One of the resources that we’ve been utilizing this past year is Schoolhouseteachers.com. While it can be an all-inclusive resource for homeschoolers, we’ve been using it as a supplement, particularly for 9th grade.
For example, in English/Lit we have used the writing class as a fill in to make things well rounded. Each writing assignment is broken down into a month of weekly assignments. Some of them are fairly simple … then there’s also challenging authors such as G. K. Chesterton. He’s a fun read once you get the hang of his wit.
This year they are adding/have added so many classes! There’ a whole slew of classes being added over the next few months. The huge variety of choices are overwhelming! I haven’t had a chance to go through them all yet but a couple are already on our roster:
*Middle school spelling
*Hands-On Architecture for Beginners
This will be for Duel. He enjoys building so I’m really hoping that this will inspire him to further his skills.
*Middle Ages History
We are going to be entering the middle ages this year in Mystery of History, so I should be able to use this to supplement! We’re going to be taking our time exploring the middle ages !
Pookie is studying British literature for 10th grade so this should fir it nicely!
good supplement for the curriculum we’re purchasing
I can never have enough math resources!
And most exciting to add is Experience Videomaking!
Our kids have SO many ideas for productions!
I think what’s holding them back, aside from time, is simple the semantics of following through. Hopefully this will help them transition from thinking to DOING!
Plus, as a member I get coupons for other programs!
We’ve already decided to use Hoffman Academy and EIW Grammar
– both of which are included in the coupon section!
