Are you afraid that doing the CTG high school would add a year to his high school by postponing needed history and government?gressman9 wrote:I already talked to David....but I wanted your opinion too....my oldest is 15...soon to be 16. He is a sophomore. For history he has studied world history. Technically he needs American history/government/economics for the rest of highschool.
David had mentioned that he could try the Ancients next fall.....and then skip the world history and do the American which should be piloted by then. BUT....we would end up adding a year to his highschool....at least for history.
Why am I considering it? Well....I don't think he was taught to think very critically this year. I am assuming that MFW highschool is better at this. Also....I am switching everyone else.... So....I am not really sure what to ask....other than what would you do? Would you make the change?
Is there a way to piggy-back histories. He should have a pretty good idea how the entire picture of history works. He could do the MFW high school, maybe with some "streamlining" and perhaps work through a "lighter" USA high-school history text by ... some company or another.
Just an idea. It's hard when a good company like MFW is in the pilot stage. You can't just tell your child, "Look I know what the birth certificate says but you must remain 14 for three years while I wait for the piloted version to come out. Then you can enter 9th grade. Sorry about that."
