  1. I'm considering Scholars online for Literature and French. I did a search and can't find any recent reviews within the last few years. Does anyone have recent experience with this online provider?
  2. I received some information today that I thought I would pass on for anyone who might be interested. This is regarding the possibility of a one-year accelerated AP Physics course that meets the 2-year requirement. Earlier in the year I had inquired about an AP Physics course offered by Scholars Online. At the time, I was told they usually alternate this class with AP Chemistry and would not be offering this class for the 2014-2015 school year. Well, I just received this email. Due to my ds' heavy senior year load with other AP courses, he had already decided to take a regular track physics class, but I though others might be interested, Here is what Dr. Christe Ann McMenomy sent me: I have had several inquiries as to whether it would be possible to offer the Scholars Online Physics course next year (2014-2015). Normally this course alternates with the AP Chemistry course, which is already scheduled for the 2014-2015 year in the traditional upper division AP Science slot on Mondays and Thursdays. I am writing to ask whether you might still be interested in an SO Physics AP course for 2014-2015. If I do get sufficient interest, we will post the course for enrollment and work out a convenient chat times with the enrollees later this summer. Course text would be the Giancoli 7th edition instead of the 6th. Tuition would remain the same and syllabus would be adjusted to meet the new AP Physics standards, which recommend a two-year approach but allow for teaching the entire preparation for AP Physics 1 and Physics 2 in one year. Please let me know if you are interested. I thought this looked very interesting and wanted people to know about it. I am guessing the best way to reach her with any inquiries would be to go to the Scholars Online Teachers page and click on her name (Dr. Christe Ann McMenomy) to access her direct email address. Hope this helps someone!
  3. We're still new to the whole online class thing, so I'm not sure how to handle grading disputes. My son took an online science class and it was going fine through Christmas, then it just fell apart. Teacher stopped posting quizzes, lab instructions and homework assignments. I sent several emails and finally received a reply that there had been a couple of deaths in the family and some other issues, but she would get it all taken care of soon. Now the class is over and my son is still trying to get all of his lab assignments so he can finish the class. She recorded his final exam grade incorrectly, but after several emails we got that straightened out. Now it seems that she is leaving out of his grade average the entire spring semester's homework assignments, and his research report grade is also recorded incorrectly. I've asked her about this and now she tells me that it is all in the average, she just isn't breaking it out for me to see. She also explained that she is officially "on vacation" but working 8+ hours per day on completing her classes. The final spring lab assignments are never going to get posted now, so he just needs to choose more labs from the fall list. Obviously, I'm frustrated. But my real question is, what should I do about his grade? Anything? I do not think it is being averaged correctly, but I can no longer find the list of how his class grades are calculated, so I guess that is just up to the teacher? It seems clear that she is through for the year and does not wanting to re-visit any grades at this time. According to her grades, he is very close to an A. When I look at his grades, I think it would be an 'A' if she were including his spring homework and correcting his research paper score in her grades. What would you do?
  4. Does anyone have any feedback or experience with Scholars Online Natural Science1? Looks like it is a survey science course, with full Lab, that does qualify as High School level. Middle school students can take this. Thanks.
  5. Hey, I just wanted to give major kudos to these folks: http://www.scholarsonline.org/Info/index.php We just finished their high school British Literature course and were very, very pleased. My spouse and I are both English majors, and our standards are very high, which is one of the reasons we're homeschooling. We were NOT disappointed in the slightest. Scholars Online provided a thorough, complete understanding of English literature grounded in a solid understanding of the historical context that gave rise to the various traditions, genres, and styles of English literature. (I have an M.A. in English from a good university, and I ended up learning a great deal more than I ever knew about the "big picture" topics of history, genre, and style.) The course was laid out clearly and thoroughly, and the instructor's tests fairly assessed the material. Interaction took place in chats which you could print out and review later. I never would have thought of that as being a major advantage, but WOW, it was! How useful it was to say, "Now, what exactly did Dr. McM say about the multiple narrative personas of Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales? How did he put that??" It is a Christian organization, but speaking as someone not particularly religious, it was by no means obtrusive. It was present in the appropriateness of the selections for young students, the courtesy that was modeled by the instructor, and in the honesty expected of the students. I would recommend it for anyone regardless of religious affiliation or lack thereof. We will definitely be taking more classes with them again. In addition to literature, they also teach Latin, science, and other courses as well. They are provisionally accredited, which means that credit should transfer or be applicable toward a HS diploma, if need be. If anyone has any other questions, feel free to reply or PM. I am very, very happy and want to spread the word. Note: We are not employed by Scholars Online or any affiliate of theirs. We're not being paid or recompensed in any way, shape, or form.
  6. I am seriously considering this class for my dd14 next year. I would appreciate some feedback on the class from those of you who have experience with it. Thanks
  7. My daughter (a rising senior) is interested in taking astronomy through either the Potter's School or Scholars Online. Both teachers look great on paper, but I was hoping for some personal feedback/input. Thanks in advance for any help you can give! :)
  8. In hopes that this might light the path for some of you, I wanted to share some thoughts about what we have done right in launching a science-oriented kid toward his goals. 1. Scholarsonline.org class with Dr. Christe McMenomy. My son started in 7th grade with the Natural Science I class. It has been a great experience, and challenged him to sort through a large quantity of online information to find what he needs--a very useful skill for the future, but also a wonderful way to add lots of arcane knowledge to his brain! {grin} There was a local course that many of his homeschooled peers were attending this year, but I don't think he could have had better preparation for high school than the Natural Science II class he has taken this year. This course is a lot of work, and I modified our other history assignments to allow time for this class. As a result of these classes, my child aced the science portion of the EXPLORE test. He got 25 out of 25 questions correct! We live in a very competitive school district, but my son is probably ahead of where he would have been in the public school with the fantastic teachers at Scholarsonline.org. http://www.scholarsonline.org/Info/coursedesc.php?id=304&title=Natural%20Science%20I 2. Subscription to Science News magazine. 3. Visiting Engineering Open House at college, and campus visitation day at another engineering school. Visits to science museums, national labs, etc. 4. Volunteer work at planetarium/science museum. And no, I don't have any financial reason to write about any of these resources! I have been helped enormously by others who have shared their success stories, and wanted to help others. I also will recommend the book I heard about first on this board, "What High Schools Don't Tell You." Hope this helps someone! Pat
  9. Hi, I am looking for feedback on Scholar's Online and Potter's School. I am considering writing, precalculus, American Literature, British literature and science so any insight would be greatly appreciated! I have searched earlier threads and others were planning to enroll so I am hoping since time has elapsed others can share their experience. TIA! Clare
  10. My dd really would like to take an online science class with Scholars Online. They alternate Chemistry and Physics, next year Chemistry is on offer, and Physics will be up the following year (which will be dd's senior year). She took Chemistry this year (apologia). So the latest idea is for her to do Adv. Chemistry next year (as a junior) and the online Physics class as a senior. Any and all thoughts, opinions, and ideas are appreciated. I guess my main concern is that she will put off Physics till her senior year. But she has really enjoyed Chemistry this year and will plan to take both SAT and AP for Chem next spring (we have conflicts for the testing dates this year). Thanks :)
