    …and transcripts aren’t the only thing made easy! Janice Campbell has a gift for taking each aspect of homeschooling a high schooler and showing that the task CAN be done and can be done with a minimum of vexatious worry. This new 4th edition contains the practical and encouraging content from the previous editions along with valuable new information including an overview of what students need to learn in high school, a chapter on college alternatives, tips from a college professor on what every college freshman needs to know, an updated chapter on record keeping and transcripts for special needs students and detailed step-by-step instructions for creating transcripts using software you own or that you can download for free.

      Starting at the beginning, Mrs. Campbell talks about when to start planning as well as the flip side of that question: what to do if you haven’t been planning and high school is almost over. What to study, standardized testing, and skills and habits to cultivate in high school all receive a brief but thorough examination. With the transcript as the focal point, Mrs. Campbell covers record keeping, naming classes, grading (including how to grade ethically), and assigning credits.

      Since transcripts aren’t just for the “traditionally homeschooled” (whatever that is), you’ll find information here for preparing transcripts for unschoolers and the chronically relaxed. This isn’t just general information, either, as she gets very specific in terms of transcript (and diploma) text.

     Samples of transcripts and diplomas as well as many reproducible forms (reading and activities logs, class profile, subject worksheets, and blank transcript forms) are provided. ~ Janice/Deanne

    Finally, a file to track your students' progress through your home school. This grayish, cardstock file folder has lots of great pre-printed features to help you record your student's academic progress from 1st through 12th grade. On the front of the folder, fill in the blanks with your student's information - date and place of birth, gender, social security number, mother's and father's names, address, and phone number. There is also space to attach a photo and list where the student attended each grade, which is helpful if your student attended another school in previous years. On the inside of the front cover, there are spaces to record graduation data, extracurricular activities, and testing records. The inside of the back cover is about an inch taller than the front and allows you to write your student's name so you can see it easily even if the file is in a drawer. Then, each grade is broken down into blank charts with spaces for eight subjects and their final grades. The charts for grades 1-8 are in the inside back cover, while the charts for high school are continued on the backside. Underneath the high school charts are places to record their cumulative GPA and total credits. This file helps you easily check your students records in a glance, keeps them all in one place, and can also hold relevant papers and documents.

    Is it a planner? Or a how-to book on homeschooling high school? You’ll have to decide for yourself. For each of the four high school years there is a 44-page planner section; it includes six monthly two-page layouts, a two-page six month calendar, a journal-type semester summary, attendance record, and achievement record for each semester, plus two articles that pertain to planning that year. The layout for each month shows five columns with lined boxes for each day. There’s room to write assignments for six subjects, complete with check-off circle. A sixth column has a character challenge, a monthly summary (e.g. grades, attendance, and activities), and a brief note on future planning. Each month’s pages also include a scripture verse and miniature current and following month’s calendars. The beginning of the book has a sample month, course requirements, a course planning worksheet, transcript requirements, and a sample transcript. The end of the book provides a section on college preparation – a checklist on what to do when, blank high school transcripts, college portfolio worksheet and details, worksheets (college and scholarship considerations), and notes.

    As with other planners from Well-Planned Day, color and graphic schemes (different for each year) are inviting and strike a nice balance in appealing to both genders. Planner is 8.5” x 11” spiral-bound. Janice

    If you are preparing to homeschool a highschooler, no doubt you already realize that this is a big responsibility. If you are unsure whether you are going to continue to homeschool through high school, be assured that the same reasons you chose to homeschool in the first place are still applicable through these years. You are still able to provide your students with everything they need to be prepared for college - likely even more than their peers. The focus of this book is homeschooling through high school with the goal of college admission. Frequently homeschoolers approaching these years wonder if they will be able to give their students what they need to be accepted, and they are wary about keeping the right records, being eligible for scholarships, preparing official transcripts, and numerous other considerations that will be encountered. The author of this book, Jeanne Gowen Dennis, has (successfully!) homeschooled her daughter through high school, and she is now excelling in college. Because of the many questions Dennis has received on this subject, she decided to write a book to help prepare parents and show them exactly what they need to do to prepare their students. Not only did she draw on her experience and that of other homeschooling families, she also surveyed over 260 colleges on her own to find out what they looked for, what they required, and what strengths and weaknesses they noticed among homeschoolers enrolled in their colleges. This book begins with a chapter targeting the unsure. Dennis spells out the many advantages of homeschooling through high school, reassuring you that you are qualified to undertake this responsibility. She also lists out the disadvantages, such as not having such wide access to lab science materials, administrative tasks that you will be required to do, potential social problems (no, this does NOT have to be case at all, but she mentions it in order to help you recognize the importance of preparing your students to be in college life) and a few others. She also provides ways to combat these though, with excellent, sound advice. Next, she offers you the "Blueprint for Success", an outline of all the skills you need to build in your student - be it good character, academic, or practical. Planning and Priorities is an excellent chapter listing goals for high school education. Next she instructs in planning schedules, budget, selecting quality curriculum, and other important decisions. Chapter 5 is an extremely helpful chapter, showing by subject what is important for students to learn before going to college. A chapter for the home guidance office offers knowledge about keeping accurate records, college and career planning, alternatives for higher education, college entrance exams (SAT or ACT? What are the pros and cons of taking the GED?), and financial aid. Then is an extensive guide to finding the right college, along with a several page questionnaire to fill out regarding the college. The next chapter highlights noted strengths and potential weaknesses of homeschoolers in college, helping you to build on the strengths and alleviate the weaknesses. Chapters 9 and 10 guide you through all the information you should keep and record, how to prepare your transcript to look professional, assigning credits, writing course descriptions, assigning grades, and everything else you need to package in order to apply to colleges and look professional. There are tons of forms and charts to help you prepare your student's records clearly and correctly. Extensive appendices include a chart of college homeschool requirements (gathered from over 100 colleges across the nation), homeschool high school resources, a section for students, and a very complete list of recommended reading - one from a college English professor, one from a literature based homeschooling mom, and an additional compilation of other favorites from the author and other parents. If you are unsure of whether you want to continue homeschooling into this period, if you feel incompetent, or if you know you want to but have questions regarding preparation for college, this guide will prove extremely valuable to you. There is a lot of information here for anyone preparing students for college admission. 306 pgs. - Melissa

    You’ll find things in this homeschool planner that don’t show up in others. And they’re likely to be just what you were wanting. The expected 36 weeks of planning pages are there – M-F across the top horizontally with nine vertical unlined boxes (1 1/8” x 2 3/4”) labeled Scripture, English, History, Math, Science, three blank boxes, and Notes. Then, there’s the might-be-expected – sheets for daily attendance, field trips, chores, daily schedule, daily grade sheet. Lastly, there are a few things that will surprise you: a list to prepare “our family rules,” character development chart, instructional sections on grading and preparing a transcript, reproducible report cards, and short essays with helpful hints and anecdotes. Definitely the work of an experienced homeschool mom from a Christian perspective. Janice

    I consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable when it comes to college-prep homeschooling, but I just discovered that I only knew the proverbial "tip of the iceberg." Fortunately, I can now point you to the real expert – Jennifer Cook-DeRosa. This book is an amazing compendium of information. She covers all the topics you would expect – college credit at home, high school planning, curriculum-building, test-taking, transcripts, college admissions and costs. She covers these topics completely and thoroughly; citing a wealth of resources, in a manner that I appreciate – bullet points. But what I savored most is the overall philosophy of her approach. Homeschooling moms wear many hats during their career, but one that has been overlooked (at least until now) is that of high school guidance counselor. With this book in hand, you will have the tools you need to guide your child not only through high school but into college and onto a life path that avoids many expensive pitfalls along the way. Her general approach to educational costs might be dubbed a Dave Ramsey-esque cost/value assessment. In other words, she gives you lots of options for avoiding the ubiquitous college debt that many families just accept and many homeschooling families avoid by shunning college educations all together. Her tips for talking to children about the relative value of jobs and their attainment cost helps to put "pursuing your dream" into economical perspective and will help you realistically prepare your children for establishing and supporting a family. Don't wait until your child is in high school to read this book (although better then than never) – middle school is a good time to start the process of educating yourself (once again) and filling your mind with the possibilities. 170 pgs. pb ~ Janice

    Subtitled How to Craft Homeschool Transcripts and Course Descriptions for College Admission and Scholarships. Sometimes, the thought of creating a transcript sends us homeschoolers into near hysteria. I've heard of those who stopped homeschooling just before high school from the sheer fear of this alone. Lee Binz, of HomeScholar.com, cheers you on. With God's help you can do this! This book focuses on the "nitty gritty" of high school: the transcripts (and all that they compose), credits, course descriptions, assigning grades, GPA, etc. Emphasis is placed on accurately and effectively communicating to your transcript's intended audience: colleges (also applicable to the workplace). Binz respectfully handles such potentially challenging issues as accurately translating your personal homeschool experience to a typical institution. Easily understood, the book is practical and thorough, with plenty of diagrams, charts and black and white illustrations as support. While Binz does not specifically emphasize scholarships, the methods explained will provide a transcript which can be used in scholarship applications. Six practical appendices include a guide and templates for transcripts, examples of a comprehensive record, and an expanded transcript, as well as two different actual transcript examples. 7" x 10", 222 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Finding and paying for a college are two big challenges. And finding the perfect fit for your students often involves, to a certain extent, a level of marketing your student to the college of his/her choice. This book will help you meet those challenges. Sections include Preparing for College; Finding a College; Applying to College; Getting Scholarships; Facing Reality (struggling learners, gap years and other college prep complications); and Additional Resources (planning helps; ideas for community and leadership activities; and application lexicon). You won't be overwhelmed! Chapters are short, condensed, and dominated by bullet points and lists and even offer an Executive Summary for Busy Parents. You will find author's personal anecdotes, planning timelines and guides, lots of tips from high school planning to attending college fairs and finding scholarships. While the temptation would be to pick this up during your child's Senior high school year, this book actually will help you devise a plan and more effectively navigate all of the high school years with confidence. 7" x 10" 255 pgs, sc. ~ Ruth

    Although designed as a high school course, IPC can be an excellent science course for pre-high school students. The full course equates to two high school transcript credits: Physics and Basic Chemistry. Teachers can elect to have students complete all twelve chapters in one year to earn two transcript credits. Another option is to divide the course in half, selecting six chapters to be completed for one transcript credit for Conceptual Physics (chapters 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, 12) or six chapters for one credit in Basic Chemistry (chapters 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 11).

    Includes all texts, activity packets, and Teacher's Resource Kit w/ digital downloads.

    Within this deck of 56 cards lies the potential to build your own RNA strand. Use the RNA cards within your hand to perform one of the four primary actions – add, repair, mutate an opponent's strand, or mutate the DNA template on the table. Game play is short (ten to twenty minutes), and the person with the most points wins the game. It is fairly simple, utilizing the terminology and concepts of genetics. What a great game to reinforce the lessons from your biology curriculum and help students make sense of the concepts in a hands-on fashion.
