So after ruminating for the last month on how to plan my history cycle AND get my high schoolers the credits our PSP requires I think I may finally have it. Maybe. I may be able to have it all bwahahahaha…. I think if I stick with the six year SCM cycle, which is my dream, but have my oldest do “American” on the side I can make it work. I only have 4 years with my daughter so I will have to start the cycle at Rome to get the American history credits she needs, and my 6th grader will get everything in the right places, or close enough to make it work. He will hit EM in 8th but I will have to apply those American history books to a 9th grade credit, which I think I can get away with. So hooray! Of course my poor oldest will be doing the Rome and the EM together, then the Middle ages with Modern. But I think I can make it work if I massage some of the books into a literature or Bible credit and do some as read alouds. I have to remember I am trying to educate them, not earn points. I first need to decide what ideas I want to live in their hearts and minds, then turn that into the credits they need. I have been thinking backwards. Ultimately the credits don’t really matter. I appreciate everyone’s help working this out, it has been agonizing – especially for all y’all reading my nonsense.Wings2flyParticipant

I’m glad you figured out a plan to work out, and you got your priorities straight. I have been thinking about the same thing lately with my oldest in high school. But you put it better than I could have. Thanks.
