    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 Green 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 curriculums book studies. Real Book selections include: Star of Light, Adam and His Kin, and Much Ado About Nothing. Literature passages from real books such as Black Beauty, The Borrowers, Devil in Print, Eight Cousins, and The Story of the Treasure Seekers are utilized for copy work and dictation. The Green Book includes four units: Everyday Words, Poetry, Short Story and Research. 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 students 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 home schooler, I have perused several language arts curricula. I cannot praise this curriculum enough! Learning Language Arts through Literature receives an A+ from this homeschooling parent!

    Lessons are well marked out. They are a nice size for one day and a good variety. Some of the instructions are not the clearest, but maybe that is just us since it is our first year with them! I'm not fond of the way they have laid out the enrichment exercises. They are not difficult or long to do and they add variety. I can't imagine any child not enjoying them. But all the enrichment exercises are listed together in the back of the parents' edition. Not a big deal, just an unnecessary inconvenience. Binding makes it inconvenient to manage. This would work better as a spiral bound. I got the kids spiral bound for just under $4 at Office Depot. Unfortunately, the parent version doesn't give as much margin, so I'm afraid I'd lose information.

    Thorough and comprehensive. Enjoyable literature selections with many assessment and activity types to choose from. Clear explanation for the new home educator. A great series!
