Curriculum for 11th Grade 2015 - 2016

This year many of Grace's classes for her 11th grade year will be outside of the home. It has come to the time that many of her more advanced high school subjects I don't have the knowledge to teach and quite frankly I also don't have the time to learn it with her. So saying all that - this is what her 11th grade year will look like:

Chemistry - Outside of the home through Faith Christian Academy.

Geometry - Outside of the home through Faith Christian Academy.

MLA Essay - Outside of the home with her favorite teacher in the world Ms. Christy at Creative Canvas.

Analytical Literature - Outside of the home with Ms. Christy.

Economics - The one lonely subject this year that will be taught at home is Economics for Everybody from Compass Classroom. Love this company. My first choice would have been to continue the American History course (the first set of DVDs we have just about finished and gets us to the end of the Civil War), but the next set of DVDs won't be ready until her senior year. We hope to finish Economics by Christmas but with her heavy load of other classes I really think it will run over into the next semester. Since Economics is a 1/2 credit course we will follow it up with a Government course next semester that will probably bleed over into the summer.

Volleyball - This is the first year that Grace will play a team sport and she is uber excited about it. We will have a very intense schedule of practices all through July and August continuing on into September and October. The games will be August, September and October.

Cooperative - Tuesday afternoons will still be fine arts days at the Cooperative. Due to her classes at Faith Christian (which is the location of the Cooperative) she will not be able to take a 2:00 class with the Cooperative. Her other chosen classes are Ballroom Dance, High School Art, and Drama.

Summer Job - In two short weeks she will start her first summer job that may continue on through the school year if we can get it all worked out. With volleyball in the picture I'm not sure how that will happen, but if she likes the work (and the money) she may try to make it happen a couple of afternoons and evenings a week.

I can't believe my little girl is growing up so much. Just call me the human taxi cab this fall because we will be in the car a lot traveling to numerous places for class and activities.

We are still trying to figure out what V will be doing in addition to her music courses. I would like to have her in Latin with me, but I don't want her overwhelmed with Accel courses. Yes, it is hard to let them go, and more importantly to know WHEN to let them go.
