Of Bananas And Hard-Boiled Eggs$16.95Add to cart
America as a nation is arguably the most pluralistic nation of the twenty-first century. It is common to hear many different languages in the schools, shopping centers, airports, or neighborhoods in the United States. ESL classes help people of these different language groups learn how to communicate in English, so it is only natural that an ESL curriculum addresses topics relevant to a person’s journey toward biculturalism. The goal of this advanced English conversation curriculum is to help ESL learners mainstream into the dominant culture and develop a comfortable bicultural identity. That way, they can be at home in both their culture of origin and their new “foreign” culture. The expectation is that through English conversation practice and discussion of topics relevant to them, learners will develop the confidence to move outside the cocoon of their own language group. They can then interact successfully in English in the daily routines of life because they understand English and can be understood by English-speaking people. The content is developed from real-life stores, written by a team including ESL learners about issues they have experienced in learning how to live successfully in the United States. Since the curriculum is discussion-based, it gives the learners the opportunity to discuss their feelings and to support one another in their cultural adjustment.

King Alfreds English$20.00Add to cart
Men and women during the times of the Reformation gave their lives so that we could read the Bible in our native tongue! But how did this “native tongue” of ours, that we call English, come to be? This book is a fun and enlightening view of English history, through the lens of the major language “invasions” which affected it, and how they changed the shape and form of English.
More than a history of the English language, this is a highly entertaining and educational celebration of the delights of English. Woven into this history are the stories of several key English authors, whose prose and poetry have influenced the development of English. Learn how words morph and mutate, how grammar shifts and simplifies, and with some zany word histories thrown in, get a fresh look at English altogether!
Also you’ll learn why the English Bible had an unparalleled impact on the development of our language.
“In my 26 years of homeschooling, I have rarely found a book like yours; full of godly, interesting information and presented in such an engaging way. Going through your book with my children is something we still talk about together. I just wanted you to know that I am recommending this book to all of my readers as a must for advanced (high school) language arts.” -Sherry Hayes

English For The Thoughtful Child$18.95Add to cart
I had a long list of things I wanted to find in a first grammar/composition text. I wanted to apply what Charlotte Mason called narration. I wanted material that would concentrate on the writing process and yet not burden the young child. I wanted a text that would draw the child into writing. I wanted at text that would lay the foundation for good composition skills that would be applied in all learning situations. With seven children to care for (and now there are eleven!), I wanted something simple and fun to work with-both for me and my children. When I found this book, I knew I had found the book I wanted to use. Originally published in 1903, the book uses wonderful pictures to stimulate the child’s imagination and lead him or her to writing (see the front cover of the book for a sample). The grammar that is introduced includes those things necessary to the writing task. There are memorization assignments, oral composition, written composition and practice exercises. I use this book for our second grade English text, but it is also very useful as a first course for older, reluctant writers. No teacher’s edition necessary. Everything you need is in the student text.
