My fingers are kind of tingling as I type this post, because I haven't been this excited about site news in a while.
Thanks to feedback from you wonderful members, we're adding a brand new forum section
to SecularHomeschool.com. It's called "From Soup to Nuts
" (if you aren't familiar with that fun idiom, check it out on Wikipedia
), and the idea behind it is to create some in-depth discussions on a wide variety of topics of interest to secular homeschoolers.
Sometimes, we'll be featuring guest posters with a particular background or passion in a specific subject. Other times, we'll pull apart a news story or trending topic and look at it from every angle. But either way, From Soup to Nuts
will be a single weekly featured thread on SHS that will let us explore a specific subject in-depth with our famous talent for creating dynamic discussion. And even cooler - - when we have a featured guest poster - - that person will stick around for the entirety of the week to answer questions and engage in the conversation.
Just a couple things to note about this new forum section.
1) It will open next Monday, May 18 and will feature our first guest poster, Karen Lock Kolp, who is homeschooling while dealing with chronic illness. (For more about Karen's story, read this piece
from Bay State Parent.)
2) It will not be an "open" forum in the sense that only admins and guest posters will be able to create new threads - - but ANYONE can participate in the featured discussions.
