Homeschool High School Transcripts and Activity Lists: An Analogy

Here's an analogy you may enjoy:

Transcript is to course description as transcript is to activity list.

On the bottom of the transcript is a place for a VERY abbreviated activity list.  Keep a separate page to list all the details about those activities.  You know the difference between a transcript and course description... same difference between a transcript and an activity list.  The transcript provides just the name, credit value, and grade for each class.  The details are in the course description.  Similarly, the transcript provides the name, year in school, and honor from each activity, but the activity list gives details.  The activity list might give details like:  4 months, 120 hours, May until October of 2010, volunteer position, mentioned in the newspaper, or became Vice Chair of the organization.

You can see a samples of these records on my free Record Keeping Samples Page.
