Adding just the right amounts of technology and adventure are the keys to engaging your teen in the classics while still checking off the boxes for a high school literature credit.

Everything changed when my kids turned into teenagers.

All my methods of inspiring and motivating them went out the window along with read-alouds and morning time.

Convincing them to cooperate with siblings and finish their school assignments became a daily battle.

At one point, I almost gave up. I almost decided to say goodbye to our sweet homeschool and enroll them in traditional school.

Fortunately, it didn't come to that.

Instead, I discovered a way to inspire my teenagers to read again and still sneak in grammar, spelling, vocabulary, and even writing projects!

The Magic Reading Loop

When you make connections to the literature you're reading, you will remember it for years.

It becomes a part of who you are.

Smell that apple pie? It reminds me of grandma's recipe we baked when we read Charlotte's Web.

The Society gives your students the tools they need to build those connections, improve reading comprehension, become great readers and writers who are able to express themselves eloquently.

Your teenagers can be excited to read great classic literature and you don’t have to fight them anymore. 

(Well, with reading. You may still have to discuss that outfit!)

I know because I was where you are. 

I was struggling to get a positive reaction about pretty much anything from my teens. But, doing literature assignments? That was like pulling teeth. 

Why would they want to sit down and read a book written forever ago when they could be chatting with their friends on social media?

What is the appeal in a classic book with a sophisticated vocabulary? These are kids who text in acronyms with little to no punctuation.

And, don't get me started about grammar or writing assignments! Some days I just gave up the battle and hoped they learned to write in coherent sentences on their own.

So, one day I sat down with a friend and we came up with a plan.

Our plan was simple.

We would create a literature study that was comprised of classic literature, grammar, and writing projects but also used technology in the form of apps, movies, videos, and experimentsPlus, we threw in a few snacks for good measure.

It wasn’t using the tried-and-true methods; and it went against the prevailing traditional thinking, but it was brilliant and it worked.

We created an amazing course that introduced our teens to classic poets like Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, William Butler Yeats, and Dylan Thomas. 

But, we didn’t stop there.

We kept creating courses. And, this time, we invited them to experience the works of Harper Lee, Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.

And, the teens loved it!

But, even better, the moms were thrilledThe stress of finding a way to teach the classics to their kids was gone. They could relax and enjoy homeschooling a little more.

Poetry Books
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become."
- C. S. Lewis -

I've been there...

Now, I know you’re thinking that creating an online course for literature is nothing new. You’ve probably tried plenty of courses over the years.

And, you’ve probably tried plenty of ways to make sure your teen is getting everything they need to graduate and lead a successful life.

I know the struggles of trying to teach a teenager. There’s all this pressure to not only educate them but to do it in a way that motivates them and checks off all the boxes for a high school credit.

It’s an enormous burden.

  • How can you possibly provide everything your teen needs?
  • Will they succeed in life?
  • Will they have all their credits to graduate?
  • Will they become responsible members of society?

I get it. Being a homeschool parent is hard. Being a homeschool parent of a teen is beyond exhausting.

Like I said, I was once in your shoes.

I had a teen who had lost his love of reading. He saw no advantage in spending hours reading a book when he could spend that time on PlayStation or baseball.

It was that horrible feeling of watching him become an adult and questioning if I was doing enough for him that made me want to come up with a better way.

That “way” started with going to where my teen was. If technology was what got his attention, then I would use it to my advantage (and ultimately, his).

So we spent hours and days immersed in novels, vocabulary, and literary elements. We researched rabbit trails, hands-on activities, and writing projects. It became our passion and eventually it won-over our teens.

There WAS a better way and we had proved it worked -- with our own kids.

Let us help you.

What's In It For You?

The tricky part in creating any curriculum is making it work for the homeschool teacher and the student. You can't have one without the other.

If we designed a curriculum that was completing all the checkboxes for the teacher and didn't consider if it was appealing to the student, then moms would have a harder time getting their kids to do the work.

Alternatively, we couldn't create a curriculum that was all fun and exciting for the kids but didn't give them a solid education.

So we combined the best of both and created a curriculum that checks off the boxes for the homeschool moms and the teens!

Let's Be Honest...

You really have two options:

  1. Keep researching and trying new literature curriculums hoping one of them will click, or
  2. let us show you how to take the burden of high school literature credits off your shoulders.

Don’t look back on these years and think “If I had just had more time and was less overwhelmed.”

The key to inspiring your teens to read classic literature is to go to where they are.

Open the doors to technology.

Bring the classic stories into the 21st century.

Make them appealing to a new generation.

Show them that even though the world changes, people remain the same. We still need love, compassion, justice, friends, and family. Our clothing, dialect, and opinions may have changed, but our basic humanity is still the same.

So, introduce them to a world of adventure, intrigue, mystery, and conflict. And, help them become excited about literature again.
