Hi, I'm Dachelle.

I am the owner of Literary Adventures for Kids and I want to help you to teach high school literature in a way that is easy for you and fun for your teen.

I'm a former traditional teacher turned homeschool mom. I have a passion for literature and for adding adventure to our homeschool. I've organized several book clubs in my community. At Literary Adventures for Kids I take my experience as a traditional school teacher and use it to add that little bit of magic to your student's education.

This study was created to help teach kids in a way that appeals to multiple learning styles and embraces technology to enrich the learning.

Poetry and a Movie ~ Poe MiniCourse is a month long study. It is one of ten poet studies in the full Poetry and a Movie course.

Poetry and a Movie makes the Master Poets appealing and relevant to the high school crowd through the effective use of technology. Your teen will not only be learning about poets and their poetry, they will also be learning about literary elements and how classical material is still utilized in our modern culture.

This poetry study is actually fun for teens!

"My teen told her dad about it."

“My daughter is excited about poetry. That very idea was a shocker. She cried for 2 days solid when we went to look for her Language Arts program for high school. No way did she want to do poetry. I almost didn't show her the course. After she looked inside she said, "Hey, this looks fun!" then zoomed off to find the books and movies.

I was shocked, but what 
really made me excited? She told her DAD all about it. My kids NEVER talk to their dad about their schoolwork."
