I'm new to the high school board for this coming year as my dd14 is starting 9th grade.  I've been with WTM forums for 9 years this month and in the K-8 boards, I know there was always a post going for each grade and what everyone was using.  I haven't seen one on this forum, please tell me they don't stop!  I really enjoyed reading what others do.  Ours isn't as advanced or fancy as most but it works for us.  Here are our plans for 9th grade:

Core Subjects
English I - GWTM; Vocabulary from Classical Roots; WWS; Book list
Algebra I - Saxon Algebra I; Saxon Teacher CDs; Art Reed DVDs
Latin I - Latina Christiana I & II
Biology I - Self Teaching Guide to Biology; Biology 101 DVDs, kits, etc.
World History & Geography - Encyclopedias and other books; Videos
Traditional Logic I - Memoria Press

Electives
Intro to Aviation - Flight school online & Flight hours
Information Technology - Digital Savvy (CompuScholar)
Computer Keyboarding - Typing Instructor
Bible - MP Christian Studies III & IV

PE/Health

There's a high school plans thread around here somewhere, but I haven't seen any for individual grades. I have a 9th grader this year, so I'll play ?

English: finishing up WWS, Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind, and a year long world mythology study

Math: Foerster Algebra 2 and Art of Problem Solving

Spanish: online at Georgia Virtual School

Biology: online at Georgia Virtual School

Social Studies: AP World History, if I can pull stuff together and get him ready for the exam

Music: piano lessons and homeschool band (starting clarinet and playing keyboards in jazz band)

he's also doing a homeschool math team and just started volunteering at a house rabbit shelter (he's there right now for the first time; hope it's going well!)

and he might take a class dual enrollment at CC next semester--maybe some kind of programming or game design

They still do those here! I think there may have been a combined 9-12 one earlier in the year.

I'll have a 9th grader too. My ducks are not in a row, but I'll try. (Frankly I don't have ducks. They're more like squirrels at a rave...)

English 9: either Windows to the World or the Great Courses science fiction set for lit, we'll work on writing regularly using various resources, probably including Wordsmith Craftsman and Writing With a Thesis

Math: Geometry is next I suppose. Jacobs I think.

History: She is pushing hard to do government and economics instead of history. I'm not sure she knows what she's asking for, not for lack of my trying, but she's bloody tired of history. I might have to get creative here. Maybe she needs to cook around the world under the guise of geography?

Science: We'd planned on Spectrum Chemistry, but I'm having second thoughts. See end of the post.

Spanish: continue in Destinos wherever we left off and go forward from there

Electives: art appreciation with Sister Wendy and a local arts center, coding (with something I'll figure out)

She's at a place where she can easily perform at a high school level but she's just not invested in it. Puberty has run amok. That gap year of volunteering or *something* in Rethinking School is sounding better and better. ?

ETA: I bought up what we should do for literature again and she asked if we could do another Shakespeare year. So there's that.

My squirrels are also at a rave, I think.

Geometry will definitely be Jacob's. We're going to delay Spanish until they can do it at the CC, since that's free. I just couldn't afford the other options without sacrificing so that's that, I guess.

History and literature is self-planned. World lit. We're going to do non-Western Civ and lit for 9th and then do Western Civ/lit for 10th and US for 11th. At least, that's currently the plan. Finally putting stuff together and it's fun, since I've been reading lots of African and Asian lit.

Physics. They're going to do Conceptual Physics and I'm going to beef it up with actual experiments. I have a kit.

Electives... they're both doing creative writing, psychology, architecture, and one is doing python and the other is doing a debate class. I think that stuff will shake out to be about a half credit each thing. We'll see.

I've got two 9th graders:

Year Long Courses:

Math--one will finish Algebra I--He's got a couple of units left in Lial's not sure if we'll plant in Algebra using other materials for a while afterward or go on to geometry at some point, but I'm leaning toward putting some more things together to make a full year of Algebra for him. The other is biding time with Algebra review while I decide what to use for Geometry. He'll do geometry this year when I get myself together.

LA--we're finishing WTTW, then I am going to use Oak Meadow Hero's Journey; one son is using various CLE materials too right now--that may or may not stop when we get to Oak Meadow's curriculum

Biology with a coop teacher

World History-I'm using The Student's Friend as a "spine" so we have time to explore rabbit trails and really dig in where we went to dig in (though I have a textbook too as one of my particularly loves history)

Latin-- continuing right now, but I may switch one kiddo to a living language when we finish the current book

Semester clective ideas--a lot less sure of this:

PE for both for sure. I may use drawing for one son's elective--I'm not sure on the other kid, but I'm leaning toward a study skills type credit for him if I can't think of something he'll love.  I was still working through a logic curriculum at the end of last year. We may finish that. One son definitely puts enough time into robotics to make an elective, but I think I'll keep that as extracurricular

The plan for mine is:

Math - TT Algebra 1

English - a book list for literature accompanied by a few literary essays, R&S Reading for a few more lit terms and some coverage of short stories and poetry, composition will consist of turning his written narrations into essays and a couple of research papers. He will also do Easy Grammar Ultimate 9.

History - Notgrass Exploring World History part 1, plus some map work and keeping a timeline notebook

Science - Apologia Biology

Electives - he wants to keep on with French and he'll do Computer Science and some extra things to make it a half credit of computer skills, I'll also give him a half credit of PE.

There is a 9th grade thread, but very hard to find using search engine.  Don't worry, lots of planning and ideas on this level, too!

Dd is transitioning between 9th and 10th...some Algebra I to finish, waiting on essays/comps to be graded through online service.  

Welcome to the high school boards...

Arcadia, I like your a-g organization (for us UCalif hopefuls) so hope you don't mind if I copy the format. Helps me get my mind in order. 

This is for my rising 9th grader. 2nd in high school for me.

History/social science (“a”)  - World History (no idea yet) - could be at-home AP Human Geography... up in the air

English (“b”) - IEW SICC-C + WttW

Mathematics (“c”) - Geometry w/ Jann in TX (myhomeschoolmathclass)

Laboratory science (“d”) - Biology w/ WTMA (no more Mrs. Up - boo-hoo)

Language other than English (“e”)  - Spanish 1 w/ Homeschool Spanish Academy 

Visual and performing arts (“f”) - maybe Photography course w/ FundaFunda (no idea)

Math - Geometry by Jurgensen  and continuing the Art of Problem Solving Introductory Algebra from chapter 10 on. Not sure how this is going to work, but she didn't want a whole year of only geometry

Science - Biology Science Shepherd

Latin - Henle 1 she has been doing this for several years so she will finish the book this year. I don't see how anyone gets this book done in 1 year

History - Ancient   this year the history and literature blends together more and there is not a fine distinction, I plan and choose materials for both

Literature - Ancient  

English - Doing this on my own this year with no curriculum for my 5-12th graders. Scary. Trying a writer's workshop approach(I think that is what you would call it). 

Elective - Javascript programming using Code for Teens by Jeremy Moritz    (we started school this week and she is loving this)

6 credits  (Lit and elective are 1/2 credit each but done half time for the whole year)

She'll also do some personal fitness every morning for PE. We participate in a speech and debate club during the fall, so she'll write/present some speeches. This will be her first time doing team policy debate, so there will be a LOT of research and writing for that. Then in winter and spring we are in a drama troupe so she'll act and/or do backstage work in that as well. It should be a good year!

What do you think about Apologia's Health?  Does it look good?  I've only seen a sample but thinking of getting it to add to Biology.

I like it. It looks very interesting and the projects seem very practical. I’m excited to go through it with her. It’s scheduled for three days a week. They recommend doing it with Biology. My DD doesn’t like science so we’re taking a year off from the more traditional science courses to do a History of Science course.

I am making my own this year. Lots of reading, with discussion and essay questions. Not much else.

So, for weeks 1 & 2, Ds14 will read O. Henry short stories and The Hound of the Baskervilles, while Dd15 will read The Jungle. (Sometimes they will read the same lit and history, sometimes not.) Both will read a Teddy Roosevelt biography, The Shepherd of the Hills, at least the first 100 pages of David McCullough's biography The Wright Brothers, and a chapter from America: A Narrative History. Week 3 they will read a set of comic books called Boxers and Saints as well as The Cherry Orchard. They will also do a Jackdaw on the Boer Wars. I'll have them answer some essay questions and write one essay per week. And that will cover the first decade for lit and history.

I hope it goes well. They enjoy reading, and I tried to give them a good mix of books.

ETA: I'm sure that was more than anyone wanted to know, but I am excited.

DS13 is aiming for the Graphics Design classes because he wants to learn the Adobe suite and they would count for UC and CSU. 

ETA:

He is interested in this one

“Introduction to graphic design and visual communication. Projects include composition, typography, image editing and logo design. Design principles are explored through creative projects. Students practice fundamental software skills using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign to complete the graphic design activities in this course.”
