Homeschool Records - How to Determine Homeschool Credits

This question comes from Jurene in Spokane, who purchased a transcript last year, and now is planning to create a music appreciation course with the Symphony:

Homeschool Transcript - Strap on Your Auxiliary Brain!

Homeschool Transcript - Strap on Your Auxiliary Brain!


My son Kevin is a chess genius. When he was in high school, he was ranked second in state even though he never had a chess coach like the other kids.

We used to tease my husband that he was "strapping on his auxiliary brain" when he played with the chess computer in his hand.

July and August Contest winners
Winner of "A Moment of Peace"
WATCH Convention
Lorrie Flem, Publisher
Teach Magazine

At conventions I usually have a gaggle of teenage girls standing around waiting for the drawing. I carefully mixed up the names, and randomly chose one of the girls to draw the winner. I was careful to make sure that the girl turned her back and covered her eyes when she drew. When the girl looked at the winner's name, she screamed, "It's my Mom! Lorrie Flem is my Mom!" She was SO excited! What a thrill for her to choose her own mother as the winner! \u003cbr\>\u003c/span\>\u003c/p\>\n\n\u003cdiv style\u003d\"text-align:center;color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-weight:bold\"\>Winner of the July \u003cbr\>Newsletter Contest\u003c/span\> \u003c/span\>\u003c/div\>\u003cdiv style\u003d\"text-align:center;color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>Renée in \u003c/span\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>Garmisch\u003c/span\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>, \u003c/span\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>Germany\u003c/span\>\u003c/div\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt;color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>"I've been so impressed\nwith the info in the newsletter, that it was certainly something I thought\nothers would benefit from as well," said Renée.\u003cbr\>\u003cbr\>\u003c/span\>\u003cdiv style\u003d\"text-align:center;color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-weight:bold\"\>Winner of the August \u003cbr\>\nNewsletter Contest\u003c/span\> \u003c/span\>\u003c/div\>\u003cdiv style\u003d\"text-align:center;color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>Karen Davis in North Carolina\u003c/span\>\u003c/div\>\u003cbr\>\u003cdiv style\u003d\"text-align:center;color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-weight:bold\"\>Your Turn to Win! \u003c/span\>\u003c/span\>\u003c/div\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:12pt;color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>Win "A Moment of Peace" for yourself!\u003cspan\> \u003c/span\>You will have the opportunity to win "A\nMoment of Peace" at the Pacific Northwest Homeschool College Fair October 27, 2007 at CascadiaCommunity\n College.\u003c/span\>\u003cbr\>\n\t\t\t\u003c/font\>\u003c/td\>\n\t\t\u003c/tr\>\n\t\t\u003c/table\>\u003ca name\u003d\"114d120ea97d23d3_LETTER.BLOCK7\"\>\u003ctable style\u003d\"margin-bottom:6px\" border\u003d\"0\" width\u003d\"100%\" cellpadding\u003d\"5\" cellspacing\u003d\"0\"\>\n\t\t\u003ctr\>\n\t\t\t\u003ctd style\u003d\"background-color:#BEE796;padding:2px 2px 2px 6px;color:#cef9fe;font-family:Arial Narrow,Arial MT Condensed Light,sans-serif;font-size:14pt\" height\u003d\"20\" bgcolor\u003d\"#BEE796\" width\u003d\"100%\" rowspan\u003d\"1\" colspan\u003d\"1\"\>\u003cfont color\u003d\"#cef9fe\" size\u003d\"4\" face\u003d\"Arial Narrow,Arial MT Condensed Light,sans-serif\" style\u003d\"color:#cef9fe;font-family:Arial Narrow,Arial MT Condensed Light,sans-serif;font-size:14pt\"\>\u003cb\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"color:rgb(0, 0, 0)\"\>September Calendar Reminders\u003c/span\>\u003cbr\>\u003c/b\>\u003c/font\>\u003c/td\>\n\t\t",1] ); //-->

Tips for Homeschooling Teens

Tips for Homeschooling Teens

Children learn all the time, even when we aren't looking - and even over summer! You might want to "pre-test" your children in some subject areas before you start school next year. For example, Spelling Power offers a placement test for their program, and you can check their spelling level at the beginning of each year, to make sure they are learning something new. In most math books, the first chapter or two is review. You can see if your student really NEEDS the review. You can give the chapter one test on the first day of school, and if your child scores well, just skip chapter one, and move on to the chapter two test. Keep in mind that our goal isn't to "teach" something. Our goal is that our children learn something new - something they don't already know.

High School Testing - Are CLEP Exams Graded?


Lee,

I read with interest your article on CLEP exams and have a question. How does taking the exams affect your GPA in college? I understand that in some instances you can get college credit for passing the exams, but are you assigned a grade that factors into your GPA?
Thank you, Maureen

National Geographic Bee!

Read about this homeschooler who won the National Geographic Geography Bee! This young woman demonstrates a passion and specialization that colleges love. Don't discourage your children from pursuing their interests! Encourage them! Colleges would rather have students display unusual interests than see a "cookie cutter" student.

We had the pleasure of meeting Caitlin recently at a homeschool event. She is a charming, brilliant, witty and vivacious young lady.
