    Modifying CC

    I would love ideas on how to do this as I get ready to try it with G.

    How will CC be modified for SC?

    If it isn't possible to do so, what have you done instead? With J, I used bits and pieces of Writing Skills by Diana Hanbury King.
    The Homeschool Grads:
    J- 6/96
    S- 11/98

    Still Homeschooling:
    G- 4/04
    D- 5/05
    F- 7/08 (my only girl)

    Future Homeschooler:
    M- 9/16

    Re: Modifying CC

    We are not there yet, but I often think about this! For now, you can plan to do this:

    1. Spend more time on a single course.
    2. Divide daily lessons in half to dig more deeply into new concepts, new vocabulary, and new writing.
    3. Teach early in the day.
    4. Write alongside your student, if possible, so you learn together.
    5. Use the DVD both to teach and to review.

    If you do not have enough years remaining to spend more time on each, be willing to be flexible with the pacing to master and then move forward. This might not require all of the lessons in Fable, for example, if you divide them into smaller bites and teach them well.
