7th grade consisted of buying $500.00 worth of books, writing my own lesson plan and schedule, with minimum success.
8th grade consisted of registering at an online academy; again with minimal success.
9th grade has me rethinking this whole situation. Although I know what the basic requirements are for each high school grade in Michigan in order for my daughter to get a diploma, the emphasis will be on the things that interest her. The things she is passionate about, as well as the things that challenge her.
So she is starting French, working through some pre-test SAT books, reading about Joan of Ark, and practicing math skills.
I have no idea what the coming weeks will bring, but I certainly feel much better about this method than the previous ones I have tried.
More to come!
