Are you preparing to homeschool 9th grade? It’s not as scary as you think. I’m happy to help guide you through the process!

Preparing to Homeschool 9th Grade- The How-To Book

Welcome to Post #1 in my “Preparing to Homeschool 9th Grade” series.  Today I’ll be discussing the book

How to Homeschool 9th and 10th Grades: Simple Steps for Starting Strong by Lee Binz.

The How-To Book for Homeschooling High School

I attended my first homeschooling conference when my oldest son was 17 months old and have been a “homeschool mom” ever since. I can’t believe he will be in high school next year!  I’ve learned about homeschooling throughout the years almost as much as I’ve taught my kids.  So, I was surprised when all of a sudden I started having anxiety about homeschooling for high school a couple of weeks ago.

Then, the above book popped in my inbox and I immediately downloaded it.  Aww, I feel so much better now!  Download it yourself today, while it’s still on sale!  (You don’t need a Kindle to read a Kindle book.  Just read it on your computer or download an app to read it on other devices.)

Here are some of the things you’ll learn in this ebook by Lee Binz:

  • Setting Priorities
  • Planning High School Courses (basics)
  • Beyond the Basic High School Courses
  • Electives
  • Create Great Homeschool Records
  • Take Important Tests
  • Expect and Accept Gradual Maturity
  • Technology Boundaries
  • College Financing
  • Career Exploration and Activities
  • Looking Ahead to Sophomore Year
