anyone do year round schooling with multiple smaller breakers though the year, instead of 3 months in the summer?
hey yall i'm recruiting some people for the group BIBLE FUN FOR ALL/ feel free to join at your own risk
If I was to design a Christian homeschooling system, I would include the strengths of ACE, but add a detailed testing system to identify where a child has unique gifting, and then customize an advanced teaching programme to nurture those gifts.That would include creative fields such as art and music.It's interesting that Mozart was homeschooled, and had a musician father to teach him.Also Akiane Kramarik was mostly homeschooled, and is probably the greatest painter alive today.What do you think?
I did ACE (Accelerated Christian Education).It was the only one available at the time (late 80s) in Australia. We were among the pioneers.Looking back, the key strengths were:1. Heavy emphasis on Bible memorization. Key verses were learned, and printed on every page of every book.Also rewards were given for memorizing entire books of the Bible. The value of this is priceless.2. Goal system. You had to learn to set your own goals.3. The most important subjects, Spelling, English and Maths were designed very well. 4. Science had plenty of great information on the famous Christians who laid the foundations of Science (Newton, Faraday etc).5. Literature got us to read some of the best books outside the Bible. eg. Missionary biographies etc
The biggest drawback was the strong patriotism, which was irrelevant for us. But I suppose that could be a good thing for Americans.
It would be interesting to hear from anyone doing ACE now. They have probably updated the curriculum many times. We did mostly 2nd and 3rd editions.
I am just going to a Christian School. So I don’t do most of that stuff.
i have gotten used to it
Being the oldest, I was the guinea pig for curriculums. I have done Abeka, Landmark, Life Packs, Switched on Schoolhouse (computer) and Masterbooks. I might have forgotten one but that just shows you that I have done multiple. I have enjoyed trying new things. Getting used to a new curriculum can be difficult. I would have to say that my favorite was Masterbooks. Very good Christian foundation with lots of pics and good instructions. What curriculums have you guys gone through?
Hey guys. I am back. About Abeka I would completely agree with Question's explanation. I have done it and it is not for the faint of heart.
Do u like it?
A home school curriculum that is usually said to be more rigorous, so some people love it some people hate it
What is that?
