The guidelines and advice in Designing Your Language Arts Curriculum will help you navigate the complicated waters of teaching such a broad field as language arts.

  • What is essential?
  • What is optional?
  • What are some effective methods for teaching?
The ten topics covered are grammar, spelling, vocabulary, poetry, reading, literature, building a library, writing, Shakespeare, and public speaking.


The eBook is in convenient PDF format, perfect for reading on your eReader or computer. It is formatted simply and without photos so that you can print it and add it to your homeschool notebook for easy reference.

Kathi, a blog reader, summed up my reasons for converting my posts into an ebook:

“I have so enjoyed these 10 days of language arts! It is so easy to just ‘get through’ our curriculum that I fail to take time out to make language arts the delight to my children that it was to me growing up…the reenactments of Julius Caesar’s speech on the steps, delving through antique books to find a poem to memorize and share, making neat little lists of writing prompts…

Thank you for giving us this gourmet smattering of the stuff of which happy language arts learners are made! It is pertinent enough that I would {gasp} pay for this in download form. It’s worth the effort of having it all gathered for me and put in one place to refer to.”

Hi Jimmie,
Does the ebook includes all the external link that you posted during your 10 days Language Arts blog?
Thank you

Yes. The links are embedded into the ebook. (The Amazon links have been removed altogether, but there is a separate page for all recommended books.)

Excellent Resource Jimmie! Two thumbs up!!!! Each time I read this ebook, I find a new idea to add to our homeschooling! You’ve inspired me to create an ebook for learning Spanish, too! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you~

Hi Jimmie! I am looking forward to getting into your ebook (I just bought it). I really enjoyed your series during those 10 days and what you had to say about grammar and all that goes with it. I feel our homeschool is really lacking in this department and am excited about trying something new!
Thanks so much for your insight and for your ebook!

Is it possible to view a sample page of the book? I saw you had one off to the side but it’s too small for me to see anything.

I am interested in purchasing this ebook; “Designing your Laguage Arts Program”, as we are redesigning our whole curriculum right now, my question is does this book work for any grade level or is it geared toward a specific grade level? Thanks.

Hi Jimmie, DD11 is doing a grammar program this year for 5th grade. Next year, she is starting Writing With Skill, which I think is going to be time consuming and challenging for her (though not impossible). What do you think of taking a break from grammar for 6th grade? Or maybe just a light study and not three days a week like she does now?
