  Year 6 Bible Change
Posted by: lklivingston - 10-16-2019, 07:55 AM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

We've made a change to Year 6 Bible.  Year 6 is a transition year in the Bible schedule, with the NT readings from Year 5 continuing into Year 6 while the OT starts the cycle the continues into the upper years.  The New Testament readings in Year 6 ended after just a few weeks in Term 2, most of which focused on the early chapters of Acts.  So we've scheduled the first part of Acts, up to the beginning of Paul's missionary journeys (and the point where he becomes Paul instead of Saul).  Of course, you are free to use the old schedule or your own schedule.  These Bible readings are just an option.  But this keeps the amount of reading more consistent across all three terms.

Posted by: lklivingston - 03-11-2019, 07:52 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (1)

Have you seen the "new" *official* AO brochure?  It's actually been linked from the website for quite awhile, but I don't think we ever announced it.  You can find it here:
https://amblesideonline.org/

Look for the link on the right, where it says, "Downloadable tri-fold brochure."

Be sure to open the file in Adobe Acrobat, and set it to print in Landscape and at the Actual Size.
If your printer duplexes, then select Flip On Short Edge.

  Christmas Break 2018
Posted by: lklivingston - 12-11-2018, 03:02 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (17)

This is a VERY important announcement regarding our 2018 Christmas Break: The AO Forum and Facebook group will take a restful Holiday Break beginning on Saturday, December 15. We'll re-open the forum again on Charlotte Mason's birthday, Monday, January 1, and re-open the Facebook chat group on Monday, January 7. Thus, the Forum will be closed to posting for two weeks, and our Facebook group will be closed for a three week period.

Why are we taking this break? The CM method is about more than homeschooling; it's about life and relationships. We would like our AmblesideOnline family of members, moderators, Auxiliary and Advisory to step back from lessons and computers, and take time to savor the holidays with their loved ones.

Should you need AO information during the break, existing threads will remain available at the forum, and of course the AmblesideOnline website will remain up and running.

We encourage you all to explore AO's special Holiday pages during the break!

The Advisory's Favorite Holiday Stories and Poems:
http://www.amblesideonline.org/HolidaySt...oems.shtml

Holiday Carols and favorite CDs:
http://www.amblesideonline.org/HolidayCarols.shtml

And a Bonus!

An Advisory member's son, a "guinea pig" graduate, composed chorale music for a Chesterton Christmas poem, performed here by Milligan College: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZKH5GO9LGs

An AO graduate created this lovely collection of traditional music for Christmas, beautifully arranged for violin: A Violin for Christmas (affiliate link; mp3 download) http://amzn.to/1OmsPB8

May you find time to reflect on the meaning of Christmas, enjoy time with those you love, and be refreshed as you anticipate the coming year.

We wish you a Merry Christmas!

  Important News Re: PayPal & #AOCM2019
Posted by: Donna-Jean - 11-01-2018, 10:42 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (19)

Hi all!

What an exciting morning!  Spots are filling up fast and furious!

One way you can help us: if your PayPal e-mail address is different from *your* e-mail address, can you note that on the form?  We are having some trouble lining up your payment with your e-mail confirmation, since we don't recognize your e-mail. 

If you have gotten a confirmation already, all is well. If not, and you have two different e-mails involved, could you send us an e-mail with "Lining up my Paypal e-mail" in the subject line?

And if you are about to register and your PayPay e-mail address is different from *your* e-mail address, please note that in your form, OK?

What a morning!

  Forgotten password?
Posted by: Phyllis - 01-17-2018, 12:04 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (2)

I wanted to make a video to show how to recover a lost password. I kind of did, but it has no sound or text, so I doubt that it will be helpful. But for those who like visuals, here it is.


In words, though:
If you forget your forum password, please don't panic! I know it can seem like the end of the world to be stuck without the forum, but we will get you back in, probably even today. :) If not today, then tomorrow for sure.

So, you've forgotten your password. At the place to log in, click the option that you've lost your password, and input your email address. When I test this, I get an email right away, but some people have reported delays of up to 10 minutes, so you can go wash some dishes or something. :)

Then check your email. Click the link in the email. [Take another break from the computer, if necessary.]

Check email again. Copy the randomly generated password. Paste it in on the forum. You should be back in.

If you're not, write to amblesideonlinemoderators@gmail.com.

  Year 10 Lite Updated
Posted by: LeslieNoelani - 07-21-2017, 02:23 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Same as with the other Lite Years, some priority books and historical documents were swapped out, and page counts were used to even out the terms.

Year 10 is a hefty year, as so many classics were written during this period, and there was a lot going on historically. But I think Year 10 Lite achieves a nice balance of including the most necessary texts while still being manageable.

At the top of the Year 10 Lite schedule page, there's a link to access the old schedules.

That completes changes to the Lite Years. There are no immediate plans to work on Year 11 Lite.

  New! and Improved! Combo years 7/8 and 8/9
Posted by: LeslieNoelani - 07-19-2017, 08:28 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (19)

Having new improved Years 7, 8 and 9 Lite schedules means everything needed was available to make some improvements to "Years 7-8-9 in Two Years." [Whoopee! smilie] The three improvements:

Higher priority books from each year were used so the schedules are more solid.

More books were kept in their own timeframe -- spread out within their own historical era, but there's less bleeding over across the schedules.

Access to page counts! These combo schedules are a little more reading than if you took the full three years to do year 7, 8 and 9, but they're still on the light side as compared with what Charlotte Mason's students were doing.


The old schedules are still available for the 2017-2018 year since some are already using them. There's a link at the top of the page of the new schedule -- it will take you to the old schedule, which is linked to the old charts.

  New! and Improved! Year 9 Lite
Posted by: LeslieNoelani - 07-14-2017, 12:11 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (2)

Years 7 and 8's Lite schedules were recently spruced up a bit to even out the readings over the terms.

Year 9 Lite had more of an overhaul. The books that were considered integral to the year were added in, some other books were removed to make room for them, all while keeping to a strict page count of 1900 pages per term. Speeches and historical documents were lined up more accurately to where they belong historically, and many books were spread out to take them more slowly and reflectively.

Just like Years 7 and 8 Lite, the old schedules are still available by clicking a link at the top of the page.

Yes, we plan to do the same for Years 10 and 11 Lite, but I can't say when that will be. I can't even say that it will be before September (sorry!)

New weekly schedules for Year 8 Lite and Year 7 Lite have been uploaded.

The page counts for planning AO 2.0 helped to configure the weekly schedule so that the terms are more evenly balanced.

The old schedules are still available for the 2017-2018 year since some are already using them. There's a link at the top of the page of the new schedule -- it will take you to the old schedule, which is linked to the old charts.

Year 9 Lite will be next.

  AO for Groups is Here!
Posted by: LeslieNoelani - 07-01-2017, 12:35 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (69)

   

The AO Advisory is happy to introduce AO for Groups, a curriculum plan that translates the rigor and beauty of AmblesideOnline into a new format, streamlined specifically for use in group settings.

Lots of our AO friends have been dreaming out loud, and we've been listening. Many of you dream of the camaraderie and organization of a homeschool co-op-- but only a Charlotte Mason co-op will do. Others have a vision for starting a cottage school that uses Charlotte Mason methods and materials. And so many of you use AmblesideOnline with large families and long for a way to group similar ages together.

AO for Groups groups students in Form 1 (grades 1-3), Form 2 (grades 4-6), and Form 3 (grades 7-9). (High school is still in the planning stages.) With its deep roots in the tried-and-true AmblesideOnline curriculum, which has been used by thousands of students around the globe for almost twenty years, AO for Groups preserves the high standards and rich feast of ideas you've come to expect with AO. And in keeping with our passion for making a Charlotte Mason education possible for every child, the AmblesideOnline Education Foundation provides the AO curriculum plan and the AO for Groups curriculum plan online free of charge.*

For details, click here:
http://www.amblesideonline.org/Groups.shtml

*AO and AO for Groups are available for use according to the terms of our License Agreement. Free curriculum plans do not include books and materials.
