The high school student is an amazing and wonderful creature. It is that child that we hugged and kissed to make their booboos better… just a little taller and a little more mature! They are still those sweet inquisitive people, they have just changed form. I am so excited to see the really nice people my teenagers are growing into! Yet, that doesn’t take away the difficultly level of homeschooling these wonderful young adults. I have found alot of super curriculum to help make our journey a bit more enjoyable. We use Rosetta stone for language, Apologia for science, I teach her math, and she does a literature based study for history… but with writing… well that is a whole ‘nother story!
We struggle with writing… so using a blog format to get her creative writing juices flowing was super. She enjoys the creativity that goes along with the blog, but she actually writes on her own, which really is half the battle! If your high schooler struggles with learning to blog, why don’t you check out a blog writing course? There alot to be learned about how to manage and write well for the cyber world. So, reach for those resources that really make homeschooling the highschooler manageable!
