College Prep Homeschooling Is Wonderful
on May 13, 2008
This book is a wonderful resource for people who are thinking about or definitely know they want to teach their children at home through the high school years. Not only does this book provide specific and clear explanations about the high school years from the experienced perspective of a homeschooling couple who taught their first two children at home all the way through high school, but it also provides a college professor's (David's) expert insights about what skills and knowledge students need to have in order to be successful in higher education.
There aren't many books out there written about the high school years of homeschooling. Those that are available often offer only the homeschooling family's personal and non-authoritative experiences, but not enough information from the perspectives of colleges and universities. Those that offer such perspectives offer them second-hand through interviews or information obtained from college officials. College-Prep Homeschooling offers information about why students succeed or fail in college from Dr. Byers' extensive experience and knowledge as a college professor. Dr. Byers holds an earned doctorate in Education with a specialization in Teaching and Learning.
From lesson plans to transcripts, this book has it all. It is soon to be a best seller among homeschooling families.
