    Default Starting mid-year...how to set up a lesson plan w/o repeating already learned materia

    We live overseas and are taking our son out of the school here. I want to know how to set up a schedule for him for now until the end of the school year w/o having him repeat the same learned material. Any thoughts and help as to how to place him, etc.

    Thanks.

    There really is no way to "pick up where they left off" when changing curriculums or schools. Even in subjects where there are state standards and certain things that must be taught during certain school years, each school (and even each classsroom within the same school) will present the material in a different order.

    Some parents look at the scope and sequence and start their child a little below where they "think" they are working. Students can work at a different grade level in each subject. Then, they have the student take each chapter test BEFORE doing the lessons in the chapter. If they do well on the test, they do not do the lessons in that chapter. They move on and try the chapter test at the end of the NEXT chapter. If they do not do well on the test, they do the lessons and try the test again. In this way, the student is only studying material they have not yet learned and can usually proceed more quickly.
