The HomeScholar - Never Harsh and Scary

The HomeScholar - Never Harsh and Scary
Sometimes I think the hardest thing about homeschooling is not how hard it is - it's how hard people SAY it is.  Honestly, if experts didn't make it sound so terrifying, people would not panic and bail, right when the homeschooling starts to pay big dividends! Read what my Facebook friend wrote to me, so you can see what I mean:Last night was my first Homeschool Workshop with our local accountability group. It was pretty laid...

Four Homeschool High School Advantages

Four Homeschool High School Advantages
A few summers ago my two sons graduated together from homeschool high school. They were both invited to compete in an all day full-tuition scholarship competition at their first choice university.  108 students competed for those ten full-tuition scholarships, Two of the winners were homeschoolers.  Both were mine. I found myself wondering, "How did that happen?" I believe we received scholarships because of four advantages: curriculum, SAT preparation, documentation, and character. These advantages are available to...

What about Work Samples?

What about Work Samples?
Work samples can be included in Comprehensive Records.  I included some writing samples within the body of my course descriptions.  I tried to choose things that were not too long, perhaps something that had won an award (published, or got an "A" grade from someone else).  And I tried to get some variety:  perhaps a short story and a piece of research. Other than a writing sample, I would just be prepared to give a sample...

Merry Course Descriptions!

Merry Course Descriptions!
It's early December and I'm already done with my Christmas cards.  To be fair, I have a LOT of Christmas cards to write!  Still, it's a  "wee bit" early to be doing that.  What are the consequences of not working on your Christmas cards early?  Nothing much.  You might conceivably not get them out on time, I suppose.  I have lots of friends that don't send cards out on time, and I'm not offended.  I even...

Paperless Homeschool?

Paperless Homeschool?
Somewhere between hoarding and a sterile paperless environment is the perfect amount of high school records. Laura wrote:"Do you have any thoughts on student work typed and saved on the computer vs handwritten work?  I thought colleges would want to see examples of student's work in his own handwriting rather than work done on computer that theoretically could have been done by anyone.  I want to move my kids to a paperless (or almost paperless) school. ...
