High School Grading Samples

Hi, I have a rising 9th grader and have been looking at the introduction to the WG guide. I was wondering if you would consider posting samples of the grading pages actually filled in. When I look at these pages, I see percentages for the different areas, but not exactly how to come up with the scor...

Re: RTR IEW Checklist

Thanks, Victorytrain. We already have been writing in the workbook and wrote on the checklist itself, so I'm trying to determine if it would be best to rip it out and keep it with the writing assignment. I'm not sure what was intended.

Thanks,
Kathy

RTR IEW Checklist

Hi,

The IEW guide says the student is to turn in their final draft with the checklist for that lesson paper-clipped to it, and then store the checklist with the paper in the binder. Are we to rip it out of the student book?

Thanks,
Kathy

Re: French

Thank you! We are trying an online class, and will see how it goes. The teacher supplements the text and worksheets with Duolingo, so I'm thankful my dd already has experience with it.
Hopefully the class will work out!

Re: RTR and extensions

We are returning to HOD, and my dd has covered U.S. History the past three years and really wanted to go back to Medieval. I also want to make sure she is getting the narration instruction she needs. I also suspect she has mild dyslexia, so I'm trying to not overburden her with too much reading. We ...

Re: Beautiful South Dakota

I traveled to South Dakota as a child, but I didn't remember these long summer days! They really helped us make the most of our trip! :)

Beautiful South Dakota

Hi, We are traveling through South Dakota over the next few days on a trip out west, and I just have to say it is beautiful and so fun to see the "heart" of South Dakota! :) I cannot believe the sun is still setting at 9:50 p.m.!!! We've been watching it set for the past hour! It's just beautiful! :...

Re: Need Guidance for a Typical R&S 6 Day

Thanks, Stacey. So you do the tests instead of the chapter reviews? And do you cover the sections in the lessons that the worksheets don't cover? It seems like they usually cover one section of the written lesson.

RTR and extensions

For an 8th grader in RTR, is it better to do the extensions instead of the storytime if time is too tight to do both? Do you do the extension activities and skip the storytime activities? And they read the extensions themselves, correct?

Thanks,
Kathy

Re: Need Guidance for a Typical R&S 6 Day

Thanks, christianmom! Which year did you use CLE? Did you switch at the higher middle school levels at all? I'm wondering if R&S ramps up more than CLE in 7th and 8th? Obviously the writing does, but I'm wondering if the grammar does, too? From what I've seen, they seem to be similar in the lower le...

Re: Need Guidance for a Typical R&S 6 Day

Thank you both for explaining how you use R&S. Christianmom, thank you for your thoughts on possibly needing R&S 7 or 8. I have had the same feeling, and have been trying to decide what to do there because it would help to be able to use the high school guides as written. In comparing R&S 6 and CLE ...

Need Guidance for a Typical R&S 6 Day

Hi, My 8th grade dd will be working through R&S 6 this year, and since it is our first time using R&S, I'd like to get a handle on how a typical day flows. I've heard all along to do 2/3 orally, 1/3 written, but I need help understanding more specifically what that means. I have read in the past how...

French

Hi, My dd would like to study French for her high school foreign language credits. She has been using Duolingo this year in 7th grade just to get familiar with the language, and could continue on with that for 8th grade without assigning credit to it. I was wondering if HOD has any recommendations f...

Bigger Hearts - The Ship that Sails PDF Correction

Hi,

I checked under PDF corrections and could not find a replacement page for The Ship that Sails. Is there one? The child is supposed to circle rhyming words in crayon, and I'd like to have a copy without the errors for my child to work from and to store for our records.

Thanks,
Kathy
