Homeschooling Teen – July 2020

Welcome to the July 2020 issue of Homeschooling Teen magazine! Hope you had a fun 4th of July. We couldn’t even have fireworks!

This month we did something a little different for our Homeschooling Teen Profile, since everyone’s been talking about #BlackLivesMatter. We put together a list of famous black homeschoolers, both past and present, and their positive contributions to society.

In addition, with many campuses still being closed due to the pandemic, we made a list of online colleges and universities. These aren’t traditional colleges that also offer online classes on the side – these institutions of higher learning are totally online only!

If you’re a subscriber you may have noticed that we accidentally posted our face mask article prematurely, and it’s included in this issue.

Alexandria wrote a review of No Saints in Kansas, Grace reviewed “The Breadwinner,” and Ali describes what it’s like to live in a big family with nine siblings.

There are lots of other great articles this month, too, on classic children’s literature, the best homeschool printers, tech for pets, and how to put up a tent, just to name a few.

Here is the Table of Contents (scroll all the way down for the freebie!):
