  1. It looks like DD REALLY wants to change plans and do MFW WHL before AHL. Don't want to go into the details, but for now it appears we may just need to put off the Ancients. DD is really excited about beginning 9th with WHL. Is there any problem with doing this out of order and either reversing AHL and WHL, or putting off AHL to an even later high school year? She is a very bright girl with strong comprehension and writing skills. :) Thanks for any and all help! JFG
  2. I did a lot of research for high school around this time last year, even though high school was quite far off for ds. I really liked the look of MFW high school program and was encouraged by all the positive reviews. Of course, now I'm second guessing my decision and am wondering if it really is the direction that I want to go for ds, who will be starting 9th grade in September. This is my first one to homeschool through high school, and doing it in a foreign country makes it doubly intimidating. There is absolutely no one here who is using a traditional American high school program, and ds doesn't want to go through the British system with GCSEs, etc. Anyway, all that to say, I'd love to hear how it is working for your family. If it isn't working, why? And if you love it, what is it about the program that makes it so great? Also, what type of student do you have? Ds does what he's assigned without too much complaint, but can be lazy and sloppy with his work. He's not a super-motivated, enthusiastic student. I'd hate to get something that wasn't a good fit for him. Do you think MFW would work for him? Finally, how much time does it take with you? Ds prefers to work independently. It's my understanding that the student and parent are supposed to have a conference at the end of each week, but other than that it's independent. Is this correct?
  3. Sorry, I am really pondering, and trying to figure out what to do with my son next year. He is finishing up writeshop 2 and a little Jump In thrown in for good measure. :) I am planning on starting him in AHL, even though he will be in 10th grade. Is there enough writing and literary analysis included over the high school years, or do I need to supplement? Is the writing/ English course considered college prep? I was debating adding in Teaching the Classics, and Windows to the World, or something. Highschool makes me nervous. I only have 3 years left. :001_huh: :eek: Do I need to add or do anything else besides, math, science, and electives??
  4. I'm facing a delimma that I've asked about before. I hope you all won't mind if I ask about this again as the time is quickly approaching for me to start buying our first year of high school curriculua. (And MFW is raising their prices March 1!) Dd in 8th is taking a WONDERFUL Comp I class locally. It involves reading novels, writing literature journals (lit. analysis), and studying mechanics and grammar. Essays are also written: example, classification, definition, process, argumentative, cause and effect, and comparison (Dd is graded on each of these skills. They inter-relate.) The Writer's Reference 6th edition with 2009 MLA updates is used for grammar/mechanics instruction. My delimma is this: I have to decide if she will continue with Comp II or if we'll use MFW for high school and count on the writing to be enough. Comp II will involve Comp I skills PLUS research and MLA documentation. It is a difficult class but comes highly recommended. Comp II doesn't have to follow Comp I, but they definitely work together. The student who takes both is VERY well prepared for college writing. A major difference between MFW and Comp II: MFW links history, Bible and English. The Comp II class is just that... it has NO tie into history or Bible. I really like the way MFW links these subjects together. I read a post this morning about skipping AHL and starting MFW with WHL. I know that might not be the best plan, but if we did that, then dd could take Comp II her 9th grade year. I think it would be WAAYYY overkill to try to do AHL plus Comp II as far as the English credit goes. Comp II is time consuming. (Also expensive, as each of these courses cost around $400.) So, I know it's a subjective question. I know I'll have to make up my own mind. I know this may seem strange to ask. But, do you MFW users have an opinion? Do we forfeit Comp II for MFW? Will MFW writing teach the research and MLA documentation skills? I'm also going to call MFW and ask them about this. Thank you so much for ANY help.
  5. Does the text seem 80% biblical history than "academic history?" When I check over my daughter's end of chapter questions and quiz questions I see very little in the way of what I would consider "world history" I like integrated church/biblical history into our academics but it seems so out of balance. Is the Notgrass American History the same way? Thoughts?
  6. For those who've used MFW World History and have used the optional literature, would you give me input on any of the books you/your dc read? We really love historical fiction and I'm willing to invest in as many books as my dc will read however when going through MFW Ancient History there were definitely some I wasted $ on and we did not read. Thanks so much! Books on the list are: Augustus Caesar's World Bronze Bow Twice Freed Beric the Brighton Ides of April Beyond the Desert Gate Masada Arabian Nights (CD by Jim Weiss) King Arthur (CD by Jim Weiss) Augustine Comes to Kent 3 Legions (Eagle of the 9th, etc.) Shining Company Adam of the Road Dragon and Raven Canterbury Tales Winning His Spurs (this one is so expensive I hesitate to order if it's not a great book) Three Musketeers (CD by Jim Weiss) By Right of Conquest (also quite expensive) Don Quixote Hitler Red Scarf Girl
  7. I was planning to use AHL with my son next year. However, in thinking about the ancient literature the Old Testament, I'm thinking it might not be a great fit for him. I thought about doing a quick review of ancients (he's pretty familiar) and just do WHL. But would he be way behind in writing? Or does WHL review the writing taught in AHL? Wendi
  8. Moving this over from the General Board :D Interested to hear about it in general. Strengths, weaknesses, thoughts otherwise? I've been looking at the new catalog this week and some specific questions as well. . . AHL - what exactly is the ancient literature supplement with grammar and composition? AHL - The Illiad and Oddysey - why the Robert Fagle translations? WHL - anyone used the British Literature teachers guide? What is the British Literature Parallel Text? WHL - History of the World (MFW Edition) is this an adapted version of another book or did they create their own. Likes/dislikes? Science - how do their daily lesson plans compare to Sonlight's? Does it include multimedia/audio plans?
  9. We can't WAIT to get into it! :hurray: DD's perusing the manual right now... I've been looking through it in bits and pieces as I've had a chance since the box arrived yesterday. Oh my goodness, this is so fantastic! Looks like she'll be writing a paper about every other week, with 6 weeks spent on preparing a 5-10 page research paper, but there's a large variety of types of papers throughout the year, concluding with a resume and employment letter for a summer job. One of the papers will be on the subject of marriage and dating/courtship after having read Pride and Prejudice. That's not the only thing she does with P&P, but I thought it was pretty neat to see that particular topic addressed, and to have her write out her thoughts on it. The research paper is 30% of her English grade, the rest of her papers are 60%, and 10% is daily work/discussion with parent. She'll be reading through the New Testament and examining the four predominant views of the end times (no slant one direction or another that I can tell) as well as some of the many different religions out there and what they believe, going through the Experiencing God book, studying church history in-depth (one of the papers is a letter to the editor of the Wittenburg Times criticizing or defending Martin Luther), and reading about many different Christians of the time period... some of which I've never even heard of. Prophecy charts are 10% of her Bible grade, memorizing the names of the NT books is 10%, completion of work/demonstration of high level thinking, service project, discussion with parent, etc. are 80%. She'll start out the year in Week 1 studying Julius Caesar, reading and watching the play, reading in the book of Mark, and then math, science and foreign language or other electives. So for those of us who've done AHL, Week 1 in WHL subjects looks pretty light compared to Week 1 last year. Then she has her first writing assignment in Week 2. The Timeline Book is 30% of her history grade! Review questions from EWH are 10%, and quizzes are 60%. Oh, and there's a LOT more mapwork this year than last. If she completes all of it, she earns 1/4 credit in Geography. Then I believe she earns another 1/4 credit in either year 3 or 4, for a half credit on her transcript in addition to History. There's an optional reading and video list in the back of the manual similar to "Book Basket" that we had in elementary. Of course the list isn't nearly as extensive as the elementary Book Basket lists, because this one is geared ONLY to high schoolers. AHL had some extra reading options listed near the front of the manual, but it wasn't a very long list and not set up Book Basket "style". There's a Bible reading plan for the parent to follow (with check-off boxes) at the back so that we can stay on the same page as our student. In Weeks 3-10 there's no specific literature assigned because those are the weeks the student is working on her research paper. However, there are notes in the Introduction suggesting that strong readers add literature during these weeks as well. There are suggestions at the back for how to do Intro to Logic and Fine Arts if you don't already have a plan in place for these electives. I might post a question about Fine Arts on the MFW board, because most of what's suggested are things we already do! I can use the recordkeeping suggestions, though. They provide both a Listening Log and a Concert/Exhibition/Performance Log which will be helpful for me to keep it all in one place. DD would love to be able to start this *today*, LOL, but I won't let her. She's got a few loose ends from 9th grade work to finish up first (been dragging her feet), so WHL is her motivation to get it done. She's *almost* there.... I gave her a deadline of April 1st. ;)
