Surprise Bonus # 1!
Emergency Transcript Solution
Sometimes life sneaks up on you and you realize you need your transcript NOW! Here is your checklist for making your "good enough" transcript in case of emergency.
1) Prioritize your transcript above all else
Don’t do anything until it’s done. Don’t do yard work, laundry, or even wash dishes. Order pizza for dinner until it’s done. The pizza-only diet and ordering-out expense can be VERY motivating!
2) Get a quick overview
Print these class handouts and then watch the "Making a Transcript" class
3) Print handouts for your rough draft
The HomeScholar Planning Guide and The HomeScholar Transcript Template are all you need.
4) Create your rough draft
Grab a pencil and a cup of tea with those printed forms, and then watch the "One Hour Transcript" webinar. Follow along and take notes as directed. Don’t allow anything to distract you, just work for that one hour on your transcript.
5) Type it up
The class should guide you through the transcript rough draft. All that is left is typing. You will have something that is "good enough." Open The HomeScholar Transcript Template again, and type your rough draft into the template. :
6) Edit, if time allows
If you have time, you can work on the nuances of your grades later, but this is a great start. You will feel much better when you see it in print.
7) Submit your transcript
Give the transcript to the people who need it. Print it or create a PDF to send it to them electronically.
8) Take a deep breath.... in... and out.... You're done!!
After you get it mailed off, please write me an note to let me know how this worked for you!
I hope this new feature will help! I know that some parents do thorough research and plan years ahead, and other parents are flying by the seat of their pants, creating last minute transcripts during moments of panic. I'm trying to help both kinds of parents :) I don't judge parents or evaluate your students, I'm just trying to come alongside and help as best I can.
