Homeschool Transcripts - Where Does Shakespeare Fit?

Homeschool Transcripts - Where Does Shakespeare Fit?
I have often said that the easy part about writing the transcripts is the typing.  The hard part is knowing what to type!  That's why I became so frustrated with transcript software, and why in my business I focus more on "WHAT" to type. My daughter is studying Shakespeare and I'm wondering what  "subject" will that fall under. Might you know? Is drama, theatre,  or ???? ~Tisha in California Hi Tisha, Put it where you need...

Fine Arts for the "Not So Gifted"

Fine Arts for the "Not So Gifted"
Wow.  I guess it worked.  Fine Arts was my "great failing" in homeschool high school.  I tried to expose my kids to some Fine Arts during high school but, honestly, it was a pretty pathetic effort.   Fast forward two years.  According to facebook, here is what my son did this weekend at college: Alex loved "The Marriage of Figaro" yesterday, went to the Seattle Art Museum today, and is going to "Rhapsody in Blue" at the...

More School in Less Time!

More School in Less Time!
Audrey asks: How do you balance what you feel they need to know and do with what they feel they want to know and do? There are not enough hours in the day! This question is actually TWO questions! Q1: How can you get more hours in your day? To some extent, homeschoolers will ALWAYS feel like there aren't enough hours in the day!  It's part of parenting, and even more a part of homeschooling.  There...

A Credit or Not A Credit? That is the Question.

A Credit or Not A Credit? That is the Question.
Deciding how much theater makes up a high school credit can be tricky. The general concept for all courses is 5 hours a week for a full year of school, so you can calculate whether that's enough for a credit or for a half credit. There is no real "absolute" right and wrong answer. I really like right-and-wrong math questions, so I never felt really comfortable guessing on credit value. I always did the "5 hours...

Left brain vs. Right brain: It's a no-brainer

It's kind of twisted, really. I just love science! I am a nurse, so I have a big science and math background. But I just love it! When we did microscope work, I would find myself going in to look at the microscope by myself! I'm just curious... you folks who don't like science, do you like art? Because I hate it! It is so messy, it would get my house so many crazy colors. My...

Composer of the Week

One year I purchased a Costco 10-CD pack of great composers. Neat, because each CD was a different composer. My idea was to have a "composer of the week." We would just play a CD during lunch and maybe during math. I found portaits of the great composers on the web, that I would print. We read about them, sometimes online and sometimes from library books. Another idea for music appreciation is "How to Listen to...

Homeschool Art Without the Mess!

>>>Did you plan the art studies or let them do it as they wanted? I debate a lot about whether its worth setting aside the time for art study.<<< Art is really, REALLY my weak area, so I actually set aside time for art study, otherwise we would never do it! We never had a problem getting math or science done, just art, LOL! I scheduled it for 2-3 times a week, 1-1/2 or 2 hours...
