    8th Grade - Greek II

    I saw Elementary Greek II listed on the pdf for 8th grade. We finished Greek Alphabet but have not purchased Elementary Greek I. Should we go ahead and purchase and begin over the summer and add Greek II when we complete Greek I or jump in with Greek II. Not really comfortable jumping in but I did not see Greek I added to the 7th Grade Curriculum package either. We are finishing 7th but could certainly start on Greek I over the summer.

    Also, will Greek I be added to the 7th grade package? I have 3 coming up on 7th so I would need to get the Teacher Guide portion related to scheduling. Thanks.

    (Anxiously anticipating complete 8th Package).

      Re: Greek

      Ingramgl,

      Just wanted to jump in and say you definitely need to do Elementary Greek I prior to Elementary Greek II. It is similar to the Latin Form series in that one can't really just jump ahead to the second year book.

      My kids used MP's Greek Alphabet book, followed by E.G. I & II.

      Hope that helps in terms of your planning?

        I also saw Greek II listed in the 8th grade plans and wondered whether Greek I will be added to the 7th grade package...

            Hello.

            Right now, Greek is only going to be optional in our curriculum packages. We feel like everyone may not be ready to jump into Greek alongside Latin, so we decided to make it optional. Elementary Greek is lesson planned out for you in the book, so it will be an easy add-on if you wish to do it.

            Regards,

            Tanya

              Will there be any American/Modern/Geography studies for 8th grade?

                Hello.

                Eighth grade doesn't have American/Modern studies. We have 2 years of American history in a high school history text in 9th-10th grades, and we have finished geography in 7th grade. By the end of 6th grade, students should be mapping the world fluently, and in 7th, we do a world geography course. In 11th-12th grades, we do 2 years of European/Modern history using a high school text.

                Regards,

                Tanya

                    Eighth grade is coming along, but it really is going to be closer to end of summer before we have it completed. We have teachers writing diligently, but as the content gets more difficult, it takes longer to complete. But we are moving forward!

                      8th Grade Curriculum Package

                      Hi guys, I saw on another post that one of the 8th grade literature guides may not be ready until Second Semester. I know in this post we are anticipating 8th grade package release end of summer time frame. Will the delayed literature guide hold up the release of 8th grade? Do we still anticipate late August for release? Thanks. (Truly appreciate all the hard work your team does).

                        Hello.

                        The delayed literature will not affect the release of 8th grade. We'll just backorder the Henry V study guide and send it on to you as soon as it is complete.

                        Regards,
