Homeschool High School English Credit: What’s Included?

We often get asked about language arts/English credits for the homeschool high school transcript. It is a HUGE credit each year.

We know it seems unfair that such a huge number of factors go into a high school Language Arts credit, but that’s the way it is. (Maybe it helps our teens learn about dealing with the unfairness of life with acceptance and grace?)
