I am looking into the possibility of enrolling my son in your online History class for next fall (2012). He will be 15 and in the 9th grade. He is currently doing TOG Year 1 this year. I've read through the LLC site, but would like further clarification. It is my understanding that the the History course is taught straight from the TOG history books and discussion questions. In addition, any literature books listed in the curr. would be read on the students own time and NOT discussed within the online course. Is it also correct that the only grade given by the instructor is a participation grade? Also, would it be likely that at the Rhetoric level the class could have students anywhere from the 9th to 12th grade in one class? I would appreciate any comments, opinions, strengths, weaknesses that can be given regarding these courses.
Thank you so much,
