Educator’s Convention is held on 16th-17th April, 2018. The theme is Be Transformed. A team from SCEE will be attending. Educator’s Convention is an opportunity to meet other homeschoolers, school staff and myself. There will be a mixture of teaching and fellowship. This is a good opportunity to be re-inspired in your task as educators of your children. Venue is to be confirmed.
Ordering from SCEE
You will need to download the latest order forms from www.scee.edu.au which have the new prices on them. The forms are listed under the “Distribution” menu. The username to use is “de” and the password is “john146”. There is now the opportunity to do a web order. Instructions on how to do this are also in the “Distribution” menu.
Literature & Creative Writing Resource Books Library
Most of you know that you can borrow the resource books for Literature & Creative Writing from me for the cost of postage. At this stage all the Literature & Creative Writing Books are up and Basic Literature 7 and the secondary literature. There are also some of the resource books for some of the electives now up too plus some of the DVDs for hire. If you don’t see there what you need it is worth while for you to contact me as we don’t have everything there yet. You do not have to log in to www.homeeducationnz.co.nz to view the whole site, but if you are ordering books and want to register so you don’t have to fill in your details each time, you can do this. I do recommend that you keep your password somewhere safe as if you forget it, I don’t think I can find it for you. We’re still working out how that side will work but presume you would have to fill in a form to have your password emailed to you.
Upper Level Tests
In the upper level ACE courses the Self Test does not necessarily cover the material that will be tested in the PACE Test. Therefore to prepare well for these tests it is necessary to review the entire PACE. This warning is particularly relevant for Collectivism and History of Civilization I and II.
Maths Solution Keys
With the introduction of the 4th Edition PACEs and the new score keys there has also been a new addition which may be helpful to some of you. As well as the score keys there are solution keys. These can be helpful if you or your children get stuck with their Maths.
I have looked through the order forms and I cannot find them listed so if you wish to order them you should list them on the email to which you attach your order form.
These are the solution keys that are available along with their codes:
CEE406273 Maths 1073-1076
CEE406277 Maths 1077-1079
CEE406285 Maths 10851086
CEE406287 Maths 1087-1088
CEE406289 Maths 1089-1090
I have ordered a set of these so if you wish to view one or get stuck and need to see one urgently just contact me and for the cost of postage I will lend them to you.
Rosetta Stone Credits
Rosetta Stone Language Courses don’t count as SCEE/A.C.E. credits but they can be used as non-A.C.E. courses. Application for approval does not need to be sought for Rosetta Stone. Levels 1-3 are worth 1 credit and levels 4-5 are worth 2 credits. Hebrew is an exception as all levels are worth 2 credits. Students can earn a maximum of 4 Rosetta Stone credits toward each A.C.E. Certificate.
