How to Make a Scholarship Notebook!

How to Make a Scholarship Notebook!
Laura asks:  Wow, this is my first time to blog and I'm not sure what I am doing. Hopefully this is how & what I am supposed to do. Here's my question. I was at the Cascadia college fair where you showed a thick notebook which you had with many dividers. This notebook was a filing system used for researching scholarships and keeping track of stuff. I am wondering if you can tell me what the divided sections were that you used.

Dear Laura,

I had so much fun meeting you at the College Fair!  It was nice to see a friendly face in the audience when I spoke on "College Scholarships for High School Credit. "  My scholarship notebook is a three ring binder with dividers.  In the notebook are all the scholarships, placed in order of "due date."  The tabs were only to keep the scholarships separate, without anything special written on them.  If you put the due date on each tab that may help!  Only descriptions of the scholarships were in the notebook.

I'm planning to make the audio of that presentation available in the future, but my tech department (my sweet husband!) is a too busy preparing my e-book on transcripts right now to be distracted by anything else.  I'll be glad to explain things on the phone, if anyone else needs the information.  It takes an hour to get through the whole conversation.

Songwriting for English!

Songwriting for English!
Dear Lee,

Steven and I are settling into school very well this year, thanks to your help. His guitar teacher said that for English in college he took a course on how to write songs, and since Steven is specializing in music he would like to know:
1. Can he take a course in songwriting for English?
2. Will studying audio engineering for science work instead of Lego robotics engineering?
I have found a couple of nice curriculums that could support these subjects.
Thanks for all your help,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,
Oooooooohhhhhhh!  Songwriting for English!  What a TOTALLY cool idea!  Yes, I think it's wonderful!  You could include the concepts of poetry, since that's basically the same thing.  Fun!  My vote is yes!

Audio engineering sounds great too - just like the robotics, it's really just a branch of engineering sciences.  Try to touch on at least one "standard" science, but branching out for fun is a good thing.  I wouldn't have a clue how much audio engineering would be considered a credit, so having a textbook will help you.  You may want to consider counting hours, just so you can be sure of the credit value when you're done.


Jennifer responded:

Hi Lee,
I also thought song writing was totally cool and was hoping you'd think it could work.  Needless to say, Steven can't wait.  We found an online course through Berkleemusic.com that looks pretty good.

As far as audio engineering, there are many online classes, with some offering full credits.  One company offers a textbook and DVD for home study, which might be the way we'll go...I'll have to do a little more investigating.

Have a wonderful night and thanks for your input!
Jennifer
