    There are 26 chapters and 7 review tests (each covering 2-4 chapters.) Each chapter begins with a little history about the composer, location and the world around them. Then you learn the musical concept and listen to tracks (either on the CD or from the teacher playing the piece shown in the book). You will learn about the piece you are studying and some history of the musical era. A "Facts to Remember" at the end of each lesson is helpful for studying, and then you listen to the pieces again. Each review test has a listening portion. A music teacher can play these, while others may use the audio CD. You really only need the beginning of the piece for the review tests. Tests (and answers) are in the back and are not reproducible. The answer key pages easily remove to keep as the instructor.

    A very rigorous and complete 1-year course in grammar (parts of speech, word functions, punctuation, sentence structure and patterns).  Now reprinted by Master Books, each lesson features plenty of white space and the front of the book contains a “Suggested Daily Schedule” with assignments listed for five days per week. Lessons are 1-2 pages of reading followed by 1-2 pages of exericises for practice. Fifteen tests are also provided, with an A and B form for each in case any tests need to be retaken. These are scheduled throughout the year, though not at regular intervals. Although designed to be self-instructional, particularly when used with the DVD (as is assumed in the schedule), some teacher help may be required.  This book would be an excellent follow-up to Easy Grammar or Journey to Grammar Land, as it covers grammar at a college level!  Answer keys to exercises and tests are found in the back of the book. Perfect-bound, 3-hole punched with perforated pages. Reproducible for one family or a small class (10 students or less).

    The Teacher Guides provide everything the teacher needs for her part in the teacher-student interaction that is the foundation of this program. While marginally helpful in many spelling programs, the TGs are the core of this one. The General Lesson overview and Sample Lesson Plan found in the beginning are just a prelude to comprehensive daily lessons. With reduced copies of the Student Book, teacher info is "around the edges." After a brief introduction which reviews the Phonics Focus, each of the 34 detailed weekly lesson plans includes a Teaching Overview, Definitions, Word Study Questions, Activities, Dictation, Guided Student Work [teacher-student activities such as spelling riddles, word equations (i.e. king k + s = _______), and missing sound words] and a Test. There is variety in most of these activities/work, but two tasks are consistent through each lesson. Colorful Letters requires the student to write (in pencil) words with "bullets" between syllables and then go back and write over vowels/vowel teams in red and consonant teams/blends with blue and slash through silent e. Dictation is the other important part with one day devoted to various aspects: writing letter or letter teams that spell a sound, writing spelling words, and writing a sentence from an informative paragraph included in the student books that features a number of the week's words. The appendix includes a reproducible weekly spelling test form, spelling review games, spelling rules reference sheets, a list of common English contractions, a phonics overview for the teacher, and (the important) Colorful Keys answer key.

    I've been waiting for this book for awhile – and I suspect there are others waiting right there with me. History of the Ancient World gave us a sequel to Story of the World for older readers but left us with the need to design our own curriculum and study materials. This is so much better! Now History of the Ancient World can function as a stand-alone high school (or middle school if your child is ready) history/geography course.

    There is a set of exercises for each chapter. Some sections – Who, What, Where and Comprehension – are answered in one or two complete sentences and can be done "open-book." The Critical Thinking section (not done open book) requires the student to produce a brief written reflection on the ideas presented in the chapter. The student is helped in this by preliminary exercises. The fourth section – Map Work (not included with every chapter) – asks the student to go through a carefully structured set of steps – tracing repeatedly, then copying while looking at the book, and finally, reproducing from memory. [All needed maps are provided in the back of the book. Map Work will require black pencils, colored pencils, and large amounts of tracing paper.]

    The set of 85 worksheets (reproducible for families) are in the back third of the book. The front third? Well, I guess you would call it the answer key, but it feels like more. Each item/question to be identified or answered is specifically referenced to the text (by page and paragraph number). Sample answers are given for each item including the essay questions. That's it! There are no lesson plans or additional information or teacher helps - just what you need to provide a strong history course. Although there are no quarterly or final tests, these would be easy to compile based on the information provided here. 533 pgs, pb. Medieval – 832 pgs, pb ~ Janice

     Concluding with the profound observation, America is a great nation and people are needed to practice, protect and promote economic liberty, this course introduces students to the history of economic thought, and modern economic issues currently facing America, before family economics, entrepreneurship and power of education are explored.

      One semester in length, the full course kit contains 3 Texts, 3 Activity books and the Teacher’s Resource Kit (TRK), along with the TRK digital download.  Designed for independent study, each text, called a chapter, cover fifteen topics.  Each text contains the lesson reading, bold vocabulary words with definitions in a vocabulary “box” on the page, life principle quotes and video clips via a QRC codes. Corresponding activity books provide questions for each topic. Questions are fill in the blank and matching, with lines to write the life principle.

    The Teacher’s Resource Kit includes black line masters for section quizzes (9), chapter tests (3), quiz and chapter test answer keys, activity answer keys, and the table of contents. Black line masters are reproducible for classroom use.

      Chapter 1 introduces students to economics as the engine by which capitalism, free enterprise, private property and the relationship between employees, employers, and entrepreneurs create jobs. Additionally, this chapter also explores government regulation, supply and demand, and economic factors such as taking risks, investments and profit and loss. The evolution of economic precepts and principles, from ancient Greece, Rome, Europe and the Dark Ages are explored. Historical persons that shaped modern economic theory are presented including Moses, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, William Penn, Winston Churchill, Margret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan. This chapter also delves into the Industrial Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the Cold War, and their impact on economics. Worth mentioning, the impact of an economy based on Biblical principles is discussed for its historical value and includes a look at Marxism and Darwinian theory. Chapter 2 further explores the history of the Judeo-Christian and European influences that were foundational to the capitalism in the United States. The authors compare the historical teachings of Catholic and Ana-Baptist beliefs and provide a brief overview of the Protestant reformation and the influences of the Church on economic philosophy. This is done neutrally with no scripture verse support or proselytizing noted.  An in-depth look is given to the economic significance of the US Constitution, Mayflower Compact and the Bill of Rights. Students will briefly examine the impact of the industry, railroads, progressive education, unions, the New Deal, welfare, immigration, private organizations and “trickle-down economics.” Chapter 3 reviews contemporary economic issues including banking, creditors, credit cards, checking accounts, debt, impulse buying, mortgages, dividends, stock market, collateral, loans, bankruptcies, insurance, real estate, gross and net income, inflation, IRAs and 401Ks, tax audits, and much more.  Students are also introduced to the pros and cons of starting and operating a small business, along with post high school options: college, trade school, and military.

      A captivating look at the foundations of economic philosophy that will appeal to students-especially those without a desire to study the math and deeper theories of economic thought. All texts and activity books are softcover. ~Deanne

    The Teacher Guide is a very important part of this program. You will find a course schedule, worksheets for each lesson, answer keys (a mix of answers and solutions), quizzes, and tests. Also included in the worksheets are math problems from historical text books, such as Applied Mathematics for Junior High Schools and High Schools and Secondary Arithmetic: Commercial and Industrial for High, Industrial, Commercial, Normal Schools, and Academics and Practical Algebra: First Year Course. These problems help students understand the role of math throughout history, but they are also good thinking math problems. There are two versions of the schedule – two-year and one-year. The two-year schedule is basically one lesson per day using both books to equal two years of junior high math. If you have a student who is really motivated and wants to finish both books in one year, there is a schedule for that. In this option, students complete about 2 to 3 lessons per day – depending on the length. The Student Workbook is consumable (not reproducible); pages are perforated with plenty of space for students to show their work and answer questions.

    This guide by Matt Whitling provides instruction for teaching ten of Shakespeare's most famous plays including Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and Much Ado about Nothing. The instruction is based off and requires a copy of Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb, a readable adaptation of the plays for younger students (listed below). Though the teaching tips are meant for larger classes, the worksheets and test provided are great for homeschoolers. A similar two-page worksheet is provided for each of the ten plays. Students are instructed to record statistics (like plot type, setting, etc.), describe the attributes and roles of characters, summarize the plot, sketch a memorable scene, define vocabulary, and answer comprehension questions. Answers are included. A four-page exam tests all ten of the plays. Most of the questions are short-answer questions, with a few matching. A review sheet is given before the exam for study. An answer key is also provided for the final exam. The back of the book includes Venn diagrams showing how Shakespeare's comedies and tragedies have overlapping themes. Overall, this guide provides great review of Shakespeare's plays and requires minimal effort from teachers. Reproducible, spiral bound, 50 pages. ~ Rachel

    This practical and unique guide/workbook really does what it says and gives "writing strategies that are as easy as 1-2-3." It uses the theme of three to help students remember good writing techniques. It starts by pointing out the power of three and how it is used in everything from childhood stories to famous speeches to learning strategies and shows how using sets of three in your writing will make it stronger. It also gives guidelines for different aspects of writing, all with just three rules to remember for each aspect of an essay or paper. A few of the topics covered are three steps for brainstorming, three "p's" of a thesis statement, three parts of an essay, three ways to connect paragraphs and sentences, three ways to support topic sentences, three ways to hook the reader in the introduction, three phases of completing a timed writing assignment, and much more. Instruction is conversational, with interesting quotes thrown in to keeps things interesting. Students can either work their way through the book, as it somewhat builds upon itself, or simply pick out particular sections based on their immediate need. The guidelines and examples are great, especially for students who have a tough time remembering good writing techniques and would benefit from a more formulaic writing method. This book doesn't just give guidelines and examples, though; after most informative segments are short but effective "Do It Now" sections that give students practice with the skill or method just taught. Exercises include fill-in-the-blanks, identifying more powerful writing from weaker, and of course writing specific sentences or paragraphs based on the guidelines. Overall, this is a great resource for providing easy-to-remember tools and tips to equip students for essay or composition writing, be it a long-term paper, a short essay, a timed writing exam, or anything in the middle. An "Extras" section in the back of the book gives specific tips for students who are taking a timed writing test for a state mandated test or the SAT. Additional planning sheets and examples are given for this purpose. Consumable, but reproducible. 106 pgs, pb, answer key included. - Rachel

    “A practical plan for school success” is the subtitle of this workbook, and that’s exactly what it is!

     The teacher manual is now a 3-ring binder that includes the content of the former teacher cd-rom. The teacher binder is split between an introduction to the course and lesson plans. The introduction describes the advantages of Bible survey, the course purpose, methods used, teaching tips, lesson objectives, one- and two-year lesson schedule (70 lessons), and a memory verse program. Lessons include teaching tips and suggestions for discussion topics, activities, games, projects, small-format student pages with answers, and questions for enhancing lessons. Some lesson suggestions are for groups or classrooms only, but most will work well in a homeschool setting. In the back are reproducible tests and answers - twelve unit tests and two semester exams. Some of the information found in the teacher manual isn’t found in the student book, but may be included on tests.

    Learning the keyboard is imperative for today's student. Take your typing course to the next level with this 34-week course. Weekly lessons follow a similar format: a classroom or group lesson (parents can read through this lesson with their children) and four daily practice lessons. Practice lessons have the student review the material from the group lesson in daily increments followed by 10-20 minutes of typing practice per day. The author recommends a simple text editor like Microsoft Notepad®, Microsoft Wordpad® or Apple Textedit® (free with your computer operating system) for practice. These programs do not include spell checkers or auto correct features that will cover mistakes and prevent the student from learning correctly.

    The first weekly lesson in the textbook is critical to success. Covering the differences between typing and keyboarding, various keys, the QWERTY keyboard, correct typing posture along and more, the first week ends with a baseline 3-minute typing test. I appreciate the focus on correct hand position and sitting posture as a preventative measure against carpal tunnel syndrome. Lessons cover nearly every aspect of the computer keyboard. Here is just a sample of the skills learned: the space bar and enter key; home row, the letter keys, punctuation and special keys, shift key/caps lock key, practice with typing common words including articles, conjunctions, helping verbs, pronouns and prepositions, learning to use the numeric key pad, tabs/text alignment, typing a friendly letter or business letter, making a certificate of completion plus many others. Complete table of contents is available on our website. Keyboard shortcuts are covered in the appendix. Each lesson focuses on 3-4 letters before advancing to more complicated keys and skills which allows for mastery of material. Students needing more practice can review the practice lessons as necessary, as the suggested practice time is flexible to meet individual student needs.

    A timed typing test is included with every even-numbered lesson to assess student progress. Timed tests begin as one minute tests and progress in length to five minutes by the end of the course. A keyboarding speed progress chart is available at the back of the book to measure progress.

    You may wonder how this course compares to the author's Keyboarding for Homeschoolers -Summer Text? The complete content (13 lessons) from the Summer Text are repeated in this course. Additionally, this course provides more instruction on various special keys like the colon, apostrophe, question marks, brackets, tab key and text alignment, along with additional practice typing commonly used suffixes, helping verbs, pronouns, and prepositions and typing a friendly or business letter. This one year course provides more depth and practice, although some students may do well with a quick summer overview followed by time spent teaching themselves the additional keys and skills for keyboarding aptitude.

    All in all, this is a fully developed, systematic typing course that will provide your high schooler an elective credit on his transcript. It is worth mentioning that the course focuses on memorization of the keyboard through practice on a covered keyboard. A mini-keyboard with color-coded keys is a recommended resource and the author has included a reproducible copy in the textbook. Unfortunately, the color-coded keys are not well distinguished in the black and white graphic. I would recommend printing a keyboard with color-coded keys (coded for finger use) from the internet rather than using the included graphic. Whether college or workforce bound, keyboarding is a valuable skill that our young people need for success and this well-organized, easy to use course may provide them everything necessary for success.

    ADHD is the most common behavior disorder that affects children ages 5-18, and I suspect it is also the most understood. Struggling to understand the behavior and emotions directly impacts parents, teachers, friends and especially the suffering child. Unfortunately for the child, the need to fit in' a school setting or other social group creates untold anxiety and feelings of inadequacy, which lead to a poor self-esteem and acting out behaviors in the teen years.

    As parents and teachers, we want to come alongside our young people and help them recognize that yes, they are different than other children but it does not have to have a negative impact on their lives. Written to support teachers and parents, this book provides a variety of activities to help children with ADHD appreciate the positive traits of ADHD, their unique positive character traits, and master social skills. Chapters include Understanding ADHD, Learning despite ADHD, Coping in Relationships and Celebrating ADHD, with a look at successful adults with ADHD. Includes a variety of activities many which require at least one more participant. Pre-and Post-Test is included, along with a completion certificate. Reproducible for classroom/family use.

    The word 'Algebra' can strike fear into the hearts of many, but Critical Thinking Press has done their part to calm your math nerves and prepare students for higher level math in Understanding Algebra. The newest member of the Mathematical Reasoning line is a full one year algebra course for students at the junior high and high school level in a consumable format.

    The information in this worktext is a user-friendly format and presented in a step-by-step fashion. The text makes a connection between the arithmetic of the elementary years to the algebra they need to succeed in high school math. Twelve chapters begin with the basics and build upon each other Our number system, Evaluating Expressions and Solving Equations, From Words to Algebra/Translating and Solving Word Problems, From Words to Algebra/More Word Problems, Inequalities, Polynomials, Factoring, Working with Radicals, Linear Functions, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, Other Types of Functions, and Working with Algebraic Fractions.

    The author begins the book with a simple explanation of "What is Algebra," and then jumps right in. Each chapter is 20 to 30 pages in length and broken into topics. Each topic or lesson offers the student explanations and examples in a very visual fashion. Colored charts, illustrations, and graphs are incorporated for clarity of explanations. Within the lessons, students will be asked questions to assure they know the concept being presented and a 'more practice' section rounds out the lesson. Sets of 'Enrichment Problems' are scattered throughout the chapters to offer additional practice in higher-order thinking using plenty of word problems. There are no chapter tests in this book, so you would need to assess your student's understanding of the concepts by other means grades from the practice sets and exercises might be your best tool for assessment.

    New for the 2017 edition are chapter reviews covering and a final exam.

    A glossary that includes algebra vocabulary and an answer key are found at the back of the book. These are answers and not solutions. A helpful reference page is included. Students will learn about the history of math as they learn math strategies to help them with algebra and beyond. 378 pgs. pb. Reproducible for home and single classroom use. ~ Donna
