  1. Depending on your state's laws, you could have her take art at your local public middle- or high school, free of charge.
  2. Kathy Reichs has a similar series, with a forensic anthropologist, Temperance Brennan. The TV series, "Bones", is based off these books. Oh, and Kathy Reichs also has a YA series, "Virals", with Temperance Brennan's niece, Tory.
  3. We are in west Michigan and there at least four Christian universities/colleges that I know of here where kids can take dual enrollment...Calvin University, Cornerstone University, Grace Christian University, and Kuyper College. These all grant bachelor's degrees. There are also two D2 state universities, Grand Valley State and Ferris State that have it.
  4. I went through this same thought process for this year, though my DD is going to be a junior. We did Ancient, then Medieval/Ren & Ref for history/lit for 9th and 10th. But I did not want to have to cover one credit of American History in 2 years of a curriculum. Plus it feels like you are stuck if you decide that curriculum isn't working (for us it was Tapestry of Grace...which I loved for my older 3 kids but isn't a fit for this kid.). We looked at but didn't love it. I have decided to use Joy Hakim's The Story of US...all 10 books, 3 weeks per book. I found some pre-done worksheets and will use notebooking with it as well. We'll see how it goes.
  5. We liked the Christian Kids Explore series from Bright Ideas Press at that age.
  6. We have liked Apologia's Exploring Creation Books with the Student Notebooking Journal. Lots of activities and experiments. We've done the Swimming Creatures of the 5th Day and Anatomy. Definitely can be done independently.
  7. Dragon Slayers Academy series by Kate McMullan Horrible Harry series by Suzy Kline Henry and Mudge series by Cynthia Rylant Encyclopedia Brown series by Donald Sobol A to Z Mysteries by Ron Roy
  9. Modern Literature, Poetry, Movies as Literature, Women's Literature, Short Stories, Mythology
  10. The weekly co-op we belong to is K-12 and has at least 100 families. There are enrichment and academic classes. All the classes have a charge. The teachers are paid. You're paying $300-$400 per class per year, for high school classes. They offer all the core academics for all 4 years of high school. This is our first year with senior is taking Gov't/Econ and my sophhomlre is taking Algebra 2 and Biology. I think having to pay helps people take it more seriously.
  11. We've liked the Christian Kids Explore science series from Bright Ideas Press.
  12. I like the looks of this ...
  13. Maybe "Augustus Caesar's World" by Genevieve Foster.
  14. You can use the Study Guides that go along with the History of the World series' for the extras...those have comprehension questions, map work, critical thinking questions, and a "who/what/where" identify section.
