This could have been my 17th year of homeschooling but there were two years that all schoolage children went to school - one year was wonderful and the other not so much. So here I am in year 15 - by the time John graduates I'll have homeschooled for 20 years; it will then be time to retire. :)
So what is happening in year 15?
We have our true, tried and tested curriculum that we go back to time and time again with a few new additions along the way.
Religion: Didache Series for high school; Abigail is studying History of the Church. For John and Theresa - Faith and Life series 7th and 8th grade.
Math: Abigail is taking Pre-Calculus Algebra online through University of Alabama's Early College program in the Fall.. Theresa is continuing with Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra. John took the program for a test drive this summer but decided to stick with Saxon Algebra 1/2 instead.
Science: Abigail is taking a break from hardcore science with Marine Biology while John and Theresa are studying General Science all using Apologia texts.
History: Abigail is studying Early US History using selected lessons in Tapestry of Grace Year 2 Rhetoric. John is using the entire program at the Dialectic level to study World History from Medieval times through Early US History. Theresa wanted a break from living books so she is studying US History with a textbook - Our Pioneers and Patriots which will occasionally be supplemented with historical fiction and biographies.
English: Abigail is starting out the year with a course in Short Stories using lectures from The Great Courses. John is studying a range of literature in addition to composition and grammar with Tapestry of Grace Year 2 Dialectic. Theresa is trying out something new for our family - Lightning Literature.
And then there are electives of course:
Abigail - Musical Theater, Theater Appreciation, Voice. Probable courses in the Spring - Logic or Consumer Math, Economics or Psychology, and English Literature.
Theresa and John - Art, Music, Karate
