10th Grade Homeschool Curriculum Overview: 2022-2023

This overview includes a recap of our plans for the new school year as well as our 10th grade homeschool curriculum.

10th Grade Homeschool Curriculum Overview

If you have been following my weekly lesson plan series, you know that our curriculum choices certainly ebb and flow throughout the school year. Any interest-led learning plan requires a certain amount of flexibility.

With this in mind, I am beginning this new school year with a rough idea of what we will be using for curriculum. These choices are enough to get my son started in 10th grade, but will likely shift as we move through the year. As of today, there are 18 school weeks left for us in 2022. At the very least, I imagine these choices will carry us though the holidays.

Requirements For Homeschooling 10th Grade In Our State

In our state, the requirements for any one grade level are not defined. Essentially, I have to be able to show that we completed educational hours, 180 days of the year. That’s it.

Having said that, I do loosely follow the state guidelines for each grade level as a way of formatting my son’s high school transcript. These are the courses typically required for 10th grade in our state:

  • Language Arts 10
  • Integrated Math 10
  • Physical Science
  • Social Studies
  • Electives
  • Physical Education

Interest-Led Curriculum Choices

My son and I sat down a few weeks ago and came up with the following list of topics he would like to learn and focus on this school year.

  1. Music Technology – mixing, recording, etc.
  2. Chemistry
  3. Literature Study via Audiobooks
  4. Vocabulary, Spelling, and Writing
  5. World Cultures and Geography
  6. Art
  7. Guitar
  8. Rock Climbing
  9. Possibly French

He also made it very clear that he would like to try more online options for learning this year. I have mixed emotions about this.

First off, he typically retains information to a much greater degree when we employ a variety of modalities in his learning. Conversely, I love the idea of trying online options that allow him more independence. I also recognize that many future employers may have video based training programs. This exposure will help him beyond this school year.
