BookShark Language Arts is new and improved! After interviewing numerous focus groups, they found what parents wanted:
Bookshark had classroom teachers work with homeschool moms to add these changes to their instructor guides. To address those needs, they added:
- They wanted to know what skills they were teaching.
- They wanted to know exactly what to say to their students.
- They wanted to know if their students had mastered the skill.
The Language Arts giveaway includes the Language Arts Instructor's Guide as well as the corresponding Readers. (Retail value between $150 - $210)
- Weekly overviews to ensure parents know what they are teaching.
- Daily lesson plan scripts so parents know exactly how to instruct their students.
- Weekly rubrics to help parents evaluate their student's progress.
