Melis Posted February 26, 2008 Share Posted February 26, 2008 Hello! :) I am a first time homeschooler and...I AM SO LOST! LOL :) The first HS book I borrowed from the library was Home Learning Year by Year by Cathy Duffy. I love how this book lays it all out in black and white as far as what the boys should know by the end of each grade. I believe this is just a general guideline, but I'm not a 100% sure about that either...I live in NH and from what I understand, we have a choice between having the boys tested at the end of the year or evaluated. The problem is, I'm not certain what they will be tested or evaluated on. What do these tests and evaluations mean? Is there a pass or fail? Is this a state specific thing? My next HS book was TWTM (which I LOVE), but all the areas have somehow turned to grey! LOL Language arts and mathematics seem to be pretty straightforward and ON with the Home Learning Year by Year book as far as where they will be by year's end, but I get really lost when considering science and social studies. I see some HS'ers don't really do science until the upper grades. I'm just wondering how this all works out as far as testing and evaluating. Are students not tested in science and social studies? Is it different in each state? I apologize if this question does not belong in this forum. Thanks so much for all of your guidance and input! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
