This is Sam White. He’s my oldest, my homeschool guinea pig. I made a ton of mistakes with the oldest, but he turned out pretty nicely anyway. (Isn’t God good?)
I think you will really enjoy this 7 minute Homeschooling Documentary Sam created for a video production class in college.
One of the things that worked really well with Sam was encouraging him to have a lot of richness in his high school experience, more than just the expected high school academics. Of course we had to cover those core subjects, but we also colored outside the lines.
Sam did a lot of investigation into various careers in the performing arts. He worked on student film projects with a homeschool cinematography club we formed; he took acting and directing classes and performed in local community theatre productions. He enrolled in drama camp intensives. He read books on film, and watched hours and hours of interviews and “bonus material” on DVD’s of movies that fascinated him. All of that investigation helped him make informed choices after graduation about the best route to take as he now pursues writing, directing and acting for film.
Each of our kids needs the chance to investigate what to do after high school graduation. Vicki’s Career Exploration Workbook is a great tool for helping them do that. If you’re not even sure how to get started helping your child investigate, her workbook makes it easy!
