Checklist and Links for High School Graduation (This article was last updated on 1/11/13. For continued updates, please sign up for my free monthly newsletter.) I've been compiling a list of links to free resources on the web that I use myself or that have been recommended. As I'm sure you all know, buying curriculum, especially at the high school level, can amount to hundreds of dollars per course. I try to mix and match as much as possible, carefully picking and choosing what I buy, and using free material if I can find it. Fortunately, "free" does not mean you have to compromise on quality. I thought I would share what I have to try to cut down on the time we all spend searching. First, some links to sites that offer free material in a wide array of core and elective subjects. For a list of 150 free textbooks, click here. The Wake County Public School System has a series of online video lessons called the "Success Series," which provides a review of most of the core subjects and foreign language.

In your first term of study, you'll be working with Dr L-J on Shakespeare. I would like you to complete a short piece of written work before you arrive, as a way of focusing your reading. You need to have a copy of David Bevington’s Arden edition of Troilus and Cressida (which is the set text for your Faculty Classes in the Easter Term, 2009) and to read it with considerable care, including the notes, sources, appendices, &c, so that you're well prepared for the Faculty Shakespeare classes. There are new editions of Shakespeare appearing all the time, with the Arden 3rd series being almost complete now, and the New Oxford and New Cambridge editions also giving almost ‘complete coverage’. For these classes you will need your own copy of the following texts: Ovid, Metamorphoses (Penguin)
