________________________________ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR __________
by debbie harbeson
> JournalStaff@ihen.org


Welcome to the April issue of "IHEN Journal." The biggest news this
month is that IHEN is going through some structural changes. Just in
time for Spring!

IHEN will no longer be operating on the premise that it will become a
membership organization or member supported. It was decided by the
Organizational List volunteers that what IHEN really offers Hoosier
Homeschoolers is Web-based services that can more efficiently be met
by operating privately as an all volunteer project and accepting
donations to fund those Web services. We want whomever supports what
IHEN does, to simply support it. Hoosier Homeschoolers shouldn't have
to become a member of an organization to support something that serves
them and meets their needs.

This is kind of scary for those of us who have worked so hard over
the years, creatively Helping Hoosiers Homeschool with an e-mail list
and now a Web Site. But we're resolute that this growth spurt can only
make "The IHEN.org Web Project" better.

A membership organization has certain financial constraints on what
can and cannot be done by that organization, and considering these
issues was taking time and energy that could better be used in
actually Helping Hoosiers Homeschool. So IHEN is reorganizing into
the "IHEN.org Web Project," a private project being coordinated and
produced by Peach Grove Press/eMedia (the publisher of our
newsletter) and a volunteer team of homeschooling parents who are
interested in creating online resources for Indiana Homeschoolers.

You may have noticed the April First front page we put up on the site:
> http://www.ihen.org/
It won't be there for long, but we wanted to emphasize the point that
without support from the people who use the results of our work, we
will no longer be able to continue as we are. We hope that we can
continue doing what we've always wanted to do: Help Hoosiers
Homeschool. How long this project continues, of course, if up to YOU.

One other bit of news: This is my last issue as editor of this
newsletter. You may have noticed a want ad floating around, asking
for help editing the "IHEN Journal." Well, we finally got a bite!
Deborah Resnick will be our new "IHEN Journal" editor, starting with
the May issue! I will still be moderating the IndianaHomeschoolers
list and will continue to submit a "list sampler" each month for this
newsletter.

Enjoy this issue.

___________________________________________ JANE'S VIEW __________
by jane casey
> JaneCasey@ihen.org


I had a great experience last week that I'd like to share with all of
you. I had lunch at a very good Italian restaurant with a very nice
reporter. I've talked to reporters before, and the questions tend to
be pretty predicatable: How do you know that they're learning
anything if you don't take tests? Aren't you worried that you'll miss
things? How do you teach Chemistry and Calculus? And what about
SOCIALIZATION?

This reporter asked those questions, but they were mixed in with
questions that showed me that she was beginning to get a picture of
the diverse world of homeschoolers and of the benefits that can
accrue to kids and a family from the lifestyle that is homeschooling.
She recognized that there is a broad spectrum of practice that falls
under the title homeschooling from the radical unschooler to the
textbooks-at-a-desk-raised-hands-school-at-homer and was interested
in learning more about WHY all of these different types stepped out
of the mainstream to educate our kids at home. I'll be talking to her
again this week. And it will be interesting to see how the article
turns out.

I love thinking and talking about homeschooling, that is part of the
reason I started the IndianaHomeschoolers list and started trying to
help pull together a state-wide group that is for all homeschoolers.
As you'll read elsewhere in this newsletter, we have changed the
structure of IHEN. I think that this is a change for the better and I
am greatly looking forward to continuing our efforts to help
homeschoolers in Indiana. I believe we'll be seeing exciting things
happening!

Have a great spring!

_________________________ HOOSIER HOMESCHOOLERS ON-LINE __________
by jessica radtke
> jessradtke@yahoo.com


ONLINE REFERENCES

Welcome to another issue of Hoosier Homeschoolers On-Line! This
month's topic: Online References. Many of my topics for this column
come from searches that I have conducted either with my son or for
myself, and this month is no different. I discovered the sites listed
here while doing some research with my son, who wanted to look up some
information in an encyclopedia. Unfortunately the encyclopedias were
at the library while we were stuck at home for the day, so we turned
once again to the Internet. -jr
_____

> http://www.factmonster.com/
Out of all of the reference sites for children that I looked at, my
son and I found this site to be one of the most interesting and
easiest to use. The layout of the site is very kid-friendly, making
it easy for children to find what they need. It includes a
dictionary, encyclopedia, atlas and almanac. There are also
educational games and quizzes and lots of fun and interesting facts
on many subjects. Beware of all of the flashing ads in the form of
television cartoon characters though. This site has an abundance of
them. If you have not discussed the difference between actual site
content and ads with your child, you might want to address that when
you check out this site.


> http://www.wordcentral.com/
"Word Central" is the Merriam-Webster site designed especially for
kids. I have included it here primarily because of the student
dictionary that is used as the basis for this online version. This
site uses "Merriam-Webster's Intermediate Dictionary." The
"Intermediate Dictionary" was specially edited for the 11-14 year old
age range, but I have found that this version is also more suitable
for younger children than the student dictionaries intended for their
age range. Many of the dictionaries for younger students seem to have
a high concentration of words that the average child already knows.
They are not helpful for looking up unfamiliar words. The
intermediate version includes a broader vocabulary without many of
the slang and off color words that can be found in collegiate and
other dictionaries, so when I ran across an online version, I had to
bookmark it.

There is also more to this Web site than just the online dictionary.
In the "Teachers' Lounge" parents will find helpful articles with
titles such as "Who was Noah Webster?," "How Does a Word Get Into the
Dictionary?" and "A Brief History of the English Language." My one
complaint about this section of the site is that their "Lesson Plans"
area was most definitely lacking. (There was only one entry.)

Some of the activities for children:
* Find out the "Daily Buzzword" (word of the day).
* Create a "vowel monster" or try one of the other "experiments" in
the "Science Lab".
* Build your own dictionary with unusual words.
* Create an encoded message and send it to a friend to decode in the
"Computer Lab."
* Create a poem in the "Music Room."


> http://www.worldalmanacforkids.com/
This is the companion Web site to "The World Almanac for Kids" books.
It features facts on subjects such as the presidents, US history,
space, sports, animals, inventions, and more. Overall I find this
site to be a good starting point, but we almost always go elsewhere
to get in depth information. Some of the subjects on this site have
very little information listed, but I have chosen to include it
primarily because of the animals section. It is by far our favorite
part of this Web site. We often look here first because the
information is concise and easy for distractible young kids to read
through. But what we have enjoyed most are the little tidbits of
information that we have found on here. For instance, when we found
an owl in our barn recently we of course decided to do a search on
owls. While looking on this Web site we found out that many owls have
asymmetrical skulls with ear openings at different levels. Facts like
that often pique my son's interest and will instigate a search for
more information.


> http://www.yourdictionary.com/
This is my personal top pick of the month. This site is impressive!
It includes the typical "look it up" feature of course, but there is
so much more to this site: a multi-language translator, three
different word of the day features (English, Spanish and Chinese),
lists of the 100 most often misspelled and 100 most often
mispronounced words, plus links to online thesauri and other online
dictionaries -- phrase dictionaries, pronunciation dictionaries,
multi-language dictionaries and translators, and dictionaries for
anagrams, synonyms, homophones, rhymes, and more. There are even
links to specialized dictionaries on such subjects as chemistry, art,
biology, construction, cooking, mathematics hydrology, etymology, the
list goes on and on. There are also links to sites dedicated to
ancient writing systems, a section dedicated to endangered languages,
a game area, and (my favorite) a collection of articles on "every
facet of language written by the world's foremost linguists."


> http://www.onlineconversion.com/
This Web site opens with the statement "Welcome to
OnlineConversion.com: convert just about anything to anything else,"
and they mean it! There are conversions for length/distance, speed,
time/date, weight, volume, area, pressure, force, energy, light, etc.
There are also more unique conversions as well: ring and clothing
sizes for different countries, common cooking conversions, wind chill
factor conversions, letter grade to grade point average conversions,
and financial converters/calculators for such things as monthly
payments, savings estimations, currency conversions between 164
different countries, and much more. This is definitely a site to be
bookmarked for future reference.

Next month, more of course! If you have or know of an on-line
resource, or if you own or know of a Web site you would like to
spread the word about in the "Hoosier Homeschoolers On-Line," send

FUEL CELLS

The sun supplies the planet with the original energy source for life
on the planet and hydrogen plays a key role in the sun's energy
production. It takes less than seven minutes for this energy from the
sun to reach life on earth and this energy takes many forms. This
energy arrives in the form of waves of differing wavelengths and
frequency as part of the electromagnetic spectrum
> http://imagers.gsfc.nasa.gov/ems/index.html and as electromagnetic
radiation. The grass is green due to the excitation of the
chlorophyll
> http://scifun.chem.wisc.edu/chemweek/chlrphyl/chlrphyl.html
molecules present in the chloroplast of the plant by the visible
light spectrum.
> http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu/Cyberia/Bima/spectrum.html

Fuel cells are a source of energy produced by humans, but tornados

have a natural energy source.

DISCUSSING WAR WITH CHILDREN
by nhen staff

These are uncertain and frightening times for our families. As wives
and mothers, we, the members of the Board of the National Home
Education Network are acutely aware of the anxiety war creates in our
families, in our communities and, of course, across the globe.
Homeschooling husbands and wives are deployed. Children we've
nurtured and loved have grown into young people who are in harm's
way.

HELP! I'M DROWNING IN MAIL! MY TO-DO LIST NEEDS A SCHEDULE AND
I PUT MY SCHEDULE ON A TO-DO LIST INSIDE A FAQ's LIST ...
SOMEWHERE!

ISN'T THIS GREAT?!!

So, what's up with the ihen.org site? Quite a bit and so much, all at
once it seems, that I really can't list it all. Maybe I could put it
into a FAQ's list.

Let's just say there are so many new things happening on the IHEN.org
site, it wouldn't be a bad idea to check it out once or twice a
week.

The most important thing you may have noticed, is a little April
Fools page we uploaded this month. We have been going through some
changes recently, and we thought it was time we let everyone know
what we're doing with this project, doesn't come cheap. And since you
get what you pay for (or you get what you support) then in a few short
months, this project might have to fade into the internet ether ...
UNLESS ... there are those of you who know a good thing when you see
it, and support it. We're hoping the right people will to the right
thing.

So what IS going on with IHEN? Good question. You might want to ask
it via our new FAQ's Database on the site,
> http://www.ihen.org/faq.htm
but I'll still answer you here.

The volunteers who have been working all these years (yes! years!)
have concluded that there was too much energy and time going into the
concept that IHEN should be a "membership organization." And it became
clear to us (the ones who are paying with time and money) that the
services and support provided by the web site and the
IndianaHomeschoolers list were already Helping Hoosiers Homeschool
(our motto) -- free to the user! Why should someone join something to
get something they already get for free?

"Lack of interest," we thought? No. Plenty of people are interested
in IHEN.org and learning about homeschooling. "What about human
nature?" Ahhhh! There was the rub! After all, isn't everything pretty
much free on the Internet? It's a rule, right?

Wrong. In a way, the volunteers and advisors working on the IHEN.org
Web Project (what we're calling it, by the way) ARE donating a LOT so
you can learn more about homeschooling in Indiana and become more
informed for very little effort on your part! Hundreds of hours a
month and hundreds of dollars have already been spent. So it's still
free as long as you have a browser or a library's browser.

Free, free, free .. to a point.

At some point, probably when you begin to most rely on that web site
being there and think nothing of telling all your friends about it
... the plug will have to be pulled.

We won't be like PBS. We'll actually pull the plug if we don't have
the support. And we aren't into begging. The April front page will
come down soon, and you'll see little donation ads throughout the
site. That's all. The rest is up to you. We're betting you'll do the
right thing and help the IHEN.org Web Project continue to Help
Hoosiers Homeschool. Thanks in advance.


NOW! Here's what is either newly here or on the way from the IHEN.org
Web Project. And these are just off the top of my head and somewhere
on a TO-DO list:

NEW ADVERTISING PROMOTION WITH IHEN JOURNAL AND IHEN.org WEB SITE
Send an e-mail to > RateCard@ihen.org to read all about it.

FREE CLASSIFIED ADS PLACEMENTS ON THE SITE
Thanks to > http://www.bravenet.com/ we are able to add many
functions to our web site! Test out this new feature at
> http://www.ihen.org/advertising/

NEW FAQ's DATABASE
Also a new feature via Bravenet, a FAQ's Database module. Now you can
read and ask whatever questions you want, and we'll answer them via
e-mail and also post them on the web site. You'll find a FAQ button
by scrolling down the Front & Center column on the home page or at
the following link: > http://www.ihen.org/faq.htm

HOMESCHOOLER IN IRAQ -- BECOME A PEN PAL
One of our regular list participants has a son in Iraq. I was touched
by the humility of her request for the thoughts and prayers for her
son, and decided to put up a "Blue Star Flag" for him on the site.
Check it out, and if you know of others who would like to request pen
pals for their soldiers overseas, let them know about this Blue Star
Project.
> http://www.ihen.org/bluestar


Before I go, I need to state the obvious again: Web hosting costs
money. If you are happy with where the IHEN.org Web Project is going,
why not show your pleasure by supporting our effort? We ALL want to
keep Helping Hoosiers Homeschool. > http://www.ihen.org/join/
