"Easier" classes on Straighterline?
#1
My son is going to take the Bio 1 and lab on Straighterline. Since that class may be more difficult for him, what are some other good classes to pair it with that might be "lighter" load to finish in the time of our membership?

He's kind of a middle of the road guy - good at math but also likes a variety of subjects.

Thanks!

My two sons took the religion course first. This was a while ago, back when we had to buy the textbook, but I actually homeschooled them for the class (sort of) by having reading sessions / review the three of us together. Anyway, while not *easy* it was open book AND we printed off all the tests so they had them for studying. Both passed easily.

I second Intro to Religion! It's a very light course and good to pair with heavier courses.

I definitely also recommend the Intro to Religion course, as I passed it with a 96% last night. The final exam is really easy, but then again, I have always studied many different religions due to my fascination with them. Still, it's a great course.
