My last post shared the struggle I faced in choosing high school curriculum for my daughter. I really appreciate all the encouragement and suggestions that you offered me. Today I share the actual books I chose.
I bought my books at Christianbook.com (affiliate link) because I could get all of this in one fell swoop. (Links below are affiliate links.)
The video element is not great, but you can listen to it instead of watching. The audio is fine. (I have new equipment in the mail.) Or just read the post below.
Ninth Grade Book Choices
MATH: Teaching Textbooks Algebra 1 ($185)
Teaching Textbooks is working for us, so we have every intention of continuing on through the high school years. I think the audio component of this curriculum is a great fit for Emma.
When Sheri Seligson told me at Great Homeschool Convention Cincinnati that Apologia had an audio book version, I was sold on this choice. Emma does well with audio books, so the extra $21 was a welcome expense! I wish every homeschool curriculum had this option. I looked high and low to find a history curriculum that was audio based, and I couldn’t find one.
Now that I have this in my possession, I am very unsure about Notgrass. But we will try and see. That’s all I can say.
The literature course covers these books which we will either pull from our collection, download from public domain sources, check out from the library, or buy from thrift stores. Thus the cost will be minimal.
- Pilgrim’s Progress
- Julius Caesar
- Pride and Prejudice
- Hiding Place
- Animal Farm
- Cat of Bubastes
- Heart of Darkness
- Mere Christianity
- Imitation of Christ
- Tale of Two Cities
- Eric Liddell: Pure Gold Biography
- Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther
- Abolition of Man
