Happy Valentine’s Day! Free Webinar and Ebook!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you have a great Valentine’s Day, and enjoy the love of your family!  I have a gift for you: a free webinar and ebook, Taking the Mystery Out of the ACT and SAT!

 



This is a FREE full length class, PLUS Ebook for you to print and save.
Many parents get stressed by the college preparation process, but you don’t need to! Join me and Andrew Pudewa from theInstitute For Excellence in Writing as we share the secrets of successful test preparation.

In the first half of this webinar, I explain the differences between the SAT and ACT, and how to choose the right one for your student. We explore why homeschoolers have the advantage when it comes to these tests, and then discuss practical tips to help your student prepare for Test Day.

In the second half, Andrew explains powerful concepts behind successful essay writing, including specific components of high-scoring essays. This is a real meat-and-potatoes class filled with useable information. If you have a student who plans to take these tests, you won’t want to miss this information- packed webinar!

We also developed a companion ebook that covers the same material but the Ebook contains lots of helpful links, so you can dig deeper into the subject.  This is one ebook that you will want to print out for future reference.

FREE Homeschooling High School Resource!

FREE Homeschooling High School Resource!
How do you teach writing a quick essay like the one on the SAT?  I like "501 Writing Prompts" by Learning Express.  It's short, inexpensive, concise - perfect for my family!  Thanks to a tip from a reader, I have found out that the book is available FREE for a short time!  (This book is no longer available.  Please find it on Amazon for under $10 here.)

I want to encourage you to grab this free e-book while it is still available.  We checked with the web publisher, and it's only available for a short time.  You can download it to your computer for personal use, though.  It's a great resource, and FREE is always the best price!

What a great tip from a blog comment!  Thank you!

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.
