High School Electives and Trades -- share resources
 
Please share any resources for high school electives. I'll update this OP as people post. Feel free to leave a personal review, ask questions, etc. Even if you see a program already listed, feel free to add your own personal review in the thread.

This listing is not an endorsement by GCM.

Psychology textbooks by David G. Meyers. These are not homeschool textbooks, unfortunately, but I have read several reviews that stated he writes textbooks that are truly engaging and enjoyable while still covering immense ground. He is a Christian (works at Hope College) but his textbooks are secular. http://www.davidmyers.org/Brix?pageID=5

Introductory Horticulture by Shry and Reiley.

Christian Light Publications has many books for a wide variety of electives-- automotive, technical drawing, bookkeeping, etc. While browsing, I noticed that they are often selling used, outdated versions for the same price as I would pay for a new, current version elsewhere. So this site might be a good place to get ideas but definitely shop around before purchasing. https://www.clp.org/store/by_grade/17

Re: High School Electives and Trades -- share resources
 
One thing that I have done/am doing for my kids for electives is to make a class specific to their interests. So for example, my son is pursuing a degree in architecture so while in high school, I found a textbook on architectural history and made an elective class on it. Dd wants to pursue ballet so I think I will do the same for her and do a class on the history of ballet.



Artistic Pursuits is a great art elective.
