    Whenever I use the R level quizzes, I use only the first page of short answer questions. I don't have my students write essays every week. (We don't take quizzes every week either.)

    This past year I had one D and one R student. I found that usually I could combine the history discussions if I, the teacher, had prepared well in advance. That often meant not going in the same...

    I like using Fallacy Detective and Thinking Toolbox for my 7th and 8th graders. It's a pretty good introduction to arguments and just plain clear thinking and communicating in general.

    Personally, I don't start Easy Grammar until 3rd grade. I use English for the Thoughtful Child (not overly different from FLL) and I do hardly any writing until the child is reading really well. It's...

    Diane,
    If you check http://donnayoung.org/index.htm you will find some lesson plans there, too. I use Donna's to get me started but usually end up making my own to fit our own schedule.

    I emailed Winston Grammar and asked about the purpose of the pretest for the basic level. Here is the response I received:

    The pretest and posttest look very similar. My student couldn't do well on either the pretest or posttest. "Pretest" doesn't mean that you have to be able to do well on it to be placed in the basic...

    Winston appears to start at the beginning, so I wouldn't think it would matter what English program you have already completed. Again, I've not seen or used it; I'm just going from the descriptions...

    Kirsten,
    Have you looked at the samples on the Apologia website? If I remember correctly, the entire first module (chapter) is there so you can get a good idea what the book is like.

    I wouldn't agree that most of the info is repeated, but I do think you could skip general and go to physical if you are wanting to do biology next year.
