New! and Improved! Combo years 7/8 and 8/9

Announcements/New! and Improved! Combo years 7/8 and 8/9
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.

Are the new schedules on the AO curriculum page? Where do I find the old schedules? Top of what page?

It's wonderful the work you continually do to make AO better and better! I'm years away from this, but just seeing the thought and care that has gone into and continues to go into it gives me such confidence to continue with AO for the long haul, and such gratitude to you all.

Page 8 of the 36 week schedule for 7/8 has an error. Galileo is listed twice on the astronomers. I'm wondering if it should be Kepler that second time as it is on the original time table.

Yes, it's supposed to be Kepler. I'll fix that - thanks for letting me know!
