Bright Kids at Home – www.brightkidsathome.com
A practical website geared towards homeschooling and traveling with
gifted and talented students. It includes many tips and ideas about
gifted homeschooling. There are several pages on identifying and
assessing a gifted student at home. There are pages that have ideas
about high school record keeping and navigating through homeschooling
through the teen years. There are pages that have ideas about traveling
and homeschooling. There are many, many references to excellent book
choices related to the ideas on the pages. The website is current and
periodically updated with what works for this homeschooling family.
Another resource constantly updated and closely related to
www.brightkidsathome.com is their blog called Travelin’ With the Kid
[blog.brightkidsathome.com]. What you’ll find there are the tales of
travels that are part of this families homeschool. Their adventures
abroad, nationally and in their own backyard are described with humor
Also related to the Bright Kids at Home website is a free monthly
newsletter called The Eclectic Telegraph (www.eclectictelegraph.com)
featuring ideas, articles and links to other reading about educating
bright kids and teens at home. Done with humor and blunt observations,
the writing is either very conservative or very liberal – the author
claims that eventually she’ll please or offend -everyone.
All three from a mom who has been homeschooling a highly gifted student
for almost a decade.
