I chose this curriculum kit because my son needed the elective credit plus he loves auto mechanics.I have researched this curriculum many times and it seems to be the best one. Also, Rainbow Resource had the absolute best price.I researched that too.

Is this a half credit or full credit course?
User on May 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends. If you are able to do all of the activities, I would go 1 credit. For us, we did about 1/2 and so I gave 1/2 credit. Hope this helps.
What is covered on the Homeschool Resource CD? What benefit would there be to purchasing it?
User on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you plan on giving quizzes and exams, the CD contains them as well as the answers. It also has the answers to all of the study questions in the activity book. If you plan on using it in a co-op classroom setting, the CD has Powerpoint slides for each chapter.

      Q:I have more than one teenagerdo I need to purchase a kit for each one?

      A: No you don't. We recommend you purchase one kit and then an additional text (Item #: 055264 ISBN: 9781627020015) and workbook (Item #: 055265 ISBN: 9781627020022) for each student. The Homeschool Resource CD is there to help YOU as the instructor.



      _______________________________________

      Q:Could this course count as a 1/2 credit elective or a 1 credit elective?

      A: Auto Upkeep can be either a 1/2 credit or 1 credit course elective. The course covers 135 hours of instruction (18 weeks x 1.5 hours a day x 5 days a week). If you would like to run this as a 1/2 credit course, shorten the number of hours by reducing or eliminating the number of lab activities completed depending on your facility and available tools. Most activities can be completed with a limited number of tools. Some activities can also be completed more than once to extend hours of instruction, enhancing the student's skill set. For example one of the more important topics, "Fluid Level Check Activity" could be performed on multiple types of vehicles. The curriculum is flexible for you to adjust it to fit your needs. We have some parents that use it as a non-credit course to supplement their drivers ed curriculum. The great thing with the Auto Upkeep curriculum is that you can pick and choose from 32 activities on what you would like to cover.
