Additional 11th Grade Subjects
A Sonlight All-Subjects Package comes with everything that you need for a complete school year. However, if you choose to mix-and-match your courses, you may want to add additional subjects to complete your year.
At the high school levels, we have designed the lesson plans, our Instructor's Guides, to move you into more of a supportive role. The notes in the Instructor's Guides (IGs) are written to the students, and each high school program includes both a Parent Guide and a Student Guide.
The Student Guide contains discussion and thought questions. Some questions cover basic comprehension, and some are closer to college-level analysis. The Parent Guide contains all the same information, along with answers.
So, while you still receive the book-by-book, and subject-by-subject schedule and notes, the tool matches your family's needs for the high school season.
Your student will be able to work independently for much of the time and you are able to choose when and how you would like to work with them.
IGs are included with your History / Bible and Literature / Language Arts or All-Subjects Packages. Use them for record-keeping, a daily schedule, notes, or any combination of the three. At the high school level, your Science program comes with a Sonlight Schedule Plus which provides a daily schedule and introduces your student to notetaking and recording their scientific findings.
Literature / Language Arts
For your 11th grade year, you will have Literature and Language Arts combined. As your students read the literature, they will spend some time on comprehension questions, as well as to continue looking in-depth at literary analysis and deeper thought questions: What effect did this have? Where these good actions?
Your student will continue to learn terms like analogy and conflict, think through ethical questions, and build their cultural literacy. Their writing assignments mostly come from their reading.

Sonlight includes Math-U-See's PreCalculus in our 11th Grade All-Subjects Package.
PreCalculus covers topics such as trigonometry, identities, polar equations, logarithms, sequences, limits and other topics to prepare for calculus.
Your student will learn about subjects like understanding and working with trigonometric ratios, their reciprocals, and their inverses; how to work with trigonometric expressions and identities; what it means to understand and work with polar coordinates and radian measure; and graphing and analyzing trigonometric functions among other things.
They will learn how to understand functions, limits, domain, and range; work with arithmetic and geometric series and sequences; and how to understand and apply the laws of sines and cosines.
Math-U-See is included in Sonlight's All-Subjects Packages, but you can customize as desired.
Sonlight offers Berean Chemistry, with the addition of the Sonlight-exclusive Schedule Plus (which provides the familiarity of Sonlight's IG for your studies).
This Discovering Design with Chemistry course addresses the theoretical and mathematical basis of chemistry and follows a sequence of learning similar to the biology. Several fascinating experiments boost learning dramatically as they demonstrate universal formulas and concepts such as mass, density, volume, and more. Several projects include solving for unknown ratios, and Discovering Design with Chemistry explains ratios and their associated calculations.
If your students complete the experiments that go with the course, they will have a true, upper-level high school science experience, with lab.
