Civics Quiz

Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) developed a short civics quiz.  As an educational opportunity, why not give your teen the quiz and see how well he scores?  Answers are provided on ISI’s website.  You may even want to test your civics literacy!  American citizens who have taken the quiz scored only 49%, while college professors did not score much better (55%).

National Challenge on Financial Literacy

The Department of the Treasury is again offering a contest, “National Challenge on Financial Literacy,” to all students. The deadline is December 12 so please act quickly if you are interested in entering the contest.


Homeschoolers are encouraged to participate. In fact, when this contest was offered in May 2008, a homeschooler was one of ten students chosen to be recognized by the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Literacy at its June 18 meeting in Washington, D.C., where they were awarded a college scholarship.

Growing Up Christian

Would you like to see your teen take more of an ownership in his Christian walk?  Growing Up Christian by Karl Graustein is a wonderful book to encourage your teen to realize the blessings of growing up in a home where the Lord is honored.  But, even more importantly, the book also presents a case for challenging your teen to accurately discern whether or not he has personally owned his faith in the Lord, and whether or not he is serious about growing in his faith.  The book is ideal to use in either individual teen/parent discussions or in a group context.
