SchoolhouseTeachers.com is the curriculum site of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, the trade magazine for homeschool families. I am not usually drawn to online curriculum, so I was a bit surprised to see all a Yearly Membership made available in one place, with more than 300 classes for preschool through high school, as well as a few courses for parents, this resource review will highlight a few family favorites.

Drive Thru History is for students in middle school through high school. SchoolhouseTeachers.com currently offers Ancient History and American History. Both great for your visual learner! My girls say "History is fun!" because Dave Scotts adds a little humor to each episode.

Drive Thru History: Ancient History offers twelve 45 minute episodes and each epidose includes a worksheet, essay questions, answer key, and certificate of completion. In this course, students will explore more than 2500 years of history with host Dave Scotts as he takes you on a tour through Rome, Greece, Turkey, and Byzantium.

Drive Thru History: American History offers twelve 45 minute episodes and each episode includes a worksheet, essay questions, answer key, and certificate of completion. In this course, students will discover the New World to the end of the American Revolution. Dave Scotts takes you to places where the nation was born, shares facts about history you never heard, and has a great deal of fun along the way.

Daily Math is for students in middle school. This is NOT a complete math curriculum. Daily Math offers worksheets to help reinforce math concepts. Worksheets cover place value, standard measurements, geometric shapes, ordinal numbers, number patterns, rounding numbers, writing numbers as words or digits, associative property, distributive property, cumulative property, working with zeros, orders of operation, factors, multiples, divisibility, prime numbers, fractions, percentages, decimals, subtracting negative numbers, roman numerals, exponents, area, perimeter, circumference, angles, and basic math facts. Great for the student who needs just a little extra practice!

ASL Adventures is for students in middle school through high school. This course introduces students to American Sign Language. Teacher, Sandra Heflin, offers fifteen video-based lessons and each lesson includes printable resources and a lot of supplementary materials to help students progress through the course.

Lighting the Way is for students in elementary school; but my daughter in 5th grade still enjoys this curriculum. This course offers video-based history that studies the lives of heroes of the Christian faith through animated stories, and each series includes a downloadable student pack and leader's guide. SchoolhouseTeachers.com currently offers The John Bunyan Story, The Corrie Ten Boom Story, The John Wesley Story, The Samuel Morris Story, The Amy Carmichael Story, and The Eric Lidell Story.

Applecore is for the homeschool teacher who needs a little help with recordkeeping. SchoolhouseTeachers.com offers members a silver membership which includes attendance, course tracker, grade reporting, portfolio, and report cards.

SchoolhouseTeachers.com also offers Computer Courses! Most jobs require a high degree of proficiency when it comes to technology. Students in middle school through high school can get a head start and learn skills that will give them the advantage in today's world. SchoolhouseTeachers.com currently offers Experience Videomaking, How to Use Microsoft Word, Internet Entrepreneurship for Teens, Keyboarding, SQL Server Beginner Course, and Web Game Design.

These are just a few family favorites; but SchoolhouseTeachers.com offers so much more. A one-year membership cost $139. One fee serves your entire family.
