      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 Susan S. Simpson, a teacher, author and publisher and Diane Welch, a homeschooling mother of five, who is an avid reader and lover of fine literature.

      Learning Language Arts through Literature Tan Book is a comprehensive language arts curriculum which teaches spelling, reading, grammar, composition, research and study skills, and 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: "Carry On, Mr. Bowditch," "The Bronze Bow," "Big Red," and "The Horse and His Boy." Literature passages from "real books" such as " Bambi," "Little House in the Big Woods," "Kidnapped," "The Hiding Place," "Prince Caspian," "King of the Wind," "The Wheel on the School," "The Swiss Family Robinson," "Swallows and Amazons," "Robinson Crusoe," "The Wind in the Willows," "Caddie Woodlawn," "Where the Red Fern Grows," "The Railway Children" "The House at Pooh Corner," "Anne of Green Gables," "Aesop's Fables," "Little Women" and "Invincible Louisa" are utilized for copy work and dictation. The Tan Book includes two units: Using the library and writing a research paper. Learning Language Arts through Literature incorporates creative expression activities such as creative writing, oral presentation and poetry 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!

      Wasn't really laid out for easy teaching. Took too much teacher time to prepare and use effectively.

      i always like teachers manuals, especially in language arts since it is not my strength. This one does a fine job of helping me help my daughter.
