Announcements/Year 7 and 8 Lite Weekly Schedules
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.

Thank you Leslie. I've been working on our Year 8 Lite. One change I noticed was that the old schedule listed I Promessi OR Westward Ho! and I was thinking of having my daughter just read I Promessi. It looks like the new schedule has them reading Westward Ho! AND I Promessi. Now I'm questioning dropping Westward Ho!

Thank you,

More to the point, are there any other additions or subtractions to look out for or is it just shifting books around? Thank you again.

Before, there was a choice between Westward Ho or I Promessi Sposi. Now that I've seen the actual page counts, it's feasible to do both. I would suggest trying both, and if you need to cut back, drop down to one or the other.

The only other addition is selections from Rural Hours, or The Lay of the Land (which is actually listed for regular Year 7). The rest is just shifting books around.

Hi Leslie!

Can you please post (here in this thread) the links to the different ones that you are talking about here? The old and the new? Everything that I seem to find still has the "8.2013" date in the footer at the bottom of the page. 

Thank you!

I'll try to remember to change those dates. I always, always forget. [I want to hide my head under a bag!]

This is the new, improved Year 7 Lite schedule.

This is the older one:
http://www.amblesideonline.org/Lsch/b07Sch201707.shtml
(note that the url has the date in it: 2017 July -- I can remember to date the web address, but I can't seem to remember to change the little date at the bottom of the page...)

When you click on the graph/grid pdf or editable schedule from any of those pages, it will take you to the grid schedule that goes with that schedule.

Oh dear, the schedule for Twain's Joan of Arc didn't make it to the new Y7 lite: None at all on the odt chart or weeks 1-30 of the html list. The HTML list has both Joan books for weeks 31-36.

I like the changes though, since I had already added several of these regular Y7 books to my oldest son's lite schedule last year.

Oops, weeks 31-36 is a typo; I've just fixed it.

I hope to make a separate schedule for Twain's Joan of Arc. It will be a twelve week schedule, since Joan should stay in the last term of Year 7.

I think I might as well include the Twain as an option - we'd really like to encourage people to use that one, even though it is long.
