Some people are intimidated by grading. Some parents are scared of high school credits. Then there are some unschool or delight-directed homeschools that really stress out about naming classes. It can be pretty easy when you use textbooks (look at the title of the textbook!) but in other situations it’s not as simple.
I just got off the phone with a mother trying to name an unusual class. If you are stuck, try Google some key words from the class you are trying to name, with the words “course description.” You’ll come up with a bunch of high school and college class course descriptions that will be similar. Look for the title that best represents your class, and Voila! In this mother’s case, we decided that “Occupational Education: Restaurant Occupations” was the best name for her class.
