The Hennepin County Libraries currently purchases three homeschooling magazines for you to check out: Home Education Magazine, Homeschooling Today Magazine and Practical Homeschooling Magazine.
Home Education Magazine is still owned and published by founders Mark and Helen Hegener and their third-generation homeschooling family. In 1983 they began publishing Home Education Magazine for homeschooling families across the country, and now, over twenty-five years later, HEM is respected as the premier magazine in the field of homeschooling publications, described as “informative and commonsense” by Library Journal’s Magazines for Libraries and “highly recommended” by EBSCO’s Librarian’s Handbook. Professional recognition includes: Forbes Best Homeschooling Site, Parents’ Choice Recommended Magazine, American Homeschool Association Recommended Homeschooling Magazine, Parents’ Choice Gold, and many other awards.
Homeschooling Today The work of Homeschooling Today magazine is focused and specific. Their commitment to bring the homeschool community useful information and resources is supported by a Biblical conviction that God uses families to change the world.
Practical Homeschooling Magazine features an exclusive annual Reader Awards® and i-Learn Awards® (for interactive learning products), Day at Our House” Diaries to see how other families do it and in-depth reports that tell you what you need to know… but didn’t know enough to ask. Some recent examples: the truth about “Common Standards,” the 31 things homeschoolers should know (but don’t) about college, the simple summer trick that gives lower-income students the academic results of higher-income students, how to prepare for a vo-tech career, lots more!
