    Default scope and sequence

    I love the way the scope and sequence is written... in English!

    My question is... what is it used for? ...Besides using it to report what was covered during the year for formal reporting. I can tell by looking at my family and friends that my kids work is up to par and beyond.

    Is this something parents ask for?... Is this required in other states.

    Default scope and sequence

    We've had an increasing number of parents ask for a better way to see the upcoming lessons. Previously, parents would just look at the upcoming lessons the same way the children would.

    The scope and sequence that we are putting up should help parents plan. Its give the lessons that correspond to each unit. So far, we have over half of the language arts and math scopes and sequences put up. We are having some issues with formatting so be patient with us.

    For parents to use the scope and sequence as part of an overall way of looking at upcoming lessons and student progress:
    - parents can first print-out the scope and sequence that they are interested in
    - to preview the upcoming lessons, the parents should login as a child and put the activity number (the LA) into the activity finder on the Launch page.
    - to see the report on lessons done and progress, the parent should login as a parent and look at the reports. For instructions, look at the hints.

    Default Scope and Sequence

    I know in my home state of Virginia we are asked to submit the scope and sequence for the grade level we are teaching when we submit our letter of intent to homeschool. I'm not sure about other states but this is a part of the mumbo jumbo to appiese the school board. I want to add to all of you thinking about homeschooling in Virginia that the school board does not have the right to approve or deny your rights to homeschool even though it may sound that way in the wording of their requirements. If you educate yourself the only thing to fear is fear itself.
