    You might like to hear this, then, too. My 5M plans, even though they have the 33rd week scheduled, are really 32 weeks plus the dribs and drabs to finish everything in week 33. It looks like "32 weeks plus finals".

    Even better. Thanks! I'm feeling more and more excited about next year's plans.

    RunnerJoy's idea of doubling a lesson or two early on is one that's worked well here, when we need to shorten something (usually an outside course that we import into our MP work -- those are often 36 weeks).
    That's good news. I'm wanting to switch to more MP this year, and I'm very tired of 36-week curricula. I'll use RunnerJoy's idea if I need to, but I'm hoping it won't be necessary.

    My 3A Guide has LC at 33 Weeks.

    I wanted to offer this as an option too. If you do run into a subject that has more weeks than you desire to work, you could plan on doubling up lessons for one or two weeks early in the year so you don’t have to extend your school year. Just something to consider.

    Traditional Logic I - 15 weeks
    Traditional Logic II - 19 weeks
    Geography I - 32 weeks + final exam
    FMOR - 32 weeks + final exam
    SWO F - 30 weeks of lessons + 3 weeks of review

    I don’t have Geog III plans on hand; nor do I have the one year pace of LC. Anyone else got those?

    In the primary years there are a few levels that run 34 weeks though not every subject is continued that long. Most finish in 33.

    I guess what I really need to know is: Are there any lesson plans for more than 34 weeks? I've been doing this awhile and know that 34 weeks of actual lessons is our max. And I like to finish things.

    How many weeks do I need to finish a year-long set of lesson plans? Are they all the same? Is it the same number of weeks for elementary courses as it is for high school courses? I'm just trying to plan next year's school calendar.
