Homeschooling: The Teen Years : Your Complete Guide to Successfu
- Prima Lifestyles 0761520937

The teen years are when many homeschooling parents start to question or abandon their efforts. It's a precarious time, with challenging academics, pressing social issues, and the prospect of college looming. Parents can now breathe easy: this guide calms the teen-time jitters and even offers hope to those just turning to homeschooling now that their child is about to enter high school. With brief "how we did it" testimonies from other parents sprinkled throughout the book, author Cafi Cohen offers sage advice with the turn of every page. A columnist for Home Education Magazine and Homeschooling Today, two of the most respected periodicals on the subject, Cohen has also homeschooled her two children into college. To comfort doubters, she begins with 10 reasons for homeschooling your teenager (work experience, limited peer pressure, and family togetherness, among them). She goes on to devote long chapters to traditional subjects such as math and history, and even gets to those you might not have considered, like driver education. Her suggestions for parents new to homeschooling: decompress slowly, study only one subject a month at first, and read at least one book on learning styles. This approach will save much time and reduce those trial-and-error episodes.

The Complete Home Learning Source Book : The Essential Resource
Rebecca Rupp - Three Rivers Press 6098010900

This ambitious reference guide lives up to its name. Practically three inches thick--and we're not talking large print here--it's packed with titles, ordering information, and Web site addresses. From where to send away for a kit to make your own Chilean rain stick to how to order a set of Elizabethan costume paper dolls, the book connects families to a world of learning possibilities. Book titles, short synopses, authors' names, publishers, and years of print make up the bulk of the guide. Classics such as The Cat in the Hat and Curious George share billing with lesser-known titles like Stone Fox, the story of a legendary Indian dog-sled racer. Every entry appears with recommended ages and an icon that shows whether the item is a book, computer disc, or video; an outstretched palm denotes hands-on materials. Most of the resources seem to have been test-driven by the author and her three homeschooled sons. Rebecca Rupp, a former scientist who has been teaching her kids at home for more than 10 years, peppers the guide with anecdotes about her children's experiences in various subject areas, much of it drawn from the family's extensive journals. Along with books, magazines, and kits for reading, math, writing, science, and history, a considerable amount of space is given to computer and television resources, as well as "life skills," a broad category that includes everything from etiquette and carpentry to sewing and sex education. Like a Yellow Pages guide to knowledge, The Complete Home Learning Sourcebook belongs on the shelf of anyone looking for new ways to spark a child's imagination. -- Jodi Mailander Farrell

Schoolproof: How to Help Your Family Beat the System and Learn t
Mary Pride - Crossway Books 0891074805

What is schoolproofing? Schoolproofing means making sure your children get a great education, no matter what political or educational theory happens to be in vogue. It means having children who learn to read in an age of illiteracy; who learn to obey legitimate authority in an age of sullen rebellion; who learn to stand against injustice in an age of craven conformity.... In this practical work by the guru of the Home Schooling movement, Mary Pride covers these important topics: (1) getting organized; (2) motivating your students while respecting them; (3) steps to independent learning; (4) 20 ways to present a lesson; and (5) how to recognize and dump educational clutter. But Schoolproof is much more than a how-to book. You'll understand why different educational philosophies work—or don't work—and where we should go from here.

The Successful Homeschool Family Handbook
Raymond & Dorothy Moore - Nelson Books 0785281754

A Creative and Stress-Free Approach to Homeschooling. This is the first book I read when looking into homeschooling. I had no intentions of actually homeschooling, but by the time I had finished reading what Dr. Moore had to say, I was thinking, "How could I NOT do it?" This book has a balanced approach that is reassuring to which our children have responded to beautifully. It was written as very much against early formal schooling and pressuring children before they are ready, but it also does not swing to the other extreme by being too permissive and not teaching anything at all. In fact, being a person who tended to be far too permissive, I was convinced to work harder at being self disciplined for my children's sake. Laying down good habits is a large part of what Dr. Moore teaches. Having an orderly home is the first step to successful homeschooling, and once that is in place, teaching follows naturally. He shows how learning is part of life, and how to teach especially small children by our warm response to their questions. Covering everything from teaching, reading,and preparing unit studies, to healthy eating, we get a good idea of how learning is a lifestyle and not something we just add to our regular day. The Moores have truly been a blessing to our family.

Rick Boyer writes, "You can see that what we are trying to do here is give you some ideas by which you can saturate your child's home environment with God's Word. All responsible Christian parents have a deep desire to train their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, but most of us were not brought up in the kind of home we hope to provide for our own families, and we need a little direction as to how to go about the job."

The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education
Grace Llewellyn - Lowry House Pub 0962959170

You won't find this book on a school library shelf--it's pure teenage anarchy. While many homeschooling authors hem and haw that learning at home isn't for everyone, this manifesto practically tells kids they're losers if they do otherwise. With the exception of a forwarding note to parents, this book is written entirely for teenagers, and the first 75 pages explain why school is a waste of time. Grace Llewellyn insists that people learn better when they are self-motivated and not confined by school walls. Instead of homeschooling, which connotes setting up a school at home, Llewellyn prefers "unschooling," a learning method with no structure or formal curriculum. There are tips here you won't hear from a school guidance counselor. Llewellyn urges kids to take a vacation--at least for a week--after quitting school to purge its influence. "Throw darts at a picture of your school" or "Make a bonfire of old worksheets," she advises. She spends an entire chapter on the gentle art of persuading parents that this is a good idea. Then she gets serious. Llewellyn urges teens to turn off the TV, get outside, and turn to their local libraries, museums, the Internet, and other resources for information. She devotes many chapters to books and suggestions for teaching yourself science, math, social sciences, English, foreign languages, and the arts. She also includes advice on jobs and getting into college, assuring teens that, contrary to what they've been told in school, they won't be flipping burgers for the rest of their days if they drop out.
