Pam L in Mid Tenn Posted July 10, 2012 Share Posted July 10, 2012 (edited) Life is extremely busy at the moment. It is making it hard, almost impossible, for me to plan school. And, we are looking ahead to very unpleasant happenings. MIL is extremely ill and will need some serious 24 hour care until she passes. She lives 2 hours away. I may be picking up more responsibilities at work and may be asked to work 5 days a week, 4 - 6 hours per day in the fall. (This is happy, not "unpleasant") I have already penciled in an overview plan for 10 weeks. I am not putting a date on the planner. We'll use the planner as a checklist ignoring the days of the week printed on the paper. We've already started reading the first chapters/modules/ lessons so in a way I feel "ahead". Not knowing my work schedule or my "care-giving" schedule is making it extremely difficult to plan our written assignments. I would like to have a general plan for each chapter of each subject written down for the first 10 weeks. Then if "life" dictates, I can drop the written assignments and only assign reading if necessary. I know that this coming year will not be "normal". At least I know that beforehand! What types of written assignments to you require? Specifically, what to assign for: BJU Geography? Apologia Biology? Christian Light's Story of Constitution? BJU Economics? Apologia Physics? Great Source American Government? These books are things that my 9th grader and 12th grader will be using this year. Any suggestions on planning for an "unknown" upcoming year? Thanks!
