There is no getting around the fact that homeschooling through high school involves record keeping. This used to really scare me. I have a love/hate relationship with record keeping. I love seeing the evidence of all the we’ve accomplished when we add up the little tally marks and credits. But I hate squeezing everything into neat little boxes. Our children’s schooling often comes about in bit and pieces over a period of time rather than in in large chunks during a focused amount of time. So, how do I keep track?
One way a parent can track credit hours for those outside-the-box learning experiences is a simple system using index cards. I am sharing more about this over at Year Round Homeschooling during their month-long high school series. I hope you’ll pop over to read all about how I use index cards to track the courses that do not fit neatly into a textbook or check box. Whether you are in the
trenches midst of educating a high schooler or plan to be there one day, you’ll find plenty of encouragement and a few ideas to help with your own record keeping ( and everything related to homeschooling high school.)
