What does it mean to be human? This is a question we humans have been asking for millennia, it is also the question I’ll be asking my son as he enters high school. I’m currently in the process of pulling together my soon to be 9th grade son’s freshman curriculum. At it’s core every single class he’ll be taking asks this same question. I’m excited to see what he learns and how he answers this timeless question for himself.
Next year, I’ll be home schooling high school. What! I made things up as I went for most of my son’s eighth grade year, but for ninth grade, I feel the need to plan ahead. Here is what my son will be reading in the 9th Grade World Literature course that I’m creating for him.
