My question: how do we school at home, freely and unobstructed, and still come away with legitimate "credits" that are acceptable at any college? My Kid wants to go to film school as soon as he can, so we need good solid proof of learning and credit that will get him in.
I read somewhere that if one "unschools" then giving your child credits is "opening a whole can of worms" that needs to stay closed. Thing is, I want to do what I can -- tracking his progress and learning and skills -- in the best manner for him. So he can go to film school or do whatever he wants to accomplish in life.
Plans to take in "high school" years (plans, but may not necessarily take them all):
-brush-up on essentials
-Physical (chemistry, etc)
-Botany with Therapeutic Herbalism
-U.S. Government / Constitution / Civics
-create his own language (HELP!)
-Greek and Latin
-writing (to include a fiction series, movie script, etc)
-analysis of literature
-write a movie script
-movie making/file producing
-home ec (cooking, nutrition, sewing, etc.)
-handling criticism, problem solving, etc
(1) how do I track his learning and progress and skills so that it translates into a transcript and credits for him?
(2) how do I make his high school years full of learning but make it a whole lot more fun than the last few years have been?
