Creating A High School Course for Homeschool
One of the things I really enjoy about homeschooling high school is working with my oldest (13) to design her own classes.
Her interest in medicine and neuroscience is not something that can be found in most high school curriculum, but through homeschooling I have been able to help feed her passions.
So far I have designed courses in Genetics, Neurobiology, and Infectious Diseases. These were each 1/2 to 1 credit high school classed.
This year, she asked for a class focusing on Pediatric and Emergency medicine. We worked together and designed a course so without further ado, I give you....
From High School to Med School- An Introduction to Pediatric and Emergency Medicine.
I am still working on the actual daily plans, but I have all the resources chosen and laid out.
I have loved the Great Courses Plus as a resources for designing courses for high school and I highly recommend their lectures. She has chosen to use the courses Medical School for Everyone: Pediatrics Grand Rounds and Medical School for Everyone: Emergency Medicine.
I think both of us are really excited about this course.
The labs are purchased form Home Science Tools if anyone is looking for some great homeschool lab supplies.
