PSAT Test Myths:

PSAT The Life Changing Test

Taking the PSAT is optional right? Not if you want free college! I know, you don’t think you are smart, or maybe you’ve been told that YOU as a parent didn’t receive the National Merit Scholarship – so don’t waste your time, either will your child. That is a PSAT Test Myth! Learn why the PSAT is a very valuable test and is more than just a practice test for taking the SAT. Don’t miss important deadlines, be proactive and learn, with Jean’s help some great test taking strategy and where to get a copy of the new version of the PSAT.

Show Notes:

1. The PSAT can be a life changing test. It can turn the question of “How can we afford to pay for college?” into… “Which college should we go to?”

2. The PSAT is not prep for taking the SAT test – these tests are different.

3. Getting a high score on the PSAT can possibly qualify your child as a National Merit Scholar.

4. Success is not about your IQ score.

4. The Benefits of the PSAT

5. What is on the PSAT and  how can you beat the test?

6. Critical Thinking Skills are necessary for taking standardized tests like the PSAT and the SAT

7. Understanding math terminology.

8. Using logic in answering test questions.

9. Test questions are answered in less than one minute, typically.

10. No point deduction for guessing – but the suggestion is not to guess at the answer as there is a 75% chance at failure. Jean has a better way.

11. The PSAT is in a new format – visit the CollegeBoard.org website to download a copy.

12. The PSAT is not about content – it is about tricking the student into selecting the incorrect answer.

PSAT Test Myths Debunked

1. My kid is not smart enough.

2. I didn’t receive the Nation Merit Scholarship

3. Your child has to be in 11th grade to take the test (you can take the test as young as 8th-9th grade – depending on your state)

4. The PSAT is not necessary to take.

5. The PSAT does not count.

What You are Leaving Behind

Today, we are talking about Knowing What You are Leaving Behind, in particular in relation to leaving the public school system.Angie Ferrell and what You are Leaving Behind

 

Today True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring is talkign with True North Teacher Angie Ferrell.

Today, we are talking about Knowing What You are Leaving, in particular in relation to leaving the public school system.

If you understand the history of education in America, you realize that the public schools are not failing, they are doing exactly what they were designed to do! The moral framework was taken out of education by social reformers John Dewey and Horace Mann. Each subject has become relegated to a silo, every area unrelated to another. Students became an industrialed product, totally pragmatic.

The Christian model is always a threat to unbelievers- it provides a moral framework.

Francis Schaeffer  talks about the Chirsitan consensus, societies where liberal thinkers form the foundation of Christian ideology – Liber  “ to be free”

It’s time to acknowledge that our values are under attack in the school system

  1. Can’t mention God at all
  2. Study of history/ government and economics are out of context and manipulated
  3. Logic and reasoning and critical thinking are not valued or taught
  4. Social and emotional learning  go against the very tenets of Christianity
  5. People are a product of the group dynamic,
  6. Kids are taught what to think, not how to think

Are you called to homeschool, but not sure where to start? At True North Homeschool Academy we take delight in coming alongside fellow homeschoolers as they head True North!

In the fall, Angie will be teaching

Special Replay: Conversational Homeschooling

This week on Homeschool Highschool Podcast is a Special Replay: Conversational Homeschooling.

Conversational Homeschooling

Conversational Homeschooling

We all know that there’s not ONE right way to homeschool high school! With that in mind, we would like to share a valuable tool for homeschooling success. Sabrina is here today to share ideas about conversational homeschooling. While Sabrina made up the phrase, it fits Sabrina’s style of homeschooling her high schoolers. You will be SO encouraged by Sabrina’s ideas for teaching teens.

What is conversational homeschooling?

Real learning for teens often occurs during conversations. Have you ever noticed that? Moments of true insight will occur during a formal or even, informal chat with your homeschool high schoolers. (Actually, the same thing is true for adults, we bet you have noticed.)

This episode is aimed at:

  • New homeschool high school moms
  • Current homeschool high school moms
  • All homeschool moms, actually

During homeschool high school, moms often become less a teacher and more a resource manager as our teens gain independent learning skills:

These are all important and vital for learning but we sometimes loose some of the fun of homeschooling. However, we can remember that really cool learning happens in discussions.

You may have noticed this yourself. Think about when you have been learning a new hobby or skill; or studying a new topic in Bible study. You will probably have studied and practiced and feel pretty good about what you are learning. However, if you have coffee with a friend and tell her about what you are doing, it will truly cement the information.

Think: Data in, learning starts—learning happens when the data (words) come out!

As teens articulate what they are learning, it becomes much more "theirs"!

Where can I use conversational homeschooling?

There are many situations where conversational homeschooling will increase your teens’ educational success.

Organizing Research Paper Material

The idea of conversational homeschooling is useful for helping teens with their first research papers. Many teens feel overwhelmed by the process. They need help organizing their data and capturing it in a proper research-paper format. Study guides can really help ease them through the process but discussions with mom can be invaluable in helping teens organize their thoughts about what they are learning.

Avoiding Plagiarism

Over the years as many of us 7Sisters have taught research writing in homeschool co-ops and group classes, we have noticed the challenge teens have in organizing their thoughts. Teens who cannot organize their data and thoughts sometimes fall into the problem of plagiarism. They cannot figure out what to say and where and sometimes end up cutting and pasting from a useful website. (Here are some tips to help teens avoid plagiarism.)

Moms can help with this! They can hold check-ins with their teens and allow then to talk about the things they are learning and then talk through outlining their papers. If carried on in a friendly, chatty manner, teens can come away feeling confident in what they have learned and more organized for their writing.

Writing Transition Sentences and Editing Papers

Transitional sentences are needed for MLA research papers and editing skills are needed for all research papers. Help your homeschool high schoolers by holding a conversation about transition sentences and editing. Give them some good examples and

  • Ask, “What makes this a good transition sentence?”
  • Then have them figure it out themselves and tell you what they think.
  • Did you check your paper using your rubric?

Learning about Literature

Another place conversational homeschooling can be useful is in Literature. Try having a conversation with your teen about the characters or themes in the books they are reading. One easy way to facilitate this is to look through their Literature Study Guides and find some inferential questions (questions that do not have a single “right” answer, but instead, ask the student to think things through, perspective take and infer meaning from information given).

Have a discussion together about those inferential questions. This helps teens to truly grow in their critical thinking skills!

Conversational homeschooling for Science or History

  • Ask you teen to explain something that has captured their interest about what they are learning?
  • Or: ask them what was confusing?
  • Ask them what made them want to explore more about the topic?

When is it a good time to practice conversational homeschooling

  • The dinner table, if everyone is sitting around the table together. (Sometimes not so easy for busy teens.)
  • Car rides. It is totally amazing how much teens will chat in the car (if you tell them, no earbuds for this trip). Have some questions in your mind to ask your teens about their various courses.
  • One on one time, anytime.

Be sure to avoid slipping into correcting and criticizing if you see faulty thinking. Instead ask questions such as:

  • Hmmm. Tell me more about that.
  • Interesting thought. What brought you to that conclusion?

Good questions for conversational homeschooling:

  • What is your favorite thing you worked on this week?
  • Or: What surprised or interested you about this?

As teens articulate what they are learning, it becomes much more “theirs”!

Remember: You will never say to yourself: Boy, I am really upset I wasted that fifteen minutes in the car talking with my teen about their research paper.

Also remember: there’s not ONE right way to homeschool high school! Find your own favorite ways to homeschool high school.

Why Studying Science is a Mandatory Life Skill!

Emma is a Cambridge trained physicist, who teaches online Science classes from True North Homeschool Academy.Why Studying Science is a Mandatory Life Skill!

Today, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring, is joined by Emma Cummings. Emma is a Cambridge  trained physicist, who teaches online Science classes from True North Homeschool Academy, while homeschooling her own children in Scotland.

Today, she is sharing with us, 3 Reasons Why Studying Science is a Mandatory Life Skill

Grab our New Year’s Reading Challenge Reading-BingoDownload

  1. It teaches problem solving and critical thinking and logic skills. Students lean both inductive and deductive reasoning from Science study, how to make inferences and the logical conclusions of things. It also teaches excellent communication skills, as the Scientific Method and Lab Reports demand efficient and effective communication.
  2. It awakens science students to the wonder of Creation. Science trains students to notice both the very small, the very large, patterns, anomalies nad more. Throughout this study, Intelligent Design becomes very clear. So many great Scientists have been great men and women of God. Studying Science doesn’t draw people away from God, it draws them to God!
  3. Its FUN! Emma was drawn to science as a young girl because of her love for blowing things up and getting a reaction, and that love dynamic has not changed! She still thinks science is about the most fun a person could have!
