    Cool What Curriculum Is Everyone Using For The 2014-2015 School Year??

    I would LOVE to hear what you homeschool high school moms are using and what classes you are covering for whichever year you're on. We aren't there yet, but I'm pondering what we will possibly use. I'm kind of a planner.....it helps keep me calm. LOL

    Here's what we have so far:

    DD (will be a senior):
    English lit, writing (essays, poems, short stories--she wants to be a writer); also essays for college admissions and scholarships (yup, I count it ala Lee Binz)
    Math - statistics; not sure on a test yet, probably something social sciences based in outlook
    Astronomy - using a Great Courses DVD to start, maybe a dual credit class too
    Spanish 201 (3rd semester dual credit)
    Economics - Bluestocking guide, most likely
    World History/Music - Discovering Music by Carol Reynolds
    ...maybe Basic Psychology and/or Sociology dual credit

    DS (will be a junior):
    Math - Calculus (dual credit)
    Science - biology using text and labs by Miller & Levine)
    English lit, writing--more essay practice for SAT/ACT prep and research papers, not creative writing
    Economics - Bluestocking guide, most likely
    World History/Music - Discovering Music by Carol Reynolds
    Spanish 101 (1st semester dual credit)
    Computer programming - totally self taught; I can't even BEGIN to tell you how he learns it

    I don't know the details yet, but I know they will still be using Time4Learning for their main curriculum. My oldest daughter will be taking some classes at the local career center in design. My 8th grader started 9th grade curriculum last year, so we will finish that off instead of skipping her ahead.

    Few more details:

    My preschoolers will be doing some weekly theme studies that I put together and A Beka phonics charts and Bob Books.
    My son will be continuing with Time4Learning, Apologia anatomy and physiology, Teaching Textbooks.
    My high school daughters will have some Time4Learning, Shmoop courses for English and History, Teaching Textbooks, and I'm putting together a Film Appreciation elective.

    We use Time4Learning for our main curriculum, but we also use other resources as well: LGFK, VSC, unit studies, educational TV, etc.!
