Finishing Strong #26 – Electives

Welcome to Finishing Strong – Our 26th Week!

Finishing Strong ~ Homeschooling the Middle & High School Years #26

This week at Finishing Strong, we are highlighting the non-core subjects – electives.

Electives can be so much fun. They are not only needed for high school transcripts, but they are also a great way for older students to learn more about subjects that interest them. By going beyond math and language arts, teens can gain a lot of insight into their passions and may even get a glimpse into what they’d like their future to look like.

Do you write about homeschooling the older grades? Make sure to share your posts with us below.
