I think I retained almost NOTHING from my own public school education. I couldn't have told you within 100 years when the civil war occurred. I was so ill-prepared by my high school economics class that I failed economics in college. Now that my children are grown, they love history -they read about it for fun,can you believe it? Despite my lack of preparation, I realize that I was actually successful in homeschooling high school history. How? Let me show you!
I'm planning to Highlight on High School History to help you strategize to get this task done. I've invited some partners to help with your planning. Since I was planning to cover the topic for my Gold Care Club members anyway, this month you are invited to join me for this special club benefit, free of charge.
Please register for each class individually to attend! And share with your friends! Here are the classes and what you can learn!

Raising Global-minded Children with a Heart for the World
by Sarita Holzmann of Sonlight Curriculum
The study of history and geography through living books provides your children a much needed framework to make sense of a world beyond their own backyard. It's hard for children, young adults and even adults to understand the impacts of the uprising and unrest that is broadcast on the world stage. However, raising children to think outside of their community, country and even their hemisphere through living books opens their hearts to people from all walks of life. Join as Sarita Holzmann walks us through the importance of raising global-minded children and how reading great literature can help to raise children with a heart for the world.
A pioneer in homeschooling, Sarita Holzmann co-founded Sonlight Curriculum 27 years ago and has read and reviewed over 16,000 books (and counting) in that time. Her literature-based approach to homeschooling has proven to be a favorite for families all over the world. Sarita looks forward to helping even more families raise lifelong learners in the next generation. She is a happily married, veteran homeschool mom of four and grandmother to eight. Author of over 50 curriculum guides, she also blogs at sonlight.com/blog.

What is the difference between history and social sciences? In this workshop, I'm going to help you understand how to teach high school history, no matter how much you know (or don't know) about the subject. It's your job to figure out what your state law requires and what colleges want. Then you somehow need to find a way to make sure it happens. Let's talk about why this is an important cornerstone of homeschooling. I'll explain the core requirements. We'll go over curriculum options, including how to incorporate delight directed learning. We'll talk about how to document your student's knowledge with tests. I'll show you how to describe your successes with carefully crafted class titles, and course descriptions. Please join me, and let me explain it easily for you.
