I have been following your blog and newsletter for the past year. I was a Member and took your Total Transcript Solution course. We also had a phone and email consult with you regarding my 9th grade daughter, Audrey, who is very interested in the arts: drama, film, dance, creative writing, music.
I followed your advice of: delight directed learning and capturing learning for credits. The result has been amazing. Audrey is so enthusiastic about the new youth film group she has started with a fellow homeschooled teen--Fountain of Youth Productions. Audrey has written a screen play, designed a website, learned about social media, studied film-making and editing, taken drama classes, written press releases, managed cast auditions, and created a promotional video. She recently initiated a crowd-funding campaign for their first movie project. All these activities, and more, involved skill-building in writing, business, computers, research, art, public speaking, and leadership. Your Total Transcript Solution helped me see how to use all this on her academic record.
I think Audrey's video will inspire other parents of creative teens incorporate their passions into their high school experience and transcript. Please feel free to share this with your blog readers. http://www.

Thank you for your support, insight, and encouragement!

You may be wondering how anyone can take mommy grades seriously. I know you are worried, but your home-made grades really do matter when homeschooling high school!
Yes, you are biased in grades , as all teachers are biased based on how much they like or don't like each individual student.
