Oak Meadow HighSchool Courses


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used Oak Meadow's highschool courses for World Geography, Health & Fitness, or Intro to Literature and Comp.: The Hero's Journey?  Can you share your experience using them, and if you liked them?  Does the Lit. and Comp. course cover instructional writing?

 I haven't used them yet, but I have Health and Lit & Comp on my shelf for next year.  Can you explain what you are looking for in "instructional writing?"  Every Lesson in "The Hero's Journey" has a writing assignment that includes a "writing tip" that then refers the student to a section of "A Pocket Style Manual" or "Write it Right" for more information.  The final 2 lessons are larger writing assignments; a 5-page essay analyzing the literature studied and a hero's story focussing on plot and character development.  

HTH!

My daughter has done several years of IEW, and we are going to be finishing WWS 1 this year for 8th grade.  I just feel like she needs more instruction in essay writing, and research papers.  Before considering OM's Lit & Comp I was planning WWS 2 (I know technically its for junior high, but even SWB has said it can be used for older kids if they will benefit from the skills) or EIW 9 so she could get more explicit instruction.
