Essaying the Past: How to Read, Write, and Think About History. Over the years we have done some very in-depth studies in history and now we're working on writing and critical thinking. This is our first year using this material so we'll see how it goes.
American Heritage: Book of Great American Speeches for Young People. This will also be a resource for critical thinking and writing.
Daily Writing Fundamentals. Yes, more writing.
Rosetta Stone Italian 2. He loved the first and I'm sure he'll love the 2nd.
Last year I was terrified of starting to teach high school. It is very scary to see the end so close and easy to fear that you haven't taught your child enough to get to the next leg in their education--college. As we being grade 10 it has gotten easier, but I am still fearful of transcripts. I am hoping that next year that part will seem like no big deal as well.
I have three other children going into 8th, 6th, and 5th. If I get a chance I will give a detailed list of their materials later this week.
