Homeschool Speech and Debate - Outside the Box

Homeschool Speech and Debate - Outside the Box
One of the great things about homeschooling is that you can tailor your school to meet the needs and interests of your students.  To do that, you need to think outside the box a little bit.  Once you do that, all things are possible!   Even speech and debate!I have another question for you.  Are there ways outside of a school setting to get a child involved in a debate club or with public speaking, other than...

Be Thankful for Affliction!

Be Thankful for Affliction!
When my husband stubs his toe, he always says the same thing, "Thank goodness I got that over with!"  (old Calvanist joke.)  We joke about being thankful for the stubbed toe, but that's what the Bible encourages us to do in Psalms.  In Psalm 119, you hear from a person who is truly afflicted - so afflicted that he went astray.  But later in the Psalm, with the "Thank goodness I got that over with" attitude,...

Be Strong in Wisdom AND the Spirit

Be Strong in Wisdom AND the Spirit
Stephen was strong, wise, and full of the Spirit.  We can learn a lot from the first martyr.  Here is what the Bible says:"These men began to argue with Stephen, but they could not stand up against his wisdom or the Spirit by whom he spoke." Acts 6:9-10Standing up against society is difficult.  Stephen's witness is so strong because he stood up against society using both wisdom and the Holy Spirit - not just one or...

Literature Appreciation for a Reluctant Reader

Literature Appreciation for a Reluctant Reader
How do you get your child to appreciate literature? If you decide to do without a formal literature analysis, then what can you do to teach literature appreciation - expecially in a reluctant reader?I am wondering what you would recommend her to do for her literature.  Should I just let her read what ever she wants or should I have her pick from a list of options.  How much reading should I be requiring?Sandy in UtahDear...

Giving High School Credit Where Credit is Due

Giving High School Credit Where Credit is Due
Can online courses go on a transcript?  How do you give credit for courses taken online?  When homeschoolers get together and talk, sometimes a phrase will stick with you, making you wonder and fret.  Lisa was told that online classes won't be recognized for high school credit, and wondered what that meant.Hi Lee – quick question. During a weekend away with some fellow Homeschool students, one of them commented, “online classes don’t count for high school...
