re: Show me your high school line up

When I was starting my oldest (and my middle kid too) going into grade 9, I used this planning sheet (from my cover school) to help fill in a 4 year plan. It is set up in mind for college bound.

For my youngest, who is on special ed path, we used this as a guide to fill in the 4 years.

Hope some of those planning sheets help you with 4 year plan.

My youngest is going into grade 10 this year. She will have an English (special ed kind), Math (intro alg), 2 Sciences (scheduling them block style so each year is done in a semester) of Intro Biology and Conceptual Chemistry. Health semester, Spanish 1, and then semester of Piano 2 will fit in there.

Grade 9:

re: Show me your high school line up

Grade 12 (my last one, "sniff")

Bible: BJU Bible Truths

Math: Abeka Consumer Math

Social Studies: Land of Fair Play and some Uncle Eric books for Civics, Abeka Economics

Science: PAC ICP (Physics part), LOF Physics along with the Zillions of Practice Problems, Quality Science Labs Physics Set

English: Haven't put this all together yet, but have purchased and looking over PAC's English Writing Skills, and we have a list of several books to read for literature along with a reading journal (which we are designing ourselves), and thinking of Editor in Chief. The PAC English looks quite good and comprehensive so far. Had in mind their 4th level English, but it looks very rigorous for my ds.

Computer Literacy: gcflearning online

PE: basketball

Fine Arts: guitar

Edited to say .... oops, I just noticed you are looking at grades 9 and 10 .... sorry!

re: Show me your high school line up

Thank you everyone for all of the info and links for the planning pages. Looks great! This is so helpful. And no worries about posting for 12 th grade. We will get there eventually and it gives me something to think about and plan for.
I started looking at MFW today. It says it includes English/literature. I just need to add Math, Science and Electives.
I don't know if I want to go that route. I just need something sort of planned out for me at this point. Any other ideas of what's out there besides MFW that is preplanned?
