Re: Skills needed for AHL?

Thanks!
As far as completing at least half of WWS, I'm assuming they mean the first half? Thanks!

Skills needed for AHL?

Hello, I'm wondering what skills would need to be in place for a student to be ready to begin AHL for 9th grade? This would be for a student that is not coming from a MFW background.
I'm especially interested in writing skills/English. Thanks!

Re: National Geographic, God's World

Hello, We get the Kids version of Nat Geo and my kids really enjoy it. It's secular, obviously, but there hasn't been any questionable content so far. The issues are heavily animal-based, but also include articles about different areas of interest found around the world. I would describe the magazin...
