Pls Share your 10th grade courses!


Recommended Posts

Looking ahead to next semester and would like feedback and to see what others are doing with their 10th graders. 

 

Here's what we are thinking, very roughly, and I would love feedback.

 

Calculus ETA: debating about whether to do AP Calc AB. 

Physics

Spanish 2

English (through onlineg3--literature and writing but not sure where to focus. Doing 19th c brit lit this semester)

Modern American History (not sure if this is 'okay'---i'd like to focus on 20th century events)

Art

Tae Kwon Do and physical fitness classes

 

THoughts?

Okay, I am editing the above as of 2/16/2017

Here's what i am thinking now

 

Calculus-Wilson Hill

Spanish 2-Wilson Hill

Rhetoric 1-WTMacademy

US History--Wtm

Literature of the New World-WTM Academy

Physics: clover creek

Looks fabulous to me.

 

My oldest looked something like medieval history, medieval lit, homegrown composition, biology, math with a tutor, Spanish, medieval mythology elective in 10th. The next one had Brit lit, homegrown composition, world geography, forensic science, math, Spanish, and OYAN. They both did competitive swimming and scouts.

Random thought on the history - looking ahead to 11th and 12th grades, are you considering any APs or are they not part of your big-picture plan?  For example, if you were to do APUSH in 11th, then I might reconsider American history this year.  Otherwise, seems fine.  Depending on the specific courses and your student, and how much credit you're doing for art and PE, you might have time for one more credit for an academic elective.

Can you share what you will be using for your American History?  I'd like to do modern with my daughter next year.  

 

Still planning 10th grade...

 

American Literature

Pre-Calculus (maybe dual enrollment and then calculus second semester)

Chemistry (dual enrollment)

American History

P.E. (gymnastics and aerial acrobatics)

 

maybe more foreign language (she has done four semesters dual enrollment of Spanish), health, coding...haven't figured all that out yet.

Looks great to me. I hope he enjoys being home this semester & that it isn't too hard on you.

I'd let him choose his English as long as the writing is challenging enough. 

 

I think Modern US History is a great idea. (I've always wanted to do a small class where we use Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire as a jumping off point and each kid would read their own modern history textbook. We'd do a lot of discussion & presentations. Maybe one of my kids & a few of their friends will be interested...)

I think it looks great.  My son will be 10th grade next year, and I'm thinking about moving my dd up as well. Here is our tentative plan for both:

 

Son, 10th grade:

 

Health & PE(over summer)

 

Algebra 2

History: Japanese history.  Putting together our own research and report in some manner program

Biology

German 2

English:  BJU Lit 9, So Verbose Writing Mechanics I, and then either another mechanics class or Essay II(he's doing 1 now)

elective?  He needs to do something....not sure yet what

 

DD, maybe 10th...looking at her schedule wouldn't you think it's ok to move her up???

 

Health & PE (over summer)

 

Algebra 2

History:  Early Modern World & US

Biology

ASL 3

English: BJU Lit 10(yep, ahead of her brother), So Verbose Essay I and II

elective:  piano and art

Last year was 10th grade for my oldest, We did:

 

World History (included a large project on a world event)

Math (Khan-academy working our way through high school math)

Chemistry

Japanese (1 semester)

Art

Computer programming (Khan-academy)

Language and linguistics (on her own)

Applied Science:  Baking and Candy-making

Literature and composition

 

For my youngest (next year) we are planning:

 

Asian History

Asian Literature

Art History

Music History

Anatomy through Art (for science, basically studying anatomy to better draw not only the human body but some animals as well)

Math

Japanese

Violin

Art

 

She's very focused on Art and music and Asia. The Anatomy course is something I'm working on figuring out. Basically, it's to help her with drawing but we want to study the parts from skeleton out and how they move and work and all of that. She'll have to learn the vocabulary as well. But it's more for an art student than someone wanting to go into the medical field.

US History (most likely AP done with FundaFunda schedule)

American Literature and undecided on writing

Chemistry

PE & Health (probably Oak Meadow)

I saw this, and realized I am already forgetting the courses my 10th graders did!

 

My oldest (current college senior) had the stranger transcript of the two, as I felt inclined to be more creative with hers. She was involved in Academic Decathlon, so some of her courses were structured around that. She did:

 

Algebra 2 (Teaching Textbooks)

Geology (after a dramatic and highly unsuccessful attempt at an online chemistry course)

A social studies course we called "Economics in the Great Depression" (which makes me laugh now to read that title)

Another social studies course called "Law Studies", that involved some of the AcaDeca content, along with work in the local peer-mediated youth court program.

American Literature, centered around that Depression era as well.

Speech and Debate

Turkish (was preparing for a junior year exchange)

Drivers Ed

Rock Climbing

 

My more recent 10th grader (current college freshman) did:

 

AP Calculus AB (Derek Owens)

World History (audited an AP Homeschoolers course)

AP English Literature (AP Homeschoolers)

Chemistry (Apologia, with local co-op lab)

Mandarin (local tutor)

Orchestra (local high school)

Health (this involved studying a manual from the local school and passing a test)

My 10th grader next year will do: 

Geometry

Advanced Biology which I think is Anatomy in the Apologia series or Marine Biology

Latin III or switch to another language. I'd like to get more Latin in. She may be done. I am leaving this up to her. But it will be a foreign language credit. 

World History- middle ages, great book study and WTM methods

English II- either WTM rhetoric materials for writing or R&S 9/10 and lit studies 

 

electives up in air. She's talking about music lessons. So we would do a full music appreciation on top of music practice for a credit. 

If not, continue the amount of hours she is putting in for dance for a PE credit. (she will cut down and just have it as an elective or just accumulate hours towards one more credit over the next 3 yrs if we cut back.) 

And I always like to get art and art history in. We will keep it up and see if we get enough in for a half credit.

I'll be interested to hear what others say because we don't have experience yet, but I think it depends entirely on the AP, as some are more rigorous (and so more valuable in the eyes of colleges) than others.  Also, it seems that the particular teacher/course is a factor in how efficient the learning is vs unnecessarily large workload/spinning of wheels.

 

You would also need to decide between AB and BC calc for next year.  And while you're at it, you could consider DE instead of AP or have some of both

I think it depends on the student. Most will take it in 11th and 12th but we have had students on this forum that have taken starting in middle school. They were able to pace it better and not be overloaded but these were also very strong students. I think 10th is about a good grade to shoot for with 1 or 2 but it all depends on the students and their post high school plans.

Some people do not like AP because it is a high stakes one day test but we are planning on doing a few.

This is my concern. I will talk to him further, but i don't think he would like this (does anyone??) We are considering DE in 10th grade.

Depends on the student. If he is a decent math student, he would probably be fine in AP Calc (I presume it's AB rather than BC?) The test at the end of the year is optional. :-) My daughter did AP US Gov in 9th grade, and AP Calc AB in 10th grade, along with AP English Lit.

Subject to change, but current plan for 10th is:

 

Schola- Great Books Ancient Romans (history and lit credit)

Also continuing with HotAW and will cross into HotMW for additional History reading

WTMA- Rhetoric I

TBD- Algebra full course (review I and II)

Visual Latin 2

TBD Chemistry

Psychology

Art II with our homeschool group

very tentative plan:

 

math - taking calc 1 now, so calc 2?  I really don't know, I also had the idea of having him take calc based physics instead (at the CC) and practicing/reviewing math at home

physics

US history

US govt

something with computer programming (he's taking an intro course this spring)

right now we are working through a college level lit and writing book, and reading whatever he wants to read...so probably we will continue with that (it's a very big book)

I'm thinking of outsourcing extra writing instruction, but I don't know what/where yet

What does your dd think of the Apologia Physics course? Are you doing the DVDs or streaming videos, or just the text and notebook?

Just the text & tests, not even the notebook. She is more of a life science girl; she enjoys biology, says that chemistry is math pretending to be biology, and physics is math not even pretending! But otherwise she is doing fine with Apologia. She will be taking chemistry and physics as DE in the future and preferred to go through the subjects with Apologia first, rather than have the college classes be her introduction to the material.

Looks good to me!

 

My DD will likely do the following for tenth next year:

Algebra 2 (tentatively with AOPS because she likes their geometry this year)

Chemistry

European history since the Renaissance (her choice)

British/European lit since the Renaissance

Continuing composition and creative writing with WTM books and writing in other subjects

Spanish 2/3 (outsourced)

Music/fine arts elective -- maybe

Latin elective -- maybe

 

DE isn't free in our district, and it would be a lot of driving for me, so we aren't intending on that for next year. I don't know that APs are really going to be her thing, but we are planning on DE for eleventh grade.

Editing because my son already made his decisions!

English 3, - twice a week in-person class at homeschool center (hoping we can talk to teacher about adding Honors designation, for those willing to do the extra work.)

Advanced Composition Year Two (Honors)

 

PA Homeschoolers AP Comparative Government (he loves this topic and is thrilled about the course.  I'm thrilled it's taught by a USAF Veteran!)

German 2 with Excelsior  

Saxon Advanced Math  Derek Owens Geometry plus Mathnasium
 

Chemistry at local homeschool center or Honors online chemistry with G3 or TPS  (Ruled out AP Chem.  Too much for my boy who has to really work at math to excel.  This is a different kind of math, and he would be fine with it, but all of the hours of study on top of everything else would be overkill....sooo)

SVOHS US History - he wants to take it just to cover the UC requirement.  :)

 

Do you have experience with SVOHS already? If yes, how do you like it? Is your dc learning anything? (We halfheartedly began Span 1 and didn't think very much of it) We don't want to do APUSH so was thinking of doing WTMA US Hist which gets great reviews - and then take the SAT II Subj test end of year... thinking he may learn more than with SVOHS?

 

We've been planning all 4 years - it's like a complicated puzzle. We are in California - so seeking UC/A-G approval.

 

English - WriteatHome Composition / Center for Lit Literature discussion

Math - WHA Precalc

Science - PAH AP Chem

History - WTMA US Hist

Language - Span 2 w/ Homeschool Spanish Academy

Elective - PAH AP Macroeconomics

Elective - AP Microeconomics (plan to get syllabus CB approved)

Gr8lander - I know you've told me before but I forget - what did you use for AP US Govt? We're doing that this year - using Thinkwell.

 

As for APs, we've jumped in with both feet and shooting for 3 per year... we'll see after this May's test how we fare for this year, 9th grade (AP Human Geography, AP US Govt, AP Computer Science)

It's totally stupid and yes he is learning something just because World History is a truly vast subject!!!

 

But we will just do two years for the A-G req and do some other history of civics for the other two years.

 

It's a compilation of hardly related YouTube videos and then quizzes and tests.

 

Honestly it's truly basic but we are happy!!! It's easy and painless. 😀

But like the Shmoop thread, even if A-G approved, does it work for A-G approval for an independent (non-charter) homeschooler? I thought I had it all figured out - and now I'm confused all over again.

 

We are thinking of taking it easy in 11th grade, using Crash Course for World History - but not doing it to seek A-G as we'll have satisfied that already with AP Human Geo & AP US Govt and US Hist SAT II test.

I don't know if next year is going to be 9th or 10th for Dd13 next year.

 

TOG Year Three for history and lit

Foerster Algebra II

Spanish II, I'm not sure I will continue with BtB. I'm not really impressed with it.

Psychology with an MIT course

Apologia Chemistry

Geography for 1/2 credit

 

And maybe that is it? She needs to do a logic course, so maybe we'll do a 1/2 credit for that.

Do you have Asian history & literature curriculum that you're using? Both of my girls were adopted from Asia, so I think courses like this sound great!

Your son is quite accelerated, so I doubt you are really comparing his courses to those of typical or struggling students. My son's schedule won't be of any use to you.

 

However, since others read these threads and they often skew so hard towards the high-achievers that it can be discouraging to those with less-talented students, I will share my 10th grade courses as you asked. He has LDs and pretty much needs me to tutor him through each subject.

 

He is technically in the second semester of 9th grade, but credit-wise he is a first-semester sophomore. This term he is taking:

 

Geometry (Holt McDougal)

Forensic science (through our local school)

Psychology (Holt)

English (using Novel-Ties lit guides - currently reading 1984, then on to Murder on the Orient Express, Fahrenheit 451, and Hamlet)

PE - counting hours on treadmill/lifting weights/outdoor activities

Educational Travel - some projects in preparation for a school trip to Europe in May

And we might be starting French in the next week or two, though he really doesn't think he can learn a second language (honestly English is hard enough for him).

 

ETA: we have now added in Biology: Cycles of Life (AGS).

For Culinary Arts - in Fall he was taking 2 hours a week of class through our homeschool enrichment program and I had him read all of Alton Brown's I am Here For The Food books one chapter at a time and cook/bake something in the category of each chapter. He did other cooking, watched some shows etc. This semester he's taking the class again (different recipes all semester) and we're adding on though I'm not sure of all of it.

We finished our planning, so updating this a little.  We are working on this year-round.  DD picked her courses (I claim no responsibility for this list):

 

Saxon 2 lessons/practice problems + Living Math  - I have a huge booklist waiting for us. *insert scary music*

 

English  - Folk Tales around the world (including the original Brothers Grimm) + continue English from the Roots Up + Writing with Skill 3 + finish Our Mother Tongue (grammar) + The Thinking Toolbox

 

Human Geography - using living books + The Geography Coloring Book + Eat Your Way Around the World + Google Earth

 

Latin  - continue Visual Latin and Lingua Latina readers (this was just a big hit this year)

 

German  - continue Komm Mit series + continue Deutschakademie audio course + German readers

 

Ethology - living books, including the Temple Grandin books

 

Human Anatomy & Health - partial Guest Hollow's High School Anatomy course + 3 sections from Holt Biology + labs - I'm actually giving her a half credit for health, also.  It's a huge amount of reading

 

Beginning Woodworking  - CLE's text/workbook

 

PE  -  our wonderful homeschool PE program where they play football, soccer, team handball, Ultimate Frisbee, etc.

 

Sadly, it looks like 8-ish credits to me.  I was lucky to stop her there.  I should probably restrict their coffee consumption when they're choosing courses for the year.

My 10th grader decided to go down a slightly different path than was originally planned.  He will be doing 10th-12th grades over the next year and a half and finish by what would normally be the end of junior year.  He will take the SAT, standardized CAT-E (as per NY regs), and TASC (NYs new GED) in the spring and early summer 2018 (thankfully he has an early birthday so he qualifies). So, his major subjects will mostly revolve around what is on those tests.  In lieu of college, he plans on going to an intense coding "bootcamp", with plans to become a software developer/engineer.  Here's what's on the agenda for the next 18 months (Topics were taken from the testing website.  More than half of this list has already been covered and will just be reviewed):

 

English (Literature & Composition): ​Comprehension • Analysis • Examining how and why details are used •  Application • Transferring ideas from one context to another •  Synthesis • Putting ideas together to understand a larger meaning. ​Literary nonfiction • History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical texts • Workplace and Community texts •  Novel excerpts • Poetry • Drama excerpts. ​Organization • Ordering ideas, topic sentences, relevance, paragraphing •  Sentence Structure • Run-ons, fragments, parallel structure •  Usage • Subject-verb agreement, pronoun agreement, tense • ​Mechanics • Capitalization; punctuation (commas); spelling of homonyms, contractions, possessives. Contexts

Math: ​Numbers and Quantity​, Algebra, ​Functions, ​Geometry, ​Statistics and Probability

History: ​US History:  Civil War and Reconstruction (1850–1877) • The Development of the Industrial United States (1870–1900) • Post-War United States (1945–1970s). ​World History:  Age of Revolutions (1750–1914) • A Half-Century of Crisis and Achievement (1900–1945) • World History: The 20th Century Since 1945: Promises and Paradoxes. ​Civics and Government:  U.S. Constitution: Embodies the Purpose, Values, and Principles of American Democracy • Civic Life, Politics, and Government • Role of the Citizen in American Democracy • Foundations of the American Political System. ​Geography:  Places and Regions • Environment and Society • Human Systems and Societies ​Economics:  Government and Economics • Macroeconomics • Basic Economics • Microeconomics

Science: ​Physical Science:  Matter and Its Interactions • Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions • Energy • Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer ​ Life Science:  From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes • Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics • Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits • Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity Earth and Space Science:  Earth’s Place in the Universe • Earth’s Systems • Earth and Human Activity

 

Plus, lots of computer stuff, drum and guitar lessons, and Muay Thai boxing and Brazilian JiuJitsu.

And we might be starting French in the next week or two, though he really doesn't think he can learn a second language (honestly English is hard enough for him).

 

I usually advise students who don't have an interest and who are only likely to take the minimum foreign language required in college to do one of two things in high school: wait until junior year before starting, or start in freshman year and go at half-speed (half credit per year). 

 

This lets them start with French 101 in college having covered most of what will be in the first two classes, without a gap to forget things. 

 

It's true that selective colleges often prefer to see more than two years, but I don't think that 3-4 years of poor performance is better than 2 years of better work.

Always love to see what others are looking at/have decided on for a new learning year.

We're prepping for NZ Correspondence School courses, for credit, next year. 

 

We've just started our 2017 academic schooling year and for US 10/ NZ 11 DD selected the following:

 

She's aiming for an end result, in 3 years time, of having gained University Entrance.   She has no plans, at this stage, to go to University as the courses DD would like to do during her last 2 years of highschool can be achieved via Te Kura (Correspondence School) & a brick and mortar Community College.   

 

Bible:  New Testament Studies

History:  Church History AD 64 - Present,  NZ History (NCEA)  

Math:  Mathbuddy (CTC equivalent for NZ) and NCEA  Math Level 1 & 2  (selections)      

English:   EiW 10,  EiL 9 (selections), NCEA English Level 1 & 2 (selections)

Literature: Part 1 of British Literature 

Science:  Agricultural Studies   

Language: French  & wants to restart Visual Latin.        Both of these courses are being done in a very, delight led, casual manner.
