Transcripts Made Easy (4th Edition)
Transcripts aren't the only thing made easy! Janice Campbell has a gift for taking each aspect of homeschooling a high schooler and showing that the task CAN be done and can be done with a minimum of vexatious worry. This new 4th edition contains the practical and encouraging content from the previous editions along with valuable new information including an overview of what students need to learn in high school, a chapter on college alternatives, tips from a college professor on what every college freshman needs to know, an updated chapter on record keeping and transcripts for special needs students and detailed step-by-step instructions for creating transcripts using software you own or that you can download for free.
Starting at the beginning, Mrs. Campbell talks about when to start planning as well as the flip side of that question: what to do if you haven't been planning and high school is almost over. What to study, standardized testing, and skills and habits to cultivate in high school all receive a brief but thorough examination. With the transcript as the focal point, Mrs. Campbell covers record keeping, naming classes, grading (including how to grade ethically), and assigning credits.
Since transcripts aren't just for the "traditionally homeschooled" (whatever that is), you'll find information here for preparing transcripts for unschoolers and the chronically relaxed. This isn't just general information, either, as she gets very specific in terms of transcript (and diploma) text.
Samples of transcripts and diplomas as well as many reproducible forms (reading and activities logs, class profile, subject worksheets, and blank transcript forms) are provided. ~ Janice/Deanne
