We have access to eight of the World Book libraries from our site: Early Learning, Kids, Student, Advanced, eBooks, Timelines, Discover, and Enciclopedia Estudiantil Hallazgos (Spanish K–4th grade library). As a member, your family has access to all the content in all of those, and you could use it in addition to the SchoolhouseTeachers.com courses or just for family learning. A few of our lessons point kids to specific articles in the content to read. The rest is simply there to enjoy and enrich your school day. For example, there are science experiments, learning games and activities, short videos on select topics, history with primary sources lessons, research helps, and a lot of other great features. You can find out more about the World Book resources here.
Depending on your family’s needs, you can use SchoolhouseTeachers.com as the core of your curriculum or to fill in gaps in your current curriculum. We’re providing an extremely broad spectrum for you, and you’ll see our list of subjects grow month by month. That being said, we recognize two things: (1) many families are already using programs they enjoy and are benefiting greatly from, and (2) all families are different. So, here’s our short answer: For a number of families, yes! You’ll have plenty here to keep your day filled and to challenge your children in every way, in every subject you need. For others, it will fill the final gaps or provide the outline for much or most of your day, or supplement your curriculum in subjects you feel you just don’t have a good handle on. If there is a specific course you would like us to add, we’d love to hear from you! Please email Angela Quigley at stmanager@TheOldSchoolhouse.com with your thoughts and suggestions.
