Based on experience derived from more than twenty years of homeschooling, David and Chandra Byers show parents how to successfully homeschool their children through high school-even in subjects where they have no expertise. "College-Prep Homeschooling" contains a wealth of information to guide homeschoolers through the complexities and rewards of the homeschooling process. The Byers clearly outline curricula choices, teaching methods, and activity opportunities. In addition to preparing their own children for college, the Byers have seen firsthand that most home-taught children are fully prepared for advanced education and/or life, and often outperform their traditionally-schooled contemporaries. So far, they have two college graduates to validate their claim.Revised and updated second edition.
"Through [the Byers] insights, they provide the nuts-and-bolts of planning this challenging task and since I've been there with my own two children, their guidance is wise counsel, targeting the important characteristics that move beyond the content into the heart of learning. They distinguish teaching from the art of learning through practical suggestions and a realistic perspective."-- Dr. D. Lee Tincher, Director, Talenton School for the Gifted
