Freebie Friday – Feb 19, 2010 – Freebies for High School

February 26, 2010 at 7:18 am (Uncategorized)

Welcome to Freebie Friday!

I frequently am asked about freebies for the high school level. Now that I have a highschooler I am realizing how handy it can be to have some free online resources bookmarked.  This week I am sharing resources for highschooler.  Although if you are not ready for high school freebies be sure to keep reading anyway.  The last freebie is a really cool new No-Cost Curriculum that is being developed for preschool through 8th grade. (Preschool through second grade is currently online.)

This first freebie is an amazing resource for Literature Units.  Titles are listed alphabetically and each one has a free printable pdf to use with your student.  My sophomore son is currently using the one on The Canterbury Tales.

Ambleside Online is completely free and most of the books in the reading schedule can be downloaded and read for free or even printed.

Free World U a free flash card curriculum for K-12.

If you are looking for a way to teach your student computer programing check out Alice! This is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web.
