Re: Question about diplomas

Thank you all so much! You just really confirmed my thought that I don't really "need" to go through a diploma program. MFW already has the credits all mapped out for me, I just need to plug them in to a transcript and add our extras! Love it!

Re: Need alternative suggestion for Logic

Hi Dee, Nice to hear from you! I appreciated the book suggestion. I did purchase a book on transcripts at CHAP but I don't think it was by the author you mentioned. I will check and see if our library has it. I cannot believe that we are going into high school! We finished our school year officially...

Re: AHL is fabulous!

Thank you for posting this. We will begin AHL in August and while it looks and feels a little intimidating (and I am a long time MFW user) I am excited to be using it with my sons.

Re: Watership Down in High School

Thanks for your replies. Since it's not listed at all for high school, I may assign it for summer reading. We do something along the lines of they pick a book then I choose one for them during the summer.

Re: Ancient History and Lit with two students

Thanks for your replies! I was curious about the Ancient Lit supplement, whether or not it is consumable, so the info was helpful. I also read through some of the other threads and noticed that Julie mentioned making sure of the particular version of some of the lit books. I appreciate that as well....

Re: convention purchases

Every year I purchased the entire curriculum at the convention (CHAP) and then had to haul it for what seemed like forever back to my van :~ Last year I got smart and ordered it ahead of time and then just window shopped at the convention. It did make it easier for me.

I use the questions after my son has read the chapter. He does the vocab and first set of questions on his own. I just check his work on those sections.

Re: OT: Should service work count as school?

What a wonderful service opportunity for your family! I would like to find something like that to get involved in. I would most certainly count it as school. Our local Christian school has community service days and they are counted in their school days.
