Popehj Posted November 29, 2016 Share Posted November 29, 2016 (edited) Hi, I've been a lurker here for a long time and thought I would ask for your advice. I am not sure what I should do for my soon to be 9th grader and am in a conundrum. I like too many things but know there is only so many hours a day one should do school as well not overspend on curriculum, lol. I am thinking of a couple paths we could go but unsure. I would love to have your opinions. Thank you. Option 1: 1. Use MFW AHL for History, literature, and Bible subbing Fagles Homer for the Memoria Press Illiad and Odyssey sets with Samuel Butler translation (I already own and want to use, lol). Also, adding Unveiling the Kings of Israel by David Down. 2. Memoria Press Classical Composition V (Common Topic) 3. Apologia Biology with MFW lesson guide 4. Traditional Logic I and II 5. 3rd Form Latin (Memoria Press) 6. Add in some extra literature, including 2 Shakespeare Plays 7. Continuing Analytical Grammar 8. Spanish 10. Videotext Algebra 11. Ambleside Online some suggestions for free reads, Citizenship, Government/Economics, Worldview, Artist study, Composer Study, and Biblical study, 12. Astronomy Study with the book Signs and Seasons Option 2: Not do MFW 1. Memoria press Ancient Greeks study 1 semester and Homer 2nd semester 2. Memoria Press Geography III with the extra suggestions to make a full year course 3. Master Books Biblical Archaeology curriculum pack 4. Memoria Press Classical Composition V (Common Topic) 5.Continuing Analytical Grammar 6. Memoria Press Third Form Latin 7. Memoria Press 9th Grade Literature set (Beowulf, Canterbury Tales, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Henry V, Poetry, Prose, and Drama book, and Mill's Middles Ages) 8. Memoria Press Story of Christianity or Acts and Josephus 9. Apologia Biology 10. Videotext Algebra 11. Ambleside Online some suggestions for free reads, Citizenship, Government/Economics, Worldview, Artist study, Composer Study, and Biblical study, 12. Astronomy Study with the book Signs and Seasons (Once a week as a Nature study) 13. Traditional Logic 1 and 2 14. Spanish 15. 1 research paper due at end of year. Option 3 Same as option 2 with the following exceptions: Instead of doing the Biblical Archaeology finish American History by using SOTW 4 and James Stobaughâ€™s Studies in World History Vol. 3 with various literature to read. Instead of MPâ€™s 9th grade literature set, use Stobaughâ€™s Literature Analysis. Option 4 Same as option 2 with the following exceptions: 1. Add Diana Waring's History Revealed Ancient Civilizations and not do the MP literature. Please let me know what you think, thanks so much.
