    A sentence-composing approach gives students new tools to write mature and varied sentences. This method uses a lot of model writing from both classic and contemporary literature to show students how the pieces of the sentence combine to make it really good. Authors include: John Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Maya Angelou, J.D. Salinger, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and many others. The process is simplified into four "power tools" and five techniques which makes it easy to understand and apply. I think students will enjoy seeing samples of authors they may have read to demonstrate good writing. They are more likely to emulate an author's style and format if they like their stories. It is an approach which sets this book apart from others. I found this to be well organized and easy to follow. 233 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    I have a lot of skills and I've achieved more than I thought during high school. Most of us can quickly recognize that this student has not created an effective resume. Do you know how to instruct your child to do better? Obviously, the goal is to prepare a document that highlights the student's skills, background, and personal qualities. This 154-page, step-by-step guide gives students the tools they need to describe what they've done and can do. By providing practice in writing every part of the resume, students will develop the skills necessary to produce a quality document. Although targeting students in public schools, this tool is adaptable tool for homeschooled students. 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

    “A Time Management, Organization, and Career Exploration Course for Christian Home-Schooled Teens.” A rather lengthy subtitle, but very accurate. The author of Spelling Power has placed both a learning and planning tool in the hands of teens. If you want to control your child’s educational plans for the future - skip this. But if you want to empower your teen to begin to take charge of his life - this is great! As students work through this 9-week, ¼-credit course they learn essential planning and organizational skills while constructing a plan for high school and beyond. Definitely Christian in perspective, students are encouraged to seek God’s will when setting goals and to “make time for God” when creating weekly and daily schedules. The book is interesting, well-written, and logically organized into nine main units: Establishing Goals and Setting Priorities; Create Your Tentative High School Plan; Working Out This Year’s Plan; Planning Individual Courses; Completing Assignments and Projects; Making Weekly and Daily Schedules; Keep Records of Your Accomplishments; Making Decisions About Post High School Education; Paying for College. Accompanied by a helpful array of reproducible forms, these take your students through long- and short-term goal setting, through the nuts and bolts of planning each year, down to weekly and daily scheduling, keeping records of progress, and looking into the options for the future, including college. Your student will emerge with a better, “big picture” view of his education and its relevance in his life. The author does not assume a particular philosophy of education throughout, but, rather, does an excellent job of allowing for different educational approaches and learning preferences. She explains how to include outside activities and learning experiences as coursework and translate them into credits. While it would be ideal to use this course at the outset of high school, it could be implemented any time during the high school years.

    High school record keeping is more important than tracking the progress of your elementary student, so the good folks that brought you the popular Homeschooler’s Journal now have a high school version. As with the Journal, the bulk of the High School Journal is devoted to the weekly lesson layout. Seven columns (vs. six for the Journal) for subjects times five rows for days gives you 40 squares to work with on each pair of pages. These squares contain seven lines for writing details (as opposed to the open format of the squares in the Journal). In the lower right is a handy chart for keeping track of hours spent per subject each week, recordable in quarter-hour increments. Since the method of study (unit studies, structured text, multiple students per subject, etc.) varies from family to family, several examples show various methods of using the weekly lesson layout to your best advantage. The only other change for the High School Journal is a “Grade Record” which replaces the “Test Score Keeper” in the Journal. Daily grades can be recorded in up to 10 subjects for up to 192 days. Other miscellaneous forms in the Journal remain unchanged.

    Why not? Why not continue to teach spelling and vocabulary in high school? Just because most spelling programs end in either the 6th or 8th grade doesn't mean it's a good idea. This is the perfect program for a high schooler, allowing the student to combine spelling/vocabulary with particular subjects that are being studied. In the same manner as its younger sister, Phonetic Zoo, the program uses auditory input with frequency to achieve mastery. The newly revised (and lower-priced!) set includes two CD-ROMs which contain nine sets of MP3 audio vocabulary lessons and PDF booklets. Lesson sets follow specific subject topics including: Art & Architecture, Bible & Theology, Business & Economics, Government & Law, Greek & Latin Word Roots, Health & Science, Literature, Music and SAT/ACT. Each lesson features 24 words. Each word is pronounced, used in a sentence, and pronounced again, leaving time for the student to write the word. Later, the student checks his spelling as the word is spelled and the definition given on the CD. After each set of eight words, a short subject-related poem is inserted for the listener's relaxation. The student is expected to go through a lesson once each day until he can spell all its words perfectly. ~ Janice

    Another inspiring and engaging novel by Avi, and winner of a handful of children's choice book awards, this is one that is definitely hard to put down. Determined and resourceful Ida Bidson dreams of being a teacher someday, and with 8th grade examinations approaching, and a good year on the farm last year, it just might be possible to convince her parents to let her attend high school in the city. But when an unexpected turn of events forces the teacher of their one-room schoolhouse to return home, the school board decides not to find a replacement until the next year, and expecting the children to repeat the year. Ida is distraught at the idea of repeating 8th grade, and her dreams of being a teacher, already on shaky ground, may bite the dust. Unless… they can find a way to finish the school year themselves. Will Ida's first teaching job be a success or enough to make her reconsider? And can she still complete her own studies while teaching the other students their lessons, AND helping out with the farm work? And how long can they keep a "secret school" a secret in the valley where gossip spreads like wildfire? Definitely a page-turner, as well as an inspiring story where a girl who refuses to let go of her dreams doesn't mind a lot of challenging work to get there. - Jess

    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.
