There are certain words I hate.  They don't seem to be important for homeschooling.  Although I know it can be useful for some people, many of these words have their roots in public schools. rubricliterary analysisumbrella organizationaccountabilitybenchmarkcredentialinclusivenorm or normativesocializationalternative educationaccreditationparent-partnershipcertifiedapprovedIn fact, to me some words just scream "Certified teacher!  Lookout!"  Some things are useful - even important - with public school children or in a brick and mortar school.  That doesn't mean they are words that...

Math at the High School Level

At the high school level, sometimes it can see like math takes FOREVER!  It can simply take a LONG time to complete math when you are working at a high school level.  Kids get slower after they have worked for an hour or more, so it makes sense to break it up into two pieces.  Some kids need more practice and some need less.  Each child only NEEDS to do the number of problems necessary in...
