What does homeschooling look like?
I read aloud to my children for 1/2 hour per day, 4 days a week, until they started community college at 16 and 18. They read independently about 1 hour per day. I used Sonlight curriculum, mostly, and that helped me with my book choices. In high school, I chose the longest/most difficult books to read aloud.
I loved hearing what your days looked like in homeschooling high school, Lee! It helps to hear how others do it. I'm planning on reading aloud (to my 9th and 11th grader, for lit this year) Pride & Prejudice, Gullivers Travels, A Tale of 2 Cities, Mere Christianity,& One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich or The Cost of Discipleship. Any thoughts on these? How long did you read usually and how did you decide which books to read aloud? Thanks a million
Don't you wish there was a book called "Getting Your Teen to Sleep at Night" or perhaps "7 Highly Effective Sleep Habits of Healthy Teens"? There just HAS to be
What are colleges are really looking for? Students who really want to attend a particular college need to be able to convince the school that they will stay for all four years at that
