Class names and Subjects names definitely have some overlap, and can be confused. This article seeks to clarify the best practices for using both titles in your Homeschool Planet account.
Subject Names and Class Names
The best advice we can give you is to keep your subject names simple and save the details for your class names.
Some examples of Subject names: Math, Language Arts, History, Science, Bible, PE, Electives, etc.
Class names should be included in the details.
Examples of Class names for the subject Math would be: Algebra 1, or Saxon 6/5, Horizons 3, Thinkwell 7th grade math, etc…
This will make organizing far easier as you use Homeschool Planet more and more! Using too many Subject titles is the number one thing that causes trouble down the road because users end up with too many separate subject names. A good way to think about this is to think about the Categories you would see on a High School Transcript. For example you would not see Spelling, but you would see Language Arts.
