Complete, easy-to-use curriculum with minimal teacher planning. LIFEPACs are like small worktexts. With ten per grade level, courses seem less intimidating to children. Moreover, many parents have commented that their children respond better to this mastery-learning approach than more free-form coursework, with better retention and understanding. For those yearning for more hands-on activities, use it as a framework to hang those fun, but supplemental, learning experiences on. Depending on your child's learning style and your lifestyle, LIFEPACs may fill the bill for one or several courses per year. It's easy to implement, easy to administer, easy to grade, and largely self-instructional. Grading is simple and consistent and from a Christian perspective. Complete boxed sets include Teacher's Guides with answer keys. For additional students, choose the LIFEPAC only sets.
