Checklist and Links for High School Graduation

Checklist and Links for High School Graduation
(This article was last updated on 1/11/13. For continued updates, please sign up for my free monthly newsletter.) I've been compiling a list of links to free resources on the web that I use myself or that have been recommended. As I'm sure you all know, buying curriculum, especially at the high school level, can amount to hundreds of dollars per course. I try to mix and match as much as possible, carefully picking and choosing what I buy, and using free material if I can find it. Fortunately, "free" does not mean you have to compromise on quality. I thought I would share what I have to try to cut down on the time we all spend searching. First, some links to sites that offer free material in a wide array of core and elective subjects. For a list of 150 free textbooks, click here. The Wake County Public School System has a series of online video lessons called the "Success Series," which provides a review of most of the core subjects and foreign language.

UC College Prep Open Access Homeschooling Books - Supplies, Curriculum, & Textbooks for Christian Home Schooling Exploring open access in higher education | Higher Education Network Open access is using internet technology to facilitate teaching, learning and research the world over. Photograph: ESA/J.Huart/PA From the use of social media to engage students to tools designed to facilitate record keeping in HE, it would seem the academic revolution will be digitised. But arguably no other aspect of digital holds the promise of the open access (OA) philosophy and open educational resources (OER). With OER, similar tenets apply: academics create, share and allow their teaching resources not only to be used but to be amended, improved, transformed. It also looks as though the benefits of open access in HE could go beyond teaching and research. So far, so good. Following a talk point and a poll, we finally give the subject of open access the consideration it deserves. Join us then and feel free to post any questions or comments below now.
