Weekly Wrap-Up: In Which We Plow through School!

Friday, October 22, 2010

We have really stayed on top of everything this week.  For some reason we have been extremely focused and got a tremendous amount of work done.

I continue to look through materials for high school. This week I stumbled on TRISMS which is a research-driven unit study program that incorporates history, literature and composition. I am seriously considering this for Zach for high school.  I like the fact that everything is combined and that the writing program that they use is Institute for Excellence in Writing which is what we have used for many years!  I am hoping to get my hands on a copy of this program to at least take a look at it before we buy.  Has anyone had any experience with TRISMS?

So looking forward to this evening, Tim and I get an date night without the boys as they both have activities to go to! I love when it all works out like that!

I have not heard of TRISMS, but I'm looking forward to reading your assessment. It looks intriguing! Is is specifically for high school, or could it work for middle school, too?

TRISMS looks interesting! It looks a lot like A World of Adventure by Dorian Holt, that we are using for our 8th grader. It also has Literature, Language Arts, History, Science, Fine Arts that are all interrelated. It makes everything we do seem so relevant!
