Today we all know that education is must for everyone but are afraid about the safety of our children due to the increasing number of crimes in Michigan.  Michigan Homeschooling may be the most promising way to give our children a higher level of education while mitigating worries about safety.  As the name implies, with homeschooling programs you may educate your child within an atmosphere that addresses special learning opportunities available in Michigan.  Homeschooling may also offer a self paced study schedule in which the student isn’t forced into their classmates’ pace, required to submit coursework on arbitrary deadlines or complete final examinations. Though powerful vested interests oppose homeschooling, it is also true that parents see the benefits of homeschooling a child.  There are obvious reasons that make homeschooling the best way to teach the values that most parents believe and hold true in Michigan.

Homeschooling provides the best education in moral and religious beliefs for children. Instead of having alternative forms of sexuality thrust upon them by the state-mandated curriculum at the age of seven, parents can introduce these concepts at an age that is more appropriate for the child.  When deciding to educate their child, a big decision and one of the keys concerns that comes to every parent’s mind is whether or not he or she has the ability and knowledge to be a teacher and do the job correctly. But in Michigan, homeschooling parents have the support of over 100,000 other families and over 1,000 support groups and networks that have been set up to assure that parents are successful. In addition, the internet has changed the face of Michigan and homeschooling forever by offering virtual tours, online distance learning programs, educational games and activities that make the Michigan homeschooling dynamic.  Instead of having to settle for the curriculum promoted by lobbyists and special interests homeschoolers may choose from the best and brightest instructional methods in America – or the world for that matter.

Homeschool programs give children more focused education and more individual attention than a school, providing alternative academic time and support through online systems. Furthermore, the Internet can assist busy parents too as children have an entire online library available at their fingertips.  In fact, due to the advances technology there are more tools available than ever to assist parents in the task of providing homeschool education for their children. For those students who live in rural areas, homeschooling is best at providing an efficient learning environment.  Riding a bus for an hour each direction is more a waste of time than anything else. Therefore those students who are homeschooled often have better computer skills than their public school peers. Another benefit that makes homeschooling better than a public school is that it is difficult for a teacher to rotate 25 to 30 students through the use of classroom computers in any timely manner. So now if you are in any confusion about  Michigan homeschooling environment, just consider all the benefits that a homeschool program offers parents and their children as well.

I’m thinking about starting up homeschooling again but I have no idea how to start up again. If anyone could tell me good websites where I can find good homeschooling products or curriculums that would be great because right now i’m not really sure what to do. I’m in 11th grade now and i’m planning on taking a few advanced placement classes (AP english, AP american history, and AP chemistry). Also if possible I would like it to have something with journalism but if not, i’ll live. Thanks to anyone that can help.

Christian Fiction Literature is a rapidly expanding literary field which has developed considerably over the last several years. Originally seen as the “escapist” and “not so serious” little cousin of more serious works on Biblical Theology, Fiction has developed to be so way more than just entertainment. Historians have long recognized that folks learn thru many ways. Reading facts, historic accounts, and most importantly listening to stories. Before writing there were stories, passed from generation to generation. And these stories both entertained, and taught about significant issues such as morals, effects, lessons and history. Prior to radio, tv and the internet, stories were the principle form of entertainment. Whether over the campfire, pantomimes, puppet theatre or Shakespearean sagas, we have appreciated and fallen in love with our storytellers!

In today’s arena of Christian fiction, getting consumers to acknowledge fiction, and how it can both entertain and educate is not a trivial task. This is where pro publicists may be able to assist. A publicist will work in association with the author and the publishing house to help project both the entertainment value of the book, as well as its Biblical and Scriptural worth. Publicists also find it critical to work closely with retailers, helping with the formulation and construction of campaigns that may at last communicate with patrons round the nation. Without the guidance of publicists it is all to straightforward for a retailer to miss the boat and fail to speak the benefit of a book.

We spoke with Rebeca Seitz, publicist and author at GlassRoad Public Relations, who has been liaising directly with the web services team at one progressive retailer’s Christian Fiction group. The retailing organization – deeperShopping Christian Books has created exclusive web content featuring GlassRoad PR’s most recent projects including Sisters Ink Scrapbooking Fiction and Sibella Giorello’s Geologically inspired Thrillers. The retailer and the publicist both agreed that dropping recent releases of Christian Fiction titles into a database isn’t a good way to educate consumers on the benefits of the book. It is their hope that patrons will be able to understand the inducement and the fact that the author wrote the titles – to find out the way in which the author is so electrified by their relationship with the Living God, that they represent that inspiration in the books they create and the stories that they tell.

So just how does one capture the heart of the author when you are explaining and describing their storylines? This isn’t a straightforward task. And as a retailer or a publicist, what weight should be placed on your outline vs the description the actual author would use themselves?

In creating these new web sites, deeperShopping and GlassRoad PR decided to incorporate a number of new Social Networking features. So they added in references to the author’s twitter feeds, flickr photo buckets and their facebook accounts. The result – simply spectacular. Each author has a web portal that features a biography, details of their latest books, and their latest communications from various social networking sites . The retailer even worked out how to integrate YouTube videos into the shopping experience. Now shoppers can get recent info about each workmen latest featured products alongside news from the artists themselves. The project has been a large success and takes retailing to a new level.

Sales in fiction have lifted as a result of this work, in some cases over 200% Due to the extreme success of the project, the retailer was motivated to begin a project to refresh additional content sections of their website and incorporate some of these new technologies and features.

It is our firm opinion that additional members of the Christian Booksellers Association will beging to udnerstand the benefits of social media and will incorporate these features into their retail websites. By 2010 it is expected that this will become standard operating procedure for Christian publishers.

What a tremendously interesting concept!
