      This book contains a group of texts organized around a common topic. A main or “anchor” text introduces the topic, then the other texts in each set relate to the topic in some way (using a variety of genres). For example, Text 6 asks the question, “Why Explore Space?” There are a couple of video transcript articles, an opinion article, an online article and an editorial. Finally, there is a graphic organizer at the end of each text set, which students can use to organize their opinions and discussion. Each topic encourages students to examine and compare information, and thought-provoking questions are located at the end of each document to increase critical thinking skills. The book is divided into three thematic sections: Kids and School, Current Events, and Historical Events. Activity suggestions are also included to help students see things from different points of view. Because comparative reading is an important skill and emphasized in the Common Core State Standards, this book will help students practice reading a variety of nonfiction texts and use text evidence to answer higher-level questions. A Common Core correlation chart is also listed in the front of the book. ~ Gina

    The ultimate course in digital literacy! The goal of this online course is to help middle-to-high-school students develop a foundational understanding of hardware, software, file management, Internet safety, and more. The course is divided into two semesters (about 33 weeks) of material; the first covers basic concepts, including an introduction to types of hardware, software, and popular programs like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Google Docs, and more. The second semester delves into more hands-on topics which include social media programs, basic internet utilities, designing web pages, and creating simple programs.

    At the heart of the course is a simple online interface which tracks student progress and helps organize teachers. Upon purchase, you will receive one pair of teacher/student coupon codes, which you can then activate on CompuScholar (please note that one-year subscriptions start when course is activated).  The student has access to several tools for each lesson: Lesson Video, Text, and Quiz. The videos are key to understanding topics and are both animated and narrated to help both visual learners and students learning English as a second language. The automated quizzes ensure students have a good grasp of each concept before moving on and are automatically scored for every student and sent to the teacher for review. Teachers likewise have access to a Teacher Guide, a Quiz Answer Key, and Activity Solution Guides Files, in addition to syllabi, activity overviews, and chapter walkthroughs. These resources are provided at the teacher's leisure; each can be used by itself, left alone if deemed unnecessary, or integrated with the teacher's own supplementary material.

    The full range of topics covered includes: Fundamentals of Computer Hardware / Software, Operating Systems, Computer Files, Computer Maintenance and Troubleshooting, Computer Networks, Search Engines, Computer Security, Word Processing, Spreadsheet Programs, Presentation Programs, Database Technology, Project Management, Digital Images, Internet Communications, Social Media, Creating Web Pages, Programming Concepts, Digital Logic, and Careers and Professional Skills.

    The course caters to group teaching as well; the online software allows teachers to track each student's scores and progress individually. The program is also age-friendly, allowing multiple students of different middle-and-high-school ages to work together as one class. In addition, it is a moderately fast-paced coursethe stated average workload amounts to roughly 3-5 hours of work per week over 33 weeks, but if this is too rigorous for students or you have younger kids in the class, the course is designed to be self-paced. If you are looking for a full-blown course on digital literacy that caters to a wide range of students, this is certainly one of the best! System requirements: Windows 7/8/10 or Mac OS 10.7 or higher. ~ Stephen

    Note: Requires a laptop or desktop with an internet connection and Microsoft Office (latest version recommended).

    Apologia now offers video instruction DVDs for all upper-level courses. Author Sherri Seligson is your host for Biology as you work through the course. The lecture instruction closely follows the text, with lectures broken down by text section. Presented in a slideshow fashion, students will see information or illustrations and hear the author as she explains that particular concept. DVD also features some exciting footage from all over the world, with examples of the organisms being studied. Video presentations of every experiment from the textbook are also included. Although the video demonstrations do not replace actually doing the experiments, it is a very helpful resource for those who are a little less sure of what they are doing in their home laboratories. Module notes are available in PDF format at the beginning of each module and contain all math problems from the lectures. The student will print them and fill them out as they are discussed in the lecture. A suggestion for planning your lessons for a 10-day period is offered at the beginning of the first module. Please note that no books are included; this is the instructional DVD only.

    If you like the idea of a dvd to teach your high school physics course, Wes Olson has the solution – Physics 101. Like the other courses in the 101 Series, Wes Olson offers an engaging visual course rather than having the student read a text. Learn about the physics of our world, historical figures and their contributions and do hands-on labs to help you understand the concepts.

    Physics 101 covers concepts in these areas: light and color, mirrors and lenses, invisibility and speed of light, sound, acoustics, fire, thermodynamics, heat and cold, electricity, outlets and circuits, batteries and electromagnetic spectrum, Isaac Newton, Universal Law of Gravity, 1st Law of Motion, 2nd and 3rd Laws of Motion, Albert Einstein, relativity, quantum mechanics and the future of physics. There are 20 segments and a video for each that range in length from 20 to 43 minutes - a total of 11 hours and 10 minutes of video. Options are offered for subtitles and closed captions – a variety of languages are offered.

    There are PDFs that you may want to print and are included on the fourth disc (there are four discs in this course). The first pdf is titled, “Course Accreditation Program” and the second is the “Guidebook.” Instructions for opening the pdfs are printed on the face of Disc 1. Print out the files, hole punch them and put them in a notebook for your convenience.

    The Course Accreditation Program (CAP) is important information on how to use the course and get high school credit – a syllabus. Physics 101 provides about 135 hours of content, which is enough for one credit in physics. Basically, a lesson includes 4 steps: watch the video lesson, discuss the questions (found in the guidebook), do the mini-labs, research, write a 200-word report and take the segment quiz. The CAP includes all of the information for doing mini-labs – lists, instructions and where to fit them in. Mini-labs use common household items and a master list is found on page 4 of the CAP. You may run across a few unusual items, such as a canned air horn, microphone with jack to plug into your cell phone, magnesium fire starter, volt meter, etc. Items that are less common are marked, and you can skip labs if the items can’t be found; you will find that some sections have no labs and others have multiple. Instructions are included for assembling a student notebook that will be used all year; here students will record, take notes.

    The Guidebook is 106 pages and includes the table of contents (showing the segment and chapter divisions), an outline for each segment, discussion questions, quizzes, quiz answers and an alphabetic index.

    Physics 101 is a great high school level physics for your visual student or an interesting and informational watch for your family. Presented from a Christian worldview, students will learn about the relationship between science and the Bible in the area of physics. ~ Donna

    College-bound high school students are expected to write essays. Of the many, there are two (maybe three) essays that are "once-in-a-lifetime" experiences the ACT and/or SAT essay and the college entrance essay. These are very specific types of writing tasks and are quite different from a typical subject area essay and different from one another. One is a timed response to a prompt. It must be completed quickly and coherently. On the other hand, you can take as much time as you want writing the other. It must be as close to perfect as possible. You can prepare for both of these writing experiences. This video seminar from the Institute for Excellence in Writing and presented by Andrew Pudewa is a five DVD set two that cover/review general strategies for essay writing, one each for understanding and preparing for the New ACT Essay and the Redesigned SAT Essay, and, lastly, one covering strategies for the "personal essay."
    General strategies (Parts 1a and 1b) cover types of essays, possible ways to organize body paragraphs as well as possible essay structures, practice in the five canons of classical rhetoric, and stylistic elements. The TRIAC (topic, restriction, illustrations, analysis, clincher) outline is reviewed and practiced.
    The new ACT essay and the redesigned SAT essay have significant differences. The ACT essay is a prompt essay while the redesigned SAT essay is optional and is based on a source text. Parts 2 and 3 of this video seminar series provide techniques for producing quality essays in each of these situations in addition to thoroughly understanding what to expect and what is expected.
    Part 4 examines the personal essay, providing sample essay prompts/questions and typical questions including those that might be specific to Christian colleges as well as some wildcard questions.
    As expected, the most important preparation activity for these types of essays is to write a lot. Students are encouraged to complete one or more essays as a final practice assignment. Utilizing the strategies presented in this seminar and building in opportunities for many practice essays, you will make the best use of your preparation time.
    The HSEI Course includes a set of five DVDs and a course handout as well as an access code for the online streaming version of the seminar. The Handout (available as a separate purchase item as well) is the Portable Walls for the Essayist (a handy set-up-on-your-desk reference for everything pertaining to writing quality essays) plus extensive note-taking material from the seminar.

    Every once in a while, you come across a product that you wish you could have had when you were growing up, and those were exactly my feelings when I reviewed Ellen Johnston McHenry's introductory chemistry course. Geared for the upper elementary to junior-high age students, it introduces chemistry gently, comparing the elements, the ingredients of our world to common kitchen ingredients we use everyday to make many very different baked goods. The analogy kicks off the first chapter, where they learn about the more common elements such as carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, analogous to flour, sugar, and salt, which are used in nearly everything we bake. More uncommon elements such as berylium, gallium, and selenium are compared to fruit, spices, and other add-ins that you might only use in special recipes. The periodic table is then introduced, in the more simplified (and less intimidating) format of the "Kitchen Cupboard of the Universe). The basic concepts of chemistry are introduced in each chapter, in a very simple, understandable format, and avoids bogging them down with details that will be covered (much more exhaustively!) in high school or college. The approach appears to work well, with protons, neutrons, electrons, the electron cloud model, orbitals, bonding, spin, and more covered in just the very first few chapters. Fun and interactive activities are featured at the end of each chapter, to review and reinforce what was covered in the chapter, before moving further on. The activities are a good mix of hands-on experiments, and model-making, puzzles, fill-in-the-blanks, and of course short answer to write electron configurations, Lewis diagrams, chemical compounds and more. The hands-on activities have been well-chosen and illustrate well the concepts that have been learned. Constructing balloon electron cloud models and edible chemical compounds, creating carbon dioxide bubbles, and electolysis are several examples. Several songs are included, for those who are more auditorily oriented. Several more involved activities include making periodic-table pillowcases to play a game on, creating your own "collect-'em-all" chemical elements card deck, and performing several short skits on the discovery of several of the more common elements of the periodic table. Students are also challenged by the author to memorize as much of the periodic table as they can, to help make life easier when they revisit the subject (as well as impress their relatives at get-togethers). At only 78 pages of lessons, this is a fairly brief, but effective introduction to chemistry that could be easily worked into the academic year with any style of curriculum being used. Patterns, outlines, activity sheets, experiments, games, skits and more are included in the Teacher's Section in back half of the book activity packet. And, to make things easier on Mom, most of the materials are easily found, either around the home, or at your local Wal-Mart. (No poring over science supply catalogs trying to decide how many moles of a chemical to order!) A CD is no longer included with the book - instruction is given in the text to stream the songs from the publisher's website and prescreened youtube videos are referenced for additional information.

    All in all, this is a very well-done introduction to the basics of chemistry, and whatever your students take with them from this course will be well applied to more advanced chemistry, making their journey into more advanced chemistry all the more manageable. Plus, I think students will definitely be impressed with themselves for being able to complete some college-level chemistry by Chapter 3 of the book! Personally, my first real experience with chemistry was my senior year of high school, followed by the four semesters of chemistry required by my major, and I think both high school chemistry as well as introductory college chemistry would have been much easier to understand had I had some experience with these concepts at an earlier age. - Jess
