Hi, I'm Dachelle. I am the owner of Literary Adventures for Kids and I want to help you to teach high school literature in a way that is easy for you and fun for your teen.
It's scary! The whole idea of homeschooling high school can be intimidating.
Will I be able to teach language arts?
Will my kids be able to graduate?
Will they be prepared for college... or life?
Yes, teaching high school is a little scary... especially if it's a subject that makes you uncomfortable. When my oldest started high school I planned, researched, and panicked. How could I possibly teach all these subjects? I hadn't had some of these classes in 20 years!
That's when I had the brilliant idea to turn over some of these responsibilities to someone else so I could focus on other parts of our homeschool. So, I hired out the subjects that scared me. I enrolled my son in class and I relaxed.
Let us help you teach Language Arts!
This literature course covers all you need for a full high school language arts credit. Your student will study literature, literary elements, grammar and writing.
And the best part?
You don't have to do a thing! It's all done for you!
Let Literary Adventures for Kids put a halt to those doubts. You can provide your teen with a full language arts curriculum they can work on independently. And, you can have peace of mind.
“Linking poems with memorable movies is a brilliant method of making poetry more interesting and understandable to students, and that’s the real value of the Poetry and a Movie course."
- Owner of Cathy Duffy Reviews
The word "Poetry" brings on many images, but is poetry relevant today?
Teaching classic poetry to teenagers can be difficult. Teens want new and exciting things to learn and they believe anything older than themselves is ancient. Why on earth would they want to study poets who have been dead for decades or even centuries?
Our poetry study for high school not only teaches your teen about poets and their poetry, but they will also be learning about how classical material is still utilized in our modern culture.
Teens seem to be permanently attached to their devices. Instead of fighting the inevitable, we bring the poets to your teen through those very devices.
This poetry study for high school is actually fun for teens!
This poetry study for high school was created to help teach teens in a way that appeals to multiple learning styles and embraces technology to enrich the learning.
Through the use of movies and engaging videos, we introduce the classics to a new generation. We bring the master poets into the 21st century with the help of technology.
With a simple formula, we bring these classic poems to life and start engaging your student in a literature adventure.
We start by teaching your student how poetry can be approached from multiple angles: history, form, and analysis.
Next your student will learn the literary elements found in the poems and use their new knowledge to create their own poetry.
And then, we see how modern screenwriters incorporate the master poets into modern movies.
Our new course, Poetry and a Movie, adds all the elements you need for a language arts curriculum your student will love. Take a look inside!

“Not only do you learn about revered poets, you get to enjoy some classic movies along the way. Mom and dad will enjoy completing this course with their children and diving deep into poetry."

“My daughter is excited about poetry. That very idea was a shocker. She cried for 2 days solid when we went to look for her Language Arts program for high school. No way did she want to do poetry. I almost didn't show her the course. After she looked inside she said, "Hey, this looks fun!" then zoomed off to find the books and movies.
I was shocked, but what really made me excited? She told her DAD all about it. My kids NEVER talk to their dad about their schoolwork.
This mini-course is a month long study on the master poet, Edgar Allan Poe. Learn about the poet. his poetry and literary elements. Finish the month with a movie inspired by the poet.
Then, enroll now and relax! Everything is ready for you to start on a poetry adventure!
