Principles Behind the High School Language Arts Courses

  • Focuses on strong writing skills and preparing students for college-level courses.
  • With beautiful artwork and profanity-free literature of the highest moral and literary standards, this full school-year student-directed course combines the following subjects: Literature, Writing, Grammar, Usage, Punctuation, Spelling, Vocabulary, Geography, Art, and Art History.
  • The student completes 10 unit booklets, which guide the student through the assignments, videos to watch online, and the reading books integrated with the course. After turning in each booklet to the parent or teacher (with the accompanying writing assignments), the parent or teacher corrects the booklet and administers a unit check.

Little Men by Louisa May Alcott

$9.99
Details

July had come, and haying begun; the little gardens were doing finely and the long summer days were full of pleasant hours. The house stood open from morning till night, and the lads lived out of doors, except at school time. The lessons were short, and there were many holidays, for the Bhaers believed in cultivating healthy bodies by much exercise, and our short summers are best used in out-of-door work. Such a rosy, sunburnt, hearty set as the boys became; such appetites as they had; such sturdy arms and legs, as outgrew jackets and trousers; such laughing and racing all over the place; such antics in house and barn; such adventures in the tramps over hill and dale; and such satisfaction in the hearts of the worthy Bhaers, as they saw their flock prospering in mind and body, I cannot begin to describe.

Miss Jo March, the beloved character from Little Women—now Mrs. Jo Bhaer—fills her home at Plumfield with boys in need of guidance, an education, and, above all, affection. The children are full of mischievous and amusing larks in each chapter. Discover with the Plumfield household how, despite some disastrous events, "love is a flower that grows in any soil [and] works its sweet miracles undaunted by autumn frost or winter snow."

"With incredibly beautiful, descriptive writing, Alcott tells the endearing story of Plumfield, a home and school for boys, where Mr. and Mrs. Bhaer provide their boys with a very different type of education and a lot of love. Powerful messages in this book include devotion to family, self-control, unselfishness, patience, respect for parents, gentleness, creativity, love of learning, hard work, optimism, proper use of money, and humility. This is a classic that should not be missed." —Jenny Phillips
