I know there are a couple of you that have tried Oak Meadow for the younger ages. I am curious if any one has tried any of their highschool materials?
My soon to be 11th grader is interested in their U.S. history. He has been using Mystery of History for the past 2 years. He loved it and wants something similar. Since MOH is not due to put the volume 4 stuff out until 2014, we are searching elsewhere.
I don't have the syllabus yet... I was able to pick up the textbook used on amazon. I like the way the sample was set up for scheduling. I'm still not sure if I need to call about the teacher guide or not.
Thanks for your input ladies!! We decided to go with All American History vol2 because it comes with an activity guide that has forms, maps and review questions. Plus, I felt that the material was covered a bit more in depth than the samples I saw for Oak Meadow.
I suspect, that if we had of been using Oak Meadow from the beginning, then it would be a no brainer to continue on : ) The transition for my very traditional type of learner would have been to rough. He likes things that are a bit more rigid. Not my cuppa, but I do want him to thrive with whatever my choices are for him.
I've heard it is great for HS, but no experience. If we continue our path, I expect to use it from 8/9th grade on.
