Question by horsegaiter3: 11th grade home-school in wisconsin.?
I just got into homeschooling but I’m not sure where to start. Do I have to be in some online course or have certain books? How am I suppose to learn the subjects? Unfortunately my mother only filled out the forms and really doesn’t know what to do. Any help would be appreciated(:

Hi! I would recommend that you join a local homeschooling group where you can get support from knowledgeable people in your area. The website for the statewide homeschool association in Wisconsin is http://www.wisconsinchea.com/ From there, you can find links to contact people in your area, as well as a host of other information. People in homeschooling groups are usually friendly, and there are usually a lot of good things offered, such as field trips and co-op classes (where one person teaches, say, Spanish, to the kids of several homeschoolers whose moms don’t know how to teach it).

As far as having certain books or joining an online course, there is a lot of flexibility regarding which curriculum you study, but you do want to make sure that your schooling for the year would line up with a traditional high school curriculum (number of credits, types of courses, etc.)

All the best to you!

I can’t decide if I love this house or if I hate it. Pasting from the real estate listing:

Versatile design w/ option for expansion/change. Upstairs family room was 2 additional bedrooms and can easily be restored back. Set high on a knoll, 3/4 acre wooded/private lot in area of more expensive homes. Deep 1 car garage w/ loft has heater. Neighborhood pool, Estabrook school, Lexpress @ driveway.

I like the design, but it looks like it would be hard to make any changes without ruining the character of it. I like the setting (no lawn to mow!) but I don’t like that it’s about 100 meters from a major Interstate highway. I like that it’s cheaper than other houses in the neighborhood, but that isn’t saying much (and, bleh, suburbs).

Pasting from the Wikipedia entry on Carl Koch:

[start-quote]

Carl Koch ( May 11, 1912- 03 July 3, 1998) was a noted American architect. He was most associated with the design of prefabricated homes and development of the Techcrete building system.

Education

He was born Albert Carl Koch in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was educated at Harvard College and received his Master of Architecture degree from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He completed his studies in 1937. The time he spent at Harvard overlapped with arrival of Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus in Germany.[1]

Career

After completing his education, he moved to Sweden where he worked for Sven Markelius for six months.[2] There he blended what he had learned in his formal education with clean Scandinavian design. These influences were evident in his work, especially the Techbuilt homes.

Work

Koch believed that the American lifestyle would be best served by a housing system which could be easily assembled, disassembled and reconfigured. This passion led him to pioneer prefabrication technologies. His Techbuilt series of homes was designed to be built with prefabricated panels for the walls, floor and roof. [3]

Buildings

His prime legacy is the Techbuilt system of home construction. In the Techbuilt house, the master bedroom is upstairs while the other bedrooms, kitchen and living space are all on the first floor. [4]

Projects

• Snake Hill, Massachusetts group of eight houses (1942) [5]
Acorn House (1948)
• Staff housing for the US Embassy, Belgrade (1956)
The Techcrete Academy Homes (1962)
Eliot House, Mount Holyoke College (1962)

Legacy

Carl Koch is known for his successful early designs for prefabricated housing. He created the Techbuilt System of home construction. Progressive Architecture magazine gave him the unofficial title "The Grandfather of Prefab" in 1994. [6] In total, over 3,000 Techbuilt homes were sold. [7] He outlined his thoughts and experiences on prefabrication in a book which he wrote with Andy Lewis entitled At Home With Tomorrow (NYC: Rinehart Rinehart and Company, Inc., 1958.)[8]

Awards

• First Award American Institute of Architects (1954)
