Co-Op Classes on a Transcript

Co-Op Classes on a Transcript
There are lots of ways to put a co-op class on the transcript. Some parents want to highlight that the class was taken in the co-op.  Other parents don't want the information necessarily to be included, they just want to know how to get it  on there the right way.  So let me describe the two ways to do that. Option 1 You can emphasize the class was taken at a co-op.  That is particularly helpful...

THANK YOU from Canada

THANK YOU from Canada
I love our neighbors to the north - and not just because I live in Seattle and can almost see Canada from my house.  And not just because my daughter-in-law is Canadian and calls her mother "Queen Mum."  I love Canadian homeschoolers because they are just like ALL homeschoolers!  They are parents trying hard to provide the best possible education for the children, for college and for life.   Three of my Canadian friends have assured me...

Test Prep on a High School Transcript

Test Prep on a High School Transcript
SAT preparation is a good idea, but you don't want to announce "WE STUDY FOR THE TEST" in big bold letters, so I don't recommend the title "SAT Preparation" for a course title.  Instead, I prefer calling it something else.

Homeschool Record Keeping Success!

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...
