Teaching High School Science isn't Rocket Science! You don't have to work at NASA to teach your teens effectively! "Houston, we have a problem!" Homeschool parents often approach teaching high school science as if being asked to build the space shuttle. But teaching your kids science doesn't require a PhD. All it requires is a willing heart, an organized approach, and some simple facilitation skills. There is no reason for science to be scary. Let Lee Binz, The HomeScholar, show you the way! Lee's fearless approach and easy to follow guidance will make any parent a science success, no matter how science-phobic! Just keep in mind the first principle of homeschooling high school: "You don't have to learn it. Your kids have to learn it." In this book, you will learn the keys to science success, including: what to teach, why to teach it, and how to teach it. You will discover science curriculum options, and learn how to choose the one that will be best for your family (and save you money)! You will learn how to keep great science records to demonstrate your kids' learning effectively. Learn essential strategies to motivate your kids to succeed in science! Here's Why You Need This Book: Understanding science is a requirement for every homeschool graduate. It isn't just essential for college, but for functioning in the world. The good news is, there have never been such great tools available to help you impart this critical knowledge to your teens. "Simple Science for Homeschooling High School" will reveal these tools and provide you the insights you need to put them to work in your family. "Simple Science for Homeschooling High School" is part of The HomeScholar's Coffee Break Book series. Designed especially for parents who don't want to spend hours and hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school, each book combines Lee's practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop! Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable, each book in the series will give parents the tools they need to tackle the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.

THE COLFAXES DIDN'T START TEACHING THEIR BOYS AT HOME TO GET THEM INTO HARVARD - BUT THAT'S WHAT HOMESCHOOLING ACCOMPLISHED! For over fifteen years, David and Micki Colfax educated their children at home. They don't think of themselves as pioneers, though that's what they became. Unhappy with the public schools, the Colfaxes wanted the best education possible for their four sons: a program for learning that met the evolving needs of each child and gave them complete control of how and what their children learned. The results? A prescription for excellence-Harvard educations for their sons Grant, Drew, and Reed. (Their fourth son is still too young for college.) Now the Colfaxes tell how all parents can become involved in homeschooling. In a straight-talking book that reads like a frank conversation among friends, they tell what they did and how they did it: their educational approaches, the lessons they learned, and what materials-books, equipment, educational aids-proved most useful over the years. Best of all, they show you how you can take charge of your children's education-in an invaluable sourcebook that will help you find a rewarding and successful alternative to our failing schools.
