For anyone who has looked at the high school page, I wanted to show you how one of those courses could be used. I’ve started using the 9th grade literature and composition online class from Georgia Virtual Learning as a base for my 8th Level English.
I’ve added answer keys for the grammar assignments, grading rubrics, extra reading and assignments, vocabulary and other resources and organized it day by day just like we are used to.
Since it is “officially” a high school level course, it could be counted on a transcript. I’ve made up a simple grade sheet to record grades and list right on the directions each day what to record and guidelines for how to assign grades for writing assignments.
I’m still not going to get to the high school courses for awhile. It’s still at least a year away, but this will give you an idea of how we can use those online courses.
As you look through the curriculum, anywhere it says “Read page 4 about…” is a link to the online curriculum. I can only link to the main page of each unit, so I always have to write what page to go to.
Here’s the link again: 8th Level English
Thank you for all the hard work you put into this. I am new to homeschooling of a highschooler and really have no clue where to find courses that are legal that will count as credit for my son’s graduation..Help!
There are no “legal” or “illegal” courses. In some states your son could play video games for four years and then you could announce he’s graduated. First, know your state’s requirements. Do they require certain subjects?
I have put together an order of courses that would be for those who are thinking of college. (Even if they aren’t, why not have the best education you can?)
I haven’t put together the high school courses yet, but on the high school page there are online courses listed on that page that you can use. I have the courses listed by subject at the top and then lower down by grade and “program year” to match the younger students using the curriculum.
If you have a 9th grader, you could consider using 8th level (it’s a 9th grade English course) and then algebra 1 or other math listed on the high school page. Then you need to choose a history and science topic and an elective such as foreign language. Then one more course would be needed, maybe your son is involved in music, sports, art, computer,…something that you could count for credit.
You are the school administrator. The transcript you make is official because you wrote it!
