Let's start with our core subjects:
We are returning to the series we love. We took a break from this series last year to focus more on creative writing. So, instead of skipping the 8th grade book we will be picking right up where we left off. There are only 2 High School level books in the series so it will still work out fine in the long run.
I really enjoy this series as the teachers guides are easy to use and they incorporate passages from actual books in all the lessons. The Book Studies this year are particularly interesting as two of the books deal with smuggling Bibles.
So we are ready to start French and this curriculum is a great place to start. It might be our first year of French (we dabbled a little last year with this but decided to take a break from foreign languages) but I already know this curriculum will be great. It is published by Memoria Press who are the same folks who designed the Latin curriculum we have been using since third grade. Why French? Because, a third of the English language is derived from French that's why.
So What About Electives?
