Beverly puts it all together in a student directed time management program that begins with goal setting, defines terms such as credit, grade, syllabus, etc. and then helps them choose their necessary courses geared to their future plans. She shows how courses can be formatted with the traditional, modified, unit study, or an independent approach. --Vicky Goodchild, HIS Publishing, Ft. Lauderdale, FL<br /><br />There is an enthusiasm for learning that comes through the pages - which, after all, is why many people are home schooling their children! We want them to keep looking and learning beyond those years we have charge over them. --Linda and Crystal Barlean, WHA s Happening , Whatcom Home School Assoc., Washington<br /><br />Unless your high schooler is enrolled in a planned curriculum or one of you is an extremely organized person, you and he may have figured out some of the things in this course on your own, but especially if you are working with your first high schooler the chances are that you and he are not entirely certain that you are doing all you should in the area of keeping records, etc. Home School, High School and Beyond can help you do this.

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Laura B. Mckenzie on May 24, 2002
Format: Paperback
The book is useful for homeschooling parents who want to plan and help their child keep a portfolio of the high school years. It is also a COURSE for the child to take in time management.
Beyond the wonderful, helpful ideas, the child is taught steps to complete his/her own personal notebook organizer (with plans, calendars, personal goals, etc sheets inside). The book also teaches the child to plan his education and develop life goals.
The last part of the book contains forms for the notebook, project and essay checklists, course planning sheets (a child can plan his own course and have evidence of completion of that course), and many other helpful organizers.
THEN there is a CD free with it. It contains all those sheets in PDF form PLUS a scope and sequence and goals for just about any typical high school course you could think of (no environmental science but yes, even calculus).
I can't say enough good things about the book. I wish I had my oldest going through it last year (he's doing that now) and I plan to have my middle son go through it this summer before he starts 9th grade. My biggest problem is organization. The lack of it causes me to waste so much time. With this book, I'm hoping my children (and I) will learn skills so they (and I) will do better.
Better yet, the book enables the child to take charge and make decisions about his/her education. COOL!
