The Teenager’s Freshman Year Pile of Books …

freshman book pile

It’s a hefty pile of books to be sure, but I know he’s up to the task.  This year’s classes include:

Classical Writing:  Herodotus (argumentative writing) – the Teen takes Kathy Weitz’s superb online tutorial

Great Books II – another online class, this one with Artesian Wells

Traditional Logic

Geometry – Euclid’s Geometry & Life of Fred Geometry

Henle Latin 3 & Lingua Latina

finishing Machen’s New Testament Greek

history is sprinkled throughout Great Books, Latin, Classical Writing & Bible.

He's so studious! It sounds like a great first year...I would love to take that traditional logic class. That strikes a chord...

The C man might look because he's stumbled upon one of the great secrets of life: most of his 9th grade studies, unless he wishes to work for Microsoft in the future, are a blatant waste of time. There goes my computer for the weekend...
