Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Avoiding Transcript Trauma: Triage for High School Records and Documentation
Why is documentation of high school coursework important? Keeping good records does not need to be time consuming or burdensome; it will actually save you time and effort in the long run. Learn about the resources that are available as you track your students progress through high school.

Developing a Plan for High School: Sample Four-Year Plans
How do you plan a program for your high school homeschooler? What subjects do you teach and when? Do you follow a basic high school plan, a general college prep plan, or a rigorous college prep plan? How do you evaluate credits? Determine grades for a course? What about creating a transcript and diploma? If you are just beginning to think about homeschooling during the high school years, this seminar will help you organize your thoughts and begin laying the groundwork for a viable four-year plan.

Homeschooling Thru High School: Turning the Impossible Trek into an Enjoyable Journey
HSLDA's new Homeschooling Thru High School program was born out of a desire to help parents continue homeschooling throughout the high school years. The new high school section on HSLDA's website provides tons of valuable information for those who are just thinking about high school or who are already immersed in the high school years. We'll take you on a tour of the web pages and give you an overview of the You Can Do It, Before High School, During High School, and After High School sections. HSLDA is with you from the first days of homeschooling right through graduation day.

Homeschooling the College Bound: Successfully Navigating the Road to Admissions
If your child's post high school plans include college, you'll want to carefully plan out his high school years. This seminar will provide you with tips and resources to help you better understand how you can prepare your high schooler for the challenges of college, as well as aid you in helping him select and apply to colleges as a homeschooled student. You'll receive information on making the most of a college visit, interacting with college admissions officers, and gathering the information needed for the college application.

Teaching Options: Diversify Your High School Program
Once a child hits the high school years, a myriad of teaching options for providing high school courses becomes available: parent-taught classes, co-op classes, private tutors, community college courses, online courses, and correspondence schools. Each option is viable, yet which should you pursue for your child?

Build A Sure Foundation: Stay the Course Through High School
As your child grows older, you may be considering high school at home but youve got your doubts! Why is homeschooling high school a crucial decision for your teen? How is it possible? What help is available? Well answer your questions; but more importantly, well encourage and challenge you to explore the steps you should take as you weigh the possibility of teaching high school at home.

Homeschooling for the Marketplace, the Home Front, or the Military (With Becky Cooke)
Your child may have no desire to go to college--or perhaps he does not need a college education to fulfill his post-high school objectives. Nonetheless, the high school years are an important time to provide him an academic program which includes options and information on various careers and opportunities that exist in the marketplace, on the home front, or in the military.

High School Transcript Clinic:  Practical Tips and Record Keeping Help

A high school transcript is easy to create, yet a vital part of your child’s high school records. In this interactive, practical seminar, you’ll create a transcript that can be used as a pattern when designing your own. We’ll guide you through transcript essentials, evaluation of credit, grading guidelines and scales, and calculation of grade point averages (GPAs). You’ll receive sample transcripts depicting other formats for you to consider.  In addition, you’ll learn about necessary record keeping for high school and how to track your student’s progress through the high school years.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Diane Kummer and other workshop leaders and speakers.
