Description of 2013-2017 High School 4-Year Planner by Home Educating Family Magazine
Is it a planner? Or a how-to book on homeschooling high school? You’ll have to decide for yourself. For each of the four high school years there is a 44-page planner section; it includes six monthly two-page layouts, a two-page six month calendar, a journal-type semester summary, attendance record, and achievement record for each semester, plus two articles that pertain to planning that year. The layout for each month shows five columns with lined boxes for each day. There’s room to write assignments for six subjects, complete with check-off circle. A sixth column has a character challenge, a monthly summary (e.g. grades, attendance, and activities), and a brief note on future planning. Each month’s pages also include a scripture verse and miniature current and following month’s calendars. The beginning of the book has a sample month, course requirements, a course planning worksheet, transcript requirements, and a sample transcript. The end of the book provides a section on college preparation - a checklist on what to do when, blank high school transcripts, college portfolio worksheet and details, worksheets (college and scholarship considerations), and notes.
As with other planners from Well-Planned Day, color and graphic schemes (different for each year) are inviting and strike a nice balance in appealing to both genders.
