I rarely see him working on it as he does it first thing in the morning, but I know he is working on it because it often comes up in our conversation, particularly when we are reading another book. He'll pipe in with additional comments or say "correct me if I'm wrong mom, but _______________". I'll ask where he learned that and he'll say "Veritas Press told me".
I take him at his word unless it seems totally off and then that's what google is for right? 9 times out of 10 he remembers it correctly which I think is just marvellous. I do find it interesting how he will tell me, I don't remember much from the middle ages, but when the topic comes up in our reading, he remembers far more than he thinks it does...that tune they do is a marvellous aid in recall.
So what do we like about Veritas Press?
It's self-paced, full of history and humour, games and questions, quirky songs to help you remember information, and has optional projects to do.
I have to admit though... that lately the lad is asking if we can do Apologia. We're studying astronomy (it's an upcoming review) so stay tuned... I wonder which will win out in the end... won't be long till the end of the Crew Run when we have to pick our favourites for the year.. what will it be.. Veritas Press or Apologia???
Others from the crew will be writing on their favourite product as well so why don't you visit us RIGHT HERE. :)
