For secular homeschoolers who want a fun, decolonized, rigorous way to homeschool high school and middle school, home/school/life’s Deep Thought is the progressive high school curriculum that does the academic heavy lifting so that you can enjoy the fun stuff. Unlike other high school curriculum, home/school/life’s Deep Thought curriculum teaches students how to learn, not just what to learn and makes big academics surprisingly fun for the whole family.

Elatsoe — nicknamed Ellie — is a young Lipan Apache woman who inherited her family’s ability to raise the ghosts of dead animals. When her much-loved cousin is murdered, Ellie is determined to find out the truth about his death. Elatsoe is on our middle grades reading list because it’s a compelling mystery with a supernatural element and a deep connection to Lipan Apache culture and traditions. (The author is a member of the Lipan Apache nation.) One of our priorities for middle school humanities is amplifying historically marginalized voices: One way to do this is by reading books like Elatsoe that reflect the deep roots and history of Native nations but that also clearly show them existing and thriving in the present day. We read this (along with The Birchbark House, Summer of the Mariposas, and Cemetery Boys) as part of a semester focused on Native nations, but it also works well as a stand-alone novel.
