3 Types of Homeschool High School Language Arts Learners

In my years as homeschool high school academic advisor, I noticed that there seem to be 3 types of homeschool high school Language Arts learners. Which types are your teens?

Here are the 3 types of homeschool high school Language Arts learners:

*I LOVE to delve into one topic and really get a feel for it!

This is the homeschool high schooler who wants an entire year’s reading to be on one subject like British Literature, American Literature, World Literature (or maybe, 7Sisters’ ever-popular Great Christian Writers).

These teens will want to leverage their Literature topic in many of the papers they write- especially their research paper and/or short story. They will love 7Sisters Writing Guide Bundles that include the writing they need for the year (essays, research paper, short story, poetry). Our Writing Guides have been vetted by homeschool high schoolers- that’s why they are so popular!

*DON’T make me a prisoner to one topic for the year. I’ve got so much to learn and explore…being stuck on one topic will stifle me!

This is the homeschooler who will be happiest mixing and matching different genres. You will want a balance of quality reading and fun.

At least 9 of their books (one per month) should include a solid exploration of the book without killing it. That’s what 7Sisters Literature Study Guides are all about. Our local homeschoolers let us know they want to learn background information, vocabulary, and relevant questions  with critical thinking and comprehension. BUT they hate busywork, so we listened.

Visit 7Sisters store to choose the Literature Study Guides for your teens. (Download Anne of Green Gables for free and get a taste of 7Sisters’ unique style, plus Anne is a guide that is adaptable for the whole family- not just high school.)

Let the *DON’T make me a prisoner* teens pick out their Writing Guides for the year. Tool through the 7Sisters store with them and they’ll find the right-feel essay guide, research writing guide, short story and poetry guides.

*Just give it to me and let me get it done!

These are the teens who want to relax and know that the decisions about books and curriculum were already made. They just want to take the text and get it done. Give them a mix of topics and they’ll be more interested. Include writing in the curriculum and they don’t have to get stressed trying to figure out “when I’m done”- all the Language Arts is in one place. These are the homeschool high schoolers who thrive with a “boxed” curriculum.

  1. Is language arts also an English part of the class? What I’m wanting is her 11th grade English class to go along with the lit part. Not 2 separate classes/curriculums.

  2. Hi Deanna,

    The semester guides are a great way to ease into homeschool high school Language Arts (without killing your teen). We created the semester guides at the request of new homeschooling families! It will coach your teen through literature and writing, including vocabulary and editing built into the curriculum. Wishing you and yours have lots of fun this year!

  3. I stumbled onto the 7 sisters homeschool site for the first time today. I’m starting our homeschool in 3 days and I was feeling horrible about the my high schooler’s English and Literature options…until now! I downloaded your Anne of Green Gables guide and read thru it. I LOVE it! This is what I was envisioning for his literature but I didn’t know how to execute it. Thank you!!! Now I just need to decide if I want to hand pick literature guides or buy the Part A and Part B semester guides. It looks like the semester courses may include more information on easing my son into writing. Do you have any suggestions?
