H.E.L.P.s (Home Education Lesson Plans) The H.E.L.P. curriculums were designed to fulfill a need for students (6th grade and up) to quickly and easily self-educate themselves in so-called "difficult" subjects and become familiar and comfortable with their associated vocabulary.

Many times, new college students will find themselves overwhelmed by the mere vocabulary of the course they are taking and the H.E.L.P.s are designed to give them an edge. The H.E.L.P.s are presented in a form that is logical, easy, and fun; filled with various learning tools that "help" cement the lesson in the students’ minds. These learning tools include: word searches, matching, fill-in-the-blanks, unscrambling, crossword puzzles, and diagrams (if needed). Each H.E.L.P. also contains a glossary of the vocabulary taught in it, an answer key, as well as suggestions of some excellent websites, books, or games that would further augment the student’s learning.

H.E.L.P. for Greek Words in the English Language (75 pages) H.E.L.P. for Basic Anatomy & Physiology I (Eye, Ear, Heart, Brain) (60 pages) H.E.L.P. for Basic Cell Biology (75 pages) H.E.L.P. for Basic Cell Biology - Laboratory (not available until March 2003) Contact H.E.L.P.s for Self-Education by emailing us at tamiswed@yahoo.com, or writing us at 960 Perth Road, Troutman, NC 28166, and we will send you a order form, or visit us online at www.helpselfeducate.us.

Barchowsky Fluent Handwriting provides everything you need to learn and teach easy, legible, rhythmic handwriting.

Children learn to write one way only. The simple letterforms that beginners learn are the same as those that will join up for true cursive writing. There is no hassle to learn two ways to write, no transition from print to conventional cursive.

Please visit http://www.BFHhandwriting.com to learn about this unique program and its author, a handwriting specialist who developed the program within elementary classrooms.
  • It’s economical. You have no consumable workbooks. Everything you need for every student is on a CD. You select and print only the exemplars you want or need. With the cutting-edge fonts described at http://www.eccentrifuge.com/clients/BarchowskyFluentHandOTGr.html you can create custom exemplars. In this way handwriting instruction can be integrated into all academic studies or interests, from spelling to math to foreign languages.
     
  • John Butler says of my program, "There is NO OTHER computer-based handwriting education system that is as automated and easy to use as yours…it’s easily…the best way available for doing custom handwriting exemplars."
     
  • Charlotte Gregory, a first grade teacher says, "…an instructor’s dream when it comes to teaching penmanship…very fluent, beautiful, and highly legible."

History - The Professor B Math Program for arithmetic and algebra has a powerful history of achievement over the past thirty years. This claim is substantiated by many testimonials, statistical analyses and research. We have set many precedents in mathematics education:

  1. Kindergarten and first graders mastering the lower/higher addition/subtraction facts and reading numbers in the hundreds of trillions.
  2. Second graders mastering all multiplication facts and long division.
  3. Fifth graders mastering "seventh grade math."
  4. Fifth and sixth grade classes in the most disadvantaged communities outperforming ninth graders on statewide algebra exams.

Philosophy - A story is verbalized so effectively that virtually all children perceive the flow of its connections. On future occasions, children can confidently tell that story to others, having heard it once or twice. Since their verbalization is not the original, verbatim narrative, it is clear that they have not been burdened with the requirement of memorizing it. Without memorizing, they have retained the events of the story in the proper sequence. The set of events and their sequence are an example of a structure. Hence, children's ease and comfort in learning stories testifies to the universality of their gift for assimilating structure. Please note, however, that the conveyance of a structure may only occur if the speaker's verbalization permits the listener's reception. The mathematics educator should know that, of all the academic disciplines, the one most concerned with the study of structure is mathematics. Consequently, it is our thesis that children's universal gift for assimilating structures is also a universal gift for assimilating mathematics. Unfortunately, traditional verbalizations of mathematical content (from elementary through high school) are so untruthful and meaningless that they actually obscure, rather than elucidate, learners' reception of mathematical structures. The Professor B Mathematics Program provides teachers with truthful and meaningful verbalizations of math content (scripts), whereby children's gifts for assimilating structures are inevitably activated for assimilation of mathematics. This original philosophy is the basis for our confident guarantee that the implementation of our math program in your home school or school system will lift your math scores to the highest levels of achievement in the nation.

Teach Me Professor B - If you are a parent or teacher, you will be very surprised at the extent to which our books present arithmetic and algebra as a sequential, developmental flow of related information. Even if you can do arithmetic well, you may not have realized that it could actually make sense. As you read, you will experience the contextually related flow of concepts and skills in your mind. Consequently, your learning of the mathematics will become as certain as the learning of a story. You will discover that you can, simultaneously, learn the subject matter in these books and learn how to teach it. You will now be able to provide meaningful explanations to those whose mathematical development you are in a position to influence.

SYSTEMATIC MATHEMATICS

INTRODUCTION
My name is Paul Ziegler and I started teaching math 40 years ago. Just as there is a system to reading, called phonics, there is also a system to mathematics. Just as you can read any word if you know and apply the system of phonics, you can also solve any math problem if you know and apply the system of mathematics. This system has not been taught in the schools for 40 years and it is not being taught in most home school curricula either. Systematic Mathematics seeks to instill the understanding of the system rather than a rote memorizing of rules. The program runs itself, they will learn it and you will love it.

MORE THAN JUST MATH ON TAPE
I teach all of the lessons on video tape. I teach for understanding. I stay on message and don’t jump from one thing to the other. I also apply the material to every day applications so the students can see the relevance of what he or she is learning. I am hearing echoes from all over the country. From PA. “I love the way you teach”, from GA., “I am telling everyone I know about your system”. From CO., “we can see so clearly how much more practical and helpful this math is than anything we’ve tried”, From WI.,"Yes, we are having success with your unit. No more tears and she has improved 1 1/2 grades.

"I am so thankful for you and your program. Blessings to you for creating such a great program. It was and is an answer to a Mother's prayer." From VA. "I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know we LOVE Systematic Mathematics. It has been a blessing to us. Finally my children enjoy and understand Math. My youngest son actually wanted to do another lesson instead of TV time. We will be using your program for a long time to come. Thank you."

PRINTED MATERIALS ON DISK
All of the worksheets, study sheets, data sheets, and answers are on disk so you can print them on your computer’s printer. No more ordering expensive consumable workbooks. If you need more material for a second or third child, you simply print it.

MODULAR PACKAGING
Modular packaging makes the system more flexible and convenient. If you need to work on one thing, you don’t need to buy a whole years worth of material to do it.

ECONOMICAL
I work hard to keep the cost down. The cost of my modules is based on my cost of materials and enough extra to do advertising and pay the other costs of doing business. I am retired and don’t need this business to support me. I am the business. I copy the tapes, I write the material, I teach the material, I mail the material. There is no one to pass the buck to. I even make my own mistakes and take responsibility for them.

GUARANTEE
If you don’t like it, you don’t keep it. Send it back and I will refund your money. It is as simple as that.

    SCHOOL STEPSTM
    Homeschooling your children is an effective alternative to either public or private school. Safety and the quality of education are major concerns today. And, as a result, a growing number of families are schooling their children at home. It is estimated that over one million children are being schooled at home in the United States.

    ASC has developed School StepsTM to take away the burden parents face when selecting curriculum materials. The materials were all thoughtfully selected and the lesson plans developed by fully credentialed teachers. Each grade’s content is based on the California State Frameworks. The key to this program is the Curriculum Manual that provides detailed guidance to the parent and student; it explains exactly what to do with all the materials provided and includes a weekly lesson plan. Our programs for kindergarten through ninth grades have been used successfully since 1994.

    Price varies from $340 to $410 based on the choice of math program.
    For more information call ASC at (818) 846-8990.

    We stand apart! The key to the success of Professor B methodology is Professor Everard Barrett’s identification of the universal gift for learning mathematics and his original strategies for activating it in virtually all children.

    The Professor B Mathematics Power Learning Program has a powerful history of achievement over the past thirty years. This claim is substantiated by many testimonials, statistical analyses and research. We have set many precedents in mathematics education:

    • Kindergarten and first graders mastering the lower/higher addition/subtraction facts and reading numbers in the hundreds of trillions (fifteen-digit numbers).
    • Second graders mastering all multiplication facts and long division.
    • Fifth graders mastering “seventh grade math.”
    • Fifth and sixth grade classes in the most disadvantaged communities outperforming ninth graders on statewide algebra exams.

    Interdisciplinary. Comprehensive. Character-building. Literature-based 
    unit studies open the door to an in-depth study of a literary work as 
    well as the world of that book and its people. Such seemingly diverse 
    subjects as history, health, character, Scripture, science, writing, 
    grammar, occupational education, and the fine arts are woven together 
    into a cultural context. Centered on a classic piece of literature like 
    Anne of Green Gables, The Little House on the Prairie Series, or the 
    Chronicles of Narnia, they build on the ability of literature to help 
    us identify with people. They guide students to see the world through 
    the eyes of the characters—the times, the events, the daily life of the 
    period. They experience the self-sufficiency of a farm in the late 
    1900’s, the challenges of pioneer life, how factories changed family 
    life, and rationing during WWII. Many hands-on activities such as meal 
    preparation, drawing, making prints, visiting the elderly, archery, and 
    fencing allow students to touch the era of study. Character is built 
    through Scripture study and memorization; debating of the current moral 
    issues; and application of Biblical principles to the analysis of the 
    actions and values of the characters. As a variety of activities and 
    thought-provoking questions spark curiosity, students grow not only in 
    knowledge, but also develop skills of scholarship and independent 
    study. For the teacher, too, this cross-curriculum format with 
    detailed planning guides and resource information makes instruction 
    easier and more manageable. 
    Cadron Creek Christian Curriculum, the home of the unique and highly 
    effective literature-based unit study, has been serving parents and 
    teachers by providing sound academic materials for training in 
    scholarship and godliness for ten years. To find out more about these 
    studies as well as a variety of other helpful books and reference 
    resources, contact Cadron Creek Christian Curriculum. Request a free 
    brochure with catalog by email at marigold@cadroncreek.com and see us

    Teach Me…Tapes, Inc. Foreign Language Using Music and Stories. I invite you to journey down the musical road of language learning. Nineteen years ago, while searching for foreign language materials for my children, I saw the need for a fun, educationally entertaining approach to language learning. Aware that music is a natural and universal means of communication, I decided to use children’s favorite songs. Studies prove a child’s early exposure to new languages promotes a better appreciation of our own multi-cultural society. What better gift to offer our youth than the tools and ideas to understand the world we live in. This is why Teach Me Tapes are available to children everywhere. Judy Mahoney, Creator. Our books and audio are available in ten languages: Chinese, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish. Our newest title, Teach Me Spanish Spiritual Songs, includes 21 songs and prayers, plus stories and activities. It features The Butterfly Song and Digo Si Senor. Please visit our Web site to learn about this title and our award winning product line. www.teachmetapes.com or call us at 800-456-4656.

    ”One of the most innovative teaching tools we have ever seen. The audio with its large format book will be an instant grab for any child.”
