~Amanda~ Posted July 20, 2012 Share Posted July 20, 2012 I"m struggling a lot right now. I was fine with the next year how I had it planned out; but now that I'm looking at everything as a "now until the end of high school" ... my 7th grader is "off". and I don't know what to do... I was trying to do my 6th and 7th grader on the same schedule; which I can continue to do for this year, at least, but I need to try to do something different for 8th grade to try to get back on track for high school. Can anyone give me any advice as far as what I should do for getting back on track for science/history? I'm open to new curriculum choices, but we are pretty much strictly secular. My plan for this year was something like - Science - Biology Logic Stage Math - lof books Writing - Writing Strands/Classical Writing- Grammar-AG - Logic - Art of Argument Latin -Visual Latin computer - typing etc Geography- History - History Odyssey Middle Ages stage 2 Our schedule is messed up because we homeschooled for 5th grade, and then she requested to go back to PS, which I allowed, and then halfway through the year she came back home (in 6th grade) so while she was in the 5th grade, we did ancients... but most of this ^^^ was my plan for her in 6th grade that got sidetracked because she went back to PS. I don't want to skip middle ages... should I do like a US history for 8th, and then pick back up in 9th with ancients etc? and what about science? We did chemistry last year, and biology this year... I'm using the elemental science, which seems to be perfectly lined up with my son, but not so with DD (7th grade). So what should I do for 8th grade science? Is there a "general science" that sort of goes over earth, physics, etc until I can start her up in 9th? and then is it too repetitive to do biology in 7th and then again in 9th? I don't have my HS science picked out as of yet, either, so that doesn't help me much, although I am eyeballing this one http://www.scienceforhighschool.com/ She is leaning towards a science-based career; she's doing shadowing at a vet clinic now, and is in the 4H Vet Science Club, which will have her with a veterinary assistant certificate by the time she graduates HS (or before). So I'm less worried about TOO much biology and not ENOUGH of another science. Any insight is appreciated. I know this is probably disjointed reading.
