According to Dan from Demi-Dec, next years topic is:

The Civil War
Science: Infectious Diseases
with 19th Century Art

That's about all we know for now, but it looks awesome!

Not fair! I have an unhealthy obsession with the Civil War, but I'm graduating T_T

Actually, we know a bit more than that. Here's what we've got:
  • Super Quiz - History of the Civil War.
  • Science - Infectious diseases, specifically the transmission, treatment, and prevention of.
  • Language and Literature - As usual, a novel with short works and critical reading. The novel is Stephen Crane's Red Badge of Courage.
  • Art - 19th century American artworks.
  • Music - The music of the Civil War.
  • Economics - The usual gig, but with a section on slavery and the economics behind it.
  • Math - As usual. But there is one VERY significant change: we will be allowed to use Graphing Calculators next year!!!
Overall, a very solid and interesting curriculum. I am happy about it!

Should I make a new post for the specific layout of the curriculum next year?

....or will be a test of how well you know your calculator (and not of how fast you are at math). But I am a little prejudiced because I don't know my graphing calculator as well as most other people do theirs.

I'm in the same boat, so I imagine there are plenty of others who feel the same way (as in: don't know their calculators well). I'm graduating this year, though, so it won't affect me nearly as much... but still gotta look out for the young'ns.

I am graduating too, but I will go back to teach some of the stuff, as is our schools tradition. You go back and teach whatever you were best at.
