    Trimming/Cutting Chart for HISTORY?

    We like using the trimming/cutting charts Tapestry has provided for R level lit.
    It has helped us make yr 1 R lit more manageable for a 9th grader. Has anyone
    developed their own version of a trim/cut chart for history for yrs 1 and 2?
    I've been doing this myself for yr 1 so far by laying out the readings, AQ/TQs,
    and discussion scripts. But this is enormously time-consuming. I don't want to
    slash huge chunks out -- I just want to create a little more breathing room for
    my young R student for the rest of this year (and considering it for yr 2 next
    year).

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Monica,

    Have you thought about doing a history cutting chart by cutting out the weeks that you are familiar with? Ex. 1) If you are familiar with the story of Creation and you feel your students have a good grasp of it, cut it out completely or combine it with another week and do the two familiar weeks together. Only do history, lit., etc. for one of the weeks with a quick overview during lecture time for the week you are combining (week of Creation). Then move on to the actual week you are doing and complete your lecture time. Ex. 2) If you are familiar with the Jewish holidays then you can delete these weeks altogether. This will give you time to spread out the remaining week's assignments and make the year-plan more manageable.

    I hope this helps! Have a great day!
    God Bless,

    Thank you very much, Sharon. This is our 3rd time through year 1, but the first time with a rhetoric student. I did do as you suggested for a couple of the weeks at the beginning of unit 2. I'm finding it more diffucult to pick and choose for unit 3 because the topics are all so much richer at the R level than what we covered last time around at the D level. Decisions, decisions!

    I also found an old post of Marcia's in the LooseThreads Yahoo site files section on a way to condense unit 4 into 5 weeks. I'm not planning on condensing the weeks, but the suggestions are helpful to trim history for those weeks. We will continue to do the full load of literature and Bible survey assignments.

    Many thanks,
    Monica
