Popular homeschooling products by Shurley English include textbooks, teacher's manuals and instructive audio disks. These items are available as kits for both elementary and secondary school grades.
Shurley English Homeschooling is a grammar and writing program popular with homeschooling parents. The company sells kits that contain the curriculum and material needed to teach one child for an entire school year. Each kit contains a teacher's manual, a student workbook and an introductory audio CD. Workbooks and CDs are available as individual products, but the teacher's manual product is only available as a part of a kit.
Teacher's manuals have planning materials that include scripts and questions to ask students for each lesson objective. These scripts are especially helpful to parents with no teaching experience and who are new to homeschooling. Each chapter takes about a week to complete, with individual lessons taking between 20 to 45 minutes each.
Shurley English offers workbooks for younger grades and textbooks for older children. Both workbooks and textbooks allow students to practice and test what they have learned. Interaction with parents is encouraged. These books contain assignments that include songs and practice items that homeschooled students use to help make learning concrete. Students use the workbooks to learn vocabulary, language and grammar skills; workbooks also contain tests for students to use to demonstrate competence in an area.
