I think it's more a case of Ocean of Truth being more readily available. It seems that Ocean of Truth is the one that almost everybody is actually using, including many of the Advisory. But there's nothing wrong with the Tiner one.

The new Issac Newton bio in AO4.
For those just beginning Y4, where does this new addition fit on the schedule?

Oops, nevermind!  I see it on the chart schedule now!  [cheesy grin]

(03-22-2017, 10:28 AM)Hi! Im in term 3 year 6 for my son. Should i make him read odysseus right after the Iliad? LeslieNoelani Wrote: [ -> ]We made a few changes to our schedules for Year 4, 5 and 6:

In Year 4:
Ocean of Truth/Isaac Newton was added (this is where he fits historically)

In Year 5:
Halliburton (or Hillyer) was scheduled at one chapter per week instead of two.
Passion for the Impossible was moved to free reading, and
Of Courage Undaunted and Carry a Big Stick were spaced out more slowly to fill in that extra term.
Alexander Graham Bell and GW Carver were spaced out slower to fill the term Isaac Newton vacated.

In Year 6:
Missionary Travels was removed except as an option for those who can't get Halliburton/Hillyer
Halliburton/Hillyer still starts in Year 5, but continues into Year 6, terms 1 and 2
Vautier Golding's David Livingstone book is scheduled in Term 3
School of the Woods was moved to free reading;
The Sea Around Us was spaced out over the whole year.
The Iliad moved to Term 2 so that The Odyssey could be added to Term 3.
We scheduled a retelling of the Iliad/Odyssey rather than the original.

The old schedules are still linked, and no new books were added (except The Odyssey, which has a free ebook option). It's more of a slight shuffling than a real change.

The grid chart schedules haven't been updated yet, but should be updated in the next day or two (thanks to Kathy!) Even after that happens, you'll still be able to access the old weekly schedules and their grid charts. The link will be at the top of the current (newer) 36-week schedule.
Would he/could he do it as a free read over the summer with a good retelling of it? That's what I would do.
So what if I accidentally ended up with both of the Isaac Newton options? :-)
