Do you have current plans to develop and eventually offer high school levels of Moving Beyond the Page? Are there any plans in the works? We'd love to continue on with this awesome curriculum beyond the 12-14 level. MBtP is a perfect fit for our family. Thanks!
Vicki K c e
Jennifer,

I'm glad to hear that you find MBTP such a good fit for your family! We do have plans to develop curriculum at the high school level, however, we do not have a specific time line for the completion of those levels.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,
Vicki

Hi Melanie,

We are currently working on our high school program. We plan to have the first courses available by Fall of 2017.

As it looks right now, we are on track to release our first social studies and language arts courses in 2017. I am not sure about science at this point, but we should know more by later this summer.

High school 1 semester 1 is viewable on ideashare. Doesn't give info but does list the topics that will be discussed.

I'm with Rebecca, I would love to see more information on the high school lessons. Especially ninth grade.
Megan B c

I have a while before mine are in high school levels. But I do have family and friends that are waiting to see what it is going to look like before they commit.
Rebecca G c

The ideashare only has social studies so far. I was hoping to get an idea for literature as well. We will be finishing up 12-14 this year and I'm starting to look at options for next year.
Vicki K c e
Hello all,

We do anticipate releasing our first level of high school language arts for the fall of 2017, but as of right now it looks like we will not have the first social studies level ready in time for the fall. We now have the first English unit on Idea Share. I hope that helps! :)

This is so exciting, that you are working on High school levels. We have had such a great experience with your curriculum, and our oldest is heading into 9th grade in 2017. Anxious for any and all material you could provide!

Hi, I am a NYS certified teacher in Biology and Chrmistry. I now live in Maryland and would like to homeschool students in this subject area. I taught in public and private schools for seven years and currently do private tutoring. Do I need to go through special credentialing to home school students in the sciences ? Do the parents just get credentialed and they outsource to me like a private tutor? TIA, new to this.

Hi,
Do you think that by fall 2018 you'll have a full high school curriculum ready? We are on the age 12-14 at the moment and love this curriculum very much.
Thanks for your time,
Mary

Robyn, I currently live in Maryland and Homeschool. Maryland does not allow homeschooling through private tutors. However Virginia and Pennsylvania do if you are close to one of those borders. :)

edit to add: You will need to be certified to teach in whichever state you plan to be teaching in!

Hello! I just wanted to check on the progress of the history and science high school units. Any updates as to when they will be ready for purchase?
Vicki K c e
Hello,

We do anticipate on releasing our first level of high school history this coming fall. We will continue to build our high school offerings, but I don't have a timeline on those additional levels yet.

Thank you,

We have used MBTP for nearly a decade. Now we're at the HS Level and MBTP has only the LA available. Does anyone have any recommendations for Science and Social Studies to hold us over until MBTP HS level Science and Social Studies is available?
Thank You!
Debbie J c

Thank you! I'll look into those options. Hopefully MBTP will have HS SS ready by this fall.
Desria S c

Do you anticipate adding a new level each fall? I have a rising 9th grader and want to verify that I can continue to use it each year.
Vicki K c e
Hi Desria,

Unfortunately, our High School offerings are developing a little slower than we had first anticipated. We will continue to offer our first level of High School English, but our Social Studies is now planned to be released Fall 2019. We will continue from there, but I don’t have a timeline at this point.

Please let me know if I can answer any further questions.

Thank you,
Vicki

Hello,

The first level of social studies will be World History. After this level is finished, we are planing levels that cover United States History and then a level on Civics and Geography.

High school levels ? What is happening with these? We are having to use our charter school 9th grade curriculum and worried this isn't going to work as well this coming year. If it doesn't I'll be dropping everything and using Mbtp.
Keith H c e

Hi Carolyn,

Our high school curriculum is coming out slower than we would like. We currently have one level of language arts (that can be used for either 9th or 10th grade), and we are working on our first level of social studies. We are targeting next summer for its release, but we will keep you updated on our progress as we get closer to spring time.

Hi Vicki, is Social Studies for High school level considered World History? I'm wondering how to plan around its release. Thanks!
Keith H c e

Hello,

Our first high school curriculum for social studies will be World History. Our plan will be to follow that up with a course on American History, but we don't have a release date estimate for that yet.

We are thrilled with the current high school language arts program. When will the next level of language arts be released? I'm ever so hopeful to continue with MBTP through all 4 years of HS, as there is nothing out there that quite compares...
Keith H c e

Hi Roxanne,

Thank you for your kind words about our high school language arts program. We are really proud of it. Unfortunately, you are not going to be happy with my response and schedule. We are just in the early stages of outlining the next level of language arts, and our current plan is to release the next level in 2020. I know that is not what you wanted to hear, and that it won't help you out at all if you are currently using the high school level. As you can imagine, it is a herculean effort to release an entire level of high school curriculum, but we are working as diligently as we can to get another one out there.

Keith

PS. I am going to forward your message to our writers. They love the curriculum they wrote, and it is always nice to hear that someone else does too.

ANGELA B c e

We do not currently have a High School Social Studies curriculum. I know there were plans to resume writing High School Language Arts and start writing High School Social Studies for the the coming year, but with the pandemic, I know things have slowed down. That means I don't have a date on that for you at this time.

Angela D c e

We hope to release more language arts levels starting in the Fall of 2022. There are also plans to start adding social studies. We cannot make any firm commitments on more high school at this time. (I have two daughters completing 7th grade at this moment and would love for there to be more as well.)

Can you possibly tell me where you saw the info about a potential LA2 release? I love this curriculum and and to the point where we're ready for LA2. I've tried to look at other curriculums but they just aren't comparable.

Hi James! While there are plans to write High School 2 Language Arts, we are not ready to share those plans or even tentative release dates at this time. Thanks for loving MBTP!

We have no concrete plans for any more high school content at this time. I know this is disappointing to those who have used our curriculum over the years (my two daughters are in ninth grade now) and we apologize for the inconvenience.
Kimberly K c

It is understandable that plans change.

However, would you all be able to make a more public announcement about this? I know several people holding out hope and it only seems fair to inform them with the same level of publicity that was given to saying more high school would be coming over the last several years.

Hello,

Thanks for reaching out to us. I am sorry about the lack of communication around our high school language arts plans. We do still have plans for our second level of high school language arts, but we don't have an estimated release date for this curriculum yet. We are currently in discussions with an excellent curriculum developer that is interested in working on this project, and we just need to get a commitment on the timing. I am hoping for the summer of 2024, but as Angela mentioned, we don't have a concrete plan at this point. We will let announce more details when we have them.

Keith, I was wondering if you had any more news regarding the creation of more high school content? I've got a 7th grader this year, and we would LOVE to see more content created from Moving Beyond the Page for her 9th grade year. 

Keith H c e

Hi Regina,

We have a writer picked out for our second level of language arts, but we don't have a schedule yet. I am hoping that we can have more concrete plans by later this fall. Right now we only have one full year of language arts that can be used in either 9th or 10th grade. I think that we can have a second level of language arts in time for your 7th grader.

So what's the deal with high school level? I'm looking through the posts on this forum and one MBTP  says they have a writer working on it. Another says no plans to continue. Are you saying this because you don't want to lose customers up until 12-14???? MBTP families need to know what's going on. Thanks

Keith H c e

Hi Melissa,

I am sorry for all of the confusion that we have had around our high school levels. We do plan to build out at least one more level of language arts for high school, and we are considering social studies as well. We have at various times had writers committed to the project, and then they were either moved to different projects or have moved on themselves to other opportunities. 

At this time, we don't have a writer committed to the project, so we are not able to give you a timeframe for when we will have additional high schools levels. 

Our middle school levels are designed to prepare your students for high school level courses. This is true whether you utilize any high school programs that we offer, or something different. 

Again, I am sorry for any confusion we have fostered around our development of high school curriculum. It comes  solely from an enthusiasm to develop even more excellent curriculum, and in this case we got ahead of ourselves.

Keith
