Apologia Anatomy and Physiology Schedule

26 Jul

Some of you out there may not know how to schedule things, or may not be sure how to break down this book, may not like other schedules you have found, or just might not have the extra time to sit there and figure it all out. I figured, in case anyone is interested, I’d post how I chose to schedule Apologia’s Anatomy and Physiology book for this school year. Basically I figure out how many weeks each chapter should or can take, and then figure out how to best work those time frames for each chapter (lesson) into our schedule for the weeks we have.

Here is how I broke down this book by chapter:

Chapter 1 – 2 weeks
Chapter 2 – 3 weeks
Chapter 3 – 2 weeks
Chapter 4 – 2 weeks
Chapter 5 – 2 weeks
Chapter 6 – 2 weeks
Chapter 7 – 3 weeks
Chapter 8 – 3 weeks
Chapter 9 – 2 weeks
Chapter 10 – 2 weeks
Chpater 11 – 3 weeks
Chapter 12 – 3 weeks
Chapter 13 – 2 weeks
Chapter 14 – 3 weeks

That comes out to 34 weeks, which is a good amount of weeks to fit into a regular 40-week school year, where it still allows for you to take off a few weeks from science whenever you decide to during the year.

I plan 3 days of the week for reading. If it’s a 2-week chapter, we do that reading in one week, and if it’s a 3-week chapter we do that reading in two weeks. The number of pages for each day just depends how I decide to break it up, where the sections end, and also depends on what else is planned for those three days. The appropriate terms from the vocabulary worksheet set are filled in while doing the appropriate reading. The final week is then used to do activities in the Notebooking Journal, and any projects or experiments that go along with the lesson. The final day of the final week is used for review.

Our test is actually scheduled the following week, so that it’s taken the same day we start a new chapter.

It’s a pretty basic schedule, and after having planned 3 other years I was able to get this one scheduled pretty quickly. What can I say? It works for us!
