    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

    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.

    “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.

    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

    College-bound high school students are expected to write essays. Of the many, there are two essays that are "once-in-a-lifetime" experiences the SAT essay and the college entrance essay. These are very specific types of writing tasks and are quite different. One is a timed response to a prompt. It must be completed quickly, coherently, and legibly. On the other hand, you can take as much time as you want writing the other. It must be as close to perfect as possible. You can prepare for these writing experiences. Andrew Pudewa, in his own inimitable style, shows you how in this entertaining, six-hour seminar. This video seminar is contained within a four DVD set two discs each covering the SAT essay and the college entrance essay. There is a bonus CD-ROM disc providing all the necessary handouts in PDF format to be printed prior to watching. These PDF handouts are also available in printed format in the Student Workbook. Also included on the bonus disc is an audio essay preparation seminar by Julie Walker in MP3 format.

    Discussion of the SAT essay includes an examination of the six-point scoring rubric - critical thinking skills, reasoning examples, language and vocabulary, sentence structure, organization and focus, and grammar, usage and mechanics - as well as analysis of scored essays and specific preparation strategies.

    Starting with an overview of what colleges are looking for in essays, the discussion of the college entrance essay progresses to an analysis of samples as well as specific writing strategies including the TRIAC model.

    As expected, the most important preparation activity for these two types of essays is to write - a lot. You can, nevertheless, make the best use of your preparation writing activities by utilizing the strategies presented in this seminar. ~ Janice

    The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective. The Limited Edition Package includes Lesson Plans; Ancient Literature Supplement; Ancient History Timeline Book and figures; Daniel Inductive Bible Study for Teens; Unwrapping the Pharaohs; Student Bible Atlas; Exploring World History set; What On Earth Am I Here For?; The Odyssey; The Cat of Bubastes; Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology; New Answers Book; The Iliad; Encyclopedia of the Ancient World; The Tabernacle; Eric Liddell; the Epic of Gilgamesh; Taking the Old Testament Challenge and Journey Through the Bible.

    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.

    From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.

    Resources for each guide are listed below; if a resource is used in both levels, it is marked with an (*).'

    Internships provide our young people with a time tested method of career exploration and preparation. Unfortunately, this type of learning has slowly been lost in the academic world and is often taught in book format rather than through experiential learning. As homeschool families, our lifestyle affords us greater opportunity to provide this excellent learning advantage to our young people. But where do you start? Frankly, internships are a lost art in our culture today, which is why I am so thankful for this book!

    Author of the popular Exploring Creation with Marine Biology, Sherri Seligson, has given high school students and their parents a vital tool for success at the high school level. Combining education and assessment, this book provides parents and students general information on internships and high school credits as well as practical details on selecting an internship and company. Once these decisions are made, the author walks you through writing a sample letter of introduction and resume. She also provides record keeping worksheets which include semester goals, a work performance evaluation form, weekly hour summary sheets, and journal logs to document work experiences, goals and skills, and evaluation forms. Skills-gained worksheets, a course wrap up (including a writing assignment) and sample thank you notes provide guidelines for concluding the internship experience. Although many internships are one semester in length, the author does provide for individual flexibility. If you choose to complete two semesters of internship, there are documentation pages for an expanded learning experience as well. Non-reproducible, spiral bound. 67 pgs. ~Deanne

    This high school planner includes 52 weeks of record-keeping space, enabling you to plan and school year-round or to use the summer or other "break" weeks to record any elective classes or extracurricular activities. Each week is laid out in an easy-to-read two page spread format. The bulk of the right and left-hand pages consists of a weekly assignment calendar that features the days of the week along the top, and nine separate subject rows along the left-hand side. Each grid square contains a box for a checkmark or score, as well as a space to record the amount of time spent on each subject. The far right-hand side contains a listing of additional books and videos to be used that week as well as a grid to list how much time was spent per week on each subject, to make calculation of credit hours easier. The planner also includes a curriculum planning grid in the front, and is helpfully spiral-bound. - Jess

    Another beneficial Homeschool Daily Planner plan book - this time for high school. While this book shares similarities with the others in the series, there are also additions geared toward high school students that set it apart. The book begins with pages for teacher's notes, and then a page is provided to record college search information. Another page provides guidelines for calculating credits and the minimum requirements for most states. Then the book is divided into four sections, one for each year of high school. The sections begin with a page to list curriculum, books that have been read, and extracurricular activities. Then come pages for daily lesson plans. These pages feature room for two weeks of plans, divided into two columns of blank boxes, with the day of the week printed at the top of the box. Each chapter then closes with a year end evaluation of credits, allowing you to keep track of the credits your child has completed. - Melissa

    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
