Episode 53: Homeschool High School Writing: Mom’s Involvement

Overview: Mom’s involvement in her teen’s homeschool high school writing does not have to be scary. Misti Lacy of WriteShop has tips and ideas to help!

During the high school years, our teens are getting more independent. How does that work for writing? How involved does Mom need to be? What about planning, editing, grading, oh my? 

Misti Lacy, the Curriculum Consultant for WriteShop, is a veteran homeschool mom with oodles of years teaching writing both at home and in a co-op setting. She offers much insight into how we can help our teens through the writing process without being too helicopter-y. 

We start off with a discussion about MLA format which we had forgotten to address in the last episode. Don’t make the same mistake I did, LOL!

Plus, Misti and I just had fun conversing with one another, which I think you can hear on this episode. Two veteran homeschool moms sharing from our years of experience. Join us for our chat!
