohio. During the second grade year we had him privately tested and learned that he is dyslexic. I began using the Barton system almost immediately and have seen really great results with the program, however doing at least two hours of Barton Tutoring per week plus the normal homework he receives at school was very challenging last year. He was tired and burnt out, and I noticed many times that the instruction he was receiving at school would contradict the instruction he was receiving from me regarding Barton, which then left him confused. I am unhappy with the reading/intervention program that he is receiving at school and would love to be able to pull him out of school during the reading portion of his day and have him complete that requirement by using the Barton system at home with me. Is this possible? I love our school district and would like for him to continue to be a part of the rest of the school day. Can anyone give me any guidance regarding whether or not this is possible? I want to make sure I fully research my options and know what's legally possible before approaching the school. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
