Mrs. Cynthia Bullock, BS

Mrs. Cynthia Bullock, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningAfter graduating from Bob Jones University in 1987, Cynthia Bullock went on to teach history in Virginia, Michigan, Florida, and North Carolina. It was in Michigan that she met her husband, who was the math teacher in the Christian school where they served together for 17 years. They have four children, three girls and a boy. She took ten years off to stay home with them since three of the four are profoundly deaf. When they mainstreamed into a normal classroom, she returned to the classroom. The Lord led her here to BJU Press Distance Learning in 2011. “I'm so excited about having your child as my student. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you by coming along side and lightening your load.”

 

Miss Rebekah Pringle, BA, MA

Miss Rebekah Pringle, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMiss Pringle's interest in literature began at an early age through her mother's almost daily reading aloud of good literature as a part of her family's school day. The past 10 years of focused study and teaching in the disciplines of Creative Writing and English have increased Miss Pringle's delight and enthusiasm in analyzing and evaluating all genres of literature. “Everyone loves a story. A well-crafted story, poem, essay, or drama delights me on several levels, but it's the benefit of gaining an increased understanding and appreciation of God's inspired literature, His Word, that motivates me to apply and grow in my own literary analysis skills and to do my best to instill in my students a similar desire for and delight in literature. It's my prayer that as we enjoy great literary works together we will be inspired to love and pursue God's truth presented in His greatest Book of literature.”

 

Mrs. Sherri Vick, BS

Mrs. Sherri Vick, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningSherri Vick previously taught various elementary and junior high grades. "I like to look at the picture as a whole—to relate one subject to another so that the child can see how God’s plan fits together. I want the child to want to learn, so the lessons have to be fun. Hands-on is the best way, so I don’t want the student to just watch, but participate too! One of my goals is that, after watching the lessons, your child will continue in the things he has learned and develop lifelong learning skills that he can use both now and in the future."

 

Mr. Bill Harmon, BS

Mr. Bill Harmon, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningBill Harmon has loved science for as long as he can remember. After completing his B.S. in Chemistry, he returned to Florida where he gained experience teaching a variety of subjects: science, math, Latin, and computer courses.

Grade 9 Online with Books is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Course! Cultural Geography is my child's favorite class this year. The instructor is engaging, and the textbook is well written and colorful. The Student Activities book is laid out nicely and is a good study tool.
Date published: 2018-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging video lessons, great material Great curriculum! The video lessons clearly present the material in an engaging way. Each video begins with a quick review of the previous day's material, and ends with a restatement of the most important info from that day's topic. This makes it very easy for students to develop their note-taking skills (although the material is also clearly presented in the book as well). Additionally, the videos contain frequent fun and informative special segments on the culture and features of the countries, as well as interviews with missionaries serving in different areas. The textbook is colorful and engaging. My son kept looking ahead and finding interesting tidbits to share with me from upcoming chapters: "Hey Mom, did you know..." Highly recommend the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helping Hand I homeschool 2 children on different grade levels and work a part time job. This curriculum gives me a helping hand. My 9th grader is able to get started on the curriculum and watch the videos while I am busy with my other child. Having the teachers is extremely helpful. He does complain about the test questions not being covered in the videos or books. A child can take an open book test and still fail the test. We have had a difficult start but things did get better as the school year passed. My son started making better grades. We will be doing this curriculum again next year.
Date published: 2018-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Program This is our first "official" geography class. Ms. Bullock is a great teacher. She includes many personal and extra tidbits that are not in the book. She ties in biblical integration so that the student can understand the need for missionaries in many areas of the world. The quizzes and tests are fair and they stick to the curriculum. Many of the tests have essays and fill in versus multiple choice. The program is age appropriate and Ms. Bullock really tries to help the student with note taking and test preparation.
Date published: 2018-05-07
Rated 2 out of 5 by from difficult cirriculum I do not recommend this curriculum for students who have not been doing Bob Jones all along. This is NOT a curriculum that you just "jump into" starting in 9th grade. I feel that I should have been told this when considering doing this curriculum.
Date published: 2018-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great course that strongly integrates biblical principles into the material. I am very pleased with the Cultural Geography course as it integrates both a strong academic approach to geography with a strong emphasis of a biblical world view.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome This is a good way of learning for my son He is learning in the proper way
Date published: 2017-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent transition to high school! My eldest was starting his high school years and my husband and I felt he needed more accountability. This program was perfect! He now has several teachers with different styles, none of whom he can argue with! He's finally being self-motivated, knowing he has a set amount of work to do each day. My son's favorite subject is Physical Science. In the past, he has often tinkered with projects of his own design and now he understands the science behind what he's doing! I appreciate the teacher's missions-minded approach in Cultural Geography. Too often, kids get wrapped up in their own lives and don't appreciate what they have or take the time to think of the needs of others. Writing and Grammar lays the foundation for writing and challenges the student to learn the parts of speech to be better equipped to write well. I love being able to select grades up or down for each subject. Mr. Harmon's teaching style has unlocked areas in math that my son has struggled with for years! We have been thoroughly pleased with this curriculum and I share our story with my home school friends all the time!
