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!)
