Item Description...

You are an educator. Your kids rely on you to teach them to read, write, and think. But sometimes you feel like you need a mentor for certain subjects, right? If you're serious about homeschooling, then you've probably had a few questions.

What do I need to know about using standardized tests? How can I prepare my children for college? Is there any support available for home educators like me?

In this practical book, Vicki Caruana and several other educational experts answer these questions and more. They offer answers to homeschoolers seeking guidance on a variety of issues:

  • Making the most of testing and evaluation
  • Running a home-based business
  • Fostering community involvement
  • Teaching high school and preparing for college entrance
  • Working with traditional schools
  • Homeschooling in a military setting
  • Joining and starting support groups and co-ops
  • Educating children with special needs
  • Study skills for children of all learning styles
  • Making music a part of a child's education

If you homeschool, this book should be at your fi ngertips to help you negotiate the exciting challenges of home education. It is a gold mine of information for homeschoolers who have children of all ages-for homeschoolers who want to learn.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not what I was expecting...  Sep 3, 2006
I was hoping for some detailed information about Home based businesses and all the other subjects the title contains. I was quite disappointed. The chapter on home businesses more or less convinces you it is a waste of time and not to do it. Very disheartening. This book was not informative to me in any way. I agree with the previous review that said there is better info for free on the web.

We all have our personal tatses for authors. This author is well intentioned but I do not like her writing style. She is hard to follow and very bland.
This book is a waste of time and money  May 2, 2005
I have been homeschooling for years, and when I did a search on books for homeschooling to help with evaluation and narrative reviews, this book came up. I purchased it and I am returning it. The information that is in this book is not specific and you could get more useful information online for free. Even if you are a new homeschooler, this book doesn't provide any more than common sense. Take the money that you would spend on this book and take your kids out to lunch .. it would be better spent.
Not the typical "how to" homeschool manual  Nov 17, 2003
This book was different than the myriad of books that I have read on home schooling in that it goes beyond the basic issues normally discussed. It covers home schooling in the military, running a home-based business, including music in our curriculum (often a neglected subject), etc.
She encourages us to be involved in our community as home schoolers rather than just a separate society with our own elite groups. Her thoughts on relationships with public schools were definitely thought provoking as so often we are told, to "avoid them like the plague." Her rationale and reasoning are well thought out on this issue.
A good read.
