This is book VI in our series, our 10th grade book, which teaches ceremonial writing: the writing of speeches and letters and descriptive essays.

From the Guidelines for Placement of Students page:
Herodotus, Plutarch, and Demosthenes are sequential courses that offer two semesters of high school composition, grammar, and literature.

So, I was under the impression that Plutarch was intended to be for a whole year. Now that I have the books, I see that there are only 16 weeks scheduled (and the new online class is for one semester.) Did I miss something? How is that supposed to work?

Will Demosthenes be short too?

Thanks for calling this to our attention. We need to make a correction to the website. The schedule for Plutarch has been modified as we have tested it. Here is our current plan:

Herodotus - 2 semesters
Plutarch (available in beta format) - 1 semester
Advance Poetry (currently in alpha stage) - 1 semester
Shakespeare (future) - 1 semester
Demosthenes (currently in alpha stage) - 2 semesters

One of our goals was to give ample time in the high school years to complete all of our offerings, even if students need to spend a semester working through Aesop, Homer, and/or Diogenes.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
