AmblesideOnline: Year 10

"It cannot be too often said that information is not education."

Charlotte Mason, Volume 3, p. 169

Year 10 continues high school. Students continue studying Plutarch's Lives as well as a Shakespearean play each term. They will continue with daily copywork, as well as studied dictation and grammar study. Every scheduled reading will still be narrated, either orally or in writing. Written narration should increase to more often than once a week, serving as further preparation for composition. Foreign language study continues as begun in previous years, alongside the study of Latin. A third contemporary language may be introduced this year.
