  1. likes? Dislikes? I'm thinking of using this with my 3 high school age kids. thanks,
  2. I seem to have heard this mentioned a few times lately, and I'm interested in trying to figure out if it would work for my upcoming 9th grader. What's it like? How is it like/unlike TOG? I just can't commit to TOG, but let's not go there. I like things to be all laid out for me, but with a little wiggle room - not a lot of weekly decisions and planning on my part. Would Trisms be more like this?
  3. I want to try something different for history next year. We have done Winter Promise and SOTW in the past. I am looking for more of an all in one curriculum...maybe everything but math. My dd is at around a 6th-7th grade level. I found several things I like, but cannot decide between them. Bright Ideas Press Illuminations curriculum - I just found out about this one. I like how it schedules pretty much everything and like how it has choices for grammar and writing. It is kind of pricey and I am guessing it cannot be resold since it is a download. The main thing keeping me from purchasing is that there is no MOH volume 4 out yet which creates somewhat of a gap between their grade 3-8 curriculum and the high school level. My dd has not had any American history yet...don't know how that happened, so we need to get that in there somewhere between now and 9th grade. Anybody have any pros and cons for this curriculum or reasons not to use it? Trisms - I like that it goes through high school. We would probably start with History Makers which would work well because it has an overview of history-maybe it would fill in the gaps? I know it is supposed to be independent, but just not sure how easy it would be for my dd to follow. I am also on the fence about this one because I am not sure if I like IEW for writing...I have looked at it in the past and felt confused by it all...so we would have to sub in something else which would defeat the purpose of the all in one idea, however, everything else about the curriculum I like. Anybody use this one and not like it? Oak Meadow - It looks really good for the 6th-8th grade years just not sure how strong their grammar and literature would be. If I used it I would probably be tempted to add things to it, which might be more work than it is worth? I know a lot of people like it though...so maybe I am missing out on something good? Anyway, need to find something my dd can be somewhat independent with. Any input on these choices is appreciated.
  4. I'm looking for a new history program. I love the idea of TRISMS - encouraging independent studies, research, rabbit trailing, analysis, etc. However, I've read that there is no spine and that it can seem a bit disjointed. First, if you are a TRISMS user, do you find this to be an accurate assessment and if so, what do you do to mitigate any problems that arise? Second, are there any history programs that have a spine but also encourage independent study and analysis, like TRISMS? Since I have you here, can I also ask a dumb question? What exactly do you need to implement TRISMS? (We're looking at History Makers) Their website isn't entirely clear on that. Hope this made some sense. Thanks!!
  5. Hello all~ I'm looking for anyone who has used TRISMS curriculum, whether you liked it or hated it, I'd love to hear what you have to say about it. Why was it great, or not so great? Did you tweak it? What type of learner & teaching style does it suit best? I asked about this in the high school forum, and received a few great replies, now I'm curious if anyone else has any more input that can help me make this decision. A little back ground~ Two youngest (boys, ages 11 & 12) have done Essentials in Classical Conversations. Daughter- age 14 has finished Challenge A in Classical Conversations, but we are in the middle of possibly moving, and where we are going has no CC--- so....... I'm thinking of at the least having DD do TRISMS (Expansion of Civilization), although I'd be happy to hear any reviews and comments for other years of TRISMS. Will be in... DS 6th grade DS 7th grade DD 9th grade THANK YOU ALL SOOOO MUCH!
  6. Is there anywhere I can read specifically what this program is about? I did visit their website, but I would like to see it or at least hear from someone who uses it. Specifically, what does your day/week look like? Is it rigorous? We currently use ToG, but I want to be more hands-off. A compare/contrast of Trisms vs: Tog would be awesome. Thanks.
  7. I am considering TRISMS for high school history. I would probably add a spine or two and some whole books. For those of you who have used this, what do you like or not like about it? Here's a weird question: Are the worksheets all separate so that you can do some and omit others without having there be lots of unfilled in sheets? (I'm compulsive and the sight of unfilled in worksheets makes me crazy.) Thanks!
  8. I've tried to look this up both here and at the TRISMS site, but I cannot get a real sense of how History Maker works. I realize this a unit study, but I'd like to use it mainly for the study of history with DD (gr.7). Thanks for the help,
  9. I'm contemplating using TRISMS next year. I have been putting history together myself. While dh and I are pleased with the input dd has received, it is a LOT of work, and the amount of output on dd's part needs to be increased a bit. I like the idea of TRISMS, that it is research based using various sources. I love that it incorporated IEW, which we already use. Dh likes that it incorporates science history. There are some things we'd like to know in order to help us make our decision. Hopefully some of you guys have opinions to share. I'm not sure whether I would start with HM or DAW. I have a young advanced student and I'm used to tweaking curriculum to fit her. This wouldn't be her first experience with HS level text. I am wondering if starting with HM would be best to gently get her used to the TRISMS way of doing things. It would also involve little to no tweaking on my part, which is tempting. At the same time, I don't particularly like the idea of a crashing through history from the ancients to the modern world in one year or even 2. I much prefer the idea of studying each time period in-depth. Input and opinions welcome. I also wonder if anyone has any input to share as to using this from a secular POV. We WANT dd to learn about the history of Christianity, along with other religions. We also want her to think about how religion has had both a positive AND negative impact on events. From what I see, TRISMS does not espouse a particular faith, but the questionaires do include questions on religious history. It seems easy enough to change up the questionaires if needed to include Islam, etc. Do the tests and quizzes include questions based on researching the history of one particular religion over another? Is there a good supplimental lit program that goes along with this? I know excerpts are included in the student materials, but I would like to do some studies of the full works if possible- more than book reports. I'd love to hear the good/bad/ugly from folks that have used this up close and personal. TIA! :001_smile:
