It might be in the manual in the intro section as you look through each subject section. In general, I have found this guideline to work well with all of the mfw programs in the 5 year cycle. (this is mine and not mfw stuff).....MelissaM wrote:Can anyone give me a general idea of the definitions of younger students vs. older students in CtG? And what age/grade is meant to do the Advanced assignments? If this info is somewhere in the TM and I'm missing it, please just point me to it; I'm not seeing it anywhere. Thanks a bunch!
5th-8th - most likely about to do it. (however, crystal will admit that in CTG, her 5th grader didn't have to, but her 8th grader did.)
4th - give it a try with parent help, and play it by ear.
below 4th - not needed
For those CTG/RTR assignments.... (the monthly oral or written report from the chapter suggestions in Streams..... ) that's jr. high beef up. 7th/8th grade.MelissaM wrote:Thanks, Crystal - very helpful! Do you know if a 5th grader would be considered an "older student?" I've noticed some of the intro sections or some of the assignments (can't remember where I read it now...) have said, "If you have an older student you may want to consider having them..." and I'm not sure if I should be considering those things. Like the monthly reports for history or science? Stuff like that. Just trying to figure out goals and priorities, etc. Thanks so much!
