High School Track

Post by God's servant » Thu Aug 08, 2019 9:35 pm

My dd will be a 9th grader this fall and just finished RevtoRev last year, so she needs the second 1/2 of U.S. History and will be doing MTM this fall. Do people grab some of the resources from USII to add to this year since she won't be able to make it to USII her senior year, or do you just not do that year? Is there a different guide people skip for the high school years if they are on MTM that freshman high school year?

If you notice in the options for MTMM, it is for a target range of ages 12 to 14 and can be extended for ages 15 to 16. All you would need to do to make it sufficient for grade 9 is add the Self-study extension package which "extends the study of history for students in grades 9 - 10." You don't need to find other resources. You would order the Economy Package, the Science, the Self-study Extension package, the writing program, and your choices of Reading, Grammar, and Math. So, your daughter would just be getting US History part 2 as a freshman instead of as a senior, and then just do the first 3 high school guides.

Thank you so much for answering my question. I knew that this guide was used for 9th grade, but just wasn't sure if that meant that they skipped Geography, or that final year or what. So the MTM Science can count as high school Science then?
