  1. I'm getting the wheels started in thinking about 9th grade planning. This is my last high school kid! 😥 Our co-op's plan won't come out until early March so I'm waiting on that to make final decisions. I'll post our tentative plans below and come back later to make adjustments. Anyone willing to share what they are planning? English: American literature & Composition: Co-op IEW Essay & Research Class, Bluebook of Grammar, American Literature selections... History: A History of US book set; adding timeline, documentaries & movies, mapwork, current events Math:
  2. I'm super interested in the Bravewriter online courses, and I'm wondering, from those of you who have experience with the program, is it worth the cost to take the Writer's Jungle course online before starting a 9th grade course? I'm specifically interested in the courses for my current 13 year old, soon to be 9th grader, although I would also be interested in learning about the process for my younger two, as well. Would my 8th grader think that the Writer's Jungle is "babyish?" Writing is probably what she hates most about school. She doesn't have any experience with courses online, so I
  3. My dd has completed CC Challenge A & B and will be a 9th grader next year. I always thought that she would be in the Challenge program for high school, but I'm rethinking this decision after our year of challenge B. She is a year ahead in Latin and Math. I also want her to take biology instead of physical science next year. So, she would be working on her own at a different level for 3 out of the 6 strands. My questions: Has anyone else stuck with challenge even though you are working ahead in some of the areas? If you left CC, what did you use for History/Literature? Do yo
  4. Has anyone used the Norton Anthology of World Literature for high school world lit? There have been a number of discussions about Great Books literature, including following the WTM, but I haven't seen many or any discussions of using the Norton Anthology of World Literature (previously called Norton Anthology of World Masterpieces). The Norton Anthology, especially the shorter version, seems like a terrific basic text for a lot of the readings. We developed a reading list, but I don't have a lot of background in non-Western/non-Middle East ancient literature to pick particular works, tra
  5. Ok, I'm in the middle of planning for 9th grade next year, and I have to say that I feel like wailing in dismay. I was reading the thread on the WTM BIology class, that students are spending 15-20 (at least 10+) hours a week on this one class. This is after a thread where I was informed it was perfectly normal for a student to carry 7 credits. This just does not compute for me, or for the kind of life experience my dd is hoping to have for the next 4 years. What gives? If a student does 6 or 7 credits, and spends 10+ hours a week on each, then they are spending 60-70 hours per week
  6. I know this has been discussed before, so if anyone can direct me to a thread where it has been hashed out, that would be most welcome. I have 9th grade (yikes!) mostly planned, in concept: Geometry Biology Integrated Health & Fitness (OM) Spanish 2 But I'm not exactly sure how to manage credits for English and History. What I have planned feels like 3 distinct things, although each might not be a whole credit: English: Rhetoric & Composition English: Ancient Literature Ancient History Or, it could be 2 things, which is actually how many credits worth of work I want
  7. Does anyone have any classes they're looking to get off of their hands? I have a rising 9th grader, and I'm looking for the upcoming school year. Thanks!
  8. Mid year is quickly approaching and so far I feel we are doing okay for first year of high school. However I know we have to test at the end and I am a little confused. My question is what tests do you all do for this level? I'm not sure I understand how those state mandated test results are going to show what we learned. How do you all determine which test to administer? I know there are several to pick from but how do they align with what we are teaching if we choose curriculum ? or are they just basic knowledge for the grade level? I am trying to sort this out before I have to
  9. It seems like a lot of people are planning to do Ancient History and Literature with their 9th graders next year. I have three kids who will be doing this for their first year of high school. Anyone want to collaborate, share, commiserate, and possibly get our kids to do some sort of remote discussions/projects? I think it would be a great experience to have everyone who is learning about the same things to come together (virtually) and bounce things off of each other. Something like an online class discussion, but without paying $$$$ for one. Anyway, let me know.
  10. This high school thing ...is new to me and having difficulty making sure that I have enough covered and to determine where to include certain books. :( I have searched intensely on past threads so I hate to duplicate but my list isn't quite the same as everyone else. So for 9th grade my son is taking a Biblical Archaeology class for History which is considered a one credit course along with a few other reads including: Unwrapping the Pharaohs, Unveiling the Kings of Israel, The Archaeology Book. However, on top of that I have this list of books we are reading along side and trying to dete
  11. Okay so in a few days we will be starting 9th grade! Last time we homeschooled was 5th grade I have posted in other threads what we are doing for curriculum but again here is a quick run down.

  12. I need some tips on how in the world to handle this. DD14 is jumping in to the local PS starting 9th grade on Monday. She will be receiving and IPAD with ibooks on it to use for the school year. 1. I have not purchased an Ipad because we have a large family, laptops, a desktop, tv's, iphones, video game systems, Kindle, and a 3DS. It is hard to manage all of these already. It will be a problem for me to keep the other children away from her Ipad. And she likes to use Social networks way too much. 2. I have already told her that her screen time is going to be limited more.
  13. DD14 is determined to go to PS for a SOCIAL Butterfly LIFE! She wanted to go to another county but that simply was not an option. There are no Private schools anywhere near us. This is upsetting to me to say the least. I planned on hs all the way if we could through 12th grade. Anyway, if she does go, I need a plan. I already have Latin, Math, English, and Writing for her. She wants to join ROTC. I know that I have read that most PS do not mind after schooling. I don't want to put too much on her so I am wondering how to even figure out how to after school her.
  14. Homeschooling high school has reentered our radar... I've been reading the "planning for 10th grade" thread and have noticed many comments referencing problems with 9th grade. I would appreciate knowing what those difficulties are/were------scheduling? increased responsibilities? too heavy a workload? personality conflicts? Thanks http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/smile.gif
  15. I'm so confused. My son has Autism PDD. He is AWESOME! Very social and approriate. Things I've worked very hard to make happen. We start our 9th grade year Tues and I really want him to have a diploma when he graduates. My dilema... He is not learning at a 9th grade level. He hates certain subjects and I can not see teaching him English 9. He just doesnt get English. How do I get around this if 3 years of English is required for H.S. We have used Accellerated Christian Education and he seems to like that style of learning. Any suggestions would help. If you've been in this
  16. After reading multiple postings regarding AP World History and given the depth/scope I am considering dividing World History into a 9th and 10th grade class. Thus covering the material in two years versus one. In my local school district the sequence is 9th - world geography 10th - world history 11th- US history 12th - gov't/economics The plan is to use World History Our Human Story (k12 book) by Pearson and Holden. There is so much material I thought that I could divide the book in half and cover the ancients in 9th along with adding in supplementation on world geography. Fo
  17. Forgive me if a thread exists for this already. So what is on your plate for 9th?

  19. I am feeling so much angst over my daughter's high school experience so far. My heart is heavy and I don't know what to do. DD is very conscientious in her work but she is doing so poorly. Her last several tests in government, physics and Alg I have been D's. She works long days so this is bringing her down - and me as well. I am trying to be positive and optimistic in front of her but it's getting more difficult. She has cried so much this semester. Now I am crying as well. I don't really know how to recover. I've always been one to "stay the course" but then again my childre
  20. My wife homeschools our 2 kids (12 and 14) following TWTM philosophy and curriculum plan. Now that our oldest is entering 9th grade, it seems that compiling the curriculum is the hardest ever and the time commitment required by my wife the most she's ever had to give. She is immersed in it and her understanding is light years ahead of mine, but I'm trying to support her more than ever. My primary concern is -- with most other curriculum packages, the homeschooling teacher receives lesson plans that outline "use this book and these pages on this day" and it's all very organized. But, with t

  22. A friend asked what is normal for a boy at this stage and I have no idea what to tell her. Her child did the following: 2 teaching textbook lessons in Algebra 1 (lessons 13 and 14) 1 Apologia lesson (reading pp 291-295) - 1 on your own question, 1 experiment, 2 vocabulary words 1 lesson in Wordly Wise (section a-d) This took him 4 hours 15 min. I believe that this is too little work for this amount of time. Am I being unreasonable? Honestly, I do not consider this to be high school caliber work. I have given him 3 weeks to manage his own schedule in order to see what he would
  23. What subjects does your 9th grader do? I'm looking at: language arts math science history geography That just doesn't seem like enough. What am I missing? I am waiting on health until both dc are in high school and can do it together. We are doing home ec this year. Language Arts includes writing, lit analysis, vocabulary. I'm undecided on a foreign language at this point. Dd wants to do sign language and I am hoping a co-op starts up soon. So, what else should I be considering as a subject for 9th?
  24. What does your 9th graders day look like? Not schedule wise, but curriculum, work load wise? I am especially interested in Language Arts/English.
