Well, we have 11 weeks left of 9th grade, and I think we've finally decided what we're doing - LOL!

 

History: TruthQuest (Greece and Rome), along with parts of Beautiful Feet, Spielvogel and Golden's Universal History of the World

 

 

Primary Sources from
Sources of the Western Tradition

 

 

 

Greenleaf's Guide to the Old Testament

 

 

Latin: Latin II online with Memoria Press

 

English: IEW's Phonetic Zoo Level C

 

 

Vocabulary from Classical Roots, B and C

 

 

 

IEW's Fix-It! for Grammar

 

 

 

IEW's SWI-C, High School Essay Intensive, and Elegant Essay

 

 

 

Memory Work

 

 

Logic: We completed Traditional Logic I and are reading various Critical Thinking books right now. I may give this a half credit, or it may just get lumped into English.

 

Biology: Apologia

 

Literature: Mostly we are using Smarr's Ancient Lit, but I add in readings from Heroes of the City of Man - and we are changing some of the plays in Smarr to include plays covered in Heroes.

 

Math: Saxon Algebra I. We are new to Saxon this year, and I'm hoping DS will be agreeable to working through the summer so we can start Algebra II early. (Well, one can hope!)
