    ACT prep – comprehensive and thorough – without the frantic feel. That about sums it up! This course offers a change of pace – and a change of focus – from the typical prep courses. Yes, it still covers vocabulary. Yes, it still provides test-taking strategies. Yes, it still provides detailed review of all subject areas: English, math, reading, writing, and science. But it also provides a call to prayer and devotional preparation that will cause your student to remember to put first things first.

    If you’ve ever wondered about the differences between the ACT and the SAT, you’ll find a clear analysis of each and suggestions for how best to prepare for each. In the introductory ACT test overview, the author covers these topics as well as provides information on how scores are used, average scores for certain universities, as well as suggestions for two essential habits to develop.

    Designed to be used over a ten week period, the course is comprised of fifty daily lessons. Lessons will probably take 1-2 hours to complete so be sure to factor that into your planning. Lesson format is consistent. Starting with a scripture verse, prayer points, and a devotional passage (often derived from classic books), then progressing to individual sections for Vocabulary (Greek/Latin roots or from classic literature), math (review and practice problems), reading (short passages with questions), English (editing and analysis), writing (analysis), and science (sample questions). Test-taking info and strategies are also part of each lesson. Although this format does not vary, the emphasis does vary some with each lesson – one day more time will be spent on science; another day, more on writing, etc. Both end-notes and a complete answer key are included in the back.

    If you’re an appendix-lover, then you’ll be pleased with what’s provided here. First is a brief tutorial on preparing vocabulary cards followed by an extensive reading list grouped by high school grade level. Models for reading and devotional journals as well as lists of Greek and Latin morphemes complete the appendices.

    Compared to other ACT test prep courses, there are two obvious differences with this course. First of all, there is a decided emphasis on the spiritual development and focus of the student. Secondly, test sections (i.e. English, math, etc.) are studied side-by-side rather than as a concentrated focus for a period of time before going on to the next section. Both of these contribute to the sense that test prep is really an opportunity to develop overall maturing in the student. 332 pgs, pb. Janice

    A creative, interactive, hands-on approach to vocabulary! What better way to retain the learning of new words? Using index cards, a file box, and a good dictionary, this approach is a welcome departure from the typical workbook fare. And, subtitled: Help for Reading, Writing, Spelling and S.A.T. Scores, it's obvious from looking at this book that it would, indeed, do just that! How? By teaching the roots of the English language found in Greek and Latin. Since the majority of our words are rooted in these classical languages, mastering these roots is a key that will open the door to understanding a myriad of words! The creative activity suggestions in this book could become the basis for wonderful unit studies as well.

    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.

    Memoria Press has a knack for giving parents the confidence to tackle heavy literature with their children. This is done by providing background historical information on the authors and their time period as well as historical material relevant to the literature itself. Do a little studying in here before teaching the lessons and you should be able to answer your kids' questions like a professor!

    Horatius at the Bridge is a story from ancient Rome, so it would be a great addition to any study of ancient culture or even a Latin language program. I like to see stories added to language studies. It gives the words some context about the people who speak it (or in the case of Latin, spoke it.) This story is a ballad or poem format. Parents are guided on meter and pronunciation. Each verse has a summary and characters are explained. There are lesson plans to follow. Hard names and words are spelled out phonetically and defined alongside the poem itself. This saves a lot of time with a dictionary.

    In the back is a study guide for students. Comprehension questions are in sections and have plenty of space for kids to write their answers here. Some exercises are matching vocabulary words to synonyms, but most require a sentence or two to answer. There are maps of the various Roman regions, a glossary of ancient place names and their modern equivalents, and a comprehensive test with 19 questions that require kids to write one or two sentence answers. A complete answer key to the study guide questions and the test are in the back. Not reproducible. 75 pgs, pb ~ Sara

     With plenty of examples from classic and modern literature, this book teaches students about a variety of literary terms and devices. The following concepts are covered: plot, conflict, character, setting, point of view, style, mood, theme, tone, and genre. Each element is defined and then explained with examples from literary excerpts. Exercises help students develop and apply their skills in these areas. For example, in the "Story Elements" section, there are exercises requiring students to match up cause and effect statements and sequence of events based on context clues. Short answer and writing activities are also featured throughout the book. One assignment requires students to write a paragraph from different points of view, while another asks students to describe the tone and mood of a book they've recently read. Vocabulary words appear in bold throughout the lessons, and the length of each lesson varies. An appendix contains a story elements chart, a character development chart, glossary, answer key, and bibliography. Reproducible. 80 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
