Now for how much time, I am letting him decide when to do each subject as he will be the only one I am home schooling this year, and he does most of his work independently.
But I am setting how much time he must spend on a subject each week. So he could do Math all one day, then science or a little each day.
Math – 1 hr per day – 5 hrs a week
Science- 1hr per day – 5 hrs a week
Writing – 30 mins a day – 2.5 hrs a week or when weekly writing is done.
Reading – 1hr per day – 5 hrs
Art History- 30 mins 3x a week – 1.5 hrs a week
Government- 30 mins 3x a week – 1.5 hrs a week
History- 1 hr per day – 5 hrs a week
Latin –45 mins a day – 3.75 hrs a week
Logic – 45 mins a day – 3.75 hrs a week
Typing -15 mins a day – 1.15 hrs a week
Civil Air Patrol studying – 30 3x a week – 1.5 hrs a week
Phys Ed – 30 min a day – 2.5 hrs a week (I don’t count it as time in the day as most of it happens at night.)
Total per day : he will run between 6 to 6.5 hours per day.
Now on some of these subjects he has a set amount of work each week, but others it as much as he can get done. Then he will get a 2-week break from that subject before starting the next book. For example Math, Science, Logic, and Latin are all as much as you can do subjects. While Writing, Reading, Art History, Government, History, and Typing are just certain amounts per week, and therefore if he finishes his work correctly early he is done for the week.
And with the as much as you can do subjects he has to score at least a 90 or he redoes it agian, this prevents rushing.
In New York State 3 hrs a week per subject is considered a full- time class, for High School.
