Tips for Homeschooling Teens

Tips for Homeschooling Teens

Homeschooling Resources - What about Teaching High School Science?
Have you wondered how parents can teach a subject they don't know? How will you teach high school sciences without having a background in science? Carol asked me about physics, and was resigned to studying physics herself over summer, so that she could teach it to her student. Here is my response: Carol,You can certainly study physics over the summer if you WANT to.... But I didn't want to! We used Apologia Physics, and it was...
