CyndiLJ Posted July 23, 2012 Share Posted July 23, 2012 Now that I officially have an 8th grader, I guess it is time to think about high school! I am trying to keep our 5 doing history/social studies together as best we can, and plan to use Walch's Power Basics as a framework with its lower language level and supplement with Great Courses for high school. Beginning HSing mid stream as we did, we were never able to do the history rotation, and we have never started it from beginning to end, so I thought Power Basics might help as it will be quick for us to go through together as a group to get the big picture without being too detailed, then bring the details in with the Great Courses lectures and other readings. I wondered how others are using the Great Courses. I am familiar with them having listened to a couple myself in the past, and think they are a terrific resource. Have you just had your child listen/watch them? Have you assigned essays with them? Have you created tests? I guess I need ideas for how others are working with them to flesh out subjects. :bigear::bigear: Thanks, Cindy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
