Hello SCM families!
We are currently homeschooling our family in 5th, 8th, and 10th grades using a different curriculum. We were looking at possibly switching to SCM for our new school year, but definitely need to take my high school dd’s requirements into consideration. She has done Medieval History for 9th, then World History for 10th (currently doing). She now needs a U.S. History credit, as well as one for government/economics, which I was planning on Notgrass for the latter. I am wanting to keep my family using subjects together as much as possible, with the exception of the obvious math, language arts, etc. Would it be suggested that we begin with Year 5 in the history cycle (Early Modern & the Epistles)? Also, would the last 2 years in the history cycle count for 1 full U.S. History credit or 2? Thank you in advance for any advice/suggestions you all are willing to share. God bless!
I don’t have any high school students in my family yet, but I remember reading this article and thinking it had some useful links. I don’t think this will answer your specific questions about SCM History Module 5, but maybe it will steer you in the right direction 🙂sherazParticipant
Sonya has explained that Module 5 & 6 cover both American and World History together, so each module counts as 1/2 credit of American and 1/2 credit of World. You would need to cover the information in both to have 1 full American credit and 1 full world credit. You can always choose to leave the world history alone and just concentrate on American history if needed.Jackie BetancourtParticipant
Thank you both for your helpful information! I do remember reading something about modules 5 and 6 covering the full American History credit, but cannot find the thread as I’ve searched for it. This is something for me to go on at least. To add to this initial discussion, I wonder about adding my 9th and 5th grade children into the mix, since I’d like to keep the family learning together (on different levels, of course). Would it be alright to begin my 9th grade dd in American History? If so, would it mess up the order, since she’ll then go back to Ancients in 11th grade, or does that really matter? I just see a lot of high school curricula out there that suggest American/U.S. History to be done in 11th and 12th grades, most likely due to having to finish government/economics. Suggestions? Thanks again!JenniferParticipant
I don’t think it matters personally. A lot of people suggest Government and Economics during their senior year, but we did it this year in 9th and 10th. As long as you get the History in there I do not think it matters much
