Visit Homeschool LeaderHomeschool Leader HelpHomeschool Leader is a web-based tool for homeschooling parents who would like a tool for tracking subjects, classes, reading lists and, of course, time. It’s a great way for those of us who need to gather this information for reviewers or, in many cases, our own edification.
Because it is web-based Homeschool Leader is only as far away as an internet connection so you don’t have to worry about installing anything on your machine. Signing up is really quick especially if you already have a google account. The setup process will take five minutes at most – before you know it you will be setting up students, sessions and classes.
Homeschool Leader is pretty easy to use but it helps to know some of the terminology we throw around while you’re using the application. Here’s a list of terms we think you should know.
|Family||The main organizational unit – families consists of teachers, students and sessions|
|Student||The student is your homeschooling child.|
|Teacher||The parent is the teacher|
|Session||An organization school unit in which a set of subjects is studied at a particular grade level. Similar to a semester (but that sounded too formal to us).|
|Subject||A categorization for an activity.|
|Activity||This can be a class or a field trip or anything else that is part of your curriculum.|
Armed with that information, Homeschool Leader is designed to be a very easy to use system that takes some of the tedium out of homeschooling and leaves the fun.
