    Default Online Foundations of composition taken with chreia/maxim or other online comp?

    Has anyone ever taken the foundations of composition along with another online classical composition class like chreia/maxim? Assuming the grammar prerequisites can be met, I wanted to know if the workload is too heavy for both simultaneously. I know this depends on each child individually and what other courses are being taken. My daughter is in 8th grade and has completed the IEW B intensive course and fable/narrative composition. Also, has anyone done the chreia/maxim/confirmation/refutation combo that can comment on its workload? Thank you!

    I don't know anything about the foundations course, but I believe the difference between the Chreia only course and the combined Chreia/RefCon course is that the latter will move at a quicker pace with a paper due every week, whereas the former will have a paper due every other week. Hopefully Mr. Piland will chime in with a more definitive answer.

    My understanding is that foundations is a modified IEW with the level C materials. The combined Cheria/rec con is quite a bit of work. They review fable and narrative (maybe 2 lessons each - I donít remember exactly) then move into new material. They will cover both levels by the end of the year, but I always felt that she knew exactly what was expected as they started the paper during class time. My daughter took it a couple of years ago and my son is enrolled for fall. It will take a bigger chunk of time than the core plans allot to writing, but my daughter really liked the pace. It remains to be seen how well my son responds to the jump start to his system. He has been a bit lazy with respect to writing for mom. Grammar is incorporated in the class. I picked the combo class to get through the levels more quickly and because of cost/scheduling.

    Hello!

    It is not typical for students to take two writing classes at the same time. For most students this would be too burdensome.

    Thank you!
