7th Grade: L Year 6 2008-2009 daily schedule

L does better taking books a little bit at a time. Where his brothers could do three sections of Augustus Caesar's World in one sitting, L does better if I break that up over three days. So it looks like he's doing more reading, but that's because, although he has more books each day, he has smaller portions of each one.

Books Used:

History:
The Story of the World, Volume 4: The Modern Age by Susan Wise Bauer (second half)
The Story of the Greeks by H. A. Guerber
The Story of the Romans by H. A. Guerber
The Story of Mankind by Hendrick Van Loon, ch 66-71
Augustus Caesar's World by Genevieve Foster
Genesis, Finding Our Roots by Ruth Beechick
Never Give In (about Winston Churchill) by Stephen Mansfield

Geography:
The Story of David Livingstone by Vautier Golding

Science/Nature:
The Boy Scientist by John Bryan Lewellen
Secrets of the Universe: Universal Laws of Science by Paul Fleisher (readaloud with Mom)
School of the Woods by William J. Long (readaloud with Mom)
The Sea Around Us by Rachael Carson (readaloud with Mom)
Albert Einstein and the Theory of Relativity by Robert Cwiklik
Archimedes and the Door of Science by Jeanne Bendick
Galileo and the Magic Numbers by Sidney Rosen

Literature:
Poetry for Young People series William Wordsworth edited by Dr. Alan Liu
Poetry for Young People series Henry Wadsworth Longfellow edited by Frances Schoonmaker
Poetry for Young People series Edgar Allan Poe edited by Brod Bagert
Animal Farm by George Orwell
The Iliad (unabridged on audio)
Age of Fable by Thomas Bulfinch (L wasn't ready for this in Year 4, so we're going to try it as a readaloud, the whole book, on Saturdays, starting in the summer)
He already read The Hobbit, and I didn't relace it in his curriculum.
Family Readalouds:
Sir Gawaine and the Green Knight by Burton Raffel
Beowulf by Burton Raffel
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Sir Gibbie by George MacDonald

Math:
Unsure what we'll be using, possibly returning to Math-U-See after an unsuccessful year of Ray's Arithmetic
