Year 10 Homeschool Curriculum Summary

Stage 5 NSW Syllabus

The Year 10 Homeschool Curriculum offers a course that will see your teenager to a strong completion of their high school studies. It caters to a range of students, whether they are looking to continue further studies, enrol in university, study at Tafe or head into the workforce.

Parent Involvement

By this stage, most students are working very independently, which is supported by the delivery of My Homeschool courses via the Moodle platform. Parents can expect to be more of a guide, checking written work, helping them to get and stay organised, and participating in discussions too. There are also read alouds and Enrichment subjects to enjoy together as a whole family.

English

Our exclusive Skills in English resources on Rhetoric and Opinion (Semester 1) and Expression and Voice (Semester 2) teach both text analysis and writing skills while showcasing excellent examples of written work. Your teen is taught how to become a skilled and confident essay writer and how to apply these skills across all subjects.

Students also study Shakespeare, novels, poetry, drama each semester and the course has several works to read and love, including historical fiction.

Maths

Here at My Homeschool we appreciate that families like to select the maths program that best suits their teenager. So, rather than offering a “one size fits all” (that doesn’t actually fit!) we provide a thoughtful shortlist of the best Maths programs for homeschoolers at this stage of their studies. You can select which one you wish to use.

We also include discounts to some Maths programs to help with the costs involved.

Science

During Semester 1 in Year 10 the focus in Science is on Chemistry.

Semester 2 contains contributions in modern Science and recent discoveries around microbiology, biodiversity, traditional Land Management practices, and much more. Students will read from different science writers and consider how science helps solve complex situations.

Our Science Hub offers a range of living books, resources and hands-on explorations that don’t need expensive equipment and Living Science Books are included.

Modern History

Continuing the chronological study of history since Year 7, students cover Global Modern History in Year 10. Each semester students complete two In-Depth Modern History Studies, including focusing on World War II (Semester 1) and the rise of Asia (Semester 2). Writing activities, reading captivating Living Books, and preparing Book of Centuries records are included in each lesson.

Geography

Featuring Living Books, mapping, case studies, and data analysis that will engage your teen will complete both social Geography, examining the complexities of global wellbeing (Semester 1) and use a modern approach to physical Geography (Semester 2).

Civics & Citizenship and Economics

No more struggling to teach students about the complexities of diverse government systems!

In Semester 1 students learn about issues of democracy, civil rights, Indigenous rights, racism and autocratic rule. They explore how the UN works as they discover their role as global citizens, including peacekeeping efforts, diplomacy, the International Court of Justice, and diplomacy. They also learn key economic principles.

Electives

We provide extensive Elective Extension Subject Guides. These allow you to curate a tailor-made program suited to your teen so they can devote time to the subjects that really interest them. We show you how to do this in a simple and easy way.

And More…

Our Year 10 course includes extensive Enrichment Activities carefully designed for high schoolers. We also don’t forget the importance of your child’s physical and mental health, including a resource specifically focusing on building their personal development (Semester 2).

Exams

To help with assessment and review, end of term exams are provided. There are plenty of support materials for parents who wish to use these.

There is a lot on offer for Year 10. It has the rigor you can expect from studying at this level but keeps the joy in your homeschool.

We Use A Blended Learning Approach

At My Homeschool most of your lessons will be completed offline (reading from a book, doing a field trip, or writing in your notebooks) and some will be online learning (watching videos, reading online etc.).

All our resources are digital and are located on Moodle, a renowned online learning platform used by many schools and universities. Using this format means we give you exceptional functionality which enables you to record your progress, and access your lessons from various digital devices and locations.  This format also enables us to keep our resources fresh and dynamic.

A laptop, tablet, or desktop computer is needed to use our courses. Access to a printer is also necessary. PDFs can be downloaded and printed for offline reading but other resources can only be viewed from our learning platform.

The majority of our classes require reading from a real book or paper-based resource. Writing exercises involve pencils and paper and many lessons are oral or conversation based.

Video lessons require access to the My Homeschool learning portal.

The Moodle App can be downloaded onto your smartphone for on the go lessons and checking progress but is not recommended as the main digital device for reading and viewing lessons.

A Co-ordinated Curriculum

My Homeschool offers parents the confidence that their child is gaining knowledge, learning content, and developing skills in an age-appropriate way. This is achieved by presenting courses that follow a rich curriculum that ensures your child builds on their knowledge year after year.

From Foundation to Year 10 your child will have the benefit of a streamlined curriculum without overlaps and unnecessary busywork.

Our program development is based on the education philosophy of Charlotte Mason and the Australian Curriculum (which includes the NSW Syllabus & WA Curriculum). 

Registration and Reporting

At My Homeschool, we do not do your registration plans for you. Registration applications are meant to be specific for each individual child and so parents are the best person to do this. However, we make your registration (or an exemption) so much easier because we provide so much support for this process.  All our courses includes:

  • An Education Plan offered in a format that you can individualise for your child;
  • A Scope and Sequence showing how My Homeschool reflects the Australian Curriculum and NSW Syllabus;
  • End of Term Report templates;
  • A printable week-by-week planner with plenty of space to make notes specific to your child (no need to purchase a separate planner!); and
  • An online Weekly Planner, complete with links to all the online resources required.

We also provide you with access to our State Rego and Planning Course which guides you through your homeschool application (and some international options!) when using our courses.

We give you a shortcut to help you get straight into giving your child a delightful and robust education without spending days and days researching and tweaking unsuitable content.

Community Support
When you buy a course through My Homeschool you are joining a community that supports and mentors parents interested in educating their children academically and spiritually. All My Homeschool families have access to our vibrant Community Forum. This is the place where parents connect and share what is happening in their homeschool.  Expert homeschoolers are always there to share top tips and answer any questions you may have.

Teaching Support

We also offer regular teaching support opportunities and have an extensive library of homeschooling resources, including resources on the specific registration and reporting requirements of a number of states, territories and countries. Whether you are just starting out or have homeschooled for years, there is something to teach and inspire you.

Curated Content
We aim to give you confidence that you can educate your children with a worldview that honours Judeo-Christian principles whilst providing strong academic outcomes. Our resources are not predominantly Christian because we look for outstanding resources and often a secular resource is the best option. We have a number of families who use our curriculum who are secular or from other faiths and we do not include devotional material or specific religious instruction in our curriculum.

Loving Learning Again

He’s just not doing well. He’s not interested in what he’s learning, and his grades are going down. I’m worried he might start getting into trouble.” This was Sally’s comment to me as we spoke about her teenage son. He was due to start Year 10 in a couple of months and Sally was no longer sure that school was a good fit for him. But she was hesitant to try homeschooling. She thought it was better suited for younger grades and was worried that she wasn’t up to it either. After all, she wasn’t a teacher.

Deciding it was a little of ‘now or never’, Sally jumped into homeschooling.

Some days weren’t easy, but their efforts paid off. Her son became interested in learning again. He was reading books. He was writing narrations and discussing with her what he’d been learning.

She discovered that he loved maths (and was really good at it) thanks to using a program that actually worked for him. Sally also found that he was a more confident writer. As for getting into trouble, instead of that, he’d made some great friendships.

“Homeschooling saved us!” was her comment later on. Her son was looking to enrol in an Open Universities online course and continue with his maths.

Like Sally, you can feel confident that homeschooling is a great option for Year 10. Here at My Homeschool we’ve designed a course that engages teenagers.

We know what the teen years are like. We appreciate the challenges and opportunities of supporting our kids during this time.

So, our Year 10 course encourages students to be independent learners in the comfort of your own home. They read some excellent books. They engage in important issues to inform and prepare them. They are taught by a range of authors and writers across many different topics.

They also have opportunities to spend time on their own particular interests. We have designed a generous Year 10 course and help you to support your child further through elective studies too.

Most parents comment that they are glad to have given their teen the education they wished they’d had themselves.

My Homeschool graduates are teens who are thriving. They are pursuing their interests and are proud of what they are capable of achieving.

Story by Jo Lloyd  (Course Creator Year 10 My Homeschool)

Greetings Jo, Michelle and Amanda,

Just wanted to share the excitement of our first Year 10 My Homeschool graduate ! Thank you Jo for the wonderful 10A & 10B course you have created and for your guidance. Thank you Michelle and Amanda for all your hard work and support too. We feel deeply grateful to you all.

This year our children also completed Year 3, Year 6 & Year 9, many thanks for these courses too.

As a Mum who nervously stepped out in faith to homeschool 11 years ago, with a dream but honestly no idea as to how to go about it, it’s incredible to think that our son has just graduated from Year 10. 

I feel the course has prepared my son well for future study and work and to navigate the complex modern world in which we live. Most importantly the course reaches their hearts and enables them to understand how blessed they are. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you! to the team at my homeschool! This is the Year 10 homeschool curriculum Australia has needed and has been waiting for!

Homeschool Reviews, My Homeschool Curriculum Year 10

While I'm responding I just wanted to take a moment to say that we are absolutely loving the My Homeschool curriculum.  My children and I feel like we have breathed a breath of fresh air after a turbulent first and second term this year with a distance education school.  We had signed up with them in an effort to reduce the amount of time I spend planning and reporting for HEU [Queensland government registration unit].

In fact the only reason we hadn't signed up with My Homeschool initially is because anytime HEU was mentioned my heart rate would increase and I'd want to run!

We were, and are, a Charlotte Mason style family and in hindsight I should have realised that the distance education route was going to be a disaster.  Let's just say, in term 1 and 2, no-one saved any time, there were lots of frustrated tears from children and mother, and there was so much busy work to do and no time for a proper education!

Enter My Homeschool, oh how we loved term 3, our first term with you.  My children were once more excited about 'school', I was once more loving learning alongside them.  There was time to explore some of the creative tangents the children go off on when were learning new things, you know the sort, "if that happened, I wonder what happened when...", or the classic "why?".

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work you do, your curriculum has provided a platform (and the reporting documents) that satisfies the HEU while still leaving us loads of flexibility and room to explore our amazing world and the people who have lived here and still live here.

You have saved me time in planning and reporting and the word HEU no longer makes me want to run.  I have been so thrilled I tell all my homeschooling friends about your amazing program and one of my friends signed her family up with My Homeschool (PS they're loving the curriculum too).

Many blessings to you and your team, continue the good work you are doing.  The hours are most likely long and some days feel fruitless, but you are without a doubt a blessing to many families.
