The program costs $49.95 for the year.
Is this a 12 month year? or a traditional 9 month school year?
A membership is for a full 12 months, starting from the date
How are the selected books scheduled?
Automatically by the program?
Or by the parent? (Do I, as the parent need to go
through each selection and schedule each daily reading?
OR does the program do this based
on certain parameters I would enter?)
It is not BOOKS that are scheduled in a plan, but BLOCKS.
A standard BLOCK contains 36 readings, one for each week of
the school year. All the readings in a block may come from a single book,
a couple of books, or a variety of books.
All you need to do to create a plan is to select a few BLOCKs for
each child and enter them into your plan in the order they are to be read
during the week. Then the weekly reading plans are created automatically.
The selection of blocks MAY take you a while, since there are 335
blocks to choose from. But you can use the Block Selector to
view only those blocks belonging to the genre(s) you choose
and the age range you select.
Do we pay an additional fee for the downloaded ebooks?
No, all new ebooks released during the year that you are a
member are available for
you to download at no additional charge. Two new ebooks are
released each week, so you will have 104 new ebooks available to you
over the course of the year.
Are all the ebooks in Yesterday's Classics 225 Titles Ebook Package
available to download too?
No, all these titles are available to read online, but not to
download as ebooks. Once you join
Gateway to the Classics, you will have an opportunity to purchase the
package for $49.95.
Do we need to be online to use a plan
once it has been set up?
You need to be online to create a plan, but once
it is set up, you can print the plan overview and
weekly schedules to use as checklists. If you want
all reading to be done offline, you would need
access to the text. This could be an ebook, a print
book, or text that you printed or copied to a file.
You can print the text of readings in a plan in
two ways. The first is to click on the week number
to print (or copy to a file) all the text for the readings in that week.
The second is to click on the block header to print (or copy to a file) all
the text for the readings in that block. Audio recordings are only
available if you are online.
