Standard Deviants Accelerate Homeschool Review


Standard Deviants Accelerate Review
Hey neighbors!

Our homeschool reviews are winding down for the holidays.  Only a couple more and we will be done until after the New Year.  This time I was able to review the Homeschool Courses of Standard Deviants Accelerate.  If you are looking for online courses for your homeschooler, or just an added supplement, take a moment to learn more about Standard Deviants Accelerate.

Standard Deviants Accelerate Review

Once you have signed up to use Standard Deviants Accelerate you will have your own User Name and Password.  Under the My Desk tab, you will be able to add students and classes.  Each student can have their own User Name and Password.  This is also where you can check on their progress and grade written answers.  Once you have chosen the classes you would like your student to participate in, give them their sign in information along with a code you were given when you signed them up.  At this point they can sign in and begin their classes.

Your student may then sign in and proceed to whichever course they are supposed to work on.  For instance in when they click on American History, they are given different options like: American Presidents, Women's Movement, Civil Reform, etc.  When they hover the mouse over one of those topics, it is broken down even more.  American Presidents breaks down in to classes on approx. three presidents at a time, for example: Abraham Lincoln, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.

The next screen that pulls up has a text box with the transcript for the video.  The video is right next to the transcript box and they can follow along, reading the transcript as they listen to and watch the video.  Or they can do one at a time.  There is a box for taking notes that will be saved to their locker, another tab at the top of their screen.  After watching the video, there is also, Vocabulary, Diagram, Quiz and Written Answer.  Vocabulary, is exactly that.  Here your student will find definitions that they can both read, or hear read to them.  Diagram is extra work, to help learn about the video they just watched.  Quiz, is just that a quiz.  Written is where they will be given a question that requires  a written answer.  More than just a yes or no response is required.  All work will be saved in their Locker.  At the end of their Quiz, they can check how many questions they got right.  There is also an option to print off the transcripts, quizzes and such, but we chose not to.

Some of the videos seemed a little silly to her.  Since we were only using this a s a supplement it was ok, but not sure how we would feel of this was the bulk of her course.  I do like the ability for her to move along at her own pace.  It would also be could if the parent felt that they did not now enough about a certain subject.

The following is a list of available subjects:
Arithmetic (grades 3+)
Fundamental Math (grades 4+)
Earth Science (grades 6+)
Nutrition (grades 6+)
Biology (grades 7+)
Algebra (grades 7+)
Chemistry (grades 9+)
English Comp (grades 9+)
U. S. History (grades 9+)
AP Biology (grades 11+)
AP Chemistry (grades 11+)
AP U. S. Gov. & Politics (grades 11+)
AP Eng. Composition (grades 11+)

They do have a free 7 day trial available on the website, so you can try it out for your self and see what you think.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1.

This way you can get used to the culture, and will know in advance whether or not the country is somewhere that you’d actually like to live. 2. Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
