Has anyone used Weaver for high school? I was thinking of starting it next year when my kids will be in 3rd & 8th grades, but, I have never seen their high school supplements. I like the samples that I've seen of the curriculum, but if I would have to add a lot for high school, it might not be worth it.

Thanks,
Janet W

I'm looking ahead to next year when my children will be 3rd & 8th grades. I think we would all enjoy switching to a Unit Study type curriculum, but I'd like to find something that will work with both children & that we can continue to use as my daughter starts high school.

I know Weaver has a high school supplement, but I've never seen how it's laid out. Any other suggestions?

We've never really done any modern history (post Civil War -now) and I'd like to do that 2nd semester before official high school next year. I am about to give up. I was on Lamplighter (?) website today and just saw their book list and thought that perhaps he could even just read some good books that covered this time period. I would like some discussion questions or something for when he is done to guide him. He reads well and understands what he reads well, but he did tell me a few months ago that he HATES reading books that are fiction. He will do it without complaining, but he hates them.

Hey, as you may be able to tell I'm researching grants and scholarships.

Just as a clue to anyone else who might be interested, there is a scholarship from Junior Achievement at, I think, www.ja.org

It requires that the student have participated in an afterschool program or JA Economics, and gives a scope and sequence somewhere on the site. Then they can submit an application for a fairly good-sized scholarship.

There's only one JA in NH and I had never heard of it, and our senior is maxed out with AP classes, but it might help someone else somewhere plan their economics requirement <g>

Vision Forum has their DVD set on sale right now for 1/2 price, and I was wondering if I used this could I count it as a high school level American Government class? Especially if I got the books along with it and assigned papers to my son? Consider also that this fall, we may well get some practical lessons in election campagning if our dear friend chooses to run for U.S. House of Representatives. (Our friend has been asked to pray about running for Rep. Jim Kolbe's seat. He's being actively courted from the White House down as a viable candidate. He's already the President of the State Senate, so this is a huge honor, but a very scary one!)

Any insights in how to do this? <or maybe it's an oxymoron to "develop self-motivation" ;-)>

Our oldest, who is in public school, is a typical first born and is very self-motivated.

Our next one, who is homeschooling, does work cheerfully. However, he has to constantly be nudged. I know that basketball is his motivation for grades. I'm wondering if just keeping on keeping on is the right thing to do....or if anyone has any other insights.

Dh has decided that he has to be "caught up" and stay caught up to try out for baseball. To do that, we'll have to follow through. It won't be pretty if it happens, but I think it's likely that it would never happen again. He has plenty of time to finish the small amount of remaining work and if he is faithful to the task at hand, he can easily stay caught up.

My 17 yo homeschooled daughter has been accepted for fall 06 at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. For some reason, the admissions office will give a $1000.00 scholarship, if she gives them the name, address and phone number of a Liberty graduate. They call this an alumnus scholarship, perhaps they send that person a card of something. Anyway, is there anyone who graduated from Liberty who would be willing to let her use their info? thanks

up our son's alley - we were talking about it - his first thought was about all of the times we are at the parks and they have the displays and information about "millions of years ago." How would he balance that? I know there are more types of jobs for the Park Service, but ds was thinking about that question.

Have they done apprenticeships, travelled, missions trip, family business, started working, started a business...or what else, if they didn't go directly to college after homeschooling?

One boy we know started apprenticing in high school to a maker of fine furniture. He never did go on to school; he loves what he does. He's married with kids now and is a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen (at least the last time I talked to his mom <g>)

I asked what a kid interested in math might be able to do, if he didn't want to teach. He was homeschooled through eighth grade and is a graduating senior (our first!)

His art teacher suggested teaching in a private school (laughing -- that was *understood*, I thought through all these months; they just don't think like adults).

Well, he just wrote an application letter to a Bible school and mentioned that while he doesn't know what he wants to pursue yet, he's interested in four large categories:

Math (engineering, teaching in a private school possibly, it's pure math that he likes, I think)
Law
Science
Business

I actually adore his letter [I should copy it and throw a copy in his 'baby box']; it's the most honest thing he's written since he went to public school <grin>.

He had to comment in the letter about how he sees the Bible school helping with his training for adulthood. He told them that he doesn't see them helping him academically at all, but since he doesn't know what he'd like to do, he thinks it might be a good first step.

We're hoping it gives him a year to ponder God's things Smile

Just wanted to share that I just finished previewing IEW's "High School Essay Intensive," and it's excellent. Looks like it will be a huge help to those who use it. Now I just need to figure out how to implement it w/a class... Many in our group are planning to take the SAT in Sept./Oct./Nov., so we might do it in August to get "warmed up."

I'm wanting a program to teach Spanish to my 14yodd. It would probably be preferable to have it on cd or dvd. My other children may or may not join in now (dh and I definitely will), but will go through it when they are a bit older. One plus is that we live in a border town where probably 95+% of the population speaks Spanish. We'll have ample opportunity to practice and become fluent.

If you could give pros and cons of the programs you've used, that would be great.

A lot of the TY's are discussing colleges, and it came to mind that a lot of you may be interested in attending a college fair in your city.

http://www.nacacnet.org/MemberPortal/Events/CollegeFairs/

gives you a searchable list of fairs all across the country (there are also fairs specifically designed for fine and performing arts). You can also search each fair's tables ahead of time to figure out if the college your student is interested in will be appearing.
