Your child is approaching high school and suddenly you’ve got the shakes. Credits, transcripts, SATs, oh my? Do we need to put aside his special interests and buckle down into a traditional plan for English? For week 2 of the Virtual Curriculum Fair, I’m going to share how my high schooler is following his interests while earning homeschool English credits.
Our theme this week is: Playing with Words (the language arts)!
Make sure to check out the links to the other 21 homeschool bloggers participating this week---you will find them at the bottom of this post.
