What I LOVE About Homeschooling High School with College in Mind
What I Love About Homeschooling High School with College in Mind is how Betsy uses and shares some of their unique experiences with all of us! In Chapter 9 – Making Your Own Homemade Courses she details multiple courses they created throughout her daughter’s high school experience and includes tons of resources for creating your own individual course.
Then, in Chapter 12 – The Common Application, Betsy walks you through the what, why, and how of this process – one I needed help understanding myself as it is new and a little bit foreign to me! She does a great job of explaining each step and part of the application so that we can successfully navigate this with our teens!
