Description

Literature Kits for Homeschool students in 6th-12th grade​,​ providing everything needed to make English Language Arts a SUCCESS. While my location says South Carolina​,​ I'm a Roadschool Teacher who travels all over the country​,​ with my roots in Northern California. I’m a certified librarian and English teacher​,​ with a gifted endorsement. I have been teaching for almost two decades in both public schools and for homeschooled students and groups. I am a graduate of Nevada State College with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters of Science in Library Science from the University of North Carolina​,​ Chapel Hill. It was my love of books that first had me leave the classroom and go back to college for my library degree. It brings me great joy to talk about books with kids​,​ teachers​,​ or parents. I can talk about magic schools​,​ dragons​,​ space odysseys​,​ love triangles​,​ and tragic teenage angst all day. However​,​ as my career as a librarian progressed​,​ I saw the way English Language Arts was being taught in Public School and it broke my heart. Common Core and state standards have taken the joy of reading out of the English curriculum. That's when I started teaching ELA to homeschool students. There is a freedom to homeschool that I will never achieve in public school. With my homeschool curriculum​,​ I am able to be incredibly creative with the novels I choose​,​ the lessons I craft​,​ and I find that the students are so much more eager to learn because of that. A Couch Readers is for the families who are looking for Unique and Affordable English Language Arts programs that take care of all your Reading​,​ Writing​,​ and Creative Writing needs​,​ complete with interactive lessons​,​ modern literature​,​ plus a teaching guide with answer key and grading rubrics. Every Kit starts with a novel and the lessons grow from there. Studies have shown that children who read novels are more empathetic​,​ score higher on standardized tests​,​ and form a life-long love of reading. Each Kit contains: A Student Workbook A Teaching Guide Copies of ALL books required An Annotation Kit ​All classes incorporate writing into the lessons​,​ whether it is expository​,​ narrative​,​ persuasive​,​ or creative writing. I have numerous Literature Kits available right now​,​ and I'm adding new ones all the time. Check my website frequently for updates. Plus​,​ if you sign up for my newsletter​,​ I'll give you my Annotation Guide for free! acouchreaders.com
