Thanks to this book, I know I can homeschool high school.
I borrowed this through Kindle Unlimited. Lee's down to earth, practical, "here let me show you how I did it" advice and suggestions helped me ditch the overwhelming stress I had considering homeschooling high school. I learned about other ways to grade and evaluate my kids besides a test, delight directed learning (letting kids explore their own interests and creating high school credit for it), how to write class descriptions, what kind of documentation I should be keeping NOW, the works. She had real examples of her own children's transcripts and course descriptions as well as 2 or 3 other families who approached high school in very different ways. The book even went into earning college credits while still at home. After reading her book, I know I can homeschool high school and do it well.
