Homeschool Middle School English -- Oak Meadow Review

Are you looking for a quality English program for your middle schooler?

We discovered Oak Meadow Homeschool Curriculum when my daughter was in the elementary years.  We loved using Oak Meadow for social studies and English starting in 4th grade and all the way up through the high school years. 

AND Their middle school English courses were some of our favorites!

Oak Meadow English 8 is all about introducing the components of good literature to your middle schooler, while providing a number of ways to encourage them to write.  

Oak Meadow Publications was first started by a teacher who was trained in the Waldorf method.  However they are very relaxed in their approach to Waldorf, and are also aligned to state standards.  They grew to a large educational publishing company and now offer homeschool curricula for all subjects, from K - 12.

All of their courses follow standards, yet they have kept their creative hands-on approach to learning all the way, in my opinion.  As a family, we had been using Oak Meadow curriculum for English and history for many years.

We love how Oak Meadow's focus is on hands on learning and it works to meet the child when she is:  head, hands and heart.  It's high school courses are college prep level.

And their approach worked great for my daughter.

It challenged her, held her interest, and also really motivated her to become a good writer.  It also provided a structure that helped her to focus and organize her studies.

Through this course, literature became something that my daughter looked forward to each day.

She enjoyed learning about plot, setting, point of view, and characterization. But she when she got to  symbols, and foreshadowing, she was enthralled.

Oak Meadow 8 includes eight novels, grammar study, a number of writing assignments to choose from and more.   The novels in this course include......
