Has anyone used Memoria Press Online Academy for AP US History or AP European History? Anyone familiar with Julie Baldwin (teaches APUSH) at Memoria Press Online? Please feel free to PM if you would rather not share publicly.
Since I'm still waiting for WHA to open their schedule for this fall, I've had a chance to look around for alternative online classes. Kolbe caught my eye since they use Foerster for Algebra II. (WHA uses Dolciani.) Before looking into online classes for this kid, I was planning on using Foerster, although Dolciani is obviously a perfectly acceptable alternative. Their 9th grade English class focuses on "intensive composition." "The goal of this course is to help students write well-formed expository, persuasive and compare/contrast essays." The whole first paragraph of the Course Description sounds wonderful for my writing-phobic-but-needs-to-get-over-it dd#1. (Not so thrilled with the vocab study, but I'm okay with it.) Has anyone taken either of these classes? Do you have a review you can share? Any teacher you feel strongly about (pro or con)? I see where some have taken Biology with Kolbe, but not so much the other online classes. I'm seriously pondering doing one (or both) of these since (over WHA) for a variety of reasons. But, I'd like to hear from someone who has used them first.
