High School Homeschooling for "Creative Entrepreneurs"
By Sarah Janisse Brown
"This is a collection of Thinking Tree Books I enjoy using with my business-minded teens... For my children, these books, are used along with a selection of Books from Blue Stocking Press and Answers in Genisis. All together this selection is enough to create a complete curriculum that covers American History, World History, Economics, Geography, Business, Career Planning, Language Arts, Business Math, Political Science, Biblical World View, Creation Science, Skill Development and Home Economics."
"Besides introducing my teens to the important books, we also develop an individual career training plan for each child, starting around age 13. They usually choose a career path around their 13th birthday and we begin to invest in the tools, experience, education, and skill development needed to help the child build a business that will be thriving by the time they graduate from our home. They often change career paths between ages 13 and 18, but along the way they build wonderful skills!"
All Thinking Tree books use a Dyslexia-friendly font to help students with Dyslexia and letter confusion.
