      Learning Language Arts through Literature is based on the educational philosophy of Dr. Ruth Beechick and her natural learning method as outlined in her books, "The Three R'," "Language and Thinking for Young Children," and "You Can Teach Your Child Successfully." The curriculum is authored by the late Debbie Strayer, a homeschooling mother, teacher, author and public speaker, and Susan S. Simpson, a teacher, author and publisher.

      Learning Language Arts through Literature Orange Book is a comprehensive language arts curriculum which teaches spelling, reading, grammar, composition, research and study skills, higher order thinking skills, creative expression and penmanship. The authors have chosen "real books" which are the back bone for the curriculum's book studies. "Real Book" selections include: "The Boxcar Children," "Wilbur and Orville Wright," "Benjamin Franklin," and "The Sign of the Beaver." Literature passages from "real books" are utilized for copy work and dictation. The Orange Book includes five units: Research, Journal Writing, Poetry, Newspaper and Book Making. Learning Language Arts through Literature incorporates creative expression activities such as illustrating poetry, recitation, writing an ad, haiku and limerick into the daily lesson plans.

      The instructors guide is comprised of easy to use lesson plans spanning a period of 36 weeks.

      Each lesson is made up of the following components: New Skills Taught, Materials Needed, Scripted Lesson Plan, Higher Order Thinking Skills, Answers, Examples, Diagrams and References to the student activity book. The Skills Index is an easy to use reference for the teaching parent. Assessments allow the teacher to evaluate the student's progress. Review activities follow the lessons to provide the student with additional skills practice. Placement tests are available online at the Common Sense Press website.

      As a homeschooler, I have perused several language arts curriculums. I cannot praise this curriculum enough! Learning Language Arts Through Literature receives an A+ from this homeschooling parent!

      This is the third year I have used this program, and I just love it. It is very important to have the teachers guide for this because it is more than an answer key. The teachers guide often expands on the topic you are teaching, giving you and your child a more complete learning experience. I love the way this uses books, newspapers, journal writing, the library... It moves through real world learning in a controlled way. The only slight minus this program has is that the grammar lessons are not as clear and strong as I would like them to be. I highly recommend this.
