I am looking for a High School level World Geography curriculum that my 9th grader can use to earn a half credit.  Looking for something he can complete in four or five months.  I would especially like it if the course focused on the Eastern Hemisphere and included cultural information while remaining strong in Geography.  I am considering Oak Meadow even though it's not a half credit course.  Any suggestions?

A Beka has a ninth grade half credit geography course.

 

Thanks!  I think we may get it.  We haven't used many textbooks over the years.  I think it may be good to use one for this subject though.  I need something that is easy to use.  Have you ever used it?  I am wondering if the units can be arranged in the order that we want to cover them in, rather than as laid out in the book.

BJU has a high school level world geography.

Sonlight has a core that focuses on the eastern hemisphere, which you could beefup by adding more high school level literature, or trim to 1 semester by leaving out easier works.

 

My sixth grader is using that Sonlight core now.  We are only a month into it.  I had planned to have my 9th grader sit in on it, beef up the reading, and have him do ALL of the Eastern Hemisphere Explorer pages.  We have the old pages and they are quite detailed.  But, I just wasn't sure if even all that was enough for a half credit.  He is also studying Modern World History now and there are quite a few topics that he is studying or will be studying that would fit in to the focus of that Sonlight Core (like all the isms... communism, socialism, etc.) but I'm still not sure if it is "enough".  I will need to find higher level reading material for him.  The books are GREAT but not high school level.  I think the Explorer pages are though and he does read ALL of the accompanying articles from the World Book Encyclopedia.  Still not sure if it is enough for High School.

Here's a thread from November on a similar topic.  It has been tagged 'Geography.'  If you click on the tag, you'll find a number of other threads that might prove helpful.  Alternatively, you could use the search feature to search under the tag Geography and limit the responses to the high school board.
