Episode 55: Homeschooling High School and Alternative Ways to Earn College Credit | Jennifer Cook DeRosa
FOLLOW US ON: APPLE PODCASTS | GOOGLE PLAY We’ve been talking about homeschooling high school this month… and I’ve been trying to encourage parents who are on the fence that they can do it. AND they can do it well. One area that I get a lot of questions about is that of alternative ways to earn college credit. Listen in as we discuss a variety of ways to earn college credit, including some without your typical college course. What are your recommendations for a high school plan that includes alternative college credits? (1) Earning college credit that aligns with a high school plan. This is as simple as matching up CLEP exams that coordinate to your teen’s high school courses and using dual enrollment courses if they are available. (2) Associate degree through dual enrollment. Families that have access to dual enrollment will also have access to college advisors. They’ll help you pick courses that meet their associate degree requirements, and your teen can work towards completing a full associate degree in high school. (3) Bachelor’s degree planning in high school. This 4-part series addresses this unique goal that some families have. In this pathway, a parent maps out alternative credits (like AP, CLEP, DSST, Sophia, Studycom, Straighterline, etc.) to match up with a college’s bachelor’s degree requirements. To be clear, when parents do this, they are doing this without the support or guidance of a college. Most colleges do not endorse this kind of planning, and are unlikely to help you in any significant way.

Episode 54: Homeschooling High School & College Alternatives
FOLLOW US ON: APPLE PODCASTS | GOOGLE PLAY College, not a good fit? Just not sure what your teen wants to do? In this podcast, we’ll be talking about alternatives to a college education. Don’t worry! Today’s homeschooled teen is well-equipped to find alternative paths to their future career! Volunteering While In High School Volunteering is a great way to determine if you or your teen really want to work in a certain field. Volunteering gives you hands-on experience that will help you know if a field is right for you! Local volunteering opportunities with local friends and business owners Habitat for Humanity Peace Corps Virtual Volunteering There are many other volunteer ideas for after high school. Military Options for Homeschoolers JROTC – check with your local JROTC Naval Sea Cadets – after school programs Civil Air Patrol – apply/pay dues or use the online option Young Marines – contact your local chapter Wondering how to get started on a military career. The process is quite similar for homeschoolers as it is for traditional students. Here’s an example from the Army requirements for homeschoolers. Military Requirements for Homeschoolers Have a good transcript Take the ASVAB test Take The AIM test (army) Homeschoolers can also participate in the Future Soldiers Program (army) Enter the Workforce? Research what is needed for the job they desire. Speak to someone who has worked in the field Job shadow Volunteer to gain experience Create a resume (goodwill industries is a great resources for resume creation and job preparation) Begin an Internship Not sure what an internship is? Simply put, an internship is when you – as a student or trainee – agree to work somewhere often without pay in exchange for the ability to gain experience in a field. For instance, your student may graduate with a journalism degree but have zero post-college experience in the publishing industry. When your student realizes job prospects are slim without experience, he or she may decide to take on the editor internship opportunity at the local paper. Your student probably won’t receive money for it but he or she will get a foot in the door of the local paper and gain experience at the same time. The concept of internships stems from the apprenticeships of yesterday. The difference between an apprenticeship and internship is that interns are usually more exploratory. An apprenticeship was a position people took on in an effort to learn a specific trade. Internships, however, allow the individual to pursue various interests. Also, unlike apprentices, interns aren’t bound to work for the same company once the internship is over. While internships can be paid or unpaid, most interns are not paid. How do internships help? Gaining experience. – this works for both college grads and non-college-bound adults. Employers don’t want to hire someone without experience. Networking – internships allow for meeting people within the desired field Beef up the resume – this is important because employers want to see a well-rounded individual with soft skills as well as experience. You can gain referrals and recommendations through your internship. Setting the stage. Many times, internships help lay the foundation for your student’s future career. Employers often choose from amongst their own interns when job positions become available. How to find internships.

Episode 52: Why Middle School is So Important!
FOLLOW US ON: APPLE PODCASTS | GOOGLE PLAY Hasn’t the growth of homeschooling been so exciting? It really is, but with that growth parents have the concern about homeschooling as their children get older. We’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to homeschool middle school and how to prepare students for high school. Middle school is a fairly challenging time, I know with my six kids they tend to hit their growth spurt in 6th/7th grade which often gives them the look of an older teenager. And with that people tend to expect alot from them. I know I’ve had to remind myself when I’ve expected them to emotionally respond like an older child that I need to REMEMBER they’re only in middle school. Middle School is an interesting time in a child’s life. Join me as I chat with Lee Ann Garfias of Homeschool Made Easy. You can find her at www.lagarfias.com.

Episode 50: Homeschool Tips to Avoid Burnout | Melanie Wilson
FOLLOW US ON: APPLE PODCASTS | GOOGLE PLAY | STITCHER Homeschooling has seen incredible growth in 2020 and even rolling into 2021. Yet, one thing I have noticed, there are a lot of moms and dads that are now at home – homeschooling and working 24/7 and for the first time they are battling depression and burnout. I know different people have a lot of different answers to this concern… and some can leave you more confused than before. She probably doesn’t know this – but Melanie’s website and podcast is something that I’ve turned to on occasion for words of encouragement when I’ve felt burn out or overwhelmed. One in particular that I enjoyed was the episode about Homeschooling with a Broken Spirit. One question that we’ve been getting from many parents who are trying to juggle so much, is how do they deal with burnout or even depression. Is this something that you’ve seen as well? I feel like the triggers over the past year really are many – from lifestyle changes to pandemic concerns, to political worries. Physical exhaustion? Overworked? Staying indoors too much?

Episode 48: Setting Up Your Homeschool Room | Leah Hudson
FOLLOW US ON: APPLE PODCASTS | GOOGLE PLAY | STITCHER I’m so thrilled that the homeschooling community has grown by leaps and bounds… But I’m finding that more and more homeschool families are doing double duty. Most are homeschooling and working from home. This is a wonderful opportunity – but it’s not without challenges! The question that we get from many parents who are trying to juggle so much, is how to set up their home in a way that creates and fosters a learning environment. There really are many ways to accomplish this…and I think every seasoned homeschool mom would have some helpful tips – I invited Leah to share because I found several articles on her website Simple.Home.Blessings.com that were super helpful. So Leah is here today to speak to this common homeschool challenge. Speaking for myself – I’ve been a homeschooler for over a decade and still I search for helpful tips and advice on how to setup my homeschool and get things organized. Where should we start with using our home for learning? Our homes are used for living, homeschooling, and sometimes working from home… how can we create an atmosphere that is conducive to all three – But most especially learning. Why is organization so important? How do you set up your homeschool? Ideas for using a room – kitchen table? Practical tips for making each work well? Staying on top of teaching materials/supplies/printables Streamlining our system – from scheduling to curriculum – the organization is more than just a clean/neat house but affects our time, our thinking, and our routines.

Episode 45: Getting Started and Unrealistic Homeschool Expectations| Guest Andrea Dillon
FOLLOW US ON: APPLE PODCASTS | GOOGLE PLAY | STITCHER Before we get started, I’d like to introduce my co-host today – Andrea Dillon – from A2Zhomeschooling.com. Andrea, we’re glad you could join us! I’ve known Andrea for several years and she is an amazing super smart “teacher turned homeschool” mom of two. She is also a single mom homeschooling – So – for those of you struggling to figure out how to homeschool as a single parent… today is the day to ask your questions! I know Andrea will be glad to share. So to get our feet wet today – we’re just going to Talk Homeschooling for a few minutes until we get some questions in – and at the end we’ll answer your questions and questions that were sent in earlier. For those of you just starting out, I know homeschooling may seem overwhelming. But we want to point out that you don’t have to feel alone. We’ve been there – in fact, 14 years ago when I started homeschooling there wasn’t a lot of support. But we want you to know today – we’re right here – supporting you on your homeschool journey. A lot of our interactions in today’s world are virtual – but don’t forget there may be some amazing support opportunities in your local community. Even with the situation today I would encourage you to reach out for local support. You can also visit our support groups page on Homeschool.com for help finding groups in your area… Have you heard about homeschool microschools or learning pods? So – I’m sure many of you are wondering if you’re even cut out for homeschooling? If you started in January – you may be still in the “sticker shock” phase. But, even if you’re wondering if you’re smart enough or if you can really give your kids the education they need – – – the big answer is YES! -no matter who you are, where you live, what your unique abilities are – – you can homeschool your children. AND even prepare them for their future or for college. The bottom line requirement is simply the ability to foster a love of learning. That takes no special skill – no formal education – and most younger children already have this “inquiring mind” built in… so it’s just a matter of directing them. And for those of us who’ve been doing this a while we’d assure you to make LIFE your most important curriculum. I want to also say – that when it comes to homeschooling your child – YOU ARE THE EXPERT!The post Episode 45: Getting Started and Unrealistic Homeschool Expectations| Guest Andrea Dillon first appeared on Homeschool.com.

Episode 44: Mid Year Changes Are Absolutely OK!
If you are a beginner homeschooler, our team at homeschool.com has put together comprehensive resources that will help you homeschool from preschool through high school. There is so much from guides to getting started to printable tools that help you get it done – visit the getting started area on the homeschool.com website to get in on something amazing. Visit Getting Started Resources Here. For those of you who’ve been homeschooling, this year and have been finding it increasingly difficult or have lost all enjoyment in the process… today’s episode will help you find a solution. First, let me say that I’m a pretty stubborn person, I’m also pretty frugal. So, when things in our homeschool feel like they are unraveling I begin to feel a little panicky and a lump starts to rise in my throat. I know… it sounds rather silly… but I know what’s coming. AND I know that if do what I need to do then I’m probably going to have to change some things around. Sometimes that can cost money – and then of course I start feeling guilty because I didn’t have it all together in the first place and now look – I wasted money on school resources that didn’t work. Well, that’s a trap – because first of all we can never know what will work and what won’t…our children are unique and change from year to year – – and in reality, homeschooling is a series of trials and errors and learning from mistakes and successes. REALLY there is no room for guilt trips (yeah – I know I’m preaching to myself right there). There is only room for moving on and looking for what does work. So all of that to say – if you’re feeling like something just isn’t right… if you’re feeling that homeschooling isn’t bringing you joy – instead you dread it each day… then you may need to take inventory of your homeschool to see what’s going on.

Episode 40: What is Classical Education? | Guest Leigh Bortins
FOLLOW US ON: APPLE PODCASTS | GOOGLE PLAY | STITCHER Hello everyone and welcome back to Homeschool.com’s Homeschooling and Loving It Podcast We are on Episode 40 and today we are talking about Classical Homeschooling! For many homeschoolers, our desire to homeschool springs from a priority to give our children a different more unique educational experience. However, sometimes it can be challenging to find a clear path to accomplishing that. Here today to help us understand the fundamentals of Classical Education is Leigh Bortins from Classical Conversations. Leigh is joining us today from South Carolina and of course, I’m here in – not so sunny today – middle Georgia. I just love technology and how we can connect across the country through mutual interests? Leigh is a nationally acclaimed educator and founder of Classical Conversations. Leigh holds a degree in aerospace engineering as well as a D.Min.from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton, Massachusetts. She has published several books including The Core, The Question, and The Conversation, a series that explores the classical trivium from a parent’s perspective. And Leigh is currently working on developing a math curriculum that maps the structure of learning K4-12 math from a classical, Christian perspective. Yet all of her emphasis on the enjoyment of learning and fundamentals of education stem from her experience homeschooling her four boys. I’ve had an interest in Classical Education, but felt that it was all very complicated. Leigh skillfully broke down the basic concepts of Classical Education in such a way that I was literally blown away. I could finally see clearly the simplistic way that Classical Education mirrored natural learning. The basic 3 steps of learning anything follow: Grammar Stage Dialectic Stage Rhetoric Stage Listen in to hear how simplistically Leigh explains these stages and how they can apply to all learning! I promise it will be enlightening. Favorite quotes from this episode: Learning is a great big jagged line of success and failure. I’ve never been presented with this day with my children before. Every day should contain something that causes struggle and something that causes delight! You can find out more about Classical Conversations here.
