This book lays it all out for you. Mary Schofield writes humbly, sharing her knowledge liberally for your benefit. Everything from what to teach, to how to keep records, complete with samples and blank forms for you to fill out; as well as what most states list as the usual requirements, how to develop a course plan, write a course description, and how to award credits for Junior High or High School. If your students are just starting Junior High or High School you will find this book invaluable. If you already have a handle on the situation, you will appreciate her insight and great suggestions. I borrowed a copy from a friend, but am now ordering my own. I highly recommend you do, too.
