Abeka Academy Curriculum Review
I use the A Beka Academy curriculum for home schooling. I do this because they utilize A Beka books which emphasize Christian education and learning.
We use the DVD’s that came with the curriculum to do the daily assigned lessons. The children are given lesson plan books to follow along with the DVD’s and do their homework.
The teachers on the DVD’s are quite knowledgeable. The best classes that I have found so far are English and math. These subjects can be hard to teach so utilizing the DVD’s and the teacher’s editions of the books really helped me get through the subjects.
The curriculum is great because as the children get older, they can utilize different subjects like literature and foreign languages. These can be hard to teach but being able to teach it to a child one on one helps them to learn the subject matter much better than in a crowded classroom.
I like how I administer quizzes but tests are sent off so that report cards can be issued. It is incredibly convenient because at the end of each term there are a lot of essays, exams, and projects that need to be sent off for grading.
The school provides great report cards and the children do well on their state standardized tests that they are required to take. All in all, A Beka Academy’s homeschooling curriculum is great for Christian parents who want to teach their children at home. The daily lesson plans make the whole process much easier and the curriculum is tough yet fair so that children can learn as much as possible.
