Reviews - What do customers think about Homeschooling High School: Planning Ahead for College Admission (New and Updated)?
If you're not Christian beware Apr 22, 2008
This book must have good things to offer as far as homeschooling through high school in concerned, but if you're not Christian you may have a hard time wading through the lectures (and scripture passages) about how important Christianity is before you find it.
In Chapter Two "Blueprint for Success" I was surprised to learn that "all homeschoolers should do a thorough study of the evidence for both creation and evolution." I was also surprised to learn that "intellectual honesty demands that you consider all reasonable evidence" in regard to creationism. Why would a non-Christian need to do that? Does the author also ask the reader to consider the scientific evidence for the Buddhist idea of creation? How about any of the myriad of Pagan ideas of creation? Hindu? Islamic? Taoist? Shinto? Sikh? Greek? Mende? Nope. Just Christianity.
Even while you are reading the nitty gritty how-to's later on in the book Christianity keeps peeking in with phrases like "God-given powers of intellect", "moral virtues", "where God wants them to be".
Finally in the General Curriculum Appendix B you will be flooded with Christian curriculum, with very little else.
It would have been nice to be told somewhere up front that this book had a Christian slant before I got it. The title, back cover and chapter headings do not allude to this fact at all.
informative Nov 17, 2007
I ordered several books on homeschooling through high school and preparing for college. My oldest is in 8th grade and I knew nothing about how to keep records and preparing for college transcripts. Of all the books I ordered, I think this is the best. Jeanne Gowen Dennis walks you through every phase of preparation. There are blank pages of record keeping and examples of how to fill them out. This is what I needed. I have already started to fill in the pages with her courses/descriptions. I would recommend this book to everyone homeschooling who is getting ready for high school and looking ahead to college.
Homeschooling High School: Planning Ahead for College Admission Feb 23, 2006
I purchased this book, which was recommended by a home schooling mom, as a resource to refer other home schoolers to. I have not read it as yet myself. I am a consultant to our mission board's MK parents.
This is a Big Help Jul 2, 2003
This book has a lot of Helpful information in it. By reading this book, I have saved myself a lot of time at researching the topics that I found in this book.
A versatile reference for homeschoolers Feb 9, 2001
I was asked to review Jeanne Dennis's book by the publisher because of my interest in helping home schoolers. I've seen the range of questions and concerns home schoolers have shared with each other through email lists and web sites. I feel the book provides many practical ways to systematically prepare for admission to college. As a veteran college admissions officer, I'm glad this book is available for the rapidly growing number of home schoolers forging their paths to college with great independence.
