Time4Learning offers an online, interactive middle school curriculum that can be used for homeschool, afterschool, summer study, and skill building.
The middle school curriculum is organized into grade levels with the primary focus on math, language arts, and science which are standards-based and correlate to state standards. Social Studies is offered as a complimentary bonus and can be used as a supplement. Foreign language learning is also available for an additional fee. Materials are taught using a combination of animated lessons, instructional videos, worksheets, quizzes, tests, and both online and offline projects.
Time4Learning’s middle school curriculum provides students with the tools to work independently, study confidently, and excel, all while in the comfort and safety of their own home. Middle school students have access to three grade levels at a time to review and move forward when needed. The lessons are self-paced and engaging, allowing students to learn in a pressure-free environment, while developing a love for learning at the same time.
Homeschooling Middle School with Time4Learning – A Curriculum Overview
Time4Learning can be used with a broad array of student types, learning styles, and homeschooling methods. The majority of the families using Time4Learning are homeschoolers. Some use it as their primary curriculum, while others use it to supplement or as part of an eclectic approach.
Time4Learning’s middle school curriculum is provided in a self-paced, ad-free environment where students can focus on their lessons, and not feel rushed or pressured. Middle school is a crucial time for physical and mental development in children. Time4Learning recognizes the need for educational growth, but more importantly how essential it is to build confidence in young adults. Students can select different grade levels per subject and parents can create a schedule that is best suited to their child’s needs. Time4Learning tracks the progress of the student so that parents can measure their child’s strengths and possible areas for concern. The lessons are presented within an automated, student-paced system thatteaches the lessons, reinforces concepts, time-stamps online activities (for attendance), tracks progress, and keeps printable reports that can be turned into student transcripts or included with homeschool portfolios. The lessons combine multimedia lessons, instructional videos, printable worksheets, quizzes, tests and both online and offline projects that focus largely on developing higher order thinking and writing skills. Middle school students also have access to their very own educational playground where they can take a break, as a reward after lesson time.
Middle school language arts (6th – 8th grade) focuses on phonics, fluency, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, reading comprehension, writing processes and more. It is organized into two sections: Language Arts & Language Arts Extensions, which are recommended for use together. View our language arts curriculum overview page for more information.
Middle school math (6th – 8th grade) is organized by grade level and includes lessons that cover the concepts of number theory, value and meaning, measurement, geometry, number sense, geometry, spatial reasoning, data analysis, probability, pre-algebra and more. View our math curriculum overview page for more information.
Middle school science is organized into three primary courses that correlate to state standards: Earth/Space Science, Life Science, and Physical Science. The courses cover materials typically offered at the sixth to eighth grade level. In addition, Nature of Science is also provided as a supplement with each of the middle school courses. View the middle school science overview page for course descriptions.
It is also important to mention that Time4Learning is a curriculum provider– not a school. Therefore, Time4Learning cannot be accredited, nor can homeschooled students “graduate” from Time4Learning.
The Time4Learning Curriculum Structure
Time4Learning has been refined through years of feedback from educators, parents, and students. Subjects are organized into chapters composed of interactive lessons, printable worksheets, quizzes and tests. Students are guided through the activities at their own pace by an automated system.
When students log in, they choose a subject, select a chapter, pick a lesson and complete the activities. A bright green arrow tells them where they left off, and completed work is clearly labeled with a check-mark or a gold star. Visual and auditory prompts guide students through the lessons, making it easy for even young learners to follow, and an online playground (controlled by parents) rewards and motivates them to finish their lessons.
Parents get access to printable lesson plans, teaching tools, detailed reporting and parental support through our online Parent Forum.
