Typical course of study for Grade 8.  Appropriate for Grades 7 - 8.

The following lists our core recommendations for students in Grade 8. You will not be buying every book or only the books listed. Students have a wide variety of abilities and aptitudes; schooling — especially homeschooling — needs to be adapted to different children in different ways. Your advisor will work with you to (a) match each child’s strengths and weaknesses to specific materials; (b) combine your students in texts and subjects as often as possible; (c) choose a religion, history and science focus for the family for the year; and (d) weave materials you may already have or would prefer to use into your family’s course plan.
