Homeschool Curriculum - How to Fail in High School Math

Homeschool Curriculum - How to Fail in High School Math
>>>>Dorette asked: Why did you use Saxon Advanced Math when it looks like you used another program for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry?<<<< A wise homeschool Mom once said, "If it works, use it. If it doesn't work - Change!"We used Addison-Wesley math books through elementary school. When we started Algebra, the next book in the series was Algebra 1 by Paul Foerster. It was highly rated by homeschool suppliers, so it seemed like the...

Home Schooling Resources - What about teaching homeschool grammar?
>>>>Dorette asked a questions about our Sample Comprehensive Record. "Did you ever do any "intensive" grammar course with your boys? I see that you did a Latin course that includes grammar.

Homeschooling Curriculum - How valuable is a formal literature program for my homeschooler?
>>>>A reader asks: I am considering doing some sort of formal literature with my 7th and 8th grader. We have never done any formal literature.......Or should I just assign them some reading and have them write about it?<<<<I vote for just reading good books :-) I always felt guilty that we didn't do a "literature program".

Homeschooling Resources - Are "Great Illustrated Classics" Worthwhile?

Homeschooling Resources - Are "Great Illustrated Classics" Worthwhile?
>>>>I was asked if using "Great Illustrated Classics" was a good idea...<<<<I'm very familiar with those books, and I have actually suggested them for parents to use when their kids simply won't read college reading list material (which can happen for a variety of reasons.) They do have illustrations, which can help remedial readers but annoy older teens. I believe they are written at a 5th grade reading level. An adult reader can get through each...

Homeschooling Resources - Pre-Calculus Question Part 1
A friend of mine was having a problem with her daughter taking pre-calculus. After doing well on the first test, she had failed the second. She thought it might be the curriculum and was looking for advice on what to do.I responded:A wise woman once said: "When it doesn't work, stop using it." Time to switch, if you ask me. First thing I suggest is going online to The Teaching Company, and getting a video of...

Homeschooling Resources - Pre-Calculus Question Part 2
My friend developed a plan and I wanted to encourage her to implement it.I wrote:Do you remember when the kids were babies, and things would get really hard and miserable? One thing that helped me at THAT stage of life, was realizing that those things only tend to last for a week or two. I was never sure whether it was me adapting to them, or them adapting to me, but after two weeks the thing...

Homeschooling Resources - What about Teaching High School Science?

Homeschooling Resources - What about Teaching High School Science?
Have you wondered how parents can teach a subject they don't know? How will you teach high school sciences without having a background in science? Carol asked me about physics, and was resigned to studying physics herself over summer, so that she could teach it to her student. Here is my response: Carol,You can certainly study physics over the summer if you WANT to.... But I didn't want to! We used Apologia Physics, and it was...
