      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's, 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 Gray 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: Across Five Aprils, A Lantern in Her Hand, Eric Liddell, and Gods Smuggler. Literature passages from real books such as The Gift of the Magi, The Little Princess, The Black Arrow, and White Fang are utilized for copy work and dictation. The Gray Book includes a five week writing unit. The writing unit focuses on the four types of papers a student will be required to write in the college setting: Narrative, Persuasive, Compare and Contrast, and Research. Learning Language Arts through Literature incorporates creative expression activities such as creative writing, poetry and prose 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 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 program was very disappointing, lacking clarity, organization, scope and depth. The Liturature selections are extremely limited (a few are meritous choices but narrow in exposure to quality works). We purchased another program and tossed this one.

      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!

      I definitely recommend this series. I'm in the 10th grade and we've been using LLAL since 7th grade. I really like the way they use books to teach you grammer and other things. It's challenging, but not always hard, and I've learned a lot more with this series than I did with our previous curriculum. We did find a few mistakes in the teacher's book for the gray book, but overall the good far outweighs the bad.
