Level 11

( Grade 11 – Age 16-18 )

Build Your Library: Level 11 - World History, Part 2This year is a continuation of World History that we began in Level 10. We’ll continue reading the hilarious and information-packed series Cartoon History of the Modern World by Larry Gonick. Using these two books as our spine, we’ll delve deeper into the material using a variety of living books and resources to get a deep understanding of history and the people who lived it.

This year’s literature provides a peek into history through the eyes of people who lived during major events (historical as well as fictional). Follow Waman as he sees the great Incan Empire fall apart with the arrival of the gold-hungry Spanish in The Gold Eaters. View how the slave trade affected both the Africans who remained and those who were sold into slavery in Homegoing, and experience life in a concentration camp with the enigmatic Dita Kraus in The Librarian of Auschwitz. We’ll also learn about poetic forms and write our own poetry using The Making of a Poem: A Norton Anthology of Poetic Forms.

This year’s science focus is Chemistry using the free text CK-12 Chemistry For High School Flexbook as our spine and fleshed out with a few well-chosen living books to make the subject come alive.

This year’s elective is History of the English Language. You will delve into a study of word origins and the history of language using Excavating English  as our spine, along with some fascinating books about grammar, the history of words, and the making of the Oxford dictionary.

This is going to be an amazing year of learning!
