Lydia's Grade Eight: Week 34

Three weeks of "classes" to go, then exams. Who'd have thought.

We are a bit off schedule, but Lydia has been working hard this week to catch up on some of the readings. So these are some of the places we're supposed to be this week:

Finish Book 2 of Mere Christianity. (That's as far as I assigned for this year.) Continue The Holy War.

Continue our study (together) of Ecclesiastes

Up to James II in The New World.

Continue King Lear. Continue Plutarch's "Life of Timoleon."

Read a few more poems by John Donne.

Read the second-last chapter in Journey to the Source of the Nile.

Finish reading about earthquakes (together) in Why Geology Matters. Read "Factors That Affect Earth's Weather" in Physical Science, and some of Eric Sloane's Weather Book.

Do some Latin (we've been skipping).
