My 10 year old is a humanities guy, I posted on the logic board, there is a thread there I will look for and link. Also Ruth (lewelma) posted a few times about her humanities plan for her younger. I'm on my phone but I'll come back, I've been figuring this out for my own kid.
ETA: Here is my thread on the logic board:
Here is the language arts focus thread from Lewelma
For my 10 year old, he is very humanities oriented, music is his big thing, he was a precocious reader and testing always confirms he's more verbally gifted than visual-spatial STEM kind of gifted.
I'm planning on lots of plays, supporting his music making, and lots of writing, both creative and essay/report writing.
We will study the classics, I majored in English and thankfully kept my papers (printed out as no computers will read my hard disks anymore! ) so I'm going to model some units after classes I took.
He's doing Spanish with HSA and we will continue prioritizing that. I'm going to try to talk him into Latin again because I think he would really get a lot out of it, but I ultimately leave it up to him so we'll see how it goes.
History and science are a little up in the air as far as high school. We follow TWTM loop for both. We are taking 2 years for US history. For these logic years, I'm keeping it light. We are using Hakim's History of US this year and next, with documentaries and geography stuff.
For 7th grade I'm looking into the Build Your Library 8th grade plan. We probably would only use it for the Hakim Story of Science series and add in our own literature, as that won't be on level at all.
Science, we are using Unzinggo for this year and next. Next year he wants to learn Astronomy so I joined a local Astronomy club, and we will get a subscription to Great Courses Plus. After that he's due for Chemistry and I'll cross that Bridge when we get to it. We have used the MEL kits with great success so I might add those back in but as far as what we will use, I'm not sure.
I have found a lot of science "lit" for him and he's really responding to it. These two books especially, https://www.amazon.c... degrasse tyson
I don't have much planned as far as high school is concerned. We were originally planning to send the kids to high school but the closer we get the more I'm feeling like that might not be the best option. I will leave it up to them as far as high school, so again, I have to wait and see.
Sorry for the ramble, I've been obsessing over humanities this week!
