CENTRIFUGE LANGUAGE ARTS CURRICULUM - Not Only Content, But a Whole New System of Teaching
Review By Kay Miller

Click to learn more

One of the most difficult tasks of a homeschool parent is choosing an effective language arts curriculum. Many parents find themselves mixing and matching programs in an attempt to create the best match for their child.  And, for families with multiple children, a language arts program that works for one child often doesn’t work with another and what works one year, may not work the next. Taking this dilemma into consideration, Centrifuge Language Arts Curriculum designed a comprehensive K-12 language arts program that is adaptable to all academic levels and meets the needs of both accelerated and disadvantaged students. The curriculum framework features complete correlated coverage of 6 areas of language arts: phonics, English grammar, spelling, creative writing, penmanship and how to teach reading.

Cotton's Journey: Planting the Seeds of Knowledge

island
Click to learn more

Have you ever wondered where the clothes you and your family wear come from…or the dressing you put on your salad…or the sheets and towels you use everyday?  Did you know that fine writing paper, medical supplies, plastics, cosmetics, recording tapes and even the money you use to buy these things are made from COTTON?

A comprehensive kit designed by a third generation farm family from Tranquillity, California, the Yribarren Family can answer these questions and more. In 1993, Janette and Rick, along with their three sons Jeff, Mitch and Travis, wanted to let the rest of the Nation know what they had already discovered; and to do it in a fun and educational manner.  Hence, Cotton’s Journey—A Field Trip In a Box was conceived.

Diana Dow, a homeschooling mom of six for many years, knows her subject(s) and she brings her knowledge and expertise to your fingertips with her large website resource, The Dow's Schoolroom. Although Diana is a Christian homeschooler and her site features many Christian-based products, she also searches out and offers products that are not, and are completely suitable for non-Christian homeschoolers.

When a new homeschooling parent is wondering what to do, how to proceed, "Does everybody else experience this?" there is nothing like the voice of a seasoned "professional" homeschooling mom to ease your mind and clear your way.

High School eLearning

Welcome to the world of online learning!

High School eLearning specializes in providing interactive online high school electives. Our courses are set up in the same course management system used by many universities. In addition to learning about subjects that interest them, students also gain experience managing their own learning, using an online learning system and trying out technology tools that are essential in today’s workplace and University settings. This student-centered learning environment is the perfect place for students to enter the world of online learning.

High School eLearning is not a school - parents are still an important part of their student’s education, even if they are not “experts” in the subjects the students are learning! Our online curriculum allows every student to work independently on each course, guided by a weekly checklist of textbook reading assignments, online interactive lessons and games - and for some courses, hands on projects.

Our online courses are not “text on a screen” or a “course in a box”. Teacher’s manuals and grading keys are a thing of the past. Every course has a textbook, workbook or kit to accompany the online interactive lessons and activities. After each week’s activities, the online self-grading quizzes help students to check their knowledge of the subject as they progress through the course. They can look at their quiz answers and repeat the quizzes to correct misconceptions and improve their score. Everything is tracked in the student’s individual online gradebook.

Lightning Lit & Comp guides, published by Hewitt Homeschooling Resources, are a unique approach in the combined study of literature and composition.  Unlike most other programs that require reading a variety of seemingly disconnected pieces of literature, Lightning Lit focuses on a limited number of classics to provide an in-depth, systematic study approach.  Lightning Lit and Comp guides use full-length novels, autobiographies, plays, essays, short stories, and poems to teach deep reading and composition skills. Guides are available for a variety of junior and high school courses including American Literature, British Literature, World Literature, Christian British Authors and Shakespeare.

There are so many opportunities for learning...so many curriculum options...so many hands-on resources...so many projects and activities available.

Oak Meadow School

One of the original homeschool curriculum creators is also the premier K-12 distance-learning school for homeschoolers all over the globe. Oak Meadow is a well-known name to any “veteran” homeschooling family, having begun providing creative curriculum products and distance learning instruction in the late 1970s.

Lawrence Williams and his late wife, Bonnie, began Oak Meadow as a day school in Ojai, California in 1975. Lawrence had a B.S. in Marketing and an M.A. in Elementary Education and had been influenced by the Waldorf educational philosophy during a visit to Switzerland in the early 1970s. At Oak Meadow School, he taught his own children, as well as children of a small group of local families, using his own Waldorf-inspired philosophy of holistic teaching.

Why Are So Many Christians Teens Abandoning Their Faith?
Not only are large numbers of Christians (and especially Christian youth) abandoning their faith; they are adopting the false ideas presented throughout our culture:  Darwinism, naturalism, relativism, postmodernism, pluralism, and many others. Christians have simply not been taught how to develop a comprehensive Christian view of reality or an intelligent biblical defense regarding the fundamental issues of our day.

More college freshmen today describe themselves as liberal than at any time since the Vietnam War, according to a nationwide survey taken during the fall of 2001. 57.9% think gay couples should have the legal right to marry and 29.9% say they are "far left," the highest figure since 1975.

Test A New Curriculum, This Summer and Enjoy Your Time Off!

Summer is a great time to try new things. After all – following the same learning routine year round can get to be repetitive… and boring. With Time4Learning.com, you can easily experiment with a technology-based curriculum that was voted as a top three selection of the Homeschool.com "Top 100 Educational Websites of 2009."

Time4Learning takes an “outside-of the-box” approach to education; a refreshing change from sitting in a classroom or at a table reading textbooks. Kids get an individual learning path based on subject skill mastery rather than grade level. They can work at their own pace and on their own terms. This gives them a sense of ownership over their progress, which can be a great motivator. Plus, students get access to the grade above and the grade below each subject, so they can advance or review any time they need to.
