English, Language Arts, Full Curriculum In this 12-week 5-day Full English Language Arts Curriculum, we will cover all the Language Arts bases. This class will cover Spelling, Reading, Grammar, and Writing, and will include weekly assignments that can be turned in on the computer and Self-Grading Tests. While asynchronous with no LIVE classes, this class is very interactive. Each week there will be videos and quizzes, games, or inspirational lessons to play with. I am very active in the...
I have taught for over 30 years at this point. I started as a corporate trainer training, at the time, high-end IT classes. I went on to homeschool my children through high school, an endeavor that took 16 years. During those years I ran several Co-op classes for junior high and high school Language Arts, Public Speaking, and Drama. I also created Scene and Heard Performing Arts, a live homeschool Drama Club for ages 5-18. I am very familiar with upper elementary, middle school, high school, and adult learning.
There is a lot of homework in this class. Each lesson day will have independent work that takes between 10-30 minutes, with some of the writing assignments taking longer.
Most material will be printable and provided with the cost of the class. Please make sure that you have paper and ink ready. Many lessons require 3-5 sheets of paper. I have tried to make as much of the material available digitally as possible. The reference material does not need to be printed, but your student will need to be able to access the online book. (You can print it, but it is over 30 pages at the writing of this class.) Your student will need a binder to organize their paperwork. Your learner will need their own copy of the books below. Please feel free to use the library or digital editions of the books. I do not recommend audiobooks for this class simply because we are building reading fluency and seeing the words really helps with solidifying the words in the memory. I am including Amazon Links merely for reference. These are not affiliate links.

Through independent assignments and tests, your student will have a final grade assessed. A spreadsheet will be provided so that you can tell how they are doing.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
While there is nothing scary here, this is a printed materials heavy class. I've done my best to make most of the tests available in a digital format, however, in both grammar and spelling, there is a packet for each week. Many of my students need help with the printing of these materials. We will also use the website Kahoot.it periodically. Mostly for practice for spelling and grammar.

My name is Stacey Hamlin, and I love to teach. I believe that we can learn anything and everything…with a few tools, and the ability to lay down our fears and try. As a kid, I moved a lot. By the time I was 14 years old, I’d been to or...
