Kfamily Posted January 10, 2011 Share Posted January 10, 2011 I'm trying to sort out the main differences with these levels in classes. I was thinking that Advanced Placement classes must center around the AP test for which it shoud prepare you, is this right? Does a homeschool AP class have to be approved or is this just a good option? Could you call your class an AP class if you prepare for the AP test and your child does well on it (without the approval)? What main aspects separate a general class from an honors level class? When I was in school this mostly meant that for an advanced class we had more outside reading, perhaps a few more difficult books, more essays, etc. (in general). Is this the right idea? I fully intend to create the best classes that I can for dd for high school. I think they would meet the requirements for an honors class, but then again maybe not...:lol: How does it look for a transcript made by mom to have many honors level classes? What would you consider the main differences with an honors class in any subject vs. a general class? For example, in math would that mean a solid text with many of the more challenging problems worked? For history, would this mean a solid text with several supplemental reads with essays and tests which incorporate some deeper thinking? Sorry, I'm so inexperienced with this so please excuse any questions with the wrong ideas...:D Thanks for any advice! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
