Are you looking for a homeschool curriculum that will sharpen your teen's language skills, as well as improve application of those skills in real life situations? That's exactly what you'll find with LIFEPAC English I Set from Alpha Omega Publications! Unlike other curriculum which separate language arts into individual subjects, LIFEPAC integrates all the language strands into one program. This integrated approach is designed to build critical connections between grammar, vocabulary, literature, and writing, and helps to enhance a student's ability to apply language skills in everyday life. The ninth grade program consists of ten colorful, step-by-step worktexts which provide daily instruction, self tests, and unit tests. This Alpha Omega curriculum includes lessons in the structure and nature of language, dictionary use, mnemonics, reading skills, and library skills. Literary genres such as drama, the short story, and the novel are also studied.
But there's more! With a focus on independent learning, this outstanding homeschool program encourages critical thinking and academic independence in your child. And for the teacher, an essential teacher's guide is also included which offers teaching notes, answer keys, alternate tests, and an abundance of enrichment activities. The inclusion of these extra elements provides opportunities for individualization based on your child's particular needs.

LIFEPACs have long been a mainstay for Christian homeschoolers, providing easy to implement, largely self-instructional materials. The Language Arts program is particularly good, providing excellent instruction and practice at all levels, but highly recommended at the high school level. Lower levels teach and reinforce phonics and reading skills and introduce writing skills. These levels should be supplemented by appropriate grade-level reading materials or with grade-level study guides and books. Upper levels focus more on grammar, spelling, composition, and comprehension. Beginning in grade 7, required literature selections complement the LIFEPAC instruction (see below) at most levels. Novels that are studied are included in the Complete Boxed Sets, so you don't need to purchase them separately. Even so, you will probably want to provide an additional literature component (see our extensive offerings of study guides and literature programs in the Reading section). Boxed Sets contain LIFEPACs and teacher manuals with answer keys and any required readers. For additional students, order the LIFEPAC only sets and additional readers.
