What are the different cirucullum you are using for homeschooling your high school kids?

I am sure I spelled cirucullum wrong! I am homeschooling my kids virtually right now and would like to stop the virtual and use books...any suggestions?

  • Your local college/university will have lots of textbooks for sale, and a lot of them are available for check-out at the campus library. Lots of the 101 courses in college are just repeats of high school stuff, so this would be where I would start looking for books.

    (We're considering homeschooling ours when school age is reached).

  • You may want to further your education, before taking on the critical task of educating another person

  • change schools?
    or continue using virtual but add books?
    im an audio/visual learner so using ONLY books would kill me!
    so using both methods is probably best.

  • Thank you for all the suggestions. I appreciate them. @rkoloms Why would you think I need to further my education? My daughter has a 3.89 GPA at the end of this school year.....should I go back to school to help her get a 4.0? It is up to the kids to learn, and it is apparent that my education has not a thing to do with this conversation. You do not know what my qualifications are!

    @Liz4Life I think both visual and books will be the best. My daughter is a book learner whereas my son is visual. Thanks for the suggestions!
