Year 7

(July 2016-June 2017)

  • Chemistry of Living Things (tutorial class)
  • Read-aloud books (We will be taking turns reading to each other and discussing along the way.)
    • The Story of Science: Aristotle Leads the Way
    • The Story of Science: Newton at the Center (We plan to read the first half of this book during year 7 and complete it, along with the third/final book in the series, during year 8.) 


History & Social Justice
We will continue our chronological study of American history (with additional focus on WWII, per his request).



    We haven't done much writing up to this point because he just hasn't been interested.  This year, however, he will have writing assignments in his literature tutorial class.  We'll also set aside time at home for creative writing with Elegy for a Dead World
