Abbreviation Sticky

Recommended Posts

I am not a newbie (homeschooling for about 17 years or so by the grace of God) but I need this list. I'm not here regularly but when I am, I need to have the list next to me because I've usually forgotten what few abbreviations I understood thE last time I was here.

 

Thank you!!!

WWS (Writing with Skill) hasn't been added to either of the homeschool abbreviation lists yet. Nor has it been covered on this thread, although someone asked about it here.

 

Although I guess it has been now!

I thought I saw people talking about MCT math, but maybe they were talking about two things at the same time and I got confused.

Easy to get confused with all the abbreviations floating around! :) Let me know if you find out that there is a math-oriented homeschool definition for MCT - sometimes the same abbreviations are used for more than one thing.

What is MEP? What about WWE?

 

From my abbreviations page (link below):

 

MEP "Mathematics Enhancement Programme," a free British math curriculum

 

WWE "Writing with Ease," Susan Wise Bauer's writing-instruction series designed for elementary-aged writers and older students who still struggle; published by Peace Hill Press

 

Hope this helps!

This is odd -- I got notification for Marie's reply but not for UndercoverPrincess's question. It looks like my link was out-of-date, so I fixed that; thanks Marie!

 

You're welcome :)!

 

I think I know what happened! It's happened to me also. You got notification of morosophe's post and replied to it but missed UndercoverPrincess's because it was at the top of the following page. Even though you posted directly under hers, if you didn't scroll up, it is easy to miss.

Ah! I think that's happened to me another time too. I wish we could set an option to get notified for all posts, whether we follow the link in the notification or not. Just FEI (for everyone's information -- I made that up ;)), I can also be reached through the mail link on my abbreviations page.

 

Thanks for solving the mystery, Marie! :hurray:

I'm seeing "CHOLL" and "CHOLLA" tossed around. Can you help me with that one? I have figured out that the A is for Ancients, but the rest has me stumped.

 

Thanks!

I can't decipher EE which is being used in a Geography post. From your great list, I saw EA is Exploring America. Is EE maybe Exploring Europe?

 

Thanks for this thread and the compilation of abbreviations! It's so helpful!

EE is Expedition Earth from the blog Confessions of a Homeschooler (COAH).

The abbreviations annoy me as well. I've homeschooled for 8 years and have used a plethora of popular curriculums but still struggle with identifying every acronym. When I use abbreviations I try to spell them out first to eliminate any confusion. There are way too many new systems popping up each and everyday to abbreviate them all and expect people to know what they are. LOL

 

So I know and use Writing with Ease but what is WWS?

I will need something beyond WWE 3 next year. :)

Thank you! This is very helpful.

 

I think what would be great is that when people write a post, they state the full title the first time they mention it in the post. Then after that, they can use the acronym. Does that make sense?

But I don't get how it's used here...

 

It just means that you may not get the same results as the poster did. Originally it is from car sales ads or stickers and they meant it literally to avoid lawsuits when consumers didn't get the same mileage as was touted in the commercials.

I have looked and looked and can't find an answer anywhere. What is JAWM??

 

Just Agree With Me (!)

Here is my abbreviation page:

 

 http://whythereyouare.com/homeschool/homeschool_abbreviations.htm 

 

but it is slowly getting out-of-date, because I am no longer getting email notifications when someone replies to this topic.  :-(

 

If anyone can help me, I'd really appreciate it.  I get email notifications for other things (such as when someone likes a post of mine), but I haven't gotten notified when some replies to a topic I am following since the new forums were created, even though I am "following" all the abbreviation topics, and I have notification set to get immediate emails when someone posts to topics I'm following.  It makes me really sad because I put in a lot of work on the page and had a lot of help doing it, but now it is suffering from dry rot. 

 

If you have any abbreviations that you'd like me to add to my page, please use the "contact me" link on that page.

 

Thanks,

Debbie D.
