       Whether you’re a hobbyist in fine lettering, wanting to learn more about the medieval art form of illuminating letters, or hoping to de-stress from the hustle of modern day in ancient creativity, this beautiful little workbook is the key. Each page consists of faint, soft blue graph paper to help you practice and learn illumination with little step-by-step drawing tutorials and illuminating techniques along the way. There are also blank letterforms to get you started from “A” to “Z” as you progress through the pages, just add a mystical creature here, some swirling vine and arabesque motifs there, fill-in the letter with a beautiful base color, then add some detailed accents with a white gel pen, and voilá, you’re an illuminator! You’ll find full-color samples of illuminated letters sprinkled amongst the pages of the practice book to give ideas and inspiration. 160 pgs, 6.25” x 8.25” hc. ~ Emily

    Republic or Democracy? What is the foundation of America? Does it really matter? If you follow any current media outlets, you quickly notice that America is described with either of these terms or sometimes these terms are used interchangeably. But do they mean the same thing? With an overview of defining terms while revisiting the writings of American founders, this book presents an understandable interpretation of the purpose and benefit of a republican form of government. Intermingled are quotations from our founding fathers, and an extensive look at the writings of John Adams. This is a perfect resource to introduce high schoolers and parents to the ancient ideas and principles behind the republican form of government. Learn why the founders of the United States used their unique opportunity to choose a republic form of government for themselves and their prosperity. 110 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    The easy to follow Teacher's Guide is written directly to the teacher. If you feel a bit intimidated teaching literature, this guide, although not scripted, will provide what you'll need to aid your student. Four pages of the TG provide an overview of the key topics covered each month. Answers for all student work and detailed responses to discussion questions, along with where to locate these answers in the literature, are provided. Grading and evaluation are straightforward and fairly simple. The overall course grade is comprised of 3 components: the Grading Grid score, a vocabulary grade and activity grade for each book. The teacher will use the reproducible Grading Grid to evaluate the student's work. With this measuring tool, students are graded on 7 tasks. For five of the tasks, teachers evaluate only the student's level of completion/involvement in certain tasks. The final two evaluations are comprised of the Yes, I Read It (reading comprehension) and Literary Terms quiz grades. At the end of each chapter, students choose from various multiple-learning-style activities that expand on and respond to literary themes: mapping, writing music, reenacting, history, imitating, responding to author or characters, etc. The TG provides brief suggestions and guidance for these activities. However, the teacher will decide how activities are evaluated. 8.5" x 11" 182 pp, sc.

    The Quiz and Answer Manual is designed for those who prefer their students take quizzes and surveys on paper rather than online. For group classes, the author recommends completing quizzes, etc., by following online links through the publisher's website (link included in texts). It contains all quizzes and answers for each literature book studied: Yes, I Read It quiz, Literary Terms quiz, and Opinion Surveys. Each quiz utilizes a form of multiple choice. Don't let the term "survey" make you think these are optional. These encourage students to apply what they've read to their own situation with multiple choice and also some written "response to literature" questions. Permission to copy for personal use. 8.5" x 11", 101 pp, sc. If you select the free Online Quiz option (for the Yes I read It and Literary Term quizzes and Opinion Surveys) answers are graded automatically. For each quiz, students will receive an emailed report including the questions with their original answers, the correct answers and their final quiz score. The online quizzing and online grading option is interesting. Many colleges incorporate some online course component, so this would be a way to introduce your homeschooler to this method without a costly investment.

    The Student Text is fairly self-directed, written as a conversation to the student. Students are guided, step by step through learning about and responding to their reading. Each chapter covers one book in 6-9 lessons. The lessons combine instruction and workbook into one format so that students respond to questions as students read through the text. As they complete their study of the literature, students must evaluate the conflict "colliding worlds" (man vs. man; man vs. ideas, etc.) involved, complete the quizzes and survey, take a vocabulary "quizzola," and complete the final, culminating activity. An "If You Liked This Book" section includes a list of additional readings. 8.5" x 11" 285 pp, sc.
