Re: Landmark biographies/books?

They are excellent books! We own several due to a friend who used to work for the public school of which the school's library was clearing out books & these landmark books were included. I found some reviews online: "This series is superlatively well done and is a major contribution to the informati...

Re: HOD Blog

Okay, here's what I just did ( there's probably a better way, but anyhow....) go to the blog & scroll down to Topics by Category (on the right) click on Dear Carrie. Scroll down about halfway to the article Nervous about Homeschooling in High School to be Ready for College. At the bottom of the arti...

Re: HOD Blog

Actually, I had just gotten the Teaching tip from HOD in my email. That's where I read the Streamlined lunches but down further they had the Graduate spotlight. It is in the blog though. I just don't know how to tell you right off quick where to find it as I rather stumbled onto it myself today.

HOD Blog

HI! Just wanted to let you know that I love the Streamlined lunch ideas. I am going to see what we can come up with for our family & may use some of the ideas that were listed. Also, I really love reading the Heart of Dakota Graduate Spotlight. I would really like to pick some of these families brai...

Re: We've gotten behind

Can credit still be given if one does not finish the guide in a school year?? They would certainly be learning a whole pile more than what would be covered in a workbook approach.

We've gotten behind

We've gotten behind.... I read this recently from the new hod blog : ("What did our family do when we were “behind”? I share this tip with you, because I know from personal experience what it’s like to be “behind." In one of our years of schooling, we were behind by 10 weeks by year-end. The year ha...

Re: Working in Beautiful Girlhood

Thanks for sharing your thoughts & experience. We likely will just hold off using it. Maybe I should get the book & read it myself so I'll have an idea what it's like.

Working in Beautiful Girlhood

My DD is 11 & currently using Preparing. I was wanting to use Beautiful Girlhood with her sometime, & would prefer, I think, to use the lesson plans in the Resurrection to reformation guide, BUT she won't be in that guide for at least a couple of years yet. That would make her at age 13 & by then wo...

Re: Ideas for Completing Guides?

Does it help you feel any better to know that my 5th grade / 11yo is finishing up Preparing and my almost 9yo 3rd grader is in the middle of Beyond? If the guide is working for them and they are progressing then they are not behind. Now that does make ME feel better :) tho it was intended for the O...

Re: Boys to Men and FRUSTRATION

I'm listening in too! I have 3 boys, 13, 16, & 18. This has been our battle too!

Re: High School narrations

LynnH, thank you for sharing. That was very helpful & exactly the kind of a response I was hoping for.

High School narrations

Could someone give some explanation to the reasons or benefits of doing the various kinds of narrating as instructed in the high school guides, vs just, well, narrating.
