Note from Mike Farris:

For several years I have been using a CD-ROM that contains a wealth
of historical materials. It is an incredibly valuable tool I have
recommended for years.

Recently, I met the people who publish this material. They have now
created a far more comprehensive version of the program online called
originalsources.com. In addition to history and law, they have
original materials in literature, science, and much, much more. The
online version costs $19.99 a year. (The old cd version used to cost
about $70.)

Originalsources will donate half the money generated from people who
sign up for this service at our recommendation, to the PHC
scholarship fund. This excellent, yet inexpensive, resource is a
great way supplement your home school curriculum while helping home
school students with scholarships at Patrick Henry College.

5. Homeschool Heartbeat: Standardized Testing

If you've ever wondered about standardized testing? What makes it
"standardized?" And does it really tell me what my child has learned?
This week on Home School Heartbeat, HSLDA president Mike Smith tells
