Grade 11 Homeschool Curriculum

I really enjoy the mental challenge that comes with homeschooling a student in the upper grades. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I’ve never taught these courses before. Whatever the reason, I have had a lot of fun researching and choosing the specific courses that Brandon will be using for his junior year.

    I just realized that you had already posted your curriculum choices for 11th grade. My son, who will be an 11th grader this year, all of a sudden decided that he wants to homeschool for his last two years. I homeschool my younger kids grades 7th-toddler but the year we switched to homeschool my older children hated it and begged to return to the public charter school they came from. I suddenly have to navigate through transcripts and credits.
    This is what I plan for my son so far this year.
    Math – Teaching Textbooks Geometry- He has already taken Algebra 1 and 2 in school and that is what his transcript is missing.
    English 3- Switched on Schoolhouse language arts 11th grade- I was blessed to find older edition SOS entire curriculum grades 8-11 in a free box at our local co-op. The Lord new before I did. There are only two pieces of literature that go with SOS Eng. 3 and I will see how I goes before I add more.
    History- Switched on Schoolhouse Geography and Civics- it is for their 9th grade but geography is what is missing from his transcript.
    Science- He wants physics on his transcript so I bought AO Life Pac physics used from E-bay. I am also going to look at the free Easy Peasy high school physics that should be finished August 1st.
    Elective- Online SAT prep through the College Board.
    Elective- He is going to take a high school writing class at our local co-op. This is his weak area.
    He will also be making SAT vocabulary flash card from Spark Notes 1000 most common words.
    I am following our Texas Education Agency recommend graduation plan because he plans to attends a 4 year college but it is not required.

    • Wow, Tammy–physics! I haven’t had to tackle physics so far; we did do chemistry last year using Apologia, and it went pretty well. I like the idea of the co-op writing class. For some reason, writing is especially difficult for me to teach.
      I’d also love to know what you think of the SOS geography and civics. I will have more children needing those courses soon, and I’m always looking for the best fit for each child. :-)
