DVD 4 also includes an accreditation guide. The guide walks you through the process of using the DVDs as the backbone of a 1 year high school Chemistry course. This is a huge value add for this program! The guide is thorough and understandable, and it answered any questions I had about possibly turning this into a high school class for my kids in the future.
What We Thought of It
Because Nicky is only in 8th grade and is not taking Chemistry for any kind of credit yet, I just gave him the DVDs to watch on his computer at his leisure. I didn't have to tell him twice! As I mentioned, he loves chemistry. He loves learning about the periodic table. These DVDs suited his purpose perfectly. They didn't feel like school to him. While I did peruse the guide at length, I didn't use it with Nicky because I didn't want to make the DVDs feel like school to him. Right now I want to keep him in love with science. I can absolutely see using the guide in the future, though, as we work through the DVDs more rigorously.
I love the ease and versatility of The 101 Series and I definitely plan to check out more of their offerings in the future. To see their other products in use, be sure to click the banner below!
