Homeschooling Plan 2015-2016

This is technically Haley's 8th grade year. I have been going back and forth with a number of things when planning for this year. I am trying to keep everything doable with our busy music/travel schedule while still covering everything I want her to learn and that she wants to learn. I went back and forth with science this year. She did High School level Biology this year and my original plan was Chemistry but then with all her other subjects especially a rather heavy history plan (and lack of a burning desire to actually do chemistry), I decided Chemistry can wait until next year. This being her last non-high school year, I'd have her do more of an overview of science course and fit in some science subjects she is interested in like zoology which she has not gotten to delve into in depth.

Here's the plan for this year:

          Algebra 2: PLATO Algebra 2 
          English: Windows to the World
                        The Power in Your Hands
         World Literature
                         Work with writing tutor weekly
           Latin: Second Form Latin (one lesson per week)
           History: The History of the Ancient World/ workbook
  with various Teaching Company video lectures
           Science: Joy of Science videos with experiments in Chemistry and Zoology
           French: Bon Voyage (1 chapter every 2-3 weeks)
           Music Theory: Well Trained Mind Academy Intermediate Music Theory 
           Art: The Annotated Mona Lisa by Carol Strickland 

This plan is not set in stone and may change depending on how the year progresses and leaving room for some bunny trails as needed.
