A Matter of Honor

A Matter of Honor
A Matter of Honor: Honors Classes Honors credit or no honors credit, that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler to give your child a C grade for an honors credit, or a B for a regular credit. First and foremost, your job is to teach your child at their level. Teach for success. It doesn't matter what the course is, or what the books you used. An honors course refers to the depth and extent of how far your child takes the content. Any course can be an honors...

The Great Courses: Honors, or Just High School Credit?
Homeschoolers use lots of different resources, and one of the ones I’ve recommended in the past are The Great Courses.  With choices in science, mathematics, business and economics (just to name a few), many homeschoolers are utilizing these classes.  Parents have asked me whether the Great Courses should be considered AP Honor’s classes or high school level, but it really depends on how you utilize them. Obviously, the high school courses they offer are high school...

How Many Credits is a Gagillion Hours of Math?

How Many Credits is a Gagillion Hours of Math?
Dear Lee,I'm trying to update my son's transcript tonight.  So just in case you're watching your email and don't mind answering this... How many high-school credits should be awarded for Thinkwell's Pre-Calculus?  My son did all 344 lessons (both in the book and online), took every test, and ended up with an A for the year.  It took him the full year, and he spent easily more than 10 hours per week on it.  My son...

  • Logic as a High School Elective

    I have to confess, I was tempted to call this post "Logic for Dummies" but I was afraid you would know I'm not actually an intellectual. You see, I know that I could never possibly have taught logic to my logic-loving children without some help.

  • Highlight on High School History

    Many parents ask, "What is the difference between history and social studies?" or "Are social studies and history the same thing?" Those are good questions when it comes to talking about high school history.
