Ethan my 8th grade son has been using The Thinking Tree full time for a while. I need to gather all his journals and write about it in more detail.

He's currently using:
The Library Based Journal for Boys
How to Make Money
Timeline of World History
Are You a Math Genius
And he'll probably start United States Geography soon as well.
Here is a page from his Library Based Journal. The lines on the copywork pages are too far apart for Ethan so we added some more.
8th grade plans that I wrote back in June and it has changed a bit from in October too. Mostly the writing. I really need to buckle down and stick with a writing program with him. Yikes, crazy me. My two oldest were more natural writers than my younger ones.
For the month of November Ethan has used mainly The Thinking Tree for history, spelling, and some social studies too. He continues to use CTC Math along with Are You a Math Genius and Bible Games.
Climbing to Good English and see how that goes with writing. I'll continue to add copywork. I have some Spelling You See copywork books that I might pull out for him later in the year.
We haven't been doing science: Let the Rocks Cry Out regularly but plan to starting in January. I am actually going to see if I can use one of The Thinking Tree journals for that and keep my science book clean for Lance to use next year but we'll see. It all depends if the journal is completed by then.
So, as of today this is what we are using with Ethan.
