    I am planning to switch to SCM modules next year.

    We have been doing MOH which seems to be very different.

    After completing the 2nd volume it looks like we should be starting Module 4 on the second term.

    Could anyone tell me which books I will not need since we will skip the 1st term? That would be very helpful.

    Also why are there so many lessons to cover just one person ( e.g.Erasmus, Wycliff, Luther)? Is it because you read one book on each of those? If I already have living books on some of these is it easy to just replace w/the books I already have and keep following along w/the Modules?

    Sorry, that’s many questions but I don’t really understand how the Modules work!?!

    Should I contact SCM direcly to ask these questions?

    I would like to make a book list ahead of time for book sales and the conference.

    They have the books listed on the sample download online, complete with what terms they are used in. Just click ‘Download Free Sample”

    What ages/grades?  Will you be keeping your child(ren) reading on their age/grade level?  

    For example, we are doing this Module and my son is 12, technically in 7th Grade.  However, he is a recent public school escapee so I have had him read most books from the Grade 4-6 list, one (so far) from Grade 7-9 and then added some of the Grade 1-3 in here and there.

    I believe the multiple lessons per person involve the Louis Vernon titles, which are chapter books.  I am sure you could substitute with other books that you have.  I am having my son read Fine Print: A Story About Johann Gutenberg in place of Ink on His Fingers.  Mainly because due to family emergencies, we are behind.  To catch up, I plan on us reading shorter books or excerpts about the lives of the multiple lesson persons.  My son does Church History as a once weekly subject so I will add the Vernon title in later when he completes his current book.

    thank you both!

     I didn’t realise the books were listed per term, I thought it was a list for the whole Module.

    I will have a 2nd, 6th and 8th grader.

    I don’t think it is broken down in the sample, but I could be wrong.  I think there is only the Term 1 list broken out and then the total module list.  =)

    The only books I see carrying over from Term 1 are:

    Family Resources:

    -Famous Men of the Middle Ages

    -GOAL Bible Study

    -Around the World in a Hundred Years by Jean Fritz

    -Christopher Columbus by Bennie Rhodes

    -Uncle Josh’s Outline Map Book

    Grade 1-3:

    No carry-overs

    Grade 4-6:

    -Could carryover Adam of the Road or Door in the Wall (part of the book is scheduled in Term 1 and part in Term 2)

    Grade 7-9 and 10-12:

    -Book of Centuries

    -Life in the Word (SCM)

    -Discovering Doctrine (SCM)

    thank you!

    We are reading Adam of the road now. We’ll be able to skip a couple things…
