Homeschool Record Keeping Success!
I met a friend in the grocery store today. Her son had just finished his first year in college. A year ago, she and I had spent an hour going over her homeschool records. We talked about the transcript and how to write course descriptions. I made suggestions and recommendations, but she did all the work - I only spent an hour with her! But it gave her what she needed to write a 16 page description of her homeschool, complete with course descriptions and grades. When we talked today, she was convinced that it was this documentation that got her son into the college of his choice - WITH great scholarships! If you are thinking about using course descriptions with your college applications, you might want to work on last year's classes now. They will be fresh in your mind. If you want suggestions, I'm available. If you want to see what mine looked like, you can purchase my book as a sample for a wide variety of classes. Homeschoolers get pretty busy during the school year. Working on course descriptions now, during the summer, can help you devote enough time to the project.
