  1. Just summarizing the last few threads GRIN... I've been reading these boards for awhile, and I've listened to several of my children's friends complain about their teachers' threats and complaints at the beginning of 8th grade, and I've concluded that it is perfectly normal to spend the entire 8th grade year struggling to begin to learn how to: -Write a short well-organized expository paper -Produce work that has a heading and date, is legible, has full sentences that actually answer the questions, and isn't half question marks -Use an assignment book to keep track of one's assignmen
  2. AKA Drill but hopefully without the kill? I have to admit that I was one of "those" students. The one that would quiz the egghead who had stayed up all night typing up his study guide, count this as my only "study time" and then go in and ace the test. I did not learn to study until I was in seminary studying Greek and finally met my match. I broke out in hives at my first Greek exam! My ds is a student like his old mam. And I have to admit that I've allowed him to look at the big picture, to fill in the details as he goes along, to avoid all the grunt work of drill. Because, as you
  3. Why you should work on TWTM skills - copywork, narration, dictation, outlining, etc. A recent thread made me realize that if I could do one thing over again homeschooling (other than sending my oldest to community college instead of public high school) it would be to do more of TWTM language arts skills - copywork, dictation, narration, outlining, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, memory work, and logic. I didn't know why these were important (guess I didn't read TWTM carefully enough - sigh) so I tended to skip the ones that were hard for us, when in fact, those were the very ones we needed to
  4. There was a recent thread on scheduling and encouraging excellence on the accelerated board where Nan in Mass wrote the following: "I should add that one of the focuses of middle school was academic and organizational skills. There comes a point (and if your children are accelerated, it will come sooner) when the child needs better writing skills, needs to know how to study, how to take notes, how to keep a calendar, how to organize his materials, how to do research, that sort of things.(continues)" As always, Nan got me thinking and wondering what you all do to systematically teach s
  5. My apologies, my search efforts are not producing productive results! :glare: Any reviews or suggestions for either a Career Survey-type course or a Study Skills-type course for an elective? TIA! ETA: this is for a HS student with ADD.
  6. I always see references made to studying smarter, not harder or longer. Can someone please flesh this out for me --- tell me what this would look like? I never really learned proper note taking skills. I really struggle with taking notes from a book, because I feel like I am wasting paper. It isn't a waste, but it will eventually be thrown out because there is no way I will keep all of the notes for future years in school. There would be so many, it would be too overwhelming, so it would be pointless anyways. Digressing from my actual question, but a mindset I have that I am trying to bre
  7. and as a BIG thank you to all you kind ladies who helped with the Study Skills ideas, I thought I'd post the proposal; it's sort of a mission statement, scope, and preliminary topic list, which, if approved, will turn into a sequence by May. Here it is, with big kuddos to all who shared: Scope The purposes of this class are: 1) to help students grow in academic independence and take greater initiative for their own learning, by equipping them with a variety of practical academic skills. 2) to teach them specific skills for studying, organizing, researching, and accessing resourc

I didn't know why these were important (guess I didn't read TWTM carefully enough - sigh) so I tended to skip the ones that were hard for us, when in fact, those were the very ones we needed to work more on. I thought I'd just post this as a separate thread in case it helps even
  9. I just discovered a wonderful series of free, in-depth study skills lectures on YouTube by Professor Scott Brueckner of Long Beach City College that I wanted to pass along. While they are geared toward college students, much of the info is applicable to high schoolers as well. There are about a dozen lectures, each about 45-50 minutes, that cover the following topics: Active Listening, Taking Better Lecture Notes, Great Ways to Study, Organizing Your Study Time, Parts 1 & 2, How to Predict Test Questions, Preparing for Tests, Test-Taking Skills, More Test-Taking Skills, How to Remem
  10. Now that I officially have an 8th grader, I guess it is time to think about high school! I am trying to keep our 5 doing history/social studies together as best we can, and plan to use Walch's Power Basics as a framework with its lower language level and supplement with Great Courses for high school. Beginning HSing mid stream as we did, we were never able to do the history rotation, and we have never started it from beginning to end, so I thought Power Basics might help as it will be quick for us to go through together as a group to get the big picture without being too detailed, then brin
  11. I am looking for books or a course on How to Study. We have already watched TTC Super Star Student, but my son still needs help in this area. Thanks!
  12. Hi, I am wondering what all of you experienced high school homeschool parents would have approached 7th and 8th grade looking back on it now? What would your ideal approach? What would have been your focus? What would you have let go? What resources would you have definitely used, what would you have passed on? Just any thoughts in general you could share. I am going to have a 7th grader next year and would love to get the insights of folks who have BTDT! Thanks! :)
  13. Hi, all! DD has never before had the type of class where note taking was needed. She is concerned about the note taking aspect in some of her classes next year, and has asked for some direction. Is there a concise resource available that would help her? After my own years of note taking in school, I seem to think it is as simple as, "Write quickly, abbreviate, and notate main points, names, and dates. Be sure to write down homework and test dates." For dd never having taken notes before, I think that there is a fear that note taking is something that she needs to learn how to do before
  14. My DS 14 has been working at the high school level for a few years, and while his ability to grasp higher level topics is strong, his ability to study for a test or take notes is, well, not so swift. He is dysgraphic and has ADHD, so I know these are playing a role in the development of these skills, but he needs to develop these before moving on to classroom experiences in the next few years. For note taking, he'll try taking notes to the Teaching Company course he's selected, Meteorology. He'll also be taking notes from his reading, likely guided by a set of questions at first (working
  15. I've been reading the thread about requiring WTM skills (narration, outlining, etc.) for our logic kids. -It evolved into a thread about all the things we often neglect to teach our homeschooled kids (tying shoes, names on papers, etc.). :001_huh: I started wondering just how many skills I've forgotten to teach.... Anyone want to start a list? __________________ Mary DS 11, DD 9, DS 7, DD 5
  16. About 20 weeks into school, and really, I'm totally lost when it comes to History and Literature. I really, really, really wanted to do Literature with History. Because last year in PS I did U.S. I, I needed to do U.S. II this year. So, I was going to do 20th century American Literature this year, but it just never got done. I didn't have the money to buy a History/Lit. program for 11th grade, and I just figured I could throw it together myself. I stumbled upon Ambleside, and I thought it would be great to use. They went by time period though, so I would have had to use a bit of
  17. This thread on the Cornell Method of Note Taking has some links which may be of use. I have noticed a number of new people testing the waters over here on the high school board. It might be nice if we were to tag some of our favorite older posts to share with them. Be well, Jane
  18. Hi ladies, I have until Thursday to come up with a proposal for a Jr. High/early High School Study Skill class for our co-op. We have a huge number of Jr High/9th grade kids in our co-op. Hearing the tutors/teachers talk, it is clear that a class like this would be very beneficial. (Kids not being held accountable, not getting the oversite needed from their parents, therefore not understanding the fundamentals of studying, of organizing, of some of the classroom skills they should have, all the way down to being clueless about leaving margins on paper!) So, if you were to put togethe
  19. 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:-)
  20. The Cornell Method of Note Taking isn't new, but I just "discovered" it yesterday and it looks great -- making the notes useful without having to re-do them. Anyone else using it? Pros? Cons? Better systems? Layout Example More Info Even More Info
