Research papers in U.S. History 1 and 2?

Good morning,

My ds must do a 2500 word research paper each year as a requirement for our diploma program. Is a research paper scheduled in either U.S. History 1 or 2?

Thank you!

Res to Ref -- which English for dd who didn't do CTC

Hello, I have been looking through the teachers manual and just realized that the first half of the Rod & Staff was covered in CTC. Due to illness, we put our dc in a christian school last year. Before that, my dd (entering 5th grade) had finished Preparing and was doing Bob Jones for English. I tho...

Field trip ideas for Res2Ref and Rev2Rev

Hello,

Does anyone has any suggestions for field trips that they may have taken while using the above guides? We are in PA, but are keeping our options open for anything on the east coast :)

Thanks!

Re: Should we switch from Singapore?

Thank you for the responses everyone! I just want to give a little more detail. My ds doesn't just get a few problems wrong. He can't even get started! For example, we are doing Practice 7A from the 4A textbook right now. With correcting, we will have a total of 3 days spent on this exercise. Before...

Should we switch from Singapore?

Hello. I'm looking for some advice re: my 10 yr old ds (4th grade) and Singapore. He is now coming to the end of 4A and we have been really struggling this year with retention. I'll spend extra time teaching something (i.e. fractions) and when we review it a month later, he can't remember how to beg...

Re: Preparing for 2nd (8 in Aug) and 4th (10 in Jan) Grader

Hello, We just finished Bigger and started Preparing this past week with my ds, who was 10 in Sept. (4th grade), and my dd who was 8 in Nov. (2nd grade). My dd did cursive in 1st grade. She just finished Emerging Readers and is starting DITHOR. So far so good :). Just from our very limited experienc...

Re: Roll Call - When are you all starting?

We'll be starting the 2nd half of Bigger tomorrow. I plan to go 1/2 speed for the first 2 weeks to get us back in the swing of things and also to allow more time to spend at the public pool before it closes. Last year, we went out to a favorite restaurant for breakfast on the first day :) Have a ble...

Re: Is it OK to be 1/2 guide "behind"?

Julie -- thank you for the reply and the encouraging words. I had just come from our CHAP convention and was feeling a little overwhelmed. I was afraid that my ds would be missing out by not completing all the guides. I feel better knowing that our situation is not unusual. I've enjoyed our experien...

Re: Is anyone happy @ combining?

Hi. I don't have a lot of experience to add either -- this was our first year hs. We combined our 7 yr old dd (1st grade, but advanced) and our 9 yr old ds (3rd grade) in Bigger this year and have been loving it. They both have their separate Reading, LA and Math, but do everything else together. I ...

Re: Pacing Preparing and doing it with two children

Hello.

I'm currently using Bigger with 2 dc. I don't know if this is the best way, but I read half of the assigned pages and ask one of them to narrate what I read up to that point. I then read the rest of the pages and ask the other to narrate the rest.

I hope that helps.

MomtoJGJE -- Thank you for your reply. It sounds like you will have a very busy year! netpea -- Thank you also. I try not to worry (that's a struggle of mine:)). I wasn't concerned about now as much as I was thinking of middle school and high school. Probably a little early to be thinking that far a...

Is it OK to be 1/2 guide "behind"?

Hello. We are just finishing up our first year of hs and both my ds (9) and dd (7) both agree that they don't want to go back to ps. My ds has decided that he would like to be hs for the rest of his life, including college :D. I'm not sure about the college part, but my dh and I both feel that the L...
