Homeschool College - Do Community Colleges Accept CLEP Credits?

Homeschool College - Do Community Colleges Accept CLEP Credits?
I received this message about CLEP credits from a homeschooling parent: "In Florida, the state universities have a reciprocal policy with the community colleges if you complete your AA. So, we'll probably go that route and do his AA via CLEP and dual enrollment." Earning an AA through CLEP credits and dual enrollment wasn't the route we took, but it may work for you.

Can I Use MIT's Open Courseware to Homeschool College?

Can I Use MIT's Open Courseware to Homeschool College?
Has anyone homeschooled college using things such as MIT's Open Courseware, and would completing courses through this be an acceptable path? ~Stephanie on Facebook To get college credit while you homeschool ("homeschooling college") requires credits to be accredited by some organization (like CLEP) or some college (like Thomas Edison.) While MIT's Open Courseware classes are extremely cool, they aren't accredited. You would probably need to find a test to measure knowledge gained from the Open Courseware...

Homeschool College - Courting the Colleges

Homeschool College - Courting the Colleges

May I suggest that Bible may be one good area to count hours? Just estimate how many hours per...

Homeschool College - Should you use E-mail or Snail Mail to Say Thank You after a College Visit ?
>>>>A mom asked if she should send an email or snail mail thank you note after visiting a college....<<<< I think that the answer is BOTH. If you don't intend to go to the school, then sending them an email thank you note is fine. But if you DO intend to apply to the school, then I would send both an email and a snail mail thank you note. Some colleges keep a record of how...

Homeschooling Curriculum - How do I "do" Current Events?
>>>>How do I incorporate current events into our homeschool?<<<< Hi Michele, In 7th grade we were doing Apologia Biology, Sonlight 100, French, Algebra, SAT prep, and piano. For current events, I bought World Magazine, but that's because my kids are very *into* current events. I think the easiest and most fun way is just to get the newspaper daily.

Homeschooling Younger Children - Keeping your kids up on current events

Homeschooling Younger Children - Keeping your kids up on current events
My kids are 10 and 12. I get the God's World News, and have them read it and answer the questions on the TM sheet. This is also my only work on reading comprehension, as I always forget narration. That is why I like using God's World. It gives them a little practice with multiple choice quizzes. If there is a story we are following (like now we are following the convention) I will call them...
