Unit studies for high school?

I am doing some research for next school year and am considering unit studies over an AIO curriculum.

We currently use BJU but I am finding that it is geared toward the classroom setting and I want to break away from that a bit. I would prefer something that is more independent and student led.

We plan on doing Teaching Textbooks for math. I am up in the air about everything else though. TIA!

I don't see a problem with it at all. 2 of my older boys attend PS and with block scheduling they only do a certain subject for 8 weeks at a time anyway.

At one time I thought I had bookmarked a youtube video of a lady that did unit studies and kept everything in rubbermaind boxes and then just rotated through---I loved this idea and thought it would work great for high school too. I just haven't been organized enough to pull it off yet.

currclick has a lot of great unit studies as well, for a variety of ages.

Great, I will check it out. Thanks!

I hadn't thought of block scheduling. My kids' old school had the same subjects/schedule each day and went all year, with a week break every 4-6 weeks. My experience with alternative schedules is limited. I will do some more research.

Our first year has been rough, but I am looking forward to a better year next year.
