Seventh Grade Resources
I must say that I feel that the charter school experience was one that I felt worth repeating this year, that is until we discovered the methodology of the new administrator. As you can imagine, I elected instead to have my girls return home in October. I think that you will find my schedule is less intensive this year, and my postings shall resume, and hopefully prove to be just as beneficial as they have been to others as they are also to me.
At this juncture, I felt that the history studies through to about the 1500’s were covered sufficiently for us to begin an early modern study. Please look for this post and schedule in the future. As you know, I tend to deviate greatly from the normal approaches. I took a more unschooled approach to history this year by using research and reading while maintaining those classical techniques that I have come to depend upon and love.
