As the number of homeschoolers continues to increase, professionals who work with homeschoolers seeking higher education need to develop a plan to recruit, assess, and assimilate these particularly motivated, thoughtful, creative students. Combining her professional experience with insights gathered from surveys of US colleges and universities, author Lori Dunlap of TeachYourOwn.org provides the information you need to more fully understand this population, along with strategies and approaches for easily and effectively connecting with, engaging, and assessing these non-traditional students. Lori also helps homeschooling families discover what admissions professionals are looking for in their ideal applicant, better preparing them for the college application process and working with the admissions professionals at their chosen schools.
Available in print at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and for Kindle and Nook. See below for international availability through Amazon! More help and insight can be found in our other books from the Perspectives In Gifted Homeschooling Series and More GHF Press Titles.
