Re: Placement Chart Questions?

Thanks so much for sharing a bit more about your kiddos! Based on what you've shared, I think your 14 year old could probably handle MTMM, however if you desired to keep your 13 and 14 year old together (and they work well together), you could do Revival to Revolution with both of them instead. :D ...

Re: Placement Chart Questions?

That is very helpful! Thanks for writing it all out for us! My first two cents are that when uncertain between two guides, go with the lower one. Especially with multiple students to teach! And the fact that in their writing you assess them in a lower guide would support that, as well, since there ...

Re: Guide Placement?

Looking at the placement charts, which guide (or which guides) do you see them as closest to placing in, if you consider each one independently of the others? Blessings, Thank you for your post Rice, and for your question. I will do my best to answer. I am going to go down the placement chart I hav...

Placement Chart Questions?

My children are now 16, 14, 13, and 11. They were 12, 10, 8, and 6 the last time we were using HOD. I am considering HOD again for next fall; I think my two primary reasons are the following: I have some concerns that I am not assigning enough for college preparation, and I am finding it increasingl...

Re: Discovering Design with Chemistry-Question on Experiment

You are correct that rubbing alcohol won’t work. The denatured alcohol for experiment 2, chapter 3 of the book can be found next to the paint in a hardware store. It is used for paint thinner, and it does say denatured alcohol on the can. You will need it for more experiments during the year so it i...

Re: 9th Grade Physical Science?

The integrated Physics / Chemistry in 9th with WG I believe would cover your physical science credit. What they are wanting is typical. Two basic science sequences are often used: Biology Chemistry Physics AP science Or: Physical Science - I believe WG Integrated Physics covers this credit. Biology ...

Re: Placing DS16 - World History w/ writing difficulties

* Does IPC followed by Chemistry seem like Chemistry overkill?? I am concerned. I’d like him to have the Physical Science but it sounds like it isn’t enough and that IPC is stronger. I don’t think it would be overkill to have Chemistry follow IPC. IPC introduces some of the base knowledge needed fo...

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...

Re: Placing DS16 - World History w/ writing difficulties

I’ve been looking at the placement chart with my own 15 year old in mind. I thought this quote I copied from the HOD web-site by the placement chart may help you: Each of the rows is placed in order of importance for correct placement, so consider the first row (AGE) to be more important than the se...

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

I have used both CLE and R&S. CLE 700 is past R&S 6. I would suggest the placement test on Milestone. You may need to use R&S 7 or 8. The oral lessons are intended to be done orally, and they are very good for teaching oral communication. This element is missing in CLE, and it is an elememt I apprec...

Re: Cost

I find homeschooling costs more the older they become. And, the more children being homeschooled also increases the cost. For four children, I spend approximately $2,000 a year. When they were all younger it was closer to $1,00 when some hadn’t started school yet. I find Highschool costs more. I’ve ...
