I met Barbara Mesh at the HERI Convetion in Jacksonville, Florida this year. That meeting made my whole weekend worth-while. I felt an instant sister-hood with this woman – who prayed with me on several occasions (we had booths next to each other!)
She is truly a woman who loves the Lord and serves the homeschooling community with a heart to help families with high schoolers succeed. Her book is a gold-mine of information and a must-have if you have a high school student. Stacey Smith reviews it for you below!
Are you nervous about homeschooling your high schooler? Are you confused about Florida’s graduation requirements? Do you need help defining credits and preparing transcripts? How to Create a Home School Transcript Your Way by Barbara Mesh, is the perfect resource to equip you for the high school journey.
This resource is like having a personal high school guidance counselor’s wisdom and advice right at your fingertips. Available as a spiral-bound, printed book or as a downloadable e-book, this resource explains much more than how to put together a nice looking transcript that colleges will accept. The author asks the parent to examine his/her educational philosophy, wordview, and the student’s gifts and talents before charting the course for high school. She then explains how to take all of those elements and combine them into a well-designed plan for homeschooling through high school. Barbara Mesh walks the parent through establishing credits, keeping records, grading, creating transcripts, generating a diploma, and much more. The book is filled with examples and useful record keeping forms.
I highly recommend this resource to any parent who is either preparing to embark on the high school journey or who is currently navigating the high school waters.
