10th/11th Course of Study
This year most of the courses are offered through our Homeschool co-op or Landry Academy.
US History- This will be a co-op class. The teacher is using American History: Observations and Assessments for Creation to Today by James Stobaugh for the Co-op class. Along with that, those who are ready will try and pass the CLEP test.
American Literature-This will also be a co-op class. The teacher will be creating the class syllabus, so I am waiting for that list. But this will also have the option of doing CLEP testing at the end.
Personal Finance- This is also a co-op class. The teacher is using Dave Ramsey’s Homeschool Finance program. This will be a 1-semester course.
Thinking Like a Christian– Worldview study using the curriculum by that title. This is also a co-op class offered for one semester following the Finance class.
Writing A Novel in a Year- this course is offered through Landry Academy. This is a 2-semester course. I am excited about the possibilities for her.
Programming with Python- this course is a one-semester course offered by Landry Academy.
Drama- our co-op started the His Kids Drama Company and they will be putting on The Hobbit. She loved drama last year so she is continuing.
What’s left at home?
Grammar- I am going to try one more program in hopes that she will catch on. We are trying Jensen’s Grammar DVDs. She liked Jensen’s Punctuation and Format Writing so I am hoping she will like this.
CLEP study prep-originally my plan was that she would CLEP over the summer but we have gotten sidetracked (due to her Drama class, camps, etc). So now I think I will have her chose one CLEP to work on until she is ready to take the test.
Here are the following CLEPS she will work towards:
