An Ambleside Online Student's Year 12 Booklist

Ambleside Online has (or, rather, had, when this was posted in 2007) no official plan for Year 12 yet. This is what my son will be doing for his senior year. Year 12 students will typically be holding down a job, finalizing college plans, and preparing for their life after high school, and may thus have less time for academics than in previous years. View more of our daily schedules here.

History for this plan is ancient Greece, ancient Rome, and (based on my son's personal interest) pre-Rome Britain. This is based on Ambleside Online, using suggestions from posts to the HEO email list from Lynn Bruce, Carol Hepburn, and others. This plan does not include Poetry, which is included with literature in works such as The Aeneid and Beowulf.

A 36-week schedule is posted below.
