Howdy. Here's what we are doing and I would be interested in knowing what you are doing, too. As unschoolers, I let my daughter have time to work on her passions with only a couple of "requirements" as you will see. For convenience, we call her a 10th grader.

This is what she is doing now on more or less weekly basis, plus worship team and other church activities and other social activities, plus some archery and power walking.

Japanese - both of us are learning this. She wants to teach me this too. Required learning for Mom.
Spanish - verbal mostly, because we live in CA and it is convenient
Fallacy Detectives - we both read and we discuss each chapter of this fun book. She does some copybooking.
Are you a Liberal? Conservative? - we both read adn discuss each letter he writes to his nephew.
Painless Geometry - for fun (?is she MY kid?). There's some
internet art stuff related to this.
A bunch of learning.org videos on internet:
Right now: The Brain, Psychology, Abnormal Psychology,
Art of Western World, history of western world (and
other art-related shows)
Fanfiction.net - reading/creative writing of manga mostly
Vampire and other fantasy oriented books for fun and how-to's
Psychology for Dummies
Writers, Inc.
Bible - she wants to read the entire thing and we discuss.
Learning to drive - practice with Mom in parking lots. Her goal is to ake the written test this next year, so she .

She's recently become a vegetarian and interested in veganism, because of the way farm animals are treated as well as health issues.

She's interested in health careers and also in writing, as well as singing. She is also interested (right now) in becoming a pastor. So she is always exploring in these fields on the internet or library.

I insist on one chapter per week of BJU Consumer Mathematics, although no homework, because of the valuable financial knowledge therein, which I discuss with her and try to point out practical examples.

I also insist on Mavis Beacon typing for 15 minutes per day, with the goal of keyboarding 45 wpm by the end of this year. She enjoys this self-competition.

I also want her to read or watch videos of "college bound books", a list I got from the Interne (many available), which she picks from and likes very much too.

Let me know your high schooler's passions and how it is going. Thanks.
