I have been wondering something as I am attempting to collect samples for the end of the year. Did you ensure that your samples you kept for transcripts were marked? As in edits, grades, etc? I have a habit of marking on work but wonder if I should keep clean copies of everything? Did you send in the original? Also, in your "binder" world, did you keep most everything they produced? If not, how did you find the courage to pitch anything? Guess I'm a tubby at heart...
If you haven't kept work samples all along in high school, then it's fine to provide them just from senior year. If you are applying to college early in the fall, then you can always create any necessary work samples that may be required ("Honey, you need to do a lab report this week, because the college needs one.") If you have kept work samples from every year of high school, then use the BEST work sample you can provide. In other words, give them the scholarship-winning essay, not the one that has red corrections all over it, and give them their best math test from their best math year, not the most recent test when they were distracted by other things.
Hey Lizzie! Thanks for being my friend on Facebook today!
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!
