Every great cooking project requires great ingredients. And homeschool records are the same way. You want to start with a great ingredient list!
You know how a Thanksgiving dinner usually includes a turkey, and Easter may always mean lamb? Well there are common ingredients in homeschool records too.
There are 5 major ingredients for comprehensive homeschool records.
1. Official Transcript
2. Course Descriptions
3. Reading List
4. Activities and Awards List
5. Work Samples
Together, all of these things are GREAT outside documentation that prove you completed your calling of educating your child.
Lee - I took this advice (and used your book extensively) when I wrote up my daughter's portfolio last year. Not only did she get in to her first choice college, she received the largest scholarship they offer. We COULD NOT have done it without your wisdom. If I may brag a bit, the admissions counselor said they had never seen a better, more complete homeschool transcript package. And it's all down to you, and 27 pages of my own creation (wink). THANK YOU!
Plus, of course, my daughter's hard work, which was, of course, most important of all. Thanks to you though, for showing me how to present it correctly. I an ever grateful... and I'll have another in 4 years....
Thank you for the kind words! Lee loves helping other homeschool families get BIG money for college!
Way to go Penny, and daughter!
