I am planning my son's 9th grade curriculum this fall. I would love to hear what others have done for high school. I'm leaning towards following the Well Trained Mind or buying Oak Meadow's 9th grade.
We have always homeschooled.
I emailed a local college about their requirements for homeschoolers. He responded and also added his opinion on homeschoolers and math/science.
Here is what he said:
"My experience with home-schooled applicants is that their Verbal areas (English and Composition Skills) are quite good; however, their math and lab science areas are weak. It seems that most homeschool instructors do not have the teaching skills in these areas."
I went to college. I took all the required courses in high school to go to college. I don't want to cause my child to be "weak" in these areas, so please tell me what you would suggest for high school science and math.
