Have you been reading the fabulous series about homeschooling through high school over at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers? Kris' series is a must-read for home educators who have children of any age. Today is Day 6 of her series and I'm guest posting about teaching high school level science courses. Kris has covered a wide range of topics in this series including:
- Homeschooling High School: Introduction
- Homeschooling High School: Figuring Out Coursework
- Homeschooling High School: Determining Credits
- Homeschooling High School: Credits
