  1. Does there exist anywhere a correlation between the chapters of HO Volume 2 and the OUP books? I know there are not that many middle ages books but I am hoping someone perhaps has already done this work. TIA!!!!
  2. We are nearly finished with K12 Human Odyssey Vol. 1, which we've liked a lot. I would like to start getting prepared for Vol. 2. Anyone have a list of supplemental readings?
  3. I have Writing with Skill, History Odyssey Ancients Level 2, and CHOLLA Ancients for Logic Stage for my 5th grade DD. I like what each program has to offer. I like being able to tie in literature with history. What concerns me is all the writing, so I'm trying to decide what to exclude from one or more of the programs, and hope that others can share what you've done. For WWS, I'm considering that as DD's main text for writing, outlining and summaries. That leaves me wondering how much outlining and summary writing I should have DD complete in the other two programs. Rather than use TSOM, I've purchased the K12 Human Odyssey. I'm going to match up the Human Odyssey with SOTW in the CHOLLA lessons, and see where they would match up with History Odyssey. I'm not going to have DD do the History Pockets. I did purchase the History Odyssey timeline and stickers, as DD is interested in doing those, and she will also do the mapwork. For CHOLLA I like that there are vocabulary words so I want to figure out how to incorporate those into our schedule. I don't think we'll do the dictation, and I'm thinking about having her do some of the book summary questions, but not write book summaries. I'd love to hear how others have used these programs together. Thank you!
  4. Hi! I am interested in this text written for high schoolers but I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas? From what I can tell they have a 3 book set for middle grades and a 1 book covering all of world history for high school. Right?
  5. I'm looking through my K12 Human Odyssey book 1 wondering if someone has already lined it up with SOTW 1. I've only skimmed through HO so far, but it's chronology seems to be quite different from SOTW. I was hoping to match parts & pieces of HO to SOTW chapters, but after looking at it I think that might break the logical flow of the book too much, yes? I use SOTW as scheduled in BP, and wanted to add readings from K12 HO for my logic stage child. Is this possible without completely mutilating it beyond usefulness?
  6. I'm finally starting to work on my history curriculum for next year. I've decided to move away from SOTW with my rising 7th grader. I will be using the first Human Odyssey book. My question is can I also use this text for my rising 4th grader? He listened in to ancients when he was in kindergarten. I'd like to move on with him as well. I'm ordering a copy of HO from Amazon today. But, I'd like some input from others who have used this book to see if I can adapt it for use in 4th grade. Thanks!
  7. I plan on using SOTW with AG for my younger kiddos and K12 Human Odyssey with my 7th dd next year. I found a schedule that puts these together, but my question is... other than having her read the chapters, what do I have her do? Is the student guide worth the money? Has anyone made up chapter review questions? Do you have them write up overviews of the chapters? Reports? Incorporate it into your writing curriculum? Or do you just have them read it? I like the look of HO k12, just not sure which direction I want to take it. So those of you who use it - what does it look like at your house? I can't wait to hear your answers!
  8. Can anyone help me decide? My dd will be in 5th next year, and right now, for history, I'm leaning towards either starting History Odyssey OR doing 2 years of History of US and then going into K12 Human Odyssey for 7th through 9th. Here a few things about our situation: -We need secular materials. -Dd is not a strong reader or writer yet. We're working on it, but I will be reading a lot of the history aloud to her. -I need direction. I don't have time for a lot of teacher prep and planning. History Odyssey tells you step by step what to do. But I think with K12, you only get the textbook (for $99!). Is there any teacher instruction included? -Would like to do history 2-3x/week. -In either program, is there enough US history included, or do you find that you need to supplement? Thank you for any help/advice/opnions! ETA: I realized that I have asked this question before, but if anyone new would like to share their opinion, I would love to hear it.
  9. I am trying to decide between these 2 programs, but I can't really get a good feel for the difference between them. I can't see samples of the student and teacher pages for the K12 program. I want to combine History, Literature (including beginning literary analysis) and writing. I liked the mapwork in The Story of the World AG as well as the outlining , narration, and comprehension questions that made my job as a teacher much easier. Can anyone give me an idea of what the K12 program using the TG and Student pages would be like? Also, does the online component of K12 really add a lot to the curriculum to be worth the extra $30/month? I just don't know what to do.:confused:
  10. First of all, my apologies for this being so long and drawn out. I have 3 dc. DS 7th, dd 5th, and dd 1st. We came into WTM late beginning 3 years ago when my ds was in 4th. We started with SOTW 1. This past school year, we finished SOTW 3 in May. I had plans to do SOTW 4 this next school year with my two oldest. However, now that my youngest dd is ready for the cycle, I have been toying with the idea of returning to Ancients both because of the mature content in SOTW 4 as well as then both dd's will be in the right place of the WTM cycle. In order to do that I had the bright idea that I could just read SOTW 4 to us this summer as a story without the additional outlining, etc. so that we had been exposed atleast to the Modern stuff. Then we would be ready for Ancients in the fall. I already own a SOTW 1 (I need to get pdfs of the student pages). And then I read about K12 Human Odyssey and ordered all 3 books because it sounded so wonderful. So my plan was to use SOTW 1 with my 5th and 1st, requiring outlining from KF from my 5th and additional reading. Younger dd could do coloring pages and maps. My older ds would read K12 Human Odyssey Prehistory on his own. He could listen to SOTW 1 for fun if he wanted. I also have a HO student workbook that goes with the text book. But I still haven't decided whether I want ds to read this book and outline from KF or use student workbook from HO and no outlining (since we have a pretty intensive writing curriculum with CW Homer B). Anyway, this was my plan until now..... and here it is... the summer break is almost over and we haven't finished SOTW 4! School starts back Aug 22 and we are only on Ch. 10 of SOTW 4. Also, I have found this book is more difficult to "listen" to than the others. Did anyone else have that experience? I'm thinking that my older kids might actually benefit from the additional outlining in KF to cement all the information in SOTW as well as just plain reading SOTW 4 themselves, rather than me reading it aloud. (This would mean either I need to buy another book or they share?). The problem is I REALLY want to do Ancients! I REALLY want my ds to read K12 HO. It looks so good. i actually have all 3 volumes so he could begin reading them each year and then get to Modern his 9th grade year. Or perhaps he could read them all in two years? I dunno. But then he wouldn't have read SOTW 4 at all. One idea I had would be to use a LCC model and have a Classical History block, and Modern History block and do both periods this year. But I'm concerned that this would be too much. Plus, which period do I expect the outlining, etc. from. Both? One? I'm also unsure what to do with my ds for Science. I had planned to do Apologia General with him and get him used to reading textbook and notes and tests, etc. But i will be using Elemental Science Biology for the Logic Stage with my dd. Part of me wants to have ds do this too! We haven't done Biology yet. We've done Astronomy, Chemistry, Botany, and some Physics. He said Biology sounds fun. The idea of a microscope and experiments together sounds fun to me. It also sounds doable with our History Schedule if we attempt both periods. Elemental Science can be done in 2 days whereas Apologia is 4 a week. Here's what we have for school planned next year. ds 7th Writing: Classical Writing Homer B Lit: taking a class meets 1x weekly with other homeschoolers Spelling: Spelling Workout G Grammar: Rod and Staff 7 Latin: Lively Latin 2 math: TT PreAlgebra Science: Apologia General or Elemental Biology History: SOTW 4 and K12 HO Prehistory to Medieval Logic: undecided-suggestions? Music: 4th year of piano attempting Certificate of Merit for the first time He is also playing Fall Baseball and is in Boy Scouts dd 5th Writing: Classical Writing Aesop B Spelling: Spelling Workout E Grammar: Rod and Staff 5 Latin: Lively Latin 2 Math: TT 6 Science: Elemental Biology History: SOTW 4 and SOTW1 (which one do I have her outline though?) Logic: Mindbenders Music: 4th year of piano and attempting Certificate of Merit for 1st time Ballet: 3 times a week and just joined the studios Performing Company dd 1st Phonics: MFW 1st grade Math:RS B Science: Elemental Science Biology Lapbooking History: SOTW 1 Am I crazy for thinking of doing both History periods? And if anyone out there thinks it's doable, do you have any suggestions? Like which one to outline and which one to read and just answer questions? Or ?????? And what about Science? Is Elemental Science Biology too easy for my ds 7th? I have been reading the Science threads and saw where some said in high school there isn't a foundation that is expected since they start at the beginning again. I really want to make the most of what time I have left with my ds before he hits those tough high school years. Also, if i did Elemental Science with him, he will be pursuing Merit Badges for Boy Scouts and many of those are Science Related. He is taking a couple of courses on the weekend at a Scout place to earn some Science related badges so he would have more Science exposure there too.... i don't know why but this 7th grade year is stressing me out more than the others!!!!! I feel like he's getting so old! And it was always important, but I'm feeling it is more important now?!?!?!??! Anyone BTDT? Also, when the kids get in Logic Stage do you buy them their own books? So two KF's and two Science books, etc? Otherwise, how do I schedule that? Right now, I write down in their planners what they need to do for the week, and they work what they can independently. Sharing the KF adds another thing they have to figure out how to time. YKWIM? Thanks, Kim
  11. My dd will be in 5th next year, and I am considering using History Odyssey Level 2 - Middle Ages for her, but after reviewing The Story of Mankind I don't think she is going to like it as much having come from SOTW 1 this past year. (We pulled her from PS last year and decided then to start her at the beginning in the history cycle). Has anyone created a schedule showing how k12s Human Odyssey text could be integrated instead of The Story of Mankind?
  12. Hello. I'm wanting to use HO2 for logic stage history, but really do not want to us Loon's SOM. I've seen some suggestions on using SOTW with it instead, but we have used that in the grammer stage and frankly I would like a change. Has anyone had any experience with using the K12 History Odyssey books with HO2? What little I can find about the History Odyssey books seems really great and I love the fact that HO2 is basically a road map for how WTM says to do history, so I am wondering if I could successfully combine the two??? Any input? Thanks!
