|Vuillard Family Reading by Charles Vuillard|
I thought I might try to do an occasional Homeschool Highschool web roundup to help with our team effort to bring more highschool information to you all who have young teens or near-teens in the homeschool.
Since Chari and I both do literature-based homeschooling, most of what I will be looking for is literature-based high school -- with forays into Charlotte Mason, unschooling and classical styles, since these are the most likely to use Real Books and Real Resources (and yes, textbooks CAN sometimes be Real Resources -- it all depends!)
Since we are Catholic, I will generally be looking for Catholic or Catholic-compatible resources.
And I will probably link these in with our future posts for the Homeschool Highschool Carnivals, because one of the goals of that project is to make resources available in an organized fashion so they can continue to be used after the carnival series is over.
For starters, don't miss this
Someone was good enough to make this collection of posts by Susan of High Desert Home and My Summer Notebook.
They are wonderful to browse through if you want something different for your homeschooled high schooler than just using a standard or public school type curriculum. It is inspiring to get to look into the highschool years of one particular homeschool family -- not so much lists of books here, as a glimpse into a style and philosophy that is unique, tailored to the family, and successful.
Readlists is a nice tool, by the way, if you want to make a collection of articles or other web resources on a topic. Supposedly it will bundle the articles into a collection you can send to your IPhone or Kindle. I haven't had a whole lot of luck doing this successfully (my Kindle cuts the articles off after a page or two) but I haven't experimented with it much yet. Maybe it works better with IPhone/IPad or with newer-generation Kindles.
