independent work planner

When our eldest got to 15 years of age we worked together to come up with a wee table to help her chart the formal work she intended doing. At the beginning of the year it was blank; in consultation with us and in conjunction with the Life Skills pages and the Study Topics pages, she filled it in. Because she was having a little difficulty working out how much to read each day/week, we added a colour-coding key to give her a goal to attain to. If you cannot make head nor tail of it and actually *want* to, pop a note in the comments and I’ll explain it more clearly.

Short explanation: For Bible study and Bible devotional, there are options to choose from (and highly recommended parental suggestions) on the Bible page. Mathematics options will eventually be recorded here. There’s already a fairly comprehensive list of Government options on this page. On the Worldview and Logic page there are required readings (no mere suggestion those!). And so on and so on. You get the idea. (Possibly you’ll go looking for the historical reading master list or the selection of short stories – please allow me to warn you, you will not find them – not YET….but one day….)

There is not space to insert the table in all its glory on the blog, so here’s a link to it in googledocs. In that format it looks kinda manky, but if you click on “Download” at the top of the page it looks much nicer.
