    Becky,

    I understand your concern. I would advise you not to let any book go to your LG students (or even UG for that matter) without at least skimming through it first. This is something that...

    Hi Teresa,

    My kids have always appreciated using the textbook/spines. It helps them tie the loose ends together and see the big picture from week to week. Also, if we have something unexpected...

    Lisa,

    Just a little clarification. You can make a note on your transcript that the class was taken at the community college.

    My two oldest each did a year at a local Classical Christian...

    Hi Lisa,

    First, I want to state that I have not had a child take a course at a CC for high school credit. I have graduated two from my homeschool and sent them to college so I do have a couple of...

    Mrs.Moore,

    Thank you for a great and helpful review! My children are now all past the LG stage now, but I remember being frustrated at times because there were not more reviews like this on the...

    I am certainly not going to argue with Marcia, but I did have a thought in another direction. Does your rising 9th grader really need to start Rhetoric level the first semester? Why not make the...

    Bishop Ussher's The Annals of the World is a fabulous resource. I have used it as spine with my three oldest children while covering ancient history. He calculated dates based on the chronologies...

    I think Pat has a very good point. Each family must find what is right for them, and for each child in the family.

    My family uses ToG very differently than many other families. I now actually...

    Hi,

    A couple of thoughts on this. My oldest was in 12th grade the year I discovered ToG. Because of what he needed we did Year 2 that year. My second oldest finished up two years later with Year...

    I have the 5th edition and by using the topics on the reading chart it has been relatively easy to match up the readings. They are usually not more than a page or two off. I turn to the page listed...

    Sammy,

    I would agree whole-heartedly with Pat. I might take it even further since you are working with very young children and suggest the Westminster Shorter Catechism (in modern English here )...

    Hi,

    Are you saying that your library has the original book that matches the SAPs you have? Why not just go with that?

    Even though I used Y2 Redesign this year, I still pulled some books and...

    Cynthia,

    I had a similar situation with my 13 y.o. (8th grade) daughter this year, primarily because she had read all of the DI literature previously, quite a few of them many times.

    So I...

    The assigned readings in ToG do focus primarily on the history of the west - after all that is our history.
    However, I have always added readings from the books I have to cover the other parts of...

    Hi,

    The first thing is to relax and look at writing as an enjoyable experience, for all of you.

    You said your oldest has some issues, so the first thing is to assess where he is. Does he have...

    Bonnie,

    I felt Beowulf would be the best, just for pleasure reading, but I ran it past my 19 y.o. daughter, who loved ToG just to make sure. She agreed - the best story of the bunch is Beowulf. ...

    I would think that perhaps the simplest thing to do would be to list the ISBN for each book. Then one could search at Amazon.com, any of the used book markets, or even their local library for the...
