Economics for Everybody seeks to remedy the confusion over how to teach economics in your homeschool. It not only explains how economics works, it shows how economic freedom is directly related to religious freedom; it explores the differences between socialism, interventionism, and free markets; and it explains how stewardship is at the heart of a healthy economic system.

Modern Parables is an original film-based Bible study series on Jesusí parables. It uses short films combined with teaching by pastors and in-depth study materials to create an entirely new learning experience. It seeks to re-create the emotional immediacy that Jesusí 1st-century audience felt when hearing the parables. It does this by using some of the best parable scholarship and exploring it through creative filmmaking. The gut-level understanding made possible by the films is intended to drive listeners into a deeper understanding of the Bible.

We used the program for the first 15 lessons over the summer break. The program is very well organized: English grammar, than Latin grammar, then reading and translating Latin passages from the Bible. The teacher made Latin easy to learn. I used to watch the videos with my kids 10 and 13 years old in the evening after work, and have them do the worksheets, either by themselves or together after watching videos.

They enjoyed the teacher's jokes, and teaching style, integration of English grammar, and uncovering of English words derived from ...(more)

My 12 year son seems to really enjoy this Latin program. He keeps asking me, Mom, can I do Latin? And the best part is listening to him learn and wanting to do more. So far we a very happy with this progam.
Pam W, Co-op Member
Easy to adapt for middle school or high school. My 6th grader is enjoying the teacher and is learning a lot. My husband and I are also enjoying learning Latin through Visual Latin.
Jerri, Co-op Member
The kids ASK to do Latin. That's never happened before! The teacher is THAT entertaining. I love it that his goal is for the students to read the Latin Vulgate in 2 years. We're on Lesson 13 of the 1st year, so I cannot attest to that, but we DO know more about Latin. I would not say that it is as "solid" as other programs. What I mean by that is that it feels like we're going across a chasm on a wobbly rope bridge instead of a brick wall. But, you get across! With other programs, the steps taken are more like "baby steps," so that you...(more)

My 13 y/o daughter and 12 y/o son are learning tons and ENJOYING learning Latin. Just enough info without going overboard and no jingles which my son really appreciates. My husband was impressed when after 4 weeks my daughter spouts out in Latin during a conversation together. I would recommend to anyone who likes a no nonsense approach to learning Latin that is engaging. Children are able to complete lessons on their own and require very little support on my end.

I researched many different Latin Programs and scoured the vendor hall at the local HS conference looking for an engaging Latin program. In numerous blogs, Visual Latin continued to come up. After watching a few of the sample videos with my son, we decided to try it. I was very thankful to see Visual Latin come up on the HS buyers coop. We're excited to begin in the fall.

Visual Latin is the second program we've tried. We were ready to give up on Latin before finding this. Here's what my 6th and 3rd graders have to say about Visual Latin:
"It's awesome!"
"Visual Latin is actually fun! And we're actually learning stuff! The old one was boring enough to make us fall asleep!"
Janice D, Co-op Member
Our 14-year-old finds both Visual-Latin 1 and WordUp (also by Compass Classroom) very easy to understand. He finds them just as entertaining as the British cartoon Minimus the Mouse, which is Latin suitable for much younger kids. Our teenage son said the Compass instructor, Dwane Thomas, "gets the point across and does a good job". Thomas uses Ecclesiastical Latin (Church pronunciation), whereas I was taught Classical pronunciation, but the transition is quick and effortless. I like Visual-Latin 1 because it also covers English grammar and Bibl...(more)

We are extremely happy with our Visual Latin purchase. This is the third Latin program we have tried and I can unequivocally say it is the best of the three. It is easy to follow (as easy as something can be as regards Latin learning) and it is able to keep the attention of my teenagers as the others were unable to. While the declensions can pose a problem, the speed at which you learn is completely up to you. You can always replay something that may be more difficult to understand. The program keeps interest by teaching the student to mak...(more)

When we first started Visual Latin, I was not expecting much. Boy was I surprised!

My twelve-year-old twins were captivated from the start. They enjoyed watching the humor-infused videos and learning Latin bit by bit. Worksheets and quizzes reinforce the video material.

I had never studied Latin, but it's fun to follow along with the girls. I often catch my older kids checking out the screen during the lessons. Visual Latin makes language learning simple and fun.

Surprisingly, the kids are learning and understanding Eng...(more)
